We found Trusty through Petfinder. He was in Cleveland. He was born on our second anniversary. He had the cutest wrinkles between his eyes. He was originally named Dudley. When we first met him he had mange. He then got parvo but survived. We got to take him home in October of 2006.
Trusty loved playing in the sprinkler and basking in the sun. He would sit out back on the hill and survey his kingdom. He loved chasing off those pesky squirrels who dared come on to his property. Trusty loved water. He loved chewing his bone. He would bring it in the room to make sure we saw he had it before chewing on it.
I will always remember how Trusty was always there for us. He would follow us from room to room. He had an expressive face. Trusty could tell you what he wanted. Trusty taught us what unconditional love is and how to always be there.
Pet memorial services gave us a place to talk about all the happy times we had with Trusty.
