Happy Birthday Scarlett!

Dear Col. Potter Family,

“On February 17th, 2007, Col. Potter rescued Scarlett from a MO puppy mill. The auction was scheduled to start at 10:00 AM in two tents due to the number of dogs. Due to cold weather and wind the auction didn’t even start until almost 2:30 PM! Insults to injury Cairns were third from the last! Our person got 9 of the 13 available Cairns; 7 females all 2000 and older and the 2 males - a 03 and a 99. He spent every penny of our budget which means these kids were going for pretty high prices considering their age.”

Thank you Col. Potter for your diligence and dedication. Because of this brave rescue, we have had the pleasure of Scarlett’s company for these last 31 months, through thick and thin, in sickness and health, good times and bad, and now we have the honor of watching her turn 11 years old. We get to spend a 2nd birthday with her. How endearing is that?
Scarlett just gets better and better. Goes on and on and on. What a little trooper. We love her so. She had a play date at a friends tonight and now we will cuddle in bed together because she deserves this and so much more. What a gift an older dog is. Who knew? I wouldn't trade her for 10 of the cutest young dogs in this group.

Happy 11th Birthday Scarlet! Colleen K. the Yankee with a little Southern on the side
