Pets Corner September 2010

He may have been an unplanned birthday gift, but PJ is now just another member of the family.

Having previously owned spaniels, Kerrie, a staff member of Harbour Town’s QueensPark, hadn’t envisaged owning another dog after having to put down her last spaniel.

“My husband fought cancer for about four years and the dog seemed to take on all the same symptoms and I rang up Werribee hospital and they actually said that it was quite common,” she said.

Kerrie said that following the death of her husband five years ago they decided to put the dog down because it got so sick and was the fairest thing to do.

“After our last dog died we didn’t think we would ever have another dog, but my boys were only 14 and 15 and I wanted them to still be kids,” she said.

Kerrie was walking through a shopping centre four and a half years ago, looking for a present for her son’s birthday when she walked passed PJ. She couldn’t resist and hasn’t looked back since.

“He’s absolutely gorgeous. He’s very loving and smart, but also very stubborn and if he wants to go for a walk he’ll go out the back and pick up his lead and bring it inside to me.”

Kerrie’s partner brings PJ in to visit her at work sometimes.

“He will come in and brighten up everyone’s day. But sometimes I actually have to put a security tag around his collar to make sure he doesn’t walk out the door,” she said.

Watching the gorgeous Kerrie and beautiful PJ play together, it is obvious that PJ wasn’t just a present for her son!
