The Lost Boys Find Col. Potter!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Tootles, a friendly 8 year old Black Brindle Male

Curly, a charming 8 year old Wheaten Male

Nibs, a happy 8 year old Black Brindle Male

Well they’re not really lost (and never were), but Tootles, Curly, and Nibs did find their way to Col. Potter’s for “Everland” and we are happy to welcome them all!

Their names come from characters in Peter Pan’s Lost Boys, a play written by J.M. Barrie.  In the play, the very young boys fall out of their prams when the nurse is not looking and were lost by their nannies.  Having gone unclaimed for seven days, they were whisked off to Neverland where they live with Peter Pan.

CP's Lost Boys didn't fall out of anybody's pram, but they did live in a land where they never got enough love and attention, having to share their human, space, and attention with a large group of other dogs.  They were loved and cared for, but living in a land with so many other dogs brought out the Terrier in them, and their pack mentality took over, and they, quite naturally, tried to be ultimate rulers of their land.  With our pixie shoes and hats on, CP swung into action to bring these boys safely to CP's for"Everland".

These 3 sweet boys are brothers and just celebrated their 8th birthday.  They each have their own personalities and quirks and are looking forward to flying off in search of their next adventure and new life on their own.

Please Welcome Tootles, Curly, and Nibs!
