River aka Jerry Lee
|7/14/10: Hello Carol,
I have been meaning to send you a note for a while. River is doing fine. He is the guardian of the Ponderosa. In the past month alone he has saved me from an armadillo that almost walked into the dog pen behind me after dark and he actually tree'd a groundhog a few days later. I didn't know groundhogs could climb trees. He is working on helping catch another armadillo in the yard. He is still a big fan of playing with rocks. He is by my side always when I am outside. If I end up sneaking off without him and I scream, (you know, spiders and snakes) He comes running. He gets to upset when I go for a horseback ride, so he has to stay behind.
He is such a great dog, I can't imagine how he ended up homeless.
Anyway, I now refer to him as my guardian as he always looks out for me.
I enclosed a couple of photos, we had a great time last winter in all the snow! I hope you enjoy them.
Sincerely, Carla B.
|Update from "River" 6/26/08: Hi Carol! I hope this
finds you well. I have been thinking a lot about emailing you, so you
would know how I was doing with my new family. My Mom told me I needed to
get in touch with you so you would know that I was doing quite well in my
I have a lot of freedom to play outside with my new friend Chena. My new Mom lets me come in the house just as soon as I tell here there's a thunderstorm coming, She feeds me in the house and I get my Frontline every month. I have a feeling I'm going to get a bath pretty soon cuz my Mom says I smell bad. I have gotten some new toys. Mom got me a new Kong ball and the first time she through it, no one ever saw it again. it just bounced and bounced and ........... So I got a new one that's orange and it has horns on it and I still have it so far.
I'll have Mom help me to send some pictures of me for you to see.
Tell everyone back there Hello for me.
I miss you, Love River
4/05/08: Jerry Lee has an enthusiastic personality.
He hopped right into the car and after surveying the landscape, he laid
down and put his head in my lap. He is happy to be in a yard to play
with other dogs. He is getting along fine with all of them. He
really likes people and attention also. He has obviously had a
lot of attention. He knows 'sit', 'stay', 'lay down', and loves to
fetch sticks and tennis balls. If there are none handy, he will
bring you a rock to throw for him! He has a lovely,
healthy coat and even disposition. He looks purebred, but his ears
are a bit smaller then the giant ears so many have. Actually it's
kind of nice to see ears that are not so pronounce for a change. He
is about 80 pounds and 25" at the shoulder, so not a real big boy.
More average. He was picked up by animal control and his time run
out as he set waiting to be claimed by his owner. No one came
forward so Ozarkdogs was called. Since he looked so much like Frank,
our GSD that we lost a year ago, we could not turn this boy down, even
though we are overflowing.
