Sunnyside Dog of the Month: Meet Archer!

Archer comes to us from Fort Worth, Texas by way of the Oregon Dog Rescue in Tualatin (If you ever make it out to there please send my regards to Gretchen the Cat, their Chief Temperament Tester.) He is a Silver Labrador and about six months old in these photos. A resident of Taylor Street, he’s been enjoying walks in Laurelhurst Park, playing at the Mt. Tabor dog park and generally sniffing around the neighborhood. He’s been with us well over a month now, is full of energy and prides himself on his perfect situational awareness.

Prior to meeting Archer I’d never heard of a Silver Lab. The distinctive coat color from which they derive the name is the expression of a recessive trait carried by Chocolate Labs. Referred to as a “dilute” coat, the effect is seen when mutations in the gene encoding melanophilin cause atypical distribution of melanin-containing cells affecting the dog’s skin, hair, eyes, nose and mouth.

Having lived with a lovely Black Lab for many years, we’ve known for some time that we were ready to bring another dog into the family, but finding Archer took time and patience. As with many things it seemed at times that we would never be fast enough or high enough on the list — until suddenly we were.

Board Election Results

Thank you to Christina Estimé for administering our election and SEUL for lending us their surprisingly cozy parking lot.  With four candidates running for five seats results were never really in doubt, but it was still very nice to see and speak to everyone in person.

It is very exciting to see two newcomers join the SNA Board in Ash Hester and Jessie Maran.  Incumbents Dave Boush and Russell Rinaldi were also elected to second two-year terms.  K.C. Hoffert, Lorraine Henriques, Colin Wonnacott and Sunia Gibbs, one year into their two year terms, round out the board to an even eight.  The remaining empty seat may be filled by appointment at any time during the next two years.

The next meeting of the SNA will be August 13th at 7pm via Zoom.
