Meet Baker, Baker was adopted by Sarah Rutledge Gorman who is the Managing Editor, special projects group for MSLO. Sarah adopted Baker from the New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare Society in New Fairfield, CT. He is a 1-year-old mixed breed. We wonder if his name implies that he would be helpful in Martha's kitchen in Bedford. We also love that he shares one of our passions!
This is what Sarah had to tell us about Baker when we interviewed her:
"Baker comes from rural Tennessee, where he used to hunt squirrels (and, purportedly, dodge bullets when his owner shot at him). He rescued himself by continually running to the home of the president of the local humane society, who eventually took him in full time before shipping him to a shelter in Connecticut. My husband and I met Baker a week after he moved up north, and the minute he walked through the door I wanted to take him home. He's adjusted beautifully to city life—although he still tries to hunt squirrels in Van Cortlandt Park—and he loves to take naps with all four paws in the air."
