Killingworth’s Newest Superheroes
Have no fear, Killingworth; Super Gibson is here! Gibson, a gentle and well-mannered black Lab mix, is Killingworth’s new top dog and superhero. This 13-year-old gentleman was adopted from the Connecticut Humane Society in 2011 and has happily protected and comforted his loved ones ever since. Gibson’s superpower is clearly his “man’s best friend” attitude, dedicating his days to the spread of goodwill and cheer with every step he takes.
A wonderful companion, Gibson enjoys hiking with his mom and his best doggie friend, Becca. He even goes so far as to jump into the shower with his mom to comfort and protect her (wink, wink) from the thunder and lightning that he so fears. Gibson, the residents of Killingworth will sleep better knowing you are our superhero!
Harriet, a spunky 11-month-old mini Australian shepherd, bounded into Town Hall to claim her number 2 prize with the energy and enthusiasm of a true puppy. Harriet, whose teeny, tiny tail never stopped wagging, took control of the town clerk’s office and never looked back. It was easy to see that her superpower is her ability to charm anyone and everyone she meets. And that’s exactly what landed her with her family in Killingworth; her dad took one look at her in a pet store, and it was love at first sight. So it’s fitting that Harriet is now a Killingworth superhero.
And rounding out the top 3 is Penne, an adorable 11-year-old dachshund, apparently named after, yes, the pasta she most resembles. Penne arrived in the town clerk’s office in her dad’s arms, looking like the royalty that she is. Penne, you are truly our superhero. Although she suffers from epilepsy, she shakes off each seizure with a quick drink of water, then picks up right where she left off, playing with her favorite toys. Penne’s superpower is the speed and accuracy with which she can remove the squeaker from only certain toys, but never her favorites.
The Town Clerk’s Office would like to thank the wonderful dog owners of Killingworth who licensed in June and happily share their best friends with our office. We just love getting to know you and your superheroes.
