5/15/06 - Trouble has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.  He went very quickly and without a fuss.  His breathing was already so shallow and fast, and it stopped within seconds of the shot being administered   He was not alone, and I believe he knew he was loved.    I also believe in my heart that he was ready to go to the bridge and be free of the pain that he was in.  He was a great dog, the kind of dog that is the whole reason humans love dogs.  I wish we could have known him longer.  We bought a dogwood tree at the garden store this afternoon and will plant it in the back in honor of Trouble.

4/17/06 - BOY OH BOY have I found a keeper if ever there was one.  Trouble is a huge boy...approx 130 pounds of complete MUSH! He was an owner surrender to a kill shelter in Manhattan. The shelter was afraid no one would adopt him and put out a plea for help so Friends of BAR stepped up and offered this boy and nice warm soft bed like he was use to having before his family gave him away.  Trouble is so very sweet he certainly did not deserve to be put in a shelter with no hope of finding another home.
He is great with the other dogs, cats and kids.  My parents had him on the farm for a bit today before I picked him up.  They showed him the cows, chickens, goats, horses, etc and he could care less about any of I said he just a sweetheart of a dog. He loves for you to pet him and take him for walks.  The previous owner walked him 4 times a day....he is excellent on the leash.
I know he is a senior but please consider giving this boy a home to call his own for his senior me you can't help but love him.  New pictures to come soon
