Frank J. Casler and Susan E. (Zellweger) Casler

This marriage was made in heaven, but so was lightening and thunder!



He is called Corky because right from the start he was a Corker! 


Hi there!  I'm Corky...












Hello! I'm Nemo...

We adopted Nemo from the Ayers Memorial Shelter a little over a year ago. He is a Maremma Sheepdog.  He and Corky really get along well and when they get roughing it in the house it's crazy.  Nemo is great around us but he is not socialized and is spooked easily when something is different than normal.  He is protective of his space and his peeps.  He is always facing out from us to protect us.  Nemo is a project for us and we think he was abused as a youngster.  He is between 1 and two years old.  When he is comfortable and feels safe he is very lovable.  He does get upset easily though.  Over time we hope he will get better and more social. 




 

 

 

  
    

 

 





 

   

Well Corky, what say you and I have
some fun!

 
                                  

     And I am Otis!  Otis T. Spunkenmier III, to you...you hear? 
 
        

     What say I chew on this dogs tail 
     and see what happens...  oops!











Ok... until we have another addition... thats the 3 house pets!

Here lies Corky's mom (Lexy), a Golden Retriever and one of those 10 little pups is the Corker.  You can see half of them are black like dad and the other half are golden like mom.
 Here's Corky at just 4 weeks old before we brought him home.  Cute little boy right?  Well he bit my ear and drew blood.  Because of that he should have been named Lobie (ear lobe) but that just did not meet approval.
Here he is again at 8 weeks of age.  What a handsome young man.  Frisky too! Corky at 8 wks
Corky at 5 monthsLook at Corky now at 5 months.  Oh boy, I have never seen an animal grow so fast! 
Well, that brings us to the present and he is now 2 1/2 years old.  He still has a little of that childish behavior but he is growing up.  He is about 100 lbs. and is like a freight train going through our home.  He is definately part of our family and does not venture too far away as he knows who feeds him.  If you want to get an idea what it's like owning a dog like this you should read the book, "Marley and Me" or see the movie.
This is Corky's daddy.  He is looking goofy!  The apple does not fall far from the tree.
Ok- so how did it happen?  Well, Sherman was tied on a line in his owner's back yard minding his own business.  (Sherman had just passed his first birthday.) Along came Lexy, the neighbor's golden retriever and she was in heat.  Oh yes... So... even while tied on a short line Sherman had to do what a man(dog) had to do when a harlet comes calling.  Thus 10 little pups were conceived.  And now you know... the rest of the story...
