Lindy was three years old when she came into my life, a rescue who had seen at least two previous homes. She was overweight and terribly afraid of just about anything. With some time and patience, she blossomed into one of the most incredible beings I’ll ever know. For more than eleven years, she was my cherished companion, my therapist, my confidant, and my champion. Hers was a quiet energy, calm and consistent, she rarely made noise, but she made her presence known. Just whispering her name would ease my stress. She was a terrier, through and through, far tougher than her 15 pounds would imply. It was always her in charge, not the other family Rottweilers. She was always smart, and sometimes a little naughty. She went with me to work, always wanted to be my side, she slept by my side with her head on the pillow, she flew with me on trips, she went (in a backpack) on hikes. Her photo would appear in work powerpoint presentations. A tracing of her paw is tattooed on my ankle. She was the best part of me, and I was incredibly lucky to have known her.

A donation was made in Lindy's memory and the memorial was created on May 4, 2018.
