Two cuties join CP!

Written by CP's VP of Intakes

This introduction comes with a rating of "C" for cute, Cute, CUTE!!

How many of you are familiar with the Stevie Wonder classic "Isn't She Lovely"? The opening words are:

"Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious"

Stevie is describing his newborn daughter and the love he has for her.

Many puppies born into this world don't have that show of love or affection and if there is a genetic or medical issue with them, they are cast away.

Such was the case with two little girls who found their way to the Col. Potter family today. Their parents had produced other puppies that developed Craniomandibular Osteopathy otherwise known as CMO or lion's jaw. These puppies were lucky enough to find their way to a local rescue who sought breed specific help for them and turned to Col. Potter. Currently, neither little girl is showing any real signs of CMO, but both are very young, only 3 months, and the symptoms generally appear between 3-8 months of age.

After taking just one look at their pictures, I think you will join me in a chorus of Stevie's song and agree aren't they lovely, aren't they wonderful, aren't they precious. I think you will also understand how I then came up with the names for these two little girls:



They will be visiting a vet shortly for xrays of their jaws to determine the degree of CMO they currently have and started on medications to keep them comfortable while they go through this period.

My VERY BIG THANKS to Marsha and Dennis T. for fostering both of these baby girls and to Dennis for making the long drive to pick them up today.

Isn't She Lovely indeed! Please help me welcome the Baby Dolls!
