Something about Duncan
Part II of Duncan's story
The first few weeks after Duncan came home, he was very sweet and seemed to enjoy us, but he was very politely watchful; as if waiting to see if he could relax and settle into his home or whether going to be moved again. He was never nervous or shy, just waiting. Watching him allow himself to relax and let his personality out has been wonderful.
Over the years, as a
family, we’ve had several pets - dogs, cats, a snake. Even though they were all
“family pets”, really, they were all my pets. My retriever, Indy, was especially
mine. My husband, Eric, tolerated pets on my behalf and liked them well enough.
My sons grew up with pets. But
In fact, Eric wanted our
new dog to have a good Scottish name. Eric named him “Duncan.” The first thing
he does when he walks through the door is greet

I love to see
My parents are pretty
head over heels for Duncan, especially my mom. When the boys were growing up,
mom and dad would come over to see them quite often. As Ian and Tyler got older
and were often not home, the visit was just for me. Now? Now they come to see
As for me? I’m pretty
Anyone who has been
loved by a dog knows that look...that look of unconditional love that says you

Our policy on strays
All stray dogs and cats are vaccinated upon arrival for their safety and the safety of the other dogs and cats. They are also neutered and spayed on the sixth (6) day. All costs are the responsibility of the owner claiming the dog. Strays are held for five (5) days and then are for adoption.
Dog and kitten food needed
Dog food is really needed-adult only.
We need large stainless steel bowls for water. We also need treats for training, small milk bones and other tasty treats are great.
**Please donate cat/kitten food.** We have 13 cats and kittens now. Dry kitten food, Purina kitten food is ok. Friskies canned food, ground only, is also greatly needed! Please help us help them.***
We are almost out of blankets. Please donate your clean used ones.
We really need canned and dry cat/kitten food and litter right now. We also need small ceramic bowls for the kitten and cat food. We also need covered litter pans.
We need towels to bathe our dogs and cats. Please don’t throw your old towels away—we will put them to good use.
***We need nylabones and tug toys for the dogs/puppies and toys for our cats/kittens right now.***
You can drop all donations of food, toys, blankets, etc. at Orofino Builders Supply. Steve and Leila Crockett continue to be animal lovers and great supporters.

Lost and found
Went missing on April 30 in the Canoe Camp area of Hwy. 12. Female, spayed, six year old cat, mostly white coat with black/brown/tan patches. Has blue eyes. Not wearing a collar. If you have seen this cat, please call 476-9823.
Found Tuesday, April 20,
running in and out of traffic on
If you find a stray dog, please contain the dog or cat, if you feel it is safe to do so, and then call. Many times I get a call from someone that has a stray but by the time I get there the person calling says the dog ran off.
Please contain in a yard or tie the dog until I get there. We want to keep these poor dogs safe and either find their owners or get them a wonderful lifetime home.
All stray dogs and cats are vaccinated and wormed upon arrival for their safety and the safety of the other dogs and cats. They are also neutered and spayed after a five (5) day waiting period. All costs are the responsibility of the owner claiming the dog or cat. Strays are held for five days and then are up for adoption.
If you recognize any of the above strays and know who the owner is, please call. We want to get these wonderful dogs and cats back to their homes. Call 476-9823.
