Power 1 Credit Union President/CEO Henry Prior and his wife Karen had never owned a dog until 11 years ago when their chow Retriever/mutt Bare entered their lives. Karen teaches 5th grade at an inner city school and she noticed a little puppy lying in the dirt on the schoolyard for two days. A girl from her class placed the puppy in a cardboard box and Karen took it to the vet. She never told her husband anything about the puppy until after the pup survived an eight-day animal hospital stay. When Henry arrived home that night, his wife informed him that “He” had a dog. There in the family room sat a puppy who was hairless and smelly from mange treatments.
