Trigger was a GSP that lived a full 13 years of life. His memorial struck me with how short life is. Every day should be lived cherishly. Trigger was the only dog in the house and was considered one of the children. His passing was the toughest for me to endour ever. I suppose because Trigger was there each day offering his full trust to my wife and I. This is trust that is almost next to impossible to find in today’s world of fast times and technology. I learned from Trigger’s passing that we are all a cycle of life on this planet. We don’t have that long to enjoy each other. Similar to plants that grow all summer in the mountains and pass. Next spring after the snow melt in the mountains new plants sprout up and the cycle of life starts over again. Part of my soul was missing for a few days after Trigger’s passing. When the rest of my soul has come back, I have realized that I must enjoy life more and work towards my goals all the harder. My following of the news stories and politics are now gone. I live for my family and I. For now on, I’ll enjoy life more. Trigger was all about birds. He loved to hunt in the high moutain valleys for Blue Grouse, since up in Hayden, CO we are limited to no upland birds. His first year out he got quilled by two different porcipines in one day. Trigger also swam half way across Lake John just to fetch a duck. Trigger also insisted on riding on the atv at all times while camping in the mountains. Trigger had it out with a Bull Snake near Maybell, Colo. Trigger also had full house priviledges including the couch, loveseat, and the bed. He was one of the family. He was also an excellent bisquit eater. Trigger has had a good memorial. Includes an Aspen tree near Meeker with his engraving.
