OhBee fka CP BooBoo Blizzard a Canadian Forever!

Written by OB fka CP BooBoo Blizzard

OhBee fka CP BooBoo Blizzard aka OB

Hello, all my Col. Potter Friends!  Hello, Foster Mom!  You all remember me as CP BooBoo Blizzard, that handsome devil of a Foster who came in from the cold last January, but now I answer to “OhBee” or “OB” for short (…heeheehee!), and now I’m a Canadian!

Anyway, when I arrived at my Foster Home, I discovered that I had a lot of adjusting to do, living in a House and having brothers and sisters, but I put my mind into it (with a lot of help from Foster Mom!) and by March I was ready to move again to my Forever home – in Canada!

I have to admit, this new adjustment hasn’t been nearly as difficult, thanks to all of Foster Mom’s work, but also thanks to my new Family!  They are great!  My new Canadian lifestyle includes going to the beach, going kayaking, boating, paddle-boarding, swimming, and, of course, there is still lots of snow and ice up here!

I love to ride up front to navigate…

…but I’m also a good sternman!

My Mom thinks I’m “a funny little boy” and she is so happy that I get along so great with my new sisters.  I also love to sing!  …Well, maybe it’s more of a howl, but it’s full throated and music to Mom’s ears – most of the time!

Being a Canadian Cairn is great!

Anyway, Mom says to say “Thanks!” again to the excellent Volunteers at Col. Potter – and especially my Foster Mom, Christy C. – because I wouldn't have this great new Life - and my family wouldn’t have Me - if it wasn't for you all!!!

Manny fka CP Manassas after 3 Years in Forever!

Contributed by his Mom

Manny fka CP Manassas

I adopted Manny three years ago, in August, 2010, and he's the love of my life!  I didn't want to confuse him further, so I kept the nickname “Manny” for Col Potter's name which was “Manassas”.

Manny is the only dog I've had who LOVES his toys!  He shows this love by taking all toys out of his toy box and strategically placing them all over the house so one is always within reach.  Messy house; happy dog.  We even sleep with a menagerie of favorites that he enjoys stalking, torturing, and killing as a restful sleep appetizer.

Nice catch!

Well, I was out shopping and saw some Gund toys.  One, a little worm critter, looked about Manny size and it made a cute giggling noise.  It was the same price as doggie toys so home it came.  As soon as he heard the giggle noise, Manny was smitten... and determined to kill it! Best toy EVER!

I wonder if it will move on its own…
What goes up…
…must be caught!
So, there!
…and There!

He captured it, tossed it in the air like a Hacky Sack, played keep-away and tug of war!  If I captured it, he wouldn't take his eyes off it until he seized it once more.  He kept his eyes on the prize!  When the time was right, he pounced.  Then with a shark-like attack, he went for the kill!  Poor Wormy!  First he lost an eye.  Then I found wormy entrails around the house.  His giggle was but a memory...  "I am Manny! No critter escapes these mighty jaws!"  What a guy!

Mom?  Can we go shopping again???

Many Thanks to Foster Mom, Susan M. and Col. Potter for rescuing Manny!  He's a little hunk o' luv!
