Col. Potter Makes A "Happy Ever After" Connection
We want to thank you for doing a courtesy listing of Daisey in Colorado. She was at the Longmont Humane Society. We lost our Cairn, Tiki, in December from a tumor around her kidney and were ready to adopt. We have another Cairn named Kona who was quite lonely. We found your listing, called Longmont, but were sad to hear that she had kennel cough and could not yet be adopted. We called daily to check on her status and finally was able to see her on a Sunday. The minute we saw her, we knew she was the one for us. The family who gave her up had abused her. She was debarked and would crouch down and shake when you put your hands down to pet her or hold her. We were also told that she had been very sick with the kennel cough. As a result of the debarking, whenever she drinks water, she coughs a lot as it irritates her throat. We adopted her on Mother's Day in May. She now knows that hands are good things that give love. She seems very happy and really enjoys her walks in the park. She also enjoys having a playmate and Kona is equally happy. She plays ball by hitting it with her nose and wants you to hit it back. She is deathly afraid of thunder and lightning, but we are working on that. She used to run and hide under a bed, shaking a lot. But now she runs to me so I can pick her up and hold her until it is over. We love her dearly. She is a wonderful addition to our family and we want to thank you again for making it all possible.
Col. Potter provides courtesy listings for Cairns in shelters and rescues all over the country. Because many of these dogs are safe and just need to find forever homes, we consider it our way of helping all Cairns get adopted. We appreciate Daisey's family thinking to send us this wonderful "different" Happy Ending story.
