Return of Rumbo

Rumbo was named after a famous racehorse, and was one of the family dogs. His tail wasn't bobbed for fashion. He lost it when he whacked it against something and it broke, They had to cut it off. He was really Jennifer's dog. He came in a long line of family dogs, including Rex, Pal, and Jester. When we lived on 25th Ave NE, dogs eventually went out into the front street and got squished by cars. Pal and Rumbo both lasted a long time, so they represent our fondest dog memories of days gone by.

  1. Interesting the parts we remember...I think Rumbo broke his tail on the leg of the hurt so he kept chewing at it. For a long time. It never healed so eventually the vet bobbed it.
    The dog Jester bit me in the face right on my upper lip. We were sitting under the dining room table on 25th when it happened. I still have a half inch long scar from that fun day.
    Those early dogs roamed around because who ever heard about spay and neuter your pets in those days.
