Pet Post: Trixie

This is a new feature on AMERICAblog 3.0: Pet Posts.

In addition to the flickr widget we have on the right hand column of the blog, containing photos of our readers’ pets, we also are going to do a post a few times a week, maybe even every day if we get enough, about one reader’s pet. If you’d like us to include your pet, write to photos@americablog.com with your pet’s photo, name and breed, your name and where you live (if you don’t mind them being published), and tell us something about your pet (goofy, touching, whatever you like), and we’ll include it in our Readers’ Pets archive and we might just write a post about it too (if you send us a good graf about your pet). Make sure to put “pet” in the subject line.

Trixie

Colleen from Berkeley, CA:

We drove through a hurricane to adopt her from a vet’s office, where she and her siblings had been dropped off in a box by the door. My son Max, who has just started his second year of college, was 5 years old then. Sadly, we had to put our dear kitty down just last week on Wednesday. It was gut wrenching, and I am still crying as I write this email. But we all open our hearts to these furry family members, knowing they will surely break our hearts years later. It was so very worth it. My two rambunctious boys learned about patience, responsibility, kindness and most of all, unconditional love from our dearest Trixie. She will be very much missed.
