In the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, we saw an email come through from GSP Rescue of NJ about a young German Shorthaired Pointer (GSP) named Jäger who needed a foster immediately. Jäger was an owner-surrender because his family could no longer take care of him with his special needs. Unfortunately Jäger suffers from seizures due to Epilepsy. Another volunteer offered to take him in as a foster. Unfortunately, a few days after being in his foster home, Jäger had a major altercation with one of the resident dogs. The foster family wanted him transferred out of their home, as they were not equipped to do crate-and-rotate. Brian and I could not let a dog with epilepsy end up in a boarding facility with no monitoring at night. On August 2, 2020 Jäger was dropped off at our home and he began his adoption journey as our foster dog.
Although a couple of people showed interest in adopting Jäger, they were either out of state (GSP Rescue of NJ only adopts to New York and New Jersey), not willing to do crate-and-rotate, or were not experienced with Epilepsy.
He was very happy here, and we couldn’t deny our love for him. Four months later, on Christmas Day 2020, we officially adopted Jäger! We are very excited to see what adventures this pup will create for us! Welcome to the family, buddy!
Christmas during Covid 19… Jägermeister’s first and Margarita’s last
Margarita and I completed the Run Run Rudolph 5K on December 24, 2020 during Covid 19 with Margarita’s cousin James and her Aunt Casey.
This was the last 5k Margarita and I ever did together.
I am grateful for the countless memories and adventures Margarita led me on while we walked many miles together. Click HERE to see all the 5K’s Rita and I completed.
I will forever miss my 5k partner.💖
