R.O.A.R. Squad: Angie and her dogs, Snoopy and Rummer

I am very pleased to introduce you to our latest R.O.A.R. Squad member: Army Officer Angie Chamorro and her dogs Snoopy and Rummer from North Carolina!

Angie has a great blog with a very fetching design (killing myself laughing over here, you’ll get it when you see the name of her blog)- read more about this great family after the jump (make sure you scroll to the very bottom of the post to see all the photos)!

If you would like to be profiled in the R.O.A.R. Squad (Rescue Owners Are Rockin!) all the info you need to do so is HERE. A special shout out to fabulous folks in Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island– we need you!

Rockin’ Rescue Owner: Angie Chamorro

Gorgeous Pups: Snoopy (Cocker Spaniel, 13 yrs. old) and Rummer (Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, 9 yrs. old)

About Angie: Army Officer, single, love my dogs (Check out Angie’s blog, Fetch, as well as her other blogs on food and gardening).

Tausend Dank! I was stationed in Germany when I adopted Snoopy in 2002 from the Vet Clinic on base.  Snoopy was the first one I saw, and I fell in love immediately. I am Snoopy’s third owner, and he is stuck with me.  He has endured abused from his first owners that have resulted in a few medical issues but he has not let that deter his fun loving nature.

And a Thousand Times Beautiful: Snoopy can fall asleep in 2.2 seconds, and he falls asleep ANYWHERE.  Because he has facial paralysis his tongue sometimes sticks out and he won’t notice until I pull lightly on it.  He also snores like an old man. He is like Hoover (the vacuum); if food falls on the floor, he is there to pick it up.

Love at First Lick: I adopted Rummer in 2004 from the Augusta Regional SPCA.  Can you believe that Rummer’s previous owners tied her up to the train tracks and left her there to get hit by the train?  I did not go looking for Rummer (formerly known as Betty) when I visited the shelter, but when I went home her cute face kept coming to my mind. She was in an awful shape: malnourished, filthy, flea-infested, and so shy, that she would not even come to me when I called her. When the SPCA lady brought her out, she was so nervous that she would flinch when I tried to touch her.  I almost left without her but suddenly she jumped on my lap and licking my face. I was in love! 

Bad Boys, Bad Boys. Whatcha Gonna Do? Rummer has a fondness for Chinese food, as I found out when I first adopted her. She is a true Wheaten, and her Wheaten Greeting is something that not even the best training has managed to get rid of. Rummer has an aversion to cops.  She sees a cop and she starts growling with the funniest growl that goes up and down as if she was talking.  She does this only with cops.

Where: North Carolina

    What an adorable family! They all look so happy in that top photo.

    I love Wheaten Terriers, the idea of poor Rummer tied to the tracks makes me want to cry. I am so glad someone was able to save him.

    Yay for more members!

  2. Kari says:

    So I looked at the first pic and thought “The one with the tongue out must be Rummer” ha!


  3. They look so happy, even though it sounds like they had awful prior families. I can’t believe the railroad track story. Isn’t that what they used to do in those old movies?

  4. @Kristine- I find that so heartbreaking too. What is wrong with people? I don’t get it. So glad to see them all so happy now!

    @Kari- Rummer sure is a beauty (they both are :))

    @Two- I know, it’s crazy!

    Yea, more from North Carolina – my state 🙂 And I’m am sooo happy to have read this one. I will never, ever get used to some of these stories I hear. How human beings can be so cruel to animals will always be beyond my comprehension. Thank goodness these two beauties now have a wonderful, forever home with another angel that walks this earth – Angie. Big HUG!

  6. Hi everyone! I have not been blogging this past few weeks due to work, but so glad to be part of the R.O.A.R. Thank you for the kind words. Every morning when I wake up and thank God for everything, these two little creatures are the second thing on my list (after thanking God for being alive). My life has been so enriched by their presence that words cannot express. So, thank you for the feature. We ♥ you guys!
