Sugar

Sugar ("Samantha" to us) is coming along SO well! She has been wonderful with 10 month old Blake. He has also been very good with her. She is eating well and adjusting well, and now that I will be gone for 5 days, she will have a chance to bond with Brian more strongly. But already there is a definite bond. He loves her dearly, as do I. We couldn't do without her! Thank you so much for keeping her so healthy and well looked after 'til we could come along and adopt her! She's a precious gift to be sure. Warmest regards, Mary and Brian and Samantha

Liberty and Justice

Carol, I received the picture & note last night. Thank you! I enjoyed reading the note - but am surprised that she gave him up.... she seemed like she really cared for him & obviously knew his personality. Justice has been doing very very well. On Friday we decided to let him be "free" and he slept in our bed. We put Liberty in the crate. They slept 7 hours - JOY!!! The best sleep we got in a week!!! Each day Justice has shown more & more personality and isn't dominated by Liberty anymore. His eyes aren't downcast anymore - they are bright & he is interactive. So, Justice has been sleeping with us every night & we have Liberty in the crate by the bed. They both seem very content and sleep thru the night. I'm so happy you went back home & got Justice the day we met you - I am really happy we gave gim a home, I know he is going to be a GREAT dog. Contrary to what the note says - Justice LOVES car rides! We have been taking him & Liberty to friends houses. I want Justice to realize that even though he is going places - he will always return to his home. Liberty has been giving us difficulty with potty training. We will have him outside, he will come on and then decide to go potty in the house. So, yesterday, we started where he has to be supervised at all times, regular visits outside, when he goes outside he is getting an immediate treat reward. They started doggie school this past Saturday. The instructor came to our house & we signed up for a 4 lesson package. Liberty is picking up quick - except for the potty training. Liberty knows his name & sit. We are working on down & leave it. Justice seems like he is learning his name, but doesn't always respond - I think a few more days and he will have it. He knows sit & leave it. We are doing clicker training - all positive reinforcement training. I started taking Justice to work yesterday. The trainer said it is good for them to have separate time too & Liberty isn't ready to go to the office yet. When I went to court yesterday my secretary said he cried & then howled. Then i came back & he got lots of attention. Today he did much better - cried a little, then sat in the chair & waited for me. So, I think he just needs to know that he is finally home & I will not leave him. So overall - Justice is wonderful, really getting comfortable & will be a great dog. Liberty is my mischievous baby, will be a little more challenging and will also be a great dog. I will keep you posted. Here are a couple of pics: Made himself quite comfy! playing in the back yard just relaxing after dinner! they love tug-o-war! Karen J Tufte, PA

Gus

Carol, Just want to update you on Gus. For the 1st month or so he panicked when we left him alone. Tried to claw his way through the door we left by. I bought him a cage. He hated that. We put the cage away, gave him the run of the house again, and now he does great. He greets us when we return, and we are never gone more than 2-3 hours. By the way, he was/is potty trained. Not even one little accident. I walk him at least 2 times a day, mostly on the golf course. He loves that and goes nuts over each and every squirrel. Once a day I leash him to our golf cart and let him run as fast as he wants. He loves that too. In a little over 3 months he's the best known dog dog on the golf course. He's so friendly, everyone loves him. The two gals that work in the Pro Shop keep doggie treats for him and for other members' dogs. So do the gals in the office. He always receives a warm welcome. We found a groomer who just loves dogs. She has a place in Floral City called Greta's Touch. Greta was her dog, now deceased. Her name is Jean and she a fenced in yard at her house and also at her Grooming business. We will leave Gus with her when we go to Connecticut for 6 days. Our oldest grandson is graduating from HS on the 14th of June. I will miss Gus and will worry about him. But Jean will bring him to her place of grooming every day and let him run and enjoy her other dogs. I know Gus misses being able to run the 15 acres you have. I can't give him that, but he really loves having a full time people family. I have some photos that I'll try to forward to you. Thanks for your part in making Gus such a great guy. Don Black

Bridie

Hi Carol, Was looking at your website and thought I’d send an update on Bridie. One picture was taken when we first got her and the other more recently at a fund raiser for therapy dogs. She’s six years old now and still the best. Respectfully, Jim Brunton

Bailey

Bailey has been a gift from God for us. He settled in right away but it took Maggie awhile to adjust. Today they are side by side. He goes to the vet this Wednesday. Will keep you updated. Enjoy the pictures. Jim

Timmy

Hi Carol, I just wanted to let you know that Timmy is doing very well. He has adjusted nicely in our home with our other dogs. He is such a hunter! Our Springer Spaniels have been trying to catch a squirrel for quite a while and Timmy has already come close to catching one. He is going to show the Springers how to do it. ha He really is an adorable dog! He loves to cuddle. In the morning, he doesn’t want to get out of bed. He is a very slow eater. The other 3 dogs finish eating quickly and they wait patiently for him to finish so that they can check out his bowl for crumbs. ha Hope you enjoy the pictures! Amy and Chris Blazejowski

Scout

Hi Carol I wanted to touch base and tell you..... Scout is my little sweetheart! He and I are like GLUE! He is the best doggie ever....my buddy!! I've attatched a pic for ya! "With God, all things are possible" Sylvia

Rocky

Dear CSRNE, I'm settling in nicely in my new digs! Most of my days are spent exploring the paths around my new home, a little hiking and I even manage to squeeze in time for fetch with my football! (I'm expecting the Patriots to be looking to me for some pointers!) Sometimes I get to join my dad at work at the fire station. I'm the handsome new mascot for the Millbury Fire Station. I even have my own handmade turnout coat to keep me looking good while on the job. Thank you so much for bringing me to Jon and Kate's lives, we are a perfect match! They sure know how to scratch a belly! Love, Rocky

Javi

Dear Carol and John,I wanted to thank you both so very much for helping me find a new home for Javi. Without your help in posting him as a featured pet we would not have found Pete, Judy and little Ashley from Mount Dora. We met them today and Javi's little stub never stopped wagging. He is off to a wonderful new life with a family that I know will love him to pieces until he is a little old man dog!Keep living the good and right life and if I can help you out with ;anything please don't hesitate to call. I have attached a photo of Javi with his new little mom Ashley.Thanks again

Sue Ellen

Carol, Sue Ellen is doing well in her new home with Elsa and Bob. They called at 9:30 PM to let us know that she was settling in and adapting to her new home. So much she has already found the doggy stairs to the bed, climbed up, and was sleeping on a pillow. I am attaching the picture we took before leaving this afternoon of Sue Ellen, Elsa, Bob and her new brother, a Chinese Crested/Poodle Mix. You can see a little bit of their Italian Greyhound in the bottom right corner. Bob just came from a chiropractic adjustment, thus the neck collar. We'll get the paperwork and check to you, most likely via Jane as we are not going to be in town Saturday. Jeffrey May

Luna

Hi Carol, I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how happy we are with Luna (formally known as Milly). She is such a loving and sweet dog. It took a few days for her to trust us and to become familiar with her surroundings, but now she is as if she has been here for a long time. She and Cosmo are close buddies, just as you said they would be. She curls up on our laps after dinner on the couch, but she loves doing to the dog park and taking long walks. I have attached some recent photos on Luna and one with Cary and Cosmo on the chair. She is NEVER short of kisses and is always ready for attention. She has given us such joy, Carol, and we wanted you to know that we thank you for saving her for us. Thanks again for all, and God bless you for the work that you do. Sincerely, Mary and Cary Kaufman

Bosco

Dearest Carol: Wanted you to see the sweetest, most beautiful boy EVER!!! A couple of the pics were a little fuzzy so I used the “cartoon” affect. He is doing beautifully, as you can see. We look at him and our hearts burst with love and joy that he is here with us. Thank you so much! We can never thank you enough for saving Bosco, nor can we thank you enough for what you do everyday for so many more like him. Cathy, Steven & Bosco Stauffer

Zoey

Lulu

Hi Carol, I just wanted to send a note to let you know that Lulu is doing great with us. Here are two pictures of her. She recently went for training at Petsmart (grad cap) and learned how to walk with us and not bark at other dogs or chase the squirrels. The other picture of her is when Phil left the pantry door open. She ripped open a bag of flour that I had forgot that I put on the bottom shelf (hence the white beard!). We always tell people about the rescue when they talk about getting a cocker and what good luck we have had with adopting two dogs from the rescue. Have a great summer, Phil and Anna Nahajewski

Rascal

Thought you would like to see some new photos of Rascal (formerly Benny). He is a wonderful dog. He is well behaved and gets along with my other two dogs. Keep up the good work. You guys have helped so many dogs and there are soon many more that need help. Thanks again Angie King

Myles, formerly Quincy

Carol- Just checking in and showing you some new photos of Myles (formerly Quincy). He truly is the World's Best Dog (but you already knew that!) and he loves his new home up here in Georgia. We have attached some photos of him basking in the pool-you were right he is obsessed with water!! His new favorite ritual with us is to go to Bruster's Ice cream shop every other Sunday for a dog sundae! We hope you are well-just wanted to send you some pictures of our happy cocker which is all thanks to you!! Take care! Kris and Christine

Jasper

Hi. My name is Jasper and I am 2 years old. I was taken to the pound by my previous family when I was really young because I had broken my leg and they did not want to pay the vet to have it fixed. The Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue organization rescued me one day before I was scheduled to be put down. Boy, that was a close one! Now I have a new family who takes good care of me. I had a run in with a skunk awhile back and my new family was not too happy with me so, although I can’t make any promises, I’m pretty sure I won’t do that again! Now I have a lot of fun tormenting my new sister, Chelsea, who is such a diva. If the Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue organization hadn’t rescued me, I wouldn’t be here to tell my tail, I mean tale. Anything you can give to them would really help to save good dogs like me. Thank you
