Third time's a charm!
We decided there was time for one more litter of Colorado Puppies this year!
On October 01, 2008 the Newport Animal Hospital was once again home to puppies from the Valley Humane League. These puppies, like the last litter, were also shepherd/husky/lab mixes. Since Halloween was right around the corner, our staff gave these pups "spooky" names: Meet "Lizzie", "Carrie", "Boo" and "Edward", and the loving families that gave them each a forever home.
Lizzie, a striking Aussie/Lab mix, was named after Fall River's most famous axe murder, Lizzie Borden. Fortunately, she is nothing like her namesake. An extremely sweet and playful puppy, Lizzie was always up for a snuggle session. She was by far the staff favorite. Lizzie was the first of the puppies to leave us-- she went to a nice family on the island who will spoil her as much as we did. As a member of the family is an electrician by trade, they cleverly re-named her "Joules"!
Carrie, a Lab/Shepherd mix, was the smallest of the four. She didn't let her size get in the way, though; Carrie could always hold her own at playtime! She was a very rambunctious and playful puppy, and could often be found wrestling with one of her siblings. Carrie would very often choose play over sleep! Now "Bella", she was adopted by a nice family in Newport where she gets all the playtime she desires.
Boo was the quietest of the bunch. A sweet a Lab/Golden mix, she tended to play on her own or with the NAH staff more than her siblings. A very affectionate puppy, she stole the heart of the entire staff when she would reach up for a lap to lay on. Her sweet and quiet ways snagged her a loving, forever home in Newport. Her adoptive"parents" loved her name as much as we did, and decided to keep it! Boo is loving her new home and her new kitty friend "Cali".
Edward is also a Shepherd/Lab mix. He was the biggest pup of the bunch, and loved to be around people. While he enjoyed to playing with his siblings, you would often see him running for one of the staff while the others romped around him! He loved to snuggle and was always a love. Edward was the last of the puppies to leave us... he was adopted by Dr. Civic! Edward, now "Rio" and his sister "Kay Lee" are frequent visitors to NAH, which is always a treat for the staff!
