Pets of the Issue – Ruger and Bella

Submitted by Shane and Trudy Weickum


Ruger and Bella are four-month-old brother and sister German shorthaired pointers that came into the Weickums’ lives after a tragic accident took the life of their beloved four-year-old pointer Brandy.
“These siblings are two peas in a pod and love to run, play and swim,” Trudy tells Beachcomber. The four-legged siblings also enjoy camping, the outdoors and “annoying their sister Abby, a seven-and-a-half-year-old English bulldog.”
