Rusty, The Panhandle Chihuahua

Submitted by Companion Judy (Seago) Willett
Editor's note: Judy Seago Willett is a direct descendant of the town founder of Seagoville.

In a recent email she shared a few memories of visits back to Texas:



"... Every trip we made back to the Panhandle, it seemed that I'd find a stray dog to love and play with, and twice we brought dogs back to California. One, we named Shamrock (1955), and the other was a Chihuahua (1962).

We were driving back to Lela from Shamrock and saw what appeared to be a brown paper bag in the middle of the road. My uncle Valdee slowed down and it was a little Chihuahua running as fast as it could! We pulled over and he jumped in without hesitation. We became instant friends. We inquired in town for anyone who'd lost a dog, and no one had, so I was allowed to keep him and we took him back to California.

Well. . . that dog was a traveler and every chance he got he would escape out a door. Finally one day he ran off and never came back.

We loved that little guy. . . and we always wondered how many people that dog lived with! " -
