Myers Finds a Few New Friends at Col. Potter!

Myers, a friendly 8 year old Rescued Cairn-Westie Mix

"And among ourselves, we get along perfectly well. Of course, there was the time when they told us a Cairn, but delivered a Westie, but that's all settled now. Now we live in simple peace and harmony and..."

(1st Rescuer)
"It was a Cairn!"

(2nd Rescuer)

"It was a Westie!"

Tradition, tradition... tradition!

Okay, genug! (enough)

What’s important is that we all give a big hearty Welcome to Myers, the new guy at the Col. Potter table.

CP’s Myers was picked up as a stray by animal control in a major left-coastal city, and he was placed in a high-kill shelter there, where they had no history on him at all.  So, until we saw him in person, no one was quite sure of his pedigree.  But we knew he needed rescue.  Well, as it turns out, Myers is rather Westie-ish with a splash of Cairn.  Hey, nobody’s perfect!  But this dude comes close enough. Myers is about 8-years-old and a strapping 21 lbs.  And according to his new vet, he’s very friendly and grateful for his second chance at a happy life with people who will love him and take care of him.

Myers’ rescue story is actually a very involved one, with lots of intrigue, rumors and false reports.  This darling Westie/Cairn remained on the “list” while we waited to hear confirmation that we could indeed go and fetch him and bring him home.  And at the eleventh hour, we got the go-ahead, and with the outstanding help of Charlene M. and Brenda F., we brought Myers home to our family.

All of our CP volunteers do wonderful, selfless work, and one of the few ways that Col. Potter can honor them is to name a dog after them.  And each time we do, we are honoring all of our good people as well as our namesake volunteer — because, as we know, it takes a village.

If you’d like to volunteer with us, just let us know.  We have many jobs for creative, dedicated people. Just click one of the links below and fill out the application!

And now, let’s please Welcome Myers to the Col. Potter clan, with open hearts and open arms!
