Our Newest Addition to the Stoneridge Engineering Team:
Name: Sprinkles Marie Hickman - RIP
Occupation: Cairn Terrier, Added on March 11, 2006
Responsibilities: Companion for Rafferty and
Additional Employee Morale
Adopted through the kind folks from
Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network
Sprinkles suffered a sudden aortic clot and passed away peacefully on
December 17th, 2010 as Sandy and I comforted her. We treasure the
brief time we had with this sweet little dog. She was loved dearly and
will be remembered.
|Who is Sprinkles??
is a 5 1/2 year old female Cairn Terrier. She was previously a breeder
dog at a puppy mill in Tennessee, and her birthday is May 14th. Thanks to the great folks at Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network
and her very loving Foster mom (Karen in Yuma, Arizona), Sprinkles
began learning how to be a free and happy little
dog. Sprinkles didn't have any toys when she was in the puppy mill, so
she's only now learning how to play. We're sure that Rafferty will help
"show her the ropes". We feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be
able to adopt this
sweet little girl and provide her with her forever home. She and
Rafferty are now the best of friends and they love to play together in
the house and back yard.
