R.I.P. Trike Image
Trike, a three-legged Husky mix well known to Westporters who frequent Winslow Park and Compo Beach, died Thursday at the age of 18. Trike, who lost his right rear leg due to an accident as a pup, was adopted from a shelter in 1990 by Peter McCulloch, who moved with him to Westport in 1997. They were everyday visitors to Winslow and, in the off season, to Compo. Messaged WestportNow reader Scott Wilder: “Mostly it was because of Trike’s outgoing personality and love for life that endeared him to everyone. Trike always had a happy, inquisitive look on his face and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

  1. We are so sad to hear this news!!!  Trike was a happy and popular guy who always held his own at Winslow and Compo with the younger four-leggeds.  During his long life he experienced bad luck with the lose of his leg, but also great luck when Peter came along and rescued him and gave him an amazing life!  Trike will be missed!!!
