I'm pleased to hear that Gypsy has been rehomed. Ben is looking down and smiling.

Gypsy is up again for adoption. Drop me a private message if you are interested in adopting her.

It sounds like the funeral service was quite a celebration of the life of Ben Kramer and that many Doggie Doo Run Run people were there. I did hear from someone who was at Ben's service that Gypsy is still looking for a good home and hopefully someone who can get her to her normal routine of Doggie Doo Run Run and the Villages.

A little bump for Gypsy.

Oh no, I am sad to hear that Gypsy is now looking for a new home.
If I were full time in TV, I'd take her - she is a lovely quiet dog.

Yes. She is. I'll try to keep abreast of the news on Gypsy. A sweet pit bull mix which was/is too submissive to mix with the bigger dogs. She would always be near Ben Kramer in the small dog section at Doggie Doo Run Run often playing with the smaller pooches. She and Sport played once in a while. Beau has a little too much attitude for Gypsy.

I used to worry about Gypsy because I knew Ben was over 90. I wondered if she would have a safe home when he passed.
Gypsy is a very sweet, submissive dog. I hope someone adopts her.

No news yet but I will keep my eyes and ears open to what happens with Gypsy.

I'm worried about what will happen to Gypsy. Such a nice, quiet dog.
Please let us know anything you hear.

She may be going north but I will keep my eyes and ears open about this. There's a certain sometimes girlfriend of Ben who has a daughter with a large farm who might be interested in Gypsy. They already have a pack up there.


I think many DDRR regulars know which former girlfriend. This is just gossip right now., i.e third party information, or maybe even fourth or higher.

I hope so for Gypsy's sake. I'll be 'twisting' and 'twirling' with happiness if it comes to pass!

I assume you have heard that T's daughter may take Gypsy? That would be so great.
Please keep your ear to the ground and let us know what you hear.

I've been spending my time in Big Dogs so I don't hear the chatter in Little Dogs anymore.
We've been babysitting two dogs for a DDRR member who is in hospital.
We've been hearing his news from other friends who walk in Big Dogs.
We looked after the dogs for three days and they are now being boarded at DDRR.
It's a great community of friends who share a common bond - a love of dogs.

I see Biggins in the small dog section once in a while. Beau likes to go all over but there are a few bigger dogs which are a bit too rough on him so I stay in the small dog section whenever I see them over there or notice their owners' cars in the parking lot.

Funny that Gypsy as far as I know did not visit with the big dogs. T's dogs go all over the park like Beau. Big hearts in small bodies.

I only saw Ben and Gypsy in Small Dogs. I think Ben avoided Big Dogs.
Some of the large dogs are clumsy so it can be a bit much for elderly, fragile folks. Although T and G do just fine.
Ben used to sit on the same chair in Small Dogs most days. If I sat with him, we would talk. I miss him.
Gypsy was always quiet and never bothered the smaller dogs.
She seemed like a very good dog. I hope she finds a forever home soon.

True, T and G do very well back there.

Any word about the man with the two cockers? G? Beau never gets along with Sam as Sam wants to lick him and Beau does not appreciate the loving.

I missed DDRR yesterday due to errands required of me so I did not have a chance to gather any new information on Gypsy.

Please give us an update on Gypsy when you can.
The cocker's dad is still in hospital, but getting stronger every day. Yay.
The two cockers are being boarded at DDRR. They've stayed there before, so it's familiar to them.
