    Today we helped dear old Trey over the bridge. I can't tell you all how much it hurts. We knew it was coming but it still came rather quickly and unexpectedly. He was a sweetheart albeit a bit strange and loony at times. He was a simple creature, a scratch on the back and a piece of human food would make him happy. He loved to love life. I'd take him outside and he'd just sun and sniff the air. In his younger years, he was probably the most gorgeous dog I've ever seen. He was always getting compliments about how beautiful he was. In his older years we became very attached to each other. He followed me around 24/7 and wouldn't go out to the bathroom unless I came with him. He was such a good boy and will be very missed.

    May he meet up at the bridge with my past shelties. I know my old Nik especially has a word or two for him. (Or more) Those two were inseparable.

    Here's some of my favorite pics from over the years:

    And my favorite pic of him ever:

    For the first time since I was 9, I don't have a sheltie in the house. It feels so empty.

    Run free, Old Man.

    I got Trey for my third birthday. Laur was jealous because she had to wait longer to get a dog. But, I ended up with Trey when he was about a year old already. I thought he was the coolest thing ever because when we babysat him once, he had been trained in agility and jumped over our couch. I immediately knew that I wanted THAT dog because he could do all these cool tricks.

    He was a good dog. A really good dog. One of the most beautiful Shelties I've ever seen (and I've seen a LOT). People always talked about how beautiful he was. When my dad and I were taking him in today, people still kept saying how beautiful he was, even though he looked all old and scraggly compared to his younger pictures. He had a way with making you laugh all the time. He'd just do something, make a weird noise, or bump into something and it'd break the silence and have people laughing. He was just such a good dog. I'm going to miss him a lot. And I know the other dogs will. Especially Bernard, he loved to lick Trey on the face all the time.

    It's just so weird that this happened almost exactly a year since Trey's best friend, Nikki, passed away. I know he'll be happy to see her again (despite the fact she might not be happy to see him again). He's been our 'old guy' for a long time now. It's going to be weird not having him around anymore.

    Run free, Buddy.

    Thank you for the hugs and condolences. Again, you guys are amazing.

    Laur and Emmy,

    My heart is with you today... Trey was a beautiful dog and I always loved seeing his pics and hearing about him.

    I know you all struggled with the decision to let him go and I am sure you made the best decision for Trey.

    I am so sorry, Laur and Emmy. Trey was a gorgeous dog and brought a lot to both your lives. I'm sure he and Nikki are keeping your mom company, one on each side. :)

    RIP Trey.

    Oh, Laurelin, I'm so, so sorry. I've always enjoyed seeing pictures of Trey. He was such a beautiful gentleman.

    Oh my God... I know we all knew this would happen one day but I can't believe it. I'm crying for you guys right now. I've always thought Trey was so striking. Every photo of him always touches me somewhere in my heart - his expression, the grey on his eyebrows and around his mouth. I just loved him, even though I never got to meet him. I can't imagine the pain you guys are in.
    I am so so so sorry.

    RIP old man Trey. You were very loved and will be sorely missed.
    I can't stop crying.

    A-w-w Trey...I can't believe it. He was such a strong presence here at Chaz, not to mention how very loved and valued he was by your family. I am so sorry for your great loss. He was a very loved dog who lived a wonderful life. Your pictures and words leave such a lovely tribute to a great friend. Rest easy Trey.

    He was absolutely gorgeous. I loved seeing pictures of him. He was lucky to have a family who cared so much about him.
