Oh my goodness, well today we said farewell to our Trevor Bear 😦 With a heavy heart I am reaching out and asking for kind words, thoughts and prayers. This past year has been filled with so many more downs than ups, in fact we just recently moved to Indiana…two weeks now is all we’ve been here. Trev had done tremendous with the move and all, but one week before our moving date, he got snake bit right in our back yard. It was a poisonous snake at that. We are guessing a baby copperhead. Never even seen it while we were out. Trev just started limping and we got to looking and sure enough…two fang marks!


Our vet was like, well, if it’s gonna happen, this is the way you want it to happen. One fang only grazed his skin, the other bite mark was faint. The one bite mark turned yellow and green as the days passed. Trev didn’t miss a beat though. He was put on a full course of antibiotics and by the last day of meds, the marks were a distant memory. Can you even believe that? Trev had angels already surrounding and protecting him.

So, here we are…a family, heartbroken and trying to live life without hearing that little jingle every time Trev entered a room. We now have two empty dog beds, an empty bitey dish and an old lonely leash.

When we dropped Trev off at the Crematory, we unwrapped his body to love on him one last time and this is what our baby boy said:

“There now, little star sweeper, dream on.” Yes, we LOVE Lady and The Tramp and sing that little lullaby almost daily now. It was the most perfect thing to say to Trev at that precious moment.



It’s dinner time and I hear no jingle at my feet. The silence is deafening my friends. Here are some farewell pics we took yesterday with our silver fox:








Trevor Bear’s OBARKtuary
Trevor Bear left our sides when he was 15 years young and has already begun popping up his sweet ewokian head across the Rainbow Bridge whenever he hears a new voice, hoping it is one of us, to welcome us home forever.

Trevor answered to a million or more names including Beary, Bearsabus, Bubby, Boogie, BooBear, BooBearyus, Beary Crocker, Pupcake, TaterBear, Love Muffin, Tootles, BubbyLaBoo, Sugar Bear, BearsLaRoneous, Sugar, Sweetheart, Precious Paws, Trevvy, Gizmo, Ewokers and Budders to name just a few.

Trev’s favorite things in this life were taking long walks with his daddy, getting chest rubs, ear scratches, lying beside us on the couch, mom’s homemade treats, his memory foam doggie bed, our bed, letting the wind blow through his fur, riding in the car sticking his head out of the passenger side window, chasing and tossing his tennis balls and all of his stuffed animals.

As the years passed, his gray hair unfurled, just like his love. Walks became shorter and cuddling became more cherished. His favorite mottos in life were “Bark Less, Wag More” and “When In Doubt…Nap.”

Trevor was a witness to our marriage and the birth of our child. Our baby says Trevvy is the bestest bubby in the whole wide world and he will be blowing kisses at the sky and sending His love to Heaven whenever he thinks of his bubby.

To Trevor:

This tiny blog has been an honor for me to share with all the dog lovers of the world. Thank you Buddy for the privilege of sharing your life with us. We will never be the same my furrbaby.

Oh how we will miss your little jingle that fluttered all about your collar. Every time we heard your jingle, a smile was sure to follow. You were our sunshine little Trevvy. May you be blessed to run free without any more pain through the hills and plains of Heaven. May you also know the gift of endless treats. Your obsession was treats, treats and more treats. We long to see your sweet face again and cross the Rainbow Bridge together.


Thank You, Father God, for the gift of our precious Trevor.

Hugs and kisses times infinity my Pupcake. WE WILL LOVE YOU ALWAYS!


Heartbroken but Blessed…

  1. We haven’t seen much from your blog for a while, but so many bloggers disappear, it is hard to keep track. Mom and I are so very sorry about Trevor. He was such a sweet little fellow. Our heart breaks for you. Mom lost her first dog almost eleven years ago and still cries about her sometimes. She always says she can’t imagine waking up with no dog to care for which is why we have several dogs. Each of us is special, but each will be devastating when our time is up. Our precious Katie is thirteen now and for a large dog, that is quite old. We cherish every day we have with her which make it all the harder when our friends lives come to an end as we fear we will lose our girl next. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you so much for sharing your precious Trevor with us.Trevor wouldn’t want you to dwell on the sadness, remember the good times and feel blessed for the time you shared until you meet again.

  11. I’m so sorry for your loss. Trevor looks like he was a sweet boy and he had a great life with you. I know how you are feeling, having lost my miniature poodle, Cinnamon, just last year when she was 12 years old, and I still miss her dearly. But our sweet pups will be watching over us from the Rainbow Bridge and we will all meet again one day.

    • Your kindness is so very much appreciated…Cinnamon, what a perfect name 🙂 12 years young, I am so sorry about your little one…I send much love and compassion your way, thank you for sharing her with me…it makes your soul feel empty, but you are so right…they are watching over us…the love they give knows no time limit or boundaries…only true dog lovers understand…Thank you again….hugs…

  12. HE WAS SO DEARLY LOVED – and there is nothing better that could be said about your sweet and adorable furbaby. Although these next few weeks will be hard – let all the wonderful memories of your years together carry you through it and know he is with so many wonderful friends over the bridge

    • Such a pleasure to hear from you…Thank you for each sweet word…it is so very hard right now…You give great advice to us…all the fun memories…and he is running free with the best of them…All of these comments…we wouldn’t be making it through this if it wasn’t for all my dog bloggin’ friends…you are pawesome and we send your such sincere thankfulness…hugs

    • Sweet Dakota!!!! So great to hear from you!!!! Thank you for taking time for us…it means the world to us…you have graced our bloggie with your visit…Please keep praying…and give your mama extra snuggles tonight…She is wonderful!!!! Hugs

  13. We’re saddened. We were “hit” 3 years ago when we lost Kenzie (westie) and just before last Christmas with Kyla (Scottie). Our advice is to fill the Cairn shaped hole in your hearts by honoring Trev with adopting a rescue. Honoring is the word because if you don’t get another terrier, Trev will wonder what he did wrong. We replaced Kenzie and Kyla with terrier mixes and they love as much or more than pure breds. Also, black dogs have problems being adopted, so I’d go for one of those. It has really helped to have a couple of dogs who were at one time on the “euthanasia list”. Kyla and Kenzie would have wanted that.

  14. We are so very to hear about Trevor, but so glad he was yours to lose. He made you the luckiest person on the planet. I hope the tears turn to smiles soon as you remember all the good times.

    • Awwww…so sweetly said…it’s like Winnie the Pooh says “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” I love your comment…Thank you so much for the smile you gave our hearts tonight…hugs

      • Wow! Who knew Winnie the Pooh was such a philosopher. Thank you for sharing. I will remember it and use it often.

  15. So sorry you had to say good bye to Trevor. He was a whole lot of personality in a little dog. He was loved.

    Lyn ❤ ❤

    • Oh my goodness, what a lovely surprise to hear from you Miss Lyn!!!! You put such a big smile on our faces today…I hope you and yours are doing well in every way…With all the craziness around us, what a blessing it is to just share a little love…Thank you for taking time out to say hello…Praying extra protection over you and yours to stay healthy and well…
      Always sending love and blessings,

      • Hi Cara, yep…it’s all about love – “this is the way.” Thank you, we’re doing really well – including our fur babies – they keep us sane. The past twelve months have been so worrying – and scary. I hope and pray that you and your family are keeping safe and well, and always wearing your masks and washing your hands. It seems crazy to say that, but it never hurts to keep it in the forefront of your mind. My dear sweet elderly neighbour (she’s 82) is Italian and she has lost her brother, sister in law and niece to Covid in Italy. Where will it all end? Lets pray the vaccinations works.
        Love and blessings right back at you sweet lady

      • My heart also goes out to you about your precious Cally…I’m so sorry…The time has just passed in the blink of an eye…They are still holding our hearts…Love like that is such a miracle…We were so blessed to have them!!!! ❤️‍🩹💗💝🐾🐾🌈
