Janet and Cowboy police a route that takes about five hours to complete. The work of cowboys is to worry about the geese and annoy them until they give up and go elsewhere. Cowboys never harm geese – it is managing geese humanely. Janet’s job is to get cowboy to where he needs to be. Cowboys usually work five days a week – the key to controlling geese is constant harassment. Cowboy is now part-retired, and he and Janet only work every weekend. Other dogs include routes during the working week and on weekends instead.
The tangerine goose is the American By Birth Cowboy By Choice Us Flag Shirt best job Janet has ever had, and she got it thanks to her dog breeding experience for the Cleveland APL. About 10 years ago, Janet decided to volunteer at the APL and registered on the Cleveland APL website. She began to do simple things like walking her dog and combing, but because of her nurturing background, Janet soon realized she was nurturing desperate cases – like seriously ill dogs, and adorable kittens that needed to be bottle-fed every three hours.
Janet loved the job and her hound, Moxie, also helped. Janet remembers forever one day, bringing home a sick kitten, filthy eyes and nose. She left the kitten alone with Moxie for a few minutes and Moxie licked all over the American By Birth Cowboy By Choice Us Flag Shirt cat like a mother cat, cleaning it up. The kitten thrives and is quickly adopted when old enough.
Cowboy came to live with Janet’s family in December 2019. Unsure how she would respond to foster homes, especially adorable kittens, Janet temporarily stopped fostering. Cowboy is a very gentle dog and Janet hopes to be able to start nurturing again as the kitten season heats up this spring. Cowboy knows how important it is to rescue animals. Cowboy is a rescue dog.
