Our Newest Sunny Rock Canine Host arrived this October, 2006

Filed under: What's New at Sunny Rock — Sally at 2:44 pm on Saturday, October 28, 2006

Hi…if you recall last May be said a sad Goodbye to Campi our beloved Dalmatian. Those who know us well know that Campi will be forever in our and our guests hearts and memories. We truly struggled through the summer with a four legged void and it was noticed by everyone.

This past weekend while in Toronto…Jan, Sally Uncle Ev and Auntibell (Annabelle), as a team interviewed the many candidates for the “Four Legged Sunny Rock Host Job”. The joy description was easy and would have been accomplished by any one of the eager candidates

The Host that captured our hearts is ACE an 11 week old Labradoodle. Ace got her name as she is blacker than the “ace of spades”, was the single pup in the litter, and she is “number one”.

As Ace is a Mono Colour it is difficult to take pictures of her. Wat our website for a picture of her soon. Still very young Ace is still sleeping a lot. She is resting up…for the future crazy moments. We can feel the momentum building.

Hole to introduce her to you soon at Sunny Rock B&B.
