My name is Blair Stanford, and I originally learned about Star Gazing Farm via the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). I particularly like working on events that introduce the public to the SGF animals and that promote education and interest in the farm.
Sullivan is a 9-10 year old black lab. He was found running around loose in Virginia. When animal control picked him up, he was a mess. He was totally infested with fleas, and all of the fur on his lower back and backside had been chewed and scratched off, leaving a sort of ‘elephant skin’. He has grown back enough fur on his back to have a “combover” now, and is a very happy dog running around the farm. Read more about Sullivan.
