Written by CP's VP of Intakes

All of us that volunteer and support Col. Potter have a personal story, a history. Some of us have lived what could be considered a privileged life, while others of us have had to fight and work hard for everything we've ever gotten. The same can be said for the Cairns that find their way to the CP family. The important thing about Col. Potter is it doesn't matter if you're a human or a Cairn, if you've come from privilege or hardship, we open our arms to all to become a part of the CP family.

This little girl has come from hardship, but that has all changed for her now. She is sleeping in a warm building on a soft blanket tonight and will enjoy probably her first soothing bath to get the dirt and filth off her body. She doesn't know it yet, but she has gone from hardship to privilege.

Anya is a red wheaten female, estimated at 4-5 years old. Her name comes from our Name a Cairn Program, donated by Bonnie W-C in memory of her mother who died too young, was a redhead, loved her kids, loved animals and always had a flock of people around her. It's nice to know CP's Anya has such a special Guardian Angel watching over her.

With the holidays right around the corner, the Name a Cairn Program is a wonderful gift idea for that hard to buy for person on your shopping list. You know, the one that has everything and needs or wants nothing. What a wonderful, unique and caring gift that truly gives the gift of life to a little Cairn like Anya.

Sleep tight tonight little Anya with wonderful dreams of what a happily ever after will be like ...
