Sunny and Cher, the two puppies whose ears were cut off by an unknown person, have been adopted into forever families through the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services’ adoption program.

The Department received over one hundred adoption applications for the two puppies. All applications were evaluated and the adoptive families were chosen based on their ability to provide the best environment for each of the puppies.

Cher has been adopted by Penny and Scott Scarbrough of El Cajon and Sunny has been adopted by Kathy Caplis of Oceanside.
“After the abuse that these two puppies suffered at the hands of an unknown suspect, the Department is happy to announce that both Sunny and Cher have been adopted into wonderful, loving families,” said Dawn Danielson, Director of Animal Services.

On Nov. 19, Sunny was found outside a shopping center in Mission Valley and brought to the Department of Animal Services shelter. Sunny’s ears had been cruelly cut off. The puppy received veterinary care and he has been in foster care.

On Dec. 7, Cher arrived at the County Animal Shelter with her ears cut off. Cher received veterinary care in Mexico for her ears and has been in foster care with her brother.

The Department of Animal Services wants to remind all who applied to adopt the puppies, as well as the public, that there are many other dogs waiting for homes. For more information on adoptions or to view photos of available animals, please visit http://www.sddac.com/adoptions.asp.

    There was a highly effeceint executive who lived in Carme though effective was not able to get everything he needed to do done. So to remedy the problem he agreed to be cloned. The clone looked exactly like him and because of genetics the two were exactly alike.. the clone dressed just like him, talked like him and even acted just like the executive. There was just one difference… the clone cussed. Because there were two to get the job done… the executive could handle more projects and could get them all done because of the clones help. However, he was getting judged for the clones cussing. Everybody thought it was him. This really made him mad. He talked to the clone and explained that this was not acceptable. The clone couldn't help himself and cussed again at a company picnic near Carmel by the ocean.. the executive lost it and just shoved the clone over the cliff. Ofcourse the executive was arrested… for making an obcene clone fall.
