How Trina came into our lives

Trina could only be described as a "ball of fire". She loved to play & would engage other players even of they were reluctant at first. She loved her walks & her people but was very hesitant about sharing them. This gave her a protective nature which was challenging at times. She had so much energy that she would bound up a flight of stairs, bang on the door like Dino Flintstone. She let people into our home but when they got ready to leave, she grabbed a pant leg or 2. She was 1 of a kind


What was Trina like as a pet?

Though Trina was protective, she had a very loving side to her. Little kids loved to play with her and their giggles from her kisses were infectious. She liked car rides and going to the Dairy Quern for an ice cream cone. When we were driving, we don't know if she was scared at times because she would try to hang over us. Needless to say we had to stop that behavior or it could have been dangerous on the road. She would faithfully lay by our side no matter where we were.

Our favorite memory with Trina

When we would come home from work, she would greet us with a favorite toy in her mouth and patiently wait for us to take her on her walks. She had beautiful blackish red fur and her big expressive brown eyes would make you feel like you were the only one in the room. She loved an occasional hamburger from McDonald's or an Arby's roast beef sandwich but most of all she loved us and vice versa.

What were Trina's favorite activities?

Trina loved her walks. She liked to admire dogs from afar but was a little skittish around them. When we first met Trina, she was a puppy and had just been playing in a mud puddle. When she put her muddy paw on our mother's face, the rest as they say was history. She loved our mom and when she was teething, she would grab onto our mom's robe and accidentally would shred the bottom while hanging on for dear life. Mom didn't mind. She would trade a tattered robe any day for the love of Trina


Final words for Trina

Trina was beautiful, unique, loving and yet she had her own mind and could be stubborn if she wanted to be. She lived to be 17 years old and died when one of her hips crumbled. That day was one of the saddest days of my life. As we were all glad that she was no longer in pain, to come home to a deadened silence, anempty bowl and no warm wet dog kisses felt unbearable. We are truly thankful for you Trina. We still grieve over your loss and will continue to miss you forever.

Rest In Peace Trina
