Travis was born into a hellhole puppy mill and at a young age he made a promise to himself that if ever he got rescued he’s be the best dog his human had ever known. He’s not sure how long it all took, but one day Travis found himself being loaded up and shipped out…to freedom!
After being rescued from the hellhole, his next surprise was meeting his very own ‘forever family.’ It’s a testimony to Travis’s big heart that although having a tough start in a hellhole, he still had plenty of room in his heart to love his new ‘forever family’ where he kept his secret promise to be the best dog his human had ever known.
@TravisThePug joined Twitter and soon became a Spokes Pug Against Puppy Mills, barking his message at every opportunity. With his infectious personality and super cuteness, he was able to sway many staff to consider less privileged puppy mill pals, just like him, because they have a lot of love in their hearts to share with someone who will love them back.
Travis may have started off in a puppy mill, but he ended up a Star before crossing over the Rainbow Bridge.
When dear Travis did cross over the Rainbow Bridge, his human dad was left utterly distraught. He posted the saddest picture of Travis’s empty collar laying on his leg, with the words: “He’s gone.” To every pal who saw that piccie, it couldn’t help but bring a tear to the eye. Those two words so captured the utter desolation of losing your best friend.
To Travis’s Dad:
We wish we had a magic button to take away the pain when your pal joins us over the Rainbow Bridge. We are working on it but we don’t have it done yet.
If you saw Travis now though, you’d be crying tears of joy. As soon as we crossed the Bridge he got all his new stuff; just like I got new eyes and new kidneys, he got his new stuff!
Instead of playing my Disco Hits, Travis and I whooped it up to ‘Who Let The Dogs Out.’ Should have seen Travis bustin’ some moves. *spinning eyes* His new dance name is ‘Mr. Tummies.’ Yep, he still loves his tummy rubs. BOL !
We will take good care of Travis until one day you unexpectedly arrive over the Rainbow Bridge, where he will be on the Bridge to meet you, but meanwhile we are all keeping him busy dancing, playing, eating and napping. You will be a ‘forever family’ again…not just yet.
