Col. Potter says NEVER FORGET!

Written by CP's VP of Intakes

This past weekend ceremonies were held all over the US in remembrance of the events of 10 years ago. It is a day very few of us will ever forget. I think we all remember where we were, what we were doing and who we were with when we heard the unthinkable news. Almost 3000 innocent people lost their lives that terrible day. The effects continue to affect the family and friends of those people today.

Other tragedies also happen on a daily basis, for no apparent reason, and without anything that seems like justice. It doesn't matter if they are old or young, or how much they are loved and cared for. The loss can seem almost unbearable to those that are left behind. Whether it is a human or canine member of your family or friends, please NEVER FORGET them. Hold them close in your heart forever and let their memories carry them into eternity with you.

This past weekend, two little girls made their way to Col. Potter from some rough conditions. They were covered in fleas and matts filled with more fleas, dirt and feces.

Eternity: wheaten, born 10/30/07

Forever: wheaten, born 8/12/09

These names have a personal meaning for me this weekend. I hope you all will NEVER FORGET!
