For 14 years, Oreo was Linton’s Cottages’ friendly and playful “watch dog” who lived next to the office in her luxurious open-air dog house and chain-link run.
A pot cake* puppy rescued from the Treasure Cay dump, she was adopted by Lee Linton from a laundry basket filled with rescue puppies being driven around Green Turtle Cay on the back of a golf cart. Oreo’s friendly, upbeat personality made her a favorite with our guests – and an entertaining and welcome companion on golf cart trips into New Plymouth.
*Pot cakes are a distinctive mixed-breed dog unique to the Bahamas and the Turks & Caicos Islands. Named after the thick residue at the bottom of a pot of peas and rice that Bahamians traditionally fed their dogs, most pot cake dogs can be identified by their smooth coats, cocked ears, and long faces.
Oreo passed away peacefully in her sleep fall 2018. She is missed by us all!
