As she pondered her departure from the cast and crew, Perry Mattfeld couldn’t leave out one of her closest co-stars. “Trip [played] Pretzel was just him for the last three seasons and that meant I had to develop an even closer relationship with him because it was just us.”
The actor even asked to keep Trip, but no dice. Who could possibly leave this face behind? Recalling the awkward moment, she said: “I have politely asked his owners many times if they would be open to me keeping him. because they obviously love him to death too.”
Like some of his co-stars, Trip is taking a break from the cameras and living his best canine life. “He’s in Toronto and I have to see him every day. I’m really going to miss him,” added Mattfeld. “I made promises to myself and him that I’ll keep this relationship going if it means I have to fly across the country and spend a weekend with him, but he’s a dog right now. He takes a little break and runs around Northern Ontario chasing birds and rolling in the grass. He deserves it.” He certainly deserves it, and he’ll no doubt be thrilled when Mattfeld comes to visit.
