Arrival Story:
When my cocker spaniel, Missy, died, I was a basket case. My daughter dragged me to the animal shelter to get another dog, and finding Trixie helped me get over my grief for Missy. When we adopted Trixie she had no hair from the middle of her back to the end of her tail. I think that's why no one had adopted her - they probably thought it would cost a lot for vet bills to clear up they problem. Another family was looking at her in the yard at the animal shelter, and I saw that a toddler was patting Trixie on the face, and Trixied loved it and was giving the toddler kisses. I thought "That's the dog for me!" Luckily, the other family didn't take her, so I did. It turns out the hair loss was due either to a flea allergy, or she may have gotten into something while she was a stray. It didn't require any vet treatments at all, just some gentle oatmeal shampoos. and the hair grew back on it's own.

In 2007 I learned about service dogs, and that I am eligible to have one because I am legally disabled. So I had a professional dog trainer that I knew from Love on a Leash pet therapy come and train Trixie AND ME. She was my service dog until Jan 2010 when she started losing her hearing and developing cataracts. I trained a younger dog, Tiffany, to be my service dog, and Trixie retired. Now she just shadows me around the house and lives "the good life".
