The Andover Townsman
---- — Tinto and Harlow are Susan Stott’s grand-dogs. Tinto, a black Labrador retriever who is almost 14, belonged to Stott’s oldest daughter, who relocated to Portland, Ore., five years ago. He now lives with Stott on Pasho Street. His pal Harlow is a 1-year-old yellow Labrador retriever who is part of her younger daughter’s family. They live in the house Stott raised her children in on Robandy Road. Tinto likes to sleep and Harlow likes to play, but that doesn’t stop Tinto from being the alpha dog. He manages to fill his mouth with all of Harlow’s toys until he has had enough and lies down to take a nap. Sometimes Harlow joins him, as she did when this photo was captured while the two were on vacation together in Maine this summer. Tinto can often be seen first thing in the morning walking with Stott through The Park on their way for their daily coffee.
