I rescued Trinity from a Jersey City shelter Christmas 2006. "Melissa" was her pound name. I renamed her "Trinity" in the spirit of Hope, Faith and Charity, not after the Matrix movie character.
Taking good care of Trinity resulted in a far less carefree, spontaneous lifestyle than I had been living. Yet, I love her, to no end.
She is a chow-chow mix--very mixed. She is getting up there in age but in good health. albeit a little overweight at 60+ lbs. But aren't we all?
