Are you prepared for the new duties that accompany that new puppy or older adoptee you brought home today? Have you decided what healthy food and snacks that you’ll feed them?

Have you considered what you’re going to call that precious pup who is curled up in your lap?
Dog Names that Start with 'Tr' in Pop Culture
The world of children’s literature is quite a place to traverse. It takes you from early childhood right up to preteens and teaches some incredible things in the process. Our pop culture spotlight dog is Trixie Koontz, and she is an author with some exciting things to say!
Trixie was a Golden Retriever, owned by author Dean Koontz and his wife, Gerda Koontz. She brought a personal kind of love into the lives of the Koontz family, flavoring everything with her unique sweetness and craziness, attributes which brought her into such a close relationship with the Koontz’s, going beyond that of man and his dog. Trained for companionship and service to disabled people in California, Trixie was bred to be a companion dog for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). She received 18 months of training with her puppy teacher and then six months of intensive training in the field. She was given her first assignment after graduation, even showing her free spirit when posing with the other 12 Golden Retrievers for the grad picture. The young disabled woman who received her fell in love with her and that effervescent spirit. But, alas, after about six months, Trixie began to limp. Medical testing revealed a hip joint problem which was congenital but not being noted until she started her daily service activities. Trixie needed and received joint surgery and responded well, though the operation made it necessary to “retire” her since she there was no return to service work for her after joint surgery. That’s when this fantastic animal impacted Dean and Gerda.
Given to Dean and Gerda, Trixie fulfilled a long-time desire for a dog. To say that Trixie changed their lives in remarkable and incredible ways is an understatement, one has only to read the literary works to see her influence. Dean wrote for Trixie, he wrote her thoughts, describing so many activities, excursions around the 2.5 acres of property on which she and the Koontz family lived. In the books written for Trixie, Dean describes her as “sweet, clownish, innocent, mysterious and startlingly smart.” They loved her with a bond that went beyond the grave, noting a mysterious visitation precisely three weeks after her sudden death, appearing to them as a beautiful, golden butterfly which they had seen before or since. Do they miss her? Oh yes, every minute of every day!
