Sadly, Gerry's former owners did NOT give her heartworm preventative. In an area where heartworm is extremely prevalent, it was just a matter of time...and unfortunately Gerry succumbed. She is currently being treated and is doing well.The Best News of all is that Gerry has JUST been adopted! When she's completed her heartworm treatment, at the end of October, she will be going to her new home in which she'll have two great new moms, as well as a nice corgi brother to play with! We're absolutely thrilled for her. She's definitely paid her dues and now it is time for her to have the nice life she so deserves!
Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail
"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Gerry Berry Gets a New Name! (And a New Home!)
Miss Gerry Berry has been having a great time in foster care. The prevailing Pembroke Princess, with the Cast Away Boyz as her "subjects," Gerry has shown herself to be a lovely girl. She's losing weight nicely on her new diet too!
Gerry Berry is a really pretty girl. This photo was taken when she first arrived. We will have some new ones soon, showing how much nicer she's looking without all that excess weight.
And from now on, we will need to start calling Gerry by the name her new family intends to give her: Millie. See below for the inspiration!
