Arrival Story: Cassie came to us as a foster dog for Col Potter Cairn Rescue Network as she needed a home as an only dog. She slipped her harness the second day after coming to our home and was missing for 30 hours. We were heartbroken. She was close enough to see occasionally but not close enough to catch. Finally hunger and several kinds of stinky food that dogs love lured her to a safe trap where we finally could bring her to warmth and safety.
Bio: Cassie was rescued from a puppy mill by Col Potter and fostered and placed in a forever home that didn't work out, she and the resident Cairn didn't get along. She came to us as a foster and she and we fell in love almost immediately! Within a week we applied to adopt her and she is ours now.
The mom and me really appreciate all the happy Gotcha Day good wishes and all the condogulations on me being a diary of the day! Y'all are sooooooo sweet to remember me!!
I had a good Gotcha Day, long walkie wiff de dad on a day before it good so dog-gone cold, rainy, and windy, and me, Hunter, and Defi all got Frosty Paws.
This morning the mom sure was in a hurry for Hunter and me to do our business, something about it being cold, windy, rainy....don't know what her problem was, it was only 38 degrees with 20-25 mph north wind, and raining.....perfect walking, sniffing, taking your time outside kinda weather.
Wowzers, it's been 8 whole years since the hoomans met Miss Judy with Col. Potter halfway between Dallas and Houston to pick me up to foster me! I was a scared former puppy mill momma who'd been rescued and adopted out and returned to CP because I "didn't get along with the first dog" in that adoptive home. I fell in love with the hooman male person, and that surprised Miss Judy because she'd been told I HATED the hooman male in the first home. But, I was still scared and escaped my harness and went on the run for 30 hours the very next day. Now I know I had no need to be scared enough to run away and hide. My hoomans know their lives would not be as happy or complete without me in them, too.
Mom says we'll get some Frosty Paws later on to celebrate!!
We are all sooooo happy here, cause she's been pretty miserable for the past year with her Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde boss! The only thing is....she's gonna come home smelling like other DOGS every day. She's gonna be scheduler/biller/customer liason person at a pet sitting/pet walking company. Her office will be at owners home and they have a beautiful dobie and a Papillion there. She will get to play with them during the day! She will be working only M-F from 8-5 instead of weird late night hours and on Saturdays now. She agreed to come in to old job for several weeks to help train the person who will replace her....but that agreement will last only as long as Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde is nice to her!
Happy Thanksgiving everypup! We do have a lot to be thankful for in our household this year.
