Pet Obituary
The Passing of Serenity
On July 5, 2021 Serenity, a poodle living at Harbour Vista, was put to sleep after suffering severe injuries from an attack by two Pit Bulls. Serenity, a rescue dog, had happily lived here with her owner for two years and was his constant and faithful companion.

When Serenity was attacked her owner immediately rushed to try to save her. He was injured trying to extricate her from the two Pit Bulls. She was rushed to the emergency vet hospital where she was sedated and spent the
night. During the surgery that was performed the following morning the vet was determined that her injuries were too severe and the owner was forced to have the vet put her to sleep.
Loving and Freindly Pet
Serenity loved her many walks here at Harbour Vista and had many human and canine friends. She and her owner took almost daily walks at the nature reserve center and various parks in the area. Serenity was known by all that knew her to be a happy, fun and loving dog. She is and will always be dearly missed. ■

Meet McScruffins, a new puppy who is a Poodle-Terrier mix.  Selected from a rescue center, McScruffins has been living at HV for about 5 months with his step-sister Rosie, a chihuahua mix.  He loves people and will jump up and down like a pogo stick when his owner returns home from being away.  He loves to leap up on the furniture and then fly off.  The owner calls him her "wild and crazy" dog.  He loves to play chase with his step-sister and is always entertaining to watch. 
Growing Pains
McScruffins is going through his puppy stages and has explored the dryer looking for dryer balls to chew, he has chewed up a check book, more than one pair of shoes and has enjoyed playing with a plant and the attached
dirt that he found on the the patio and delivered to the cushions of his owner's white sofa.  He will eventually (hopefully soon) grow out of this stage, in the meantime the owner has done her best to puppy-proof her condo.
His Local Friend
Mc Scruffins has met and fallen in love with a neighbor's Dachshund puppy, Chanel, who was pet of the month in January.  Both puppies like to chase and roll around on top of each other to the enjoyment of their owners, who babysit each other's pets.■
