Minnie Rhode passed peacefully from this life Saturday, September 4, 2010, in
Martinsburg, Pa., after being a patient at Lakemont Veterinary Clinic for nearly
A Yorkshire terrier mix, she was the beloved pet of Eric Rhode, Lori Matta-Rhode, and Jaden Rhode.
Minnie began her new life with her forever
family after being adopted Oct. 15, 2000, from Action for
Animals Humane Society, a no-kill shelter in Latrobe, Pa. She was believed to be
4 years old at the time of her adoption.
Minnie had many nicknames, including Minnie Girl, Minners, Minnie-Me, Miss Minnie, and Baby Girl.
In her younger years, she loved to play ball, and when her tiny soccer ball rolled under the living room couch, she often would grunt and bark until someone retrieved it for her.
She also loved to go for walks and chase squirrels even though she never caught one.
Minnie liked to play with her brother, Max, ride in the car, and receive belly rubs. Sometimes, she would run around the dining room table and into the living room several times before jumping up on the couch to lie down.
