Happy Mutt-ers Day

Starting late last summer we did “foster care” of sorts for a friend’s dog as she went through a divorce and wound up in an apartment that didn’t accept pets. He went home a few weeks ago.

Ever since then, The Missus felt an emptiness in the house. She missed having two dogs around. And that’s how we wound up with Gertie.


Gertie is a 7 month old cocker spaniel from the Beatrice Humane Society. She was very shy when we met her—so shy, in fact, that although other families had looked at her, she had been stuck in the shelter for weeks. We saw through that, however. After spending time with her it was clear that she would make a great family dog. She wanted to bond with a family, she just hadn’t had the opportunity.

Sure enough, it didn’t take her long to find comfort here at 625 Elm Street. She is still learning to trust us, of course. That’s entirely natural for any pup, but especially for one from a shelter.

We met most of the other adoptable dogs from the Beatrice Humane Society. They were all very lovable. I really enjoyed meeting and playing with Bre, but she had way too much energy for our home. With three boys in the house we don’t need any more bounciness.

Looking for a pet but don’t want to drive down to Beatrice? Check out Capital Humane Society here in town, of course. Or check out Hearts United for Animals down toward Auburn.

Is it bad that I totally get the mushroom mushroom response?
