The Story of How I Rescued Jen

One thing I am often asked is how Jen and I came to be together.


So ya wanna know how I found Jen?

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.

Has it really been 8 years?

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.

  2. 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.

  3. That’s a great story glad you found each 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

  4. 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!!! πŸ™‚

  5. 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.

  6. Love this story, Rumpy! Thanks for sharing. Wow – eight years! Time really does fly when you are having fun, doesn’t it? Congrats to you and mom! Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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


  11. 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!

  12. 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!

    Dogs rule.
    Cats drool.

  13. 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.

  14. 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. πŸ™‚
