Gladys (Doe #49), The Nosy Neighbor

 Gladys (Doe #49)

Gladys out for a stroll in Mt Storm Park with her friend “Thelma,” who hopefully will soon be sporting ear tags of her own!

Adopted and Named by: Sally Skillman

Named for: Gladys Kravitz, the nosey and rather high strung neighbor from the TV show “Bewitched.”

Sponsored by: Gladys is still looking for sponsors!  If you are interested, please let Gladys know

If you are out for a walk in Mt. Storm Park and have the strange feeling of being watched, it just might be Gladys surveilling you from behind a bush.  Gladys, age ~6, likes to keep close tabs on what her human neighbors are up to and is the first to notice and check out anything and anyone new in the neighborhood.  In fact, Gladys seems so well informed about our field operations (heading deep into the woods with her family and friends whenever our darters come to town) that we have to wonder if she spies our planning meetings!

When she isn’t looking over garden walls and keeping up with the latest neighborhood gossip, Gladys can be found in Mt. Storm Park and the woods between Lafayette Avenue and Rue de la Paix with her family, Doe #23 (age ~5.5), Doe #55 (age ~2.5), Doe #62, a/k/a “Louise” (age ~3.5), and the as-yet-untagged “Thelma.”

Spayed in our January 2017 field operations, Gladys weighed in at a svelte ~145 lbs.  To sponsor Gladys, just give her a shout!

We can all relate to Gladys’ awkward family portrait, can’t we?
