I am so sorry to say that Trixie's days have come to an end. I've written about it on my blog here. She was a faithful, loving companion, and I am going to miss her more than I can say.

Ohhh noooo! I'm sorry! Loosing an animal can be hard to take. I had a cat named "Trixie" and I still miss her. Sighs..... I'm sorry for your loss.

When I was born my parents got me a dog (no child should grow up without a dog). My dad named her "Trixie". Anyone my age would know why. When I was 17 at the University of Idaho I got a call at my dorm in Theophilus Tower (Only in Idaho would an 11 story structure be called a tower). It was my dad. He said he had some bad news for me. My dad was not the kind of guy to use the telephone at all (that was mom's department). I immediately assumed something had happened to my mom. He said very directly as was his style, "Son, I had to put your dog down." My reaction would not have been any different had he said he had had to put my mom down. I dropped the phone. I could not attent class. Actually, I did not really need a good reason to not attend class. He had waited until I left to do what he had to do. It was tougher on him than me. This was a dog that dad had once jumped into the frigid water of the North Fork to save. This was a dog that had accompanied him on every fishing and camping trip for 17 years. At 17, Trixie was not able to function as a dog. Losing a long-time companion is tragic whether they are human or just think they are. I have had many dogs since Trixie (not a cat guy), but none like her. If fact, some of their names I cannot even recall. You can't feel sorrow for the death of a 17 year old dog. She had had a good run. It is only sad for those of us that are left behind.

I'm not sure exactly why, but in the past year I have witnessed the passing of a number of amazing animal spirits from the waking world. Perhaps they all decided to go to a place where they could meet and run free together?

My heart breaks for your loss, and rejoices in the companionship you've had with this dear sweet spirit.
