Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” the ARF cats learned about holiday foods they shouldn’t eat.
Stevie: Good news, everyone! Those two cute little dogs, Cinnamon and Toto, were adopted together.
Whiskers: Aw, that makes me very happy. They truly loved each other.
Stevie: And the lovely couple who adopted them are nearby in Murrieta.
Don: So, are there no more ARF dogs?
Stevie: Well, there are, but they are too young to be adopted right now.
Phil: Ooh! Tell us more.
Pepper: I know all about them. Seven sweet puppies turned 3 weeks old just this last Saturday.
Whiskers: I understand that four of them are males.
Don: So that leaves three females.
Pepper: Wow. There’s no fooling you, Don.
Don: Hey! You’re just jealous because my math skills are excellent.
Stevie: Cut it out, you two. Pepper, what else can you tell us about the litter?
Pepper: Their mom is about 40 pounds, and she is probably a mix of husky and German shepherd. She is a very lovely girl, with a wonderful demeanor.
Lulu: Then we can hope that her babies take after her. But what about their dad?
Pepper: Nobody knows who the father is. It’s a mystery.
Stevie: For any human who is interested in meeting the puppies, there will be a meet-n-greet on Saturday, Oct. 30. People should make an appointment to meet all of them, and they may submit applications and deposits at that time. The puppies’ photos at 2 weeks old are on ARF’s Facebook page.
Pepper: But they cannot leave the litter before they are 8 weeks old.
Phil: Right in time for the holidays!
