The New Face Of Potcake Collars


I am very happy to introduce Tiki Marie.

On Friday I helped out with round 2 of the 2013 Potcake Puppy Lift. Let’s just say round 2 did not go quite as smoothly as round 1 did. The day started with the plane being delayed leaving Freeport. It landed in Fort Lauderdale, cleared customs, and then waited for an hour until the control tower cleared the plane to cross the busy runway. Unfortunately the first batch of dogs missed their connecting flight to Denver. Thanks to Heike and the volunteers plan B was put into action. Tip from the HSGB also helped to coordinate the hurdles and eventually all the dogs made it to their final destinations. In total, over the two lifts, 170 dogs and 3 kittens were airlifted out of the Bahamas. That is just awesome! Great job to everyone involved with this year’s lift.

I was very fortunate to meet a pup that caught my eye. A little 18 pounder, with the name Mulan, was in one of the first couple crates to be wheeled off the plane. Everyone in my house has been bummed out since losing Mako last month, and I have been wanting to find the perfect big eared potcake to bring into our family. I walked her and quickly began to realize that she maybe the one. Later I spoke to Heike and Ken about her. They said hang out with her and make sure she was what I was looking for. It did not take long before I pulled the trigger. It was definitley the right decision. We have taken her into our home and we are all smiles.

I later found out her story. Members of the HSGB were in the process of trying to catch another dog they had been trying to catch for weeks. It was in a seedy industrial area of Freeport, and they heard a puppy crying. She was found in a junkyard and locked in an old broke down bus. The floor was covered in feces and there were some empty styrofoam containers but no food or water at that time. No one was around so they took her back to HSGB. She was a little scared at first but very sweet and quickly discovered the joy of being clean, running, playing, and just being a dog.

We decided on Tiki Marie for her new name. I chose Tiki because of my love for tiki bars and huts everywhere, and Marie was Mako’s middle name. It just seemed right to have a little of Mako in her, and Tiki is a very cute name that fits her looks and personality. You will be seeing a lot of her. TIKI is now the new face of Potcake Collars, and an ambassador to promote the awareness of the plight of potcake dogs from the Bahamas and Caribbean.
