Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would ever become the caretakers for a pug.
Her journey to our home was a long and winding one. Born in Colorado, moved to Rhode Island then relocated to Pennsylvania she was an adversarial pup. Refusing to become part of someone’s harem, she did not fit into another’s dream of breeding. Fast forward to the pug rescue and Gizmo came home to us.
Her pet parent was an English major so Gizmo became Gertrude Stein and she settled into her new pack.
When her human mom relocated to New Mexico Gertie was part of a trio. We all agreed she could not be separated.
But time continues. Julie passed,
Maddie lost her mind and Gertie became blind.
Now we play musical dogs as Maddie has decided she wants to be the only living dog in the house.
So Gertie stays close. At any given moment we know where she is. (And so does Maddie!) Be careful what you sign up for!
