What will your pups be doing to celebrate tonight?

Off the Leash

Ringing out 2012 with an Armload of Sweet Toffee!



Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Toffee, a sweet 5 year old Wheaten boy

We received an email from one of our volunteers about a stray female cairn at her local shelter that needed to be rescued.  We got approval and our volunteer pulled her and delivered her to our vet.

Once at the vet, we found out the little girl is actually a little boy – no one at the shelter looked very closely and the long coat hid the obvious signs!

Toffee is estimated to be 5 years old and weighs 15 lbs.   So far all we know about him is that he seems like a happy boy – lots of tail wagging when greeting people!  He’s currently at the vet for his spa treatment and will be heading to his foster home this coming weekend.

Welcome little boy!

Introducing the Fetching Miss Violet Talullah!



Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

 Violet Talullah, a fetching 6 year old Wheaten girl

CP has a wonderful way to honor a loved one!!   "Name a Rescue Cairn" provides a thoughtful name to a rescued Cairn and contributes to future rescues!   CP's newest addition is a beautiful 6 year old Wheaten girl, named in memory of  Susan D's sweet Talullah who crossed Rainbow Bridge earlier this year.  Thank you Stacie S. for your generous contribution!  

Violet Talullah is one very lucky Cairn girl!  She wandered into the home of a good Samaritan who searched for Violet Talullah's owner.  When an owner could not be located, this kind and generous person ensured that Violet Talullah's health was good and her vaccinations were brought up to date.  The next step was to ensure that Violet Talullah found a good home.  CP was happy to assist, and welcomed this happy girl into the family.  Violet Talullah enjoys people and dogs, and adores tennis balls!  She loves to play fetch and is known to trot all around with a tennis ball in her mouth.  

Please welcome this adorable girl!

All I Want for Christmas…



Contributed by CP Foster Niles

Niles here! I am both Handsome and Nice!

Dear Santa,

Niles here...  I wrote a nice letter of introduction to all the potential Homes out there, but given that it is nearly Christmas Eve, I thought that you might consider giving me a little helping hand?  I mean…  Maybe you can keep a sharp eye out for a perfect Forever Home that really needs a swell guy like me?

Perhaps my painting would look Perfect on Your wall?

Perhaps, as you are popping up and down all those chimneys, you might notice a nice home that has a vacant spot on the sofa?  Don’t I look good here on Foster Mom’s sofa?   (She gave me permission to be up here, by the way!)

Maybe my new Home will like me in my spiffy bow tie?

…or maybe in my Patriotic look?

What about my “Party Dog” look???

O.K., the spiffy look?  With my fine, chiseled profile?

Maybe you’ll spot a home with the need for a great companion?  …A smile that needs a good reason to be made?
 
I’m sure you already know what a Good boy I have been, but, in case it slipped your mind - with all the Christmas Lists you have to remember - I am a somewhat mature young man, well beyond all that silly puppy stuff, but still youthful and spry, ready to run around the yard, or the house, playing with my fun-loving Foster sister, or hunting prey. 

I love to play and hunt in the yard!

O.K.!  I’ve finished my patrol and the perimeter is secure!

I do all of my business where business is intended to be done, always, and I never, ever chew on anything that hasn’t been approved by my Foster Mom.  I am very well mannered and well dressed, at least my Foster Mom tells me so - even when she accidentally puts my bow tie on upside-down!!

Say “outside” and I will be waiting at the door!

Anyway, Santa, Sir, please, can you take a minute or so to look into someone’s heart and find a spot that is just perfect for me?  Big or small, I can fill that spot with so much love and respect, I would surely be the Best Christmas gift any good home could ask for!

Sincerely,
CP Foster Niles in Sunny Florida
aka The Most Debonair Cairn on the Panhandle!
aka Your Sofa Buddy and Friend (I’ll be guarding your cookies and milk!)
