Introducing Thornton!

Contributed by a CP Intakes Volunteer

We have a new gentleman that has joined Col. Potter. His name is Thornton. He's a 10 year old handsome, well actually very cute, wheaten guy with a happy disposition. He is an owner surrender due to no fault of his own. In the ideal world when a family gets a puppy, they go through all the stages of puppy, crazy cairn teen, confident adults and easy going mellow guy to wonderful seniors. The family all grows together and enjoys all that life has to offer. Sadly sometimes the human parents grow apart, sometimes the split becomes permanent. The family unit is broken apart. As hard as people may try to make the transition, now and then there are casualties. Little Thornton was the casualty. With the changes in his human family there was a need for Thornton to find his own new home.

 You see Thornton can't read so he couldn't scan the want ads for apartments. He asked around about apartments but then had another dilemma - how would he pay the rent? Thonton doesn't have a paying job. He also doesn't have a diploma so even if he did find a job, it wouldn't pay enough to maintain the lifestyle he was used to living! So what's a boy to do? Hmmm - of course! Call Col. Potter!! The call was made and Thornton quickly became a CP gentleman with the help of a compassionate volunteer. Thornton has been through his spa process and has recently been welcomed into the warmth of his foster home. He says THANK YOU - after all, he is a gentleman. Please welcome Thornton!
