Good-bye Trudi

Dogs are only in our lives for a short time, 
but they stay in our memories for as long as we live.

Trudi died last week and she’ll be greatly missed. Our son and his family adopted her after she had been returned to their local shelter, they loved her and she loved them in return – she especially loved our son and he reciprocated. Trudi also loved the rest of her extended adoptive family and we felt the same toward her.

Trudi was featured in this post a couple of years ago. About that time she was diagnosed with a tumor on her pancreas which hadn’t impacted her significantly until the last few months.

She always enjoyed a good walk even as her condition worsened; she took her last "I'm happy to be out here" walk just two days before she died.

Now she’s gone and many a tear has been shed, but she’s left us all with wonderful memories –


Trudi was a great dog, we were privileged to have had her in our lives – Good-bye Trudi.

So sorry to hear of this sad loss. Trudi looks to have been the best companion anyone could ever imagine in a pet. Having lost a doggy friend myself, I know the grief but also know that Trudi will warm your hearts forever. She was lucky to have a family such as yours in her life.

Yes, a good dog provides years of companionship and years more of memories.
