A year after Wally, who is 9 ½, we adopted Dylan, a small German Shepherd. The shelter staff had to bring him outside the shelter because my husband wouldn’t go inside! Dog #2, 10 or more years old.”
Dylan with the posse.
“Several years later I adopted Gordon from an animal shelter with the idea he was going to a Corgi rescue in Missouri. My husband went with me on the hour and a half drive and before we got home we had already named the dog Gordon.”
Ed. note: I am in love! Look at him!
“Despite taking Gordon directly to the vet from the shelter and having a foster home arranged, he ended up coming home with us a few days later. He was Corgi #2, Dog #3 and he’s three years old.”
“Gordon is the most loyal dog I’ve been around. He rarely leaves my side except to chase the Kong which he will do until he drops. We are currently looking for a Kong Anonymous meeting nearby.”
Like they could resist this? As if!
Alice’s “croppie flop”.
“Alice is the head of the pack — good woman she is! She “owns” the road we live on; our yard, the deck and whatever else she believes she should rule over. She loves to lay on our deck so she can overlook the yard AND see the road. It’s her heaven.”
I may look like a pushover, but just ask Alice!
“Ramsey is the smallest but by no means the quietest. He’s the roughest player too! He likes to get a hold of Alice’s collar while she’s on her back and play “Spin the Alice!”
“I’ve now decided we can no longer foster in our household. When I co-founded Corgi Connection of Kansas, both Jan E. (my co-founder) and I said we couldn’t foster. Jan had three Corgis already, but has since added to her pack adopting one of our first rescues!”
Editor’s note: I first learned about Wally, Dylan, Gordon, Alice and Ramsey in early March.
Since then, Jeanette has taken in and cared for other dogs:
“Right now I’m fostering a young male, Joel, who had recovered from heartworm treatment. He is such a character and so interested in learning what’s going on with the other dogs. It’s all so new to him.”
“The latest news is MORE dogs … I was asked by the state of Kansas if I would take seven dogs from a breeder who wanted to give them up, two of which are/were pregnant! I agreed and am now trying to find rescues or adoptions for five of them. One of the females just had three pups and we weren’t expecting them until the end of July.”
“The things I get myself into …”
