DOGS IN LOVE! Photos BY Kim Wolf
SARGE WOLF-STRINGER & MARY TODD LINCOLN From the moment Sarge and Mary Todd Lincoln met in 2009, this odd couple has rarely been apart. Sarge is a 16-year-old Elderbull who was rescued at age 14 from an alleged dog fighting operation in Philadelphia, and Mary Todd Lincoln is a 9-year-old Pug who was rescued at age 7 from a puppy mill in central Pennsylvania. They were both adopted from the Pennsylvania SPCA, just three months apart by their parents, Kim Wolf and Thaddeus Stringer. Mary Todd was instantly drawn to Sarge’s ears, and she cleans them every night before going to bed, and Sarge just loves the attention his younger girlfriend bestows upon him. Although they now live in New York, these two lovebirds have traveled together with their family from Maine to Florida. Their most memorable trip was to Fort Lauderdale, where they swam together in the Atlantic Ocean. But their most rewarding activity (for their parents, at least) is when they visit schools together to teach kids about responsible pet ownership. Sarge and Mary Todd Lincoln are a great example of two individuals who are perfect for each other despite their differences in size, age, and appearance.

Sadly, Sarge Wolf-Stringer went to heaven as we were going to print on this issue and he will be deeply missed by all his fans. Sarge’s legacy still lives on through Facebook with his brother, Junior the Bobblehead, and of course, Mary Todd Lincoln.
