Trudie, A West Highland White Terrier, Inspiration for BettaWalka
Trudie, a two year old West Highland White Terrier, was the reason for the founding of BettaWalka LLC. It was while listening to the daily challenges that Trudie's Dog Walker had in managing her Dog Walking business that Chris Hall realized that he could create a better way to track and handle things.

Trudie is a classic Westie - a small dog with a big dog attitude and plenty of personality ('Pupernality') to go around. Trudie a fixture around Boston's South End, loves to chase after squirrels, run on the beach and hang out with her best friend Caileigh O'Keefe, a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
