We lost our sweet Tressel, originally named Ty, on June 26, 2017.
He was one of Macy’s pups born February 2,2008. I applied for one of her puppies but I assured my husband that there was no way we would get one. Then lo and behold we got one! He gave us so much joy in his 9 years with us. He was the most loving, sweetest, NEEDIEST dog I have ever seen. Always had to be touching us in some way. He flunked out of two obedience classes so I got a personal trainer who assured me he would be off leash trained after two lessons. Well, after the third lesson he told me that Tressel’s synapses were “not firing right”. So I fired him and we just loved the crap out of him. His nicknames were numerous and included “Good Time Charlie”, “Tottie”, “Tee” and my husband’s name for him,” Numnuts.”
He had cancer that was so advanced before we even knew he was sick. He died on our deck with my husband and I both loving on him. He was a great dog. Our hearts are broken.
