Cornbread is one of many of Jennifer Langdon’s fur babies. We sat down for a quick chat to learn about the day in the life of Cornbread.
EB: So Cornbread, how did you get your name?
Cornbread: Well you know, everybody loves Cornbread so why not!
EB: What do you like to do in your spare time?
Cornbread: When I was younger, my mom (by the way she is the greatest mom in the world) would take me out on Friday nights for a car cruise. We would walk around looking at old cars and hangout with a pretty big group of her friends. I’d find a chair (yep, I sit on chairs- none of sitting on that hard ground stuff for me) and a couple of her friends would always pick me up a hamburger or two from Whataburger. Man those are great burgers! Now that I have gotten older I like to sleep. When I am not sleeping I like to nap – oh and cuddling with mom is the best feeling in the world! I still occasionally chase a squirrel or two, and I like to bring mom the occasional bird to show her how much I love her.
EB: So would you say hamburgers are your favorite food?
Cornbread: They rank up there, but I think watermelon is my absolute favorite. When mom cuts up a watermelon I stand by her hoping she will give me a few juicy bites. But you know, almost any human food is great, although she doesn’t let me have very much of it. Man if I had thumbs, I would be in the refrigerator helping myself to everything and anything. But she takes good care of me and cooks hamburger meat for all of my meals.
EB: That sounds like one special mom you have.
Cornbread: She is awesome! She took in all of my siblings and I. While I didn’t care for sharing the attention, it was great that she gave all of us homes. You see, we came from some not so good places but she has given us a wonderful safe and loving home. She also makes sure we have good food to eat. (Sigh)… she does travel a lot for work, but she has always had someone stay with us and take care of us. I wish she didn’t have to travel but she calls it “making the dog food money”
EB: So how many siblings do you have?
Cornbread: I have 4 siblings. 3 brothers and one sister. Over the years she has rescued more dogs than I can remember but she kept us lucky five.
EB: What are some things you like to do for relaxation?
Cornbread: I am a pretty mellow dog so I like to sleep. Sometimes mom gives me a doggie massage especially when a thunderstorm is approaching
EB: So you don’t like thunderstorms?
Cornbread: No, I really dislike them. I used to be really afraid but mom has assured me that I am fine as long as I stay inside. When she is home she will lay with me, pet me and assure me that we will be ok. When they get really bad she has a special shirt she puts on me that makes me feel much better.
EB: What kind of shirt?
Cornbread: She calls it a Thundershirt. All I know is that it works.
EB: If you could spread a message to the world what would it be?
Cornbread: I would let everyone know that animals do have emotions and feel love, we also feel pain and hate people that are mean to us. I would encourage everyone to rescue a stray or two!
