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

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!

Lady and Pepper Carol Here's a picture that I had taken by a photographer this weekend. Great picture. Pepper's so black it's hard to see her eyes.

Monty Kibbles

Hopefully you will include this in your success stories! I have to tell you my little sweetheart continues to surprise me and earn more cells in my heart...no - he's stolen my heart near completely! This little "senior" guy you talked me into taking nearly a year ago has taken small steps to owning my heart and last night was a HUGE leap! He has always wanted to be close to me and is indeed my shadow but last night (after a full grooming, nail clipping, and massage) he slept in my arms for the first time! This precious little guy is the sweetest little guy (after Maxwell of course) I have ever had the good fortune to know! I don't know why someone kicked this little doll to the curb but they were incredibly stooooopid! Three months on Glucosamine and eye meds for about a month and he's clear on all fronts. He's healthy, obviously happy as a clam, verrry well behaved, and loved! Thanks for this little darling! My sweet little boy. Nothing says I love you like flowers! Find a florist near you now

Kara

Hi Carol I wanted to update you on Kara... As of January 11th 2009 we have had Kara living and loving with us for 6 years now....It's so hard to think back to life without her..... Kara has brought so much into our lives..... She is very spoiled and most of all very happy and loving life....She is the Princess and she lets us know it... Kara has us trained well....And we would have it no other way... Since we have moved to DeLand and Kara has her own privacy fenced in backyard.... She has made friends with the neighbors dogs... The neighbors have a Cocker and a Rottie....They love running up and done the fence and getting lot of exercise.....Our neighbors love it as well because their dogs are over weight but they love their dogs like we love our Kara...They arrant dogs they are our kids..... Kara just had her yearly check up and got a clean bill of heath... Kara's vet said she was in perfect health.... Its so hard to believe that when you got Kara she was heart worm positive and you saw to it that her little life was saved and we were the blessed ones to adopt her.... Carol thank you so much for answering the add when I put it out there on the Internet that we were looking for a cocker/cocker mix..... Thank you again for all you do.. Paul, Sandie & Kara Adams DeLand, Florida

Lily

Lily is doing great. She's a terrific traveler; very smart and observant; probably lived in a house before, because she seems to be housebroken and almost knows "sit." She's happy, outgoing, and unafraid. She and Tux haven't even had a harsh word (yet!). We gave her a red terrycloth "dachsund" squeaky toy, and she flips it around and snorts after it. Right from the first night, she has slept on my husband's bed (which is fine, because Tux prefers to sleep with me). Attached photos: I took the first two on Sunday as we traveled toward Tallahassee in the motor home. You'll get a kick out of the first one, in which her tongue is up over her nose.... the second one shows the conviviality between the two dogs. I took the last two just a few minutes ago in our dining room. More later, Nancy

Sadie(Prissy) and Shadow

Carol, I cannot begin to tell you how much Sadie(Prissy) has come to mean to us in such a short time. She is such a little blessing to us. Fits right in with our family. Shadow our existing cocker and Sadie are fast becomming buddies, Sadie is teaching him how to more social around other people. We are planning her first boat trip next weekend, I'll be sure to send you some pictures. As I told you last night we have taken Sadie to one of our local dog parks, where they also have agility set up. Sadie is a natural. Carol Thank-You for doing all that you do, you have not only made a difference in the dogs you save, nurture and love but you make a diiference in the lives of the people who are blessed to have one of your beauties in their lives.

Sammy and Sadie

Hi Carol and Nancy, Attached is a picture of my husband with Sammy and Sadie while we were on vacation. We adopted the black dog, Sadie, from you in 2002. Thanks again for all that you do. Karen Peterson13930 Lamont DrOrlando, FL 32832

Christmas Photo Penny & Jewell

Hi Carol, Here's a Christmas photo of Penny and Jewell wailing for Santa. Steve and KathyTremblay

Yogi Hi Carol, I wanted to give you an update on our wonderful Yogi. He is just the sweetest thing, and he has made the best addition to our family. He has been so good that we knew we could trust him right away to have full roam of the house without having a problem. He loves sleeping under our desk while we work on the computer, and he has become one of the more popular regulars at our dog park.

Bernie & Webster Dear Carol, Just wanted to give you a holiday update. The "boys" are still doing very well. Both Bernie and Webster are a joy. Everyone asks us how they get along, since they both were blind when we adopted them. As you can see from the pics, they know where the bed is, the futon is, where mommy and daddy are, where the food bowl is, and where the back door is. It also never deters them from wanting a good long walk! They are truly a joy, and we can never thank you enough!

Wally

Dear Carol, Well, Wally has been part of the DeLozier family for a week now and we all seem to be making the transition beautifully. Wally is such a sweet boy – but he was a bit freaked out by a jack-o-lantern pumpkin which he had not noticed on one of our previous walks around the block... (I told him he was OK, and the pumpkin would leave him alone, but these dogs have their own ideas...) My neighborhood is big on outdoor Christmas décor, so Wally and I will undoubtedly make lots of trips around the block to inspect the changing landscape in the coming weeks. Our cat, Simba, and Wally have blended well and, like brother and sisters do, they squabble over who gets possession of my lap when I am trying to read the paper. Heaven forbid I sit by myself! The photo attached was taken the day after Wally came to live with us – and you can tell he and cat are already not bothered by one another. Thank you for all you do for all of the animals, and especially for helping Wally become part of our family. Take care- Kathy DeLozier
