Written by CP's VP of Intakes

The definition of FREEDOM is: "release or rescue from being physically bound, or from being confined, enslaved, captured, or imprisoned."

Over the course of history, people have fought for freedom many times and for many reasons. The struggle for FREEDOM continues today in many corners of the world and within our own country. The road traveled to reach FREEDOM is never smooth or easy.

One thing that is quite certain and has not changed since the beginning of time; change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. So we must straighten our backs and work for FREEDOM.

Saturday, five little Cairns traveled the Freedom Road with their journey bringing them to the ultimate destination - the Col. Potter family. Their struggles are now over, the bumpy, hard road they have been traveling has been paved in comfort and love and has been named Freedom Road:

Avenue: Female, 3 years old, dark brindle

Boulevard: Female, 2 years old, wheaten

Turnpike: Male, 7 months old, wheaten

Highway: Female, 6 months old, grey brindle

Expressway: Female, 6 months old, cream

Freedom Road is only possible with us all working together and your monetary contributions to keep the road open and free of blockage. Please help to keep this important roadway open for the Cairns that still need to travel it! My thanks to Monika R. for helping Freedom Road on their first trip in FREEDOM. Please help me welcome FREEDOM ROAD!

What a sweet group of cairns! Highway reminds us very much of our dear sweet cairn who would have been 13 in May. Just recently had no other choice, but to put her to sleep due to an enlarged sleen and liver. We miss her dearly!
