Sports Fathers Now Playing in CP!

Written by CP's VP of Intakes

My heart always skips a beat when I'm contacted about taking in a large group of cairns. It's sort of like being at a highly contested sporting event -- the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. You want so badly for your favorite team to win, but know that's not always going to happen. But, this game also went into overtime. We originally were expecting seven older puppies and adult males. Monday the owner of the breeding facility contacted me asking if we would want to take three 11 week old puppies as well.

Luckily for these kids, the Col. Potter team came through with flying colors and we have the thrill of victory to savor thanks to our wonderful foster homes who stepped up to foster these furkids at a time when we are extremely full. This one definitely took a team effort, not only for foster homes, but in getting them picked up during the week, then arranging transportation next week to get them closer to the Cairn Rescue Annual Party (CRAP) and foster homes and transporters.

With Father's Day only a week away, what better way to honor all father's than by remembering some of sports great father and child(ren) families? Let's give a Col. Potter round of applause for the newest members of our team:

Manning: Male, 4 years old, dark brindle

Griffey: Male, 4 years old, dark brindle

Earnhardt: M, 2 years old, black brindle

Dorsett: M, 2 years old, dark brindle

Howe: M, 7 months old, dark red brindle

Ripken: M, 7 months old, dark red brindle

Norton: M, 7 months old, black brindle

Ali: Female, 11 weeks old, wheaten

Petty: Male, 11 weeks old, wheaten

Weber: M, 11 weeks old, wheaten

My favorite team is Col. Potter. These TEN Sports Fathers have already won by making their way to CP. Now they are set to join their foster families and learn the rules of games and...freedom!
