Loving friend and companion of Dr. Elizabeth Appleman, Gertrude was adopted at age 3 from the Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh and spent her formative years in NYC. She enjoyed shopping, fine dining, strolling in Central Park, and relaxing in her apartment on the upper east side. Gertrude almost made it to her 18 and 1/2 birthday in 2011, and would like to go on record as one of the oldest Corgis in history. Remembrances by Mickey & Peter Bickford, January 2011.
