Meringue – Rest in Peace

This morning I learned that yet another of the 12 Holiday Confections has gone to the Bridge. This is the group that was rescued, along with Divinity, in late November 2008.

Meringue is now the sixth Cairn from this group that I know of, after Tink, Stollen, Shortbread, Bizcochos, and Divinity who have unfortunately passed away.

Bizcochos – Rest in Peace

I’ve learned that another of the 12 Holiday Confections has gone to the Bridge. This is the group that was rescued, along with Divinity, in late November 2008.

Bizcochos is the fifth Cairn from this group that I know of, after Tink, Stollen, Shortbread, and Divinity who have unfortunately passed away.

Shortbread – Rest in Peace

Divinity was rescued along with eleven other Cairn Terrier’s in late November, 2008. This group was affectionately called, the 12-Holiday Confections.

One of these rescued Cairn’s was named Shortbread, and he was about 3-5 years old at time of rescue. Sadly, I’ve learned that Shortbread went to the Rainbow Bridge only a short while after his adoption.

Update: A Paw Print for Shortbread was able to be included in the Col. Potter Remembrance Quilt.

Stollen – Rest in Peace

Divinity was rescued along with eleven other Cairn Terrier’s in late November, 2008. This group was affectionately called, the 12-Holiday Confections.

Shortly after Divinity came into my life, I learned about this group, and that one of them had been very sick, and died not long after being rescued. Recently, I learned this poor Cairn was named Stollen, and that she died on January 21, 2009. Stollen had lived just two months in freedom.

Out of the 12-Holiday Confections, the three I know of that have passed, are Tink, Divinity, and Stollen. I’ve posted about Tink, and certainly about Divinity, however, I wanted to write a post to acknowledge Stollen. I will publish posts on the remaining Holiday Confections as I learn of their passing.

UPDATE: There is a remembrance quilt being made for Cairn Terriers rescued by the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue, but how have unfortunately, passed on. Stollen is a part of this quilt, and her Paw Print square is shown below.

RIP Tink

In December, I wrote a post about a 19 year old Cairn Terrier named Tink. Tink’s rescue occurred from the same puppy-mill, and at the same time as Divinity’s. A week later, I wrote an update on the rescue of Tink, Divinity, and the 12 Holiday Confections.

Tink

Unfortunately, I’ve learned that due to liver failure, Tink had to be euthanized in early January. Tink is now with the angels.

Update: Tink, Divinity, and the rescue of the 12 Holiday Confections

I’ve learned that along with the 12 Cairn Terrier’s the Col. Potter volunteers rescued during November 2008, that these same volunteers also rescued about 20 Basset Hounds from the same puppy-mill.

This event occurred during the rescue of the 12 Cairn’s when the puppy-mill owner said he would shoot the hounds if the volunteers from Col. Potter didn’t take them. After hearing the owners statement, the volunteers agreed. The group called for additional help and completed the rescue. These dogs were turned over to a Basset Hound rescue.
