In early September last year, I had the chance to meet Lambi and Carib, two potcake sisters rescued from Carriacou, Grenada.
Lambi & Carib’s mom was working at the vet hospital as a volunteer at the time. One day, one of the residents, a fisherman, came by to ask if he could rehome some puppies. The owners had been asking him to take the puppies out to drown them. The next day, he came back with the only 2 puppies he could find. They were sandy and covered in fleas and ticks.
Lambi & Carib’s (now) owner had lost her yorkie the previous year, and was planning on adopting a dog, so she picked one of the puppies – Lambi. After spending a guilty night having a hard time sleeping, she decided to adopt the second puppy as well – Carib, and brought them both back to Ottawa.
Fun Fact: Lambi is named after the island word for conch meat and Carib is the local Grenadian brand of beer. Together, they form a common meal there!
Lambi & Carib both will hunt small animals (most likely a leftover from their time on the island), but Lambi had a bad spinal injury in December, so though she thankfully is able to walk, her mobility is a bit wonky.
It took some time during the photography session for Lambi to warm up, so I took some time at the beginning to bond with her. They were both so sweet and they were the most relaxed pair of potcakes I’ve ever met!
The 10% of Lambi & Carib’s session fee has been donated to Homes for Paws Dog Rescue in Ottawa, Canada.
