Truman “Trudog” Pearman

Our sweet boy was almost 17 yrs. old when he passed. We adopted Truman from the animal rescue shelter 15 yrs. ago. I saw him in the large kennel just sitting there with a look on his face that said “Please get me out of here!” as the other dog in the kennel ran back and forth, barking continuously, knocking Truman over trying to get my attention. Not one bark came from Truman, just the sad look. The paper attached said he had been found walking along a road, maybe two years old, and no name. How could I pass him up. So glad I didn’t!
Always a very sweet and loving member of our family. We couldn’t have asked for a better pet and loyal friend. As our pet family grew over the years, the addition of another dog Lucy, a cat Tabby, and then one more dog Jake, Truman was always receptive and patient with these new family members as they learned the rules of the house. He was a good big brother. We would joke that Truman always wanted to be a German Shephard and often called him “Coyote Dog” as he ran the top of our hill in the backyard. He was the master of stealing your food, he once ate two trays of peanut butter cookies my sister made, and was the best floor vacuum anyone could ever want. And yes, he barked. He had us all fooled. We never mastered Ceaser’s no barking techniques with Truman. He thought that everyone who came to our door was there to see him and always greeted with excitement and licks. Truman had the most beautiful eyes and everyone thought he looked far younger then his almost 17 yrs. But inside he had gotten quite old and everyday life was very hard for him. Our time with Truman had come to an end and we had to make a very difficult decision. Which we painfully did. Rest In Peace our sweet, sweet boy. Our family was Blessed to have you in our lives for so many years. You will always be remembered. Until we meet again, Trudog, sweet dreams. Love you. Miss you.
