This is the story of Sarah


Sarah and her littermates were dumped in a ditch with their mother. A kind lady stopped and brought the black and white Labrador Retriever mix puppies to BCHS. After that, all they knew was warmth and cleanliness. Sarah was very loving and liked to snuggle in people's arms. She enjoyed chasing her littermates and chewing on chew toys. When she was about 3 months old, a family adopted her from BCHS.

BCHS received this electronic letter in April 2011:


I wanted to say hello and send a few photos of our wonderful puppy. Our daughter elected to change her name to Midnight and she seems to like it very well.

I am amazed at how smart she is, only 1 accident since she has come home. Even our dog Sophia seems to love her; they play constantly.

Each morning the 2 dogs and I go for mini walks and her training is going great. She sits, stays close, walks well on the leash and has even learned the words IN and OUT. Each time we enter the home she sits at the door waiting for me to unhook her leash.

Funny thing she has learned how to bark; yes I know she has always barked. But now when we sit on the couch and I act like I am ignoring her she will bark at me. I tell her to hush and that I am the boss; she will bark again so I bark back and this interaction of we bark at each other lasts forever. LOL

Well please know that the invitation is ALWAYS open, please please feel free to come for a visit. WE LOVE HER!

Thank you for her.

With great respect,
The Anderson Family
