Our Weekly Falmouth Enterprise Column


By Catriona Garry

Jackie B., Lab mix

I want to formally introduce myself. My name is Catriona Garry. I am a resident of Falmouth and a volunteer at the Friends of Falmouth Dogs. I am currently on my summer break from Lasell College, where I am studying communications. I don't have a set career path for after graduation but I hope that it involves dogs.

Being a volunteer at the FFD shelter is like being with your second family—except your relatives are a mix of both humans and dogs. I like to come into the shelter at least three times a week. My first plan of action is to say "hello" to all our shelter residents and see which dog I can take out for a walk.

We have two dogs at FFD at the moment. Mr. Jackie B. has graced us with his presence for a bit and is in the process of looking for his forever home.

Jackie was one of the first dogs I met at FFD and being around him brings back a sense of playfulness I haven't seen in a long time. He is on the lookout for an active, patient and loving family.

Ellie, Australian shepherd

While his leash manners and basic commands have improved since arriving at the shelter, Jackie is still a young puppy and would need a home that is willing to work with him on training and curbing his abundance of energy. That being said, Jackie B. always has a smile on his face when any volunteer walks by and is always ready to give plenty of puppy kisses.

A new face at Friends of Falmouth Dogs is Ellie. Ms. Ellie is an Australian shepherd mix, approximately 5 years old. I haven't had a chance to fully interact with her yet, but from my brief meetings, Ellie is very sweet to anyone she meets. Being 5 years old means nothing to her, as she enjoys running around in the play pens outside and going for walks. As the volunteers begin to bond with Ellie, we will see more of her personality and gain more information about her.

Just a quick reminder to put an identification tag on your dog's collar. Petco has a machine that creates these tags within minutes! This is an inexpensive item that if your pet goes missing, could help get them home to you sooner.

We are open Sunday from 3 to 5 PM, Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to noon and from 4 to 6 PM on Monday and Thursday.

It has been a pleasure writing this week's column and I hope to guest-write again in the future. Enjoy the weekend.
