One thing I am often asked is how Jen and I came to be together.
I was 9 months old. I was running down the road, minding my own business, and smelling of the dead thing I’d just rolled in. Life was good.
Suddenly, this car stopped nearby and called to me. The woman asked me who I was and where I lived. I should have been scared, but I wasn’t. She told me it was dangerous out here, and I should get in her car with her. So I did.
We rode around and she asked people if they knew where i lived. Nobody did. The woman then took me to her house and I hung out in her back yard.
The woman kept looking for my home, but I could have told her it was a waste of time. I’d found my home with her.
Eventually I got tired of living in the yard, and I told her I wanted to live inside with the other dogs. And I did.
Hard to believe that was 8 years ago….. and that I’ve put up with her as long as I have.

What a good job you rescued Jen! Who knows where she might have ended up. Hope you had a fabulous birthday Rumpy – lots of love from Jazz, Daisy, Milly, Poppy and Coco and of course my two current foster kits: Rosie and Violet.
Do you always get in cars with strangers? Normally I would not recommend that but it looks like you made the right choice that time.
That’s a wonderful story, Rumpy. I think it was something like kharma that you and your Jen found each other.
You deserve a medal pal! It’s brilliant that you rescued her!
Jen is so lucky you found her!
You have the sweetest face ever, Rumpydog.
That’s a great story Rumpy..so glad you found each other..it is a dangerous world out there! I have given a lift to many souls over the years and all happily reunited eventually with their people…no pup should be out and about by themselves..hugs Fozziemum xx

Lovely story. It almost made me cry.
Getting into that car was a very wise decision!!!
What a lovely and touching story this is!!!!! Athough I’ve heard it before, I still almost cry when I listen to this beautiful story. If you hadn’t rescued Jen, we hadn’t have been able to meet you here, so we so glad you and Jen rescued each other!!! 🙂
You were wearing eau de roadkill. How could she not fall in love!
It was kind of you to rescue her, Rumpy!

A dog of adventure and good sense – wonderful combination. Jen is lucky to have you looking after her
What a sweet story! I’m glad you found Jen there on the road when you did!
Oh Rumpy, it was so good of you to rescue your Mama from wandering the streets in her car! Woooooowooooooooo!
Hooray for your momma. SO nice of her to rescue you from the streets. <3333
A wonderful story and it shows you were both very smart. How long did it take Jen to give you a bath? Rumpy, we all know that dogs know exactly the right person for them to adopt. You certainly did.
I love your line about putting up with Jen for 8 years! What a patient dog you are, Rumpy.
Lucky Jen to have found you!
What a great story! I glad you found Jen. Happy Gotcha Day.

Well Rumpster you certainly have a way with words! I bet Jenn is glad you found her!

RUMPY that is a MARVELOUS story of how you rescued the lady and then just STAYED WITH HER.
WHAT A FABULOUS Gotcha Story it is!! 8 years in the making and NO REGRETS… GRRRRREAT. BRAVO
Rumpy, be good to Jen – but don’t let her get away with any mischief. I’m always having to get after my person for trying to pull mischief on me.
She’s such a lucky girl, that you rescued her. But I think it wasn’t bad for you either to meet her. Have a happy Gotcha Day!
Bless your furry white paws & those soulful brown eyes & every bit of you in between!!! You are the sweetest poochie for rescuing Jen & giving her the poochie love & guidance she truly needed!
We love you Rumpy!!! (Jen he must keep you on your toes!!)
Love Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue xoxo

I LOVE THIS STORY,YOU WERE BOTH.AT THE RIGHT PLACE,RIGHT TIME.TO FIND EACH OTHER.IT WAS MENT TO BE.*WIPES TEARS OF JOY*I LOVE HAPPY ENDING LIKE THIS.XX
Happy Gotcha Day, Rumpy!
Oh, Rumpy, what a smart pup you were! Jen is very lucky that you have found her. Do you have pics from that old times?
It was so kind and brave of Jen to invite you into her car when you had just enjoyed being a “Primal Pup.” Stinky dead things are really quite grand though, yes? Especially to rowdy puppies out for a romp. It was very smart of you to adopt her like that and to get some doggie and kitty pals in the bargain. And we’re so glad we found you on the Interwebz! Love & loud purring from all of us!
LOL what a great story, but would of loved to know how you got on the streets in the first place Rumpy xxx
We may never know!
I always think that of my Archie especially as we know he was around 3/4 years old before he found us x
Rumpy, Jen is NOTHING without you. It’s a good job you rescued her! 🙂
She needs me!
Oh that’s a cute story, what a kind lady! And you put up with her *snort*
perfect match I would say Rumpy,xx Speedy
You did a very good deed, Rumpy. Us people really do need saving. 🙂
So nice of you to rescue Jen that way. 🙂
I melt into a puddle of goo when you turn on your big, brown-eyed charm. 🙂
Awwww….. you are too kind!
I love dogs 🙂 explains everything 🙂
Rumpy, I like that story. I was wondering- how many bones do you have to pay to your owner? Do they take a stipend for editing and printing your blog? If you are typing this out yourself, my apologies and bravo!
She pays ME! I mean, really, people come to this blog because I’m CUTE! She gets the honor of helping make lots of people very happy! woo woo woo!
We love dogs Rosie and I. Rosie got tears out all right reading Rumpy’s story. Thanks for the like on our blog.
Awwwwwwwww this is so sweet! 🙂
Thank you for taking action and taking this beautiful furbaby in. You have a good heart and people like you are much need it in this world.
Hi Jen! Sorry for the delay in saying thank you for visiting my blog. I love your story about gorgeous Rumpy. You are both very lucky to have found each other. 🙂
