||Trevor - the Wonder Terrier
We are sad to announce the passing of our fine dog Trevor, at almost 14 years of age. Trevor came to us from Retrievers and Friends (then BARC) in the fall of 1999 at the age of 6 months, a terrier mix of unknown origin—and grew to a 67 pound stocky dog with a face like Benji an underbite
like a shovel, eyes like a lion, and a heart of gold.
Gentle to all he encountered, he was especially
wonderful with small children, and would get down low,
on his belly, to let toddlers pet him. He was also a
superb airplane chaser, and would run outside when one
of the big jets flew overhead to scare it away. This
behavior was enforced by the fact that he had 100%
success in keeping the airplanes away from his
Trevor led us on our daily walks, and by doing this introduced us to many people and other dogs in the neighborhood, who we otherwise would not have met. We owe some of our finest friendships to his introductions. He also reminded us of the beauty in small things—how a simple walk down the block could be an endless source of fascination and pleasure.
Trevor loved his family, and loved being in the middle of everything, including board games, and puzzles, which he liked to lie on while others were playing. We will miss him terribly, and always remember him fondly as our very fine dog, dear friend, and member of our “pack.”
