Lily has a passion for bringing the Counselors anything she can find; she would even give you her nose, if it came off. We waited patiently for Lily to return after she helped her family welcome a little human brother. Now she is bark-in-action and brings so much fun to any day! Help us congratulate this lovely lab, here’s to you Lily!

We love Ghost because he may seem very regal at first glance, but once he warms up, he is just a goofball at heart! When it’s time to play this boy will bounce around like a clumsy puppy. His favorite is to sneak up on the Counselors and bump them from behind. It’s his way to say “come and play”! So never judge a pup at first sight because this one is just amazing.
