Time to Reflect

This is the last weekend of 2013 - a time to look back, reflect and see how far we have come.

In 2013 CPR saved and changed the lives 1200 puppies. Thank you to all of our adopters for making a place in your home and your heart for these puppies.

We had a fabulous Alumni Reunion this year. We had a couple of siblings who got to meet up again. There were also a ton of games, great food and fun!

I declare 2013 to be a year of photos. This year we did a lot of things to make our photos even better.

Zenfolio - We now have one place for all of our puppy photos. You can purchase puppy photos, browse to see the pictures of your pups siblings or check out the before and after or alumni albums. All of our photos are now in one place and we have also added videos there too! ( If you haven't checked it out, please do so.

Nikon D5100 - This year we also got new cameras for the rescue. Taking photos of puppies in the best of circumstances is challenging, puppies move FAST! Thanks to some great photo wranglers and a camera that can now take fabulous pictures even in bad light - we are headed in the right direction!

Same bell - but the new camera is giving us more detail! LOVE IT!

Smart Photo Editor - We also found a new software programs that makes it easy for us to produce the best possible photo for our puppies, in a very short time frame.

Proboards - We started a message board to allow puppy siblings to connect. I am hoping that this will go further in 2014!

Facebook - We have almost 4,500 likes on our page. We update it regularly and enjoy hearing from everyone!

Web Page - We now have a very powerful, user friendly mobile site. We are also continually updating our site with new information.

Video - Brook has started to put together videos for special events, we would like to do more and more short videos of our puppies to share with all of you.

What is ahead for 2014?

I want to do more with the Mystery Mix of the week - that was always great fun to get ideas from everyone on puppy breeds.

More Videos!

Keep the photos coming! I am making my final updates to the 2013 albums this weekend and can't wait to start filling the 2014 albums!

Doing even more on social - we are very active on Facebook, but would like to get more active on twitter and G+!

The sky is the limit! What would make your interactions with Colorado Puppy Rescue more fulfilling? Let me know - send an email to

Looking forward to sharing a great 2014 with all of you - thank you for your support.
