In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog.

Sandi

Aunt Carol – it’s me Sandi checking in to say hi from Gainesville. Next month it will be two and a half years since you found me my new home. This place has the best squirrels and lizards to chase. This is a picture of me cruising along the fence line looking for lizards. I haven’t caught a squirrel yet but I sure have caught a lot of lizards. In March I had patella surgery on my left knee. The surgery wasn’t so bad but two months of limited activity with no squirrel and lizard chasing was the pits. The doctor over at the vet school did a great job on my knee and now I’m as good as new. Hope all is going well with you.

Mugs

Aunt Carol - it's me Mugs checking in to say hi. I've been in my new home for two years next month and I'm still having a good time here. Mom says I'm just as cute as a button but I knew that anyway. One of my favorite activities is hanging out in the kitchen hoping for a morsel to drop on the floor. This is a picture of me in the kitchen looking up at the counter waiting on that morsel to fall. Just wanted to check in and let you know I am doing fine. Love, Mugs.

Ginger

Hi Aunt Carol - Ginger checking in. It's been 14 months since I came to my new home and I want you to know I'm having a wonderful time here with my cocker brother and sisters, Charlie, Sandi and Mugs. My mom says I look like such a little angel when I'm sleeping so she is sending a picture of me sleeping on the couch. Mom also says I am one of the most affectionate cockers she has ever met and I give wonderful cocker kisses. Yesterday I went to the vet school for my quarterly eye checkup and the doctors were pleased to see I was doing so well. They think I might have more sight in my good eye than they originally thought after my cataract surgery. I sure do wish more people would give cockers with limited sight a chance. I don't let my sight limitations hold me back one bit and run all around the yard and love my daily walks around the neighborhood and I steal all my sibling's toys and hide them under the dining room table. But they know where I hide the toy stash and don't seem to mind. Thank you again for finding me a home and you can come visit us anytime you would like.

Nelson

Hi Carol, Just wanted to thank you and your organization for all the fine work that you do. I adopted Nelson in the spring of 2003 and have since relocated back to Long Island in NY.. Couldn't resist sending an update and tell you how much Nelson's adoption changed my life..he's my best bud.. This is Nelson on the patio just last month..we're both lovin' life! Sincerely, Karen Rohl Kelly

Sparky

Hello! Bill and I thought you would enjoy a couple of pictures of one of your foster children in his new life! We renamed "Mr Barky von Schnauzer" to "Sparky" and as you can see little Sparky has gained some weight! He is pictured with our other dog, Chester. Everyone says they look like salt and pepper together. The two dogs have really bonded and I think Chester would be lost without him. We are still working on improving Sparky's relationship with our two cats but we are definitely glad he is a part of our family. Thanks for what you do as foster parents! Jennifer and Bill Croteau Dade City, FL

Holly

Here is a picture of Holly (previously known as Hope) as promised for you and Rob. I will keep you posted. Lori --- Lori Heffner

Molly

Carol: Just wanted to send you a picture of Molly who I adopted a year ago from an emergency listing you had for her. She looks A LOT like Brewster, if I had to guess they are related. She is very easy going and a big girl...getting smaller but will always be a burly curly girl. Enjoy!Cathy

Teddy

Teddy is one of the sweetest dogs, I want to thank Jane and Florida Cocker for letting me adopt him. He is a great addition to our family, whatever we eat he wants some also and he loves to go for walks. Here are a few of our many pictures of Teddy.

Harley

I wanted to send you a few new pictures of Harley. He's doing so well, we love him like crazy. He runs around here like a puppy, it's so cute!!! I hope all is well with you and yours Chris

Dolly

Dear Carol and Rescue Group, Attached is Daisy's (aka Dolly) picture in her new home. She's got more energy that we remembered pups having but a good girl. Our vet thinks she's about 1.5 years and very sound. Also, very long. This is the first doxie we've had that has great potential for back issues but we know what to do and what to avoid. We have sung your praises for caring for dogs that can be 'recycled'. Thank you for your efforts. You've saved a sweet dog and we're delighted she's part of our home. Even her older sister Sophee is getting adjusted. There has even been some dog play and that's a good sign. Again, thanks for caring for these animals. What you do makes an incredible difference in the life of animals and owners. Check out the little smile on Daisy's face in the sleeping photo. I think she's glad to be here.

Mylo and Beni

A week ago, we went to Petsmart @Wesley Chapel with the hopes of adopting a new pet. Little did we know that we would end up with two !! We could not decide, and so Mylo & Benito (now Beni) came home with us. They get along great, & have taken to sleeping in our room in their bed. (I know they'd love to sleep with us, but our bed is just too high for the little guys). They come running when you call "boys" and are adjusting well to their surroundings. (as you can see by the picture of them on our loveseat - fast asleep !!) We are so so happy we found your organization & tell everyone we meet where these two wonderful little boys came from. Again, thanks for our two new additions, Tony & Fran Viscomi

Tobie

Hi Carol, It's been close to a year since I was adopted (I was adopted on July 27, 2008). I wanted to write and tell you what a wonderful year I've had and how happy I am in my forever home! Since being adopted, my mommy and I have attended basic obedience school. I did so well at basic, that mommy enrolled me in advanced obedience training where I earned my canine good citizen (CGC) award! Mommy likes to brag and tell people that I have my Bachelor's degree! I love my home. I have lots and lots of toys, have my own bed, get to go on lots of walks and ride in the car, and have discovered that I love ice cubes as treats! Yummy! Let's just say I have my mommy wrapped around my paw-she just loves me! Thank you so much for finding me a great home! :) Love, Tobie Garbers

Boomer

Attached are pictures of Boomer in his new home with his new dog family. He is wonderful and we already love him to pieces. Thankyou for saving this great dog! I will send new pictures when he is fattened up and over his mange.Leslie Drewry

Buster and Rufus

Hi Carol! Just wanted to let you know Buster and Rufus are doing great and play well with eachother. Here is a picture of them together for your site. Thanks again for getting me another great dog! David

Ellie

Hi Carol, We wanted to let you know that Treasure is now known as Ellie Mae. I have attached a pic we took yesterday in the back yard. She seems to be happy and content and is answering to her new name (most of the time). :-) She also did eat dinner last night and breakfast this morning. Guess she was hungry from all the excitement! Thank you so much for taking care of her until she could find her forever home with us. She is helping us to heal our hearts from our loss of Winnie. All of the folks at your rescue have been wonderful to us - especially Sharon. We will keep in touch and keep you up to date on Ellie. If you ever wonder how she is doing please do not hesitate to call oremail us. Thanks again, Dotty, Joe and Ellie p.s. When we were at Petco this morning (with Ellie of course) a couple asked about Ellie and I gave them one of your cards. I neglected to ask for their name, but if someone says they saw one of your dogs at Petco on Hudson - it was us!

Daisy

Hello: I adopted Daisy from Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue the summer of 2004 after my first wonderful cocker spaniel Barney died. Daisy was a little over a year old at the time. She's now 6 years old and still full of fun, love and playful spirit. Her beagle brother Bandit died almost two years ago (summer 2007) and I adopted another beagle named Buddy. Daisy and Buddy are now constant companions, though she definitely rules even though he's 3 years older and about 10 pounds heavier than she is. Daisy loves getting belly rubs and taking long walks in our new neighborhood. We moved to Hudson in Pasco county last summer (2008). She has great fun stalking the squirrels and lizards in our big backyard. Daisy and Buddy are heard "singing" daily. They love to welcome me home with a "song"! :) I've attached a few photos; two are of just Daisy and two are of Daisy and Buddy. Daisy is a wonderful dog and I am so grateful that I was able to adopt her thanks to Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue. She makes every day a happy one! Sincerely, Jennifer Kruck

Buddy

Hi Carol, We have had Buddy only 3 days and feel he has rescued us instead of the other way around. He is such a good dog who loves to follow us everywhere. We sure are lucky to receive such love and affection. He enjoys his daily walks as well as his golf cart rides. All the neighbors have fallen in love with him. The vet mentioned to us this afternoon that we lucked out with Buddy. We certainly know it and feel like he has always been part of our family. Thanks Renee for being such a great foster mom.

Missy and Maggie

Hi Carol, Sorry for the delay in sending this message. I cannot tell you how much I admire you for what you are doing for these beautiful pets. Maggie is such a sweet and loving girl. She loves human (especially female) contact. I actually call her my rub "slut" (hope this doesn't offend anyone out there). She's loves her squeaky toys, has bonded well with her new sister Missy, and plays well with other dogs as well. Maggie was retested for heartworm 6 months after her treatment and we were thrilled the test was negative. Again, Carol we thank God for you and the gift of Maggie. We'll see you when it's time for our next family addition. Respectfully, Roland & Shirley Bouvier Pictures are Missy and Maggie respectfully.

Daisy

Hi Carol, Daisy is such a joy and we are so happy we found her!
