Written by CP's VP of Intakes

This has been a challenging week with the last two groups - Famous Lovers and Working Class! Less than a week after Aphrodite was pulled from the Medina shelter, she whelped six beautiful, healthy puppies only three days after arriving in her foster home!

Then the Working Class arrived. They appeared to be in good physical health and had been well cared for. However, Imp had an unknown medical issue. Imp tested heartworm positive. Luckily, she is in the early stages of this hideous disease, but she will still undergo heartworm treatment in her foster home. This process is dangerous to Imp and expensive to Col. Potter, but necessary to give Imp the happily ever after we all want for her.

But, the surprises were not quite done yet. Yesterday Roxanne from the Famous Lovers was taken in for her spay. We had been told by the shelter vet that she had recently whelped puppies. Well, puppies was definitely a word the vet used when he called me yesterday, but not in the past tense! Roxanne is very pregnant with at least four puppies and due to whelp in the next 10-14 days!!

Col. Potter needs your support more than ever with the medical expenses for these furkids and the ones not yet born!! Please help Col. Potter to help these babies by donating to Col. Potter through the Name a Cairn Program, being a grandparent to these furkids, participating in our Ebay auctions, Pound Puppy Quilt Raffle, or just making a donation to CP ... Aphrodite, Roxanne and Imp, along with all the others send you a BIG AROOOOOO!

You can also donate by using the Chip In link at the top of this page. Thanks for your contiuing support!
