Now, this isn't your ordinary, average dog.
He is soft, cuddly and has a very important job.
Like Lilly, he is another local hero.
His name is Trouble and he is anything but that!

In honor of Trouble the Dog, we are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Pepi Smart Dog.
Life has so many challenges these days for both adults and children. I love the message that Trouble is spreading around the world, no matter how big or small your troubles are, there is always hope!
I am so thankful for my furry pals who I can count on to lift my spirits when I'm down in the dumps...website, Twitter and Facebook.
