We added to our family first with Cerro, on Oct 19,2001
Cerro, named after Cerro Gordo ghost town, was 11 weeks old when we adopted her.
Then with Beaudry on June 11, 2002
Beaudry, named after Victor Beaudry from Cerro Gordo history, was 10 weeks old when we adopted her.
And then with Keeler, rescued from living behind a restaurant in the snow, February 2005, at about the age of 6 months.
Keeler was named after the town of Keeler - which supplied goods to Cerro Gordo in the heyday. He's a polydactyl - he's got 6 toes on each paw.
And again with Custer on April 20, 2008.
Custer is a German Sheppard/Akita/Chow mix, he was 2 years old when we adopted him from the Big Pine Animal Shelter. He was named after Custer, Idaho - one of our favorite ghost towns.
