I am not sure where we got Trixie. After all I was only about 4 years old. We lived on a farm so she had lots of room to run and play with us.
Trixie was some sort of terrier mix. She was white with big black and brown spots.
Apparently she had a romantic tryst because she gave birth to a litter of several pups. We named them all but the only name I remember is Ugly. He was a homely little guy... so homely he was cute.
One day my little brother and I walked into the house with angelic expressions on our faces. "Mommy I don't know how it happened but all the puppies are down the toilet hole."
We had an outdoor toilet and my brother and I had tossed all the puppies in.
My father started to laugh. He actually fell out of his chair onto the floor trying to catch his breath.
Mom rushed out to try to rescue them.
She managed to get all the puppies out. She had to clean them off using water from the pump and some dish soap.
Daddy was still on the floor laughing when she finished. Mom was not happy with any of us.
By the way all of the puppies went to good homes except for Ugly. We kept him.
