GeorgieCarol: We are thrilled with our new boy. He and Bella are getting along fine after a few initial growls. He has been put on doxycycline in addition to his heartgard and the cyclosporine eye drops were increased to twice daily. No heart murmur or congestion. He is active and the most lovable dog we've had. The vet was expecting a snappy, grouchy dog when they saw 'senior cocker' on the list. They were pleasantly surprised. Our neighbors love seeing him out and about. He just about cutes people to death. And our unexpected bonus is that our bulldog has mellowed around other dogs as well . Thank you so much Eileen Burnham
HersheyHi Carol, Hershey has found his home. Sitting by the pool with his brother Riley. Let me know when you need help with adoptions. Doreen
HersheyIt has not been two months since we adopted Hershey. He loves playing in the backyard, riding in the car and especially going to the doggie park where he has met many friends. We are very fortunate to have found him because he lights up our lives. Hopefully in the future we can adopt a friend for him. Thank you all at Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue for all that you do and God Bless.

BirdieCarol, Wanted to let you know how much we love Birdie and how well he is adjusting. As you can see, he still loves his squeaky tennis balls but he doesn't constantly carry it around finally! He loves his long walks and playing catch with his Dad. He went to the local dog park for the first time yesterday and made a lot of new friends. He had a little stomach problem at first but after a couple of weeks on rice and chicken, he is really doing well. Not quite the chow hound that Bunker was but is eating well. Think he might be a gourmet - he likes grilled salmon and avocado. He is such a sweetie and loves affection and to be brushed. I can't tell you how much he has warmed our hearts and become part of the family so quickly. Thanks for all you do! Mary and Dennis Byrd and Birdie too
BaileyHi Carol, It's been a little over a month since we adopted Bailey and we couldn't be happier! He has quite the personality and loves his toys, his daily walks and snacks! Thanks again for helping us find this "perfect" addition to our family!
Chocolate KeeperLove of my life and soul mate!! I have a fetish for tri's, that is true!! But traveling the distance to Florida to meet and adopt my chocolate Keeper from Florida Cocker Spaniel Rescue was a true blessing! He sleeps with his head on the pillow next to me at night and periodically gives me chocolate kisses while he wraps his arm around mine! [Love of my life and soul mate!!

Buttercup and JinglesHi there! Just wanted to give you an update on one of my babies, Buttercup (formerly known as Jingles). Since she had joined the household in July 2013 she has made herself right at home. She is a super snuggler and so very sweet. Buttercup loves to play with rope toys and chew bones and once in a while she will share with her big brother, Beamer. Here are a couple of pictures of her now. Thanks for leading me to my little angel girl! Leslie Ambs.
HersheyHershey is doing well. He hasn't lost any weight, I think he has gained weight because he is muscling up. We go for 2 mile walks every morning and shorter walks during the day and evening due to the temps. If temps allow he goes for another 1-2 miles at night. We went for a 3 mile walk this morning. He loves watching birds. They fascinate him. He always thinks he can catch them. He's a very happy boy. He has the sweetest personality and all my friends love him. When I told my husband he was tethered outside he said Hershey has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse. My groomer said he's living in the Taj Mahal! She also said he's a big flirt. Life is very good with my big boy!!! Thanks for letting me adopt him. Renee
BaileyI thought I'd send this to you. Bailey has a very nice bed; however, he prefers sleeping on a tempurpedic! He is doing great and we couldn't be happier! Lisa
Josua and ZekeHello Carol, In June of 2004 my husband and I adopted 2 cocker boys from Florida Cocker Rescue. Joshua, a 12 month old black & white party spaniel and Zeke, a beautiful solid black 6 month old puppy, you knew him as Phoenix. They have been treasured members of our family and have given us many years of unconditional love and puppy kisses. I wanted to let you know that our dear Zeke passed away on Monday, and to thank you for bringing these wonderful boys into our lives. Joshua continues to do well, is almost 11 1/2, but does experience the ailments common to senior puppy dogs. Again, I wanted to say thank you so much for your hard work and sacrifice to help cockers enjoy the lives that they deserve, and the joy they bring to their forever families. Kindest Regards, Mark & Lori Holifer Dad and Mom to Josh & Zeke
Walley and BosleyHi Karena. Wanted to share this pic of Walley and Bosley. I think it is so cute! Love my old men
LolaHi Carol, Just a note to tell you how wonderful Lola is. She has settled in quite fast and is becoming a loveable little angel although sometimes she really tests me! She's a great eater and has gained 2 lbs in 2 weeks. She worships Lexie, my other cocker and follows her everywhere. We're still having some potty issues but I'm confident that she'll figure it all out before too long. Thank you so much for the opportunity to adopt her. I just love her to death. Suzan Weis
Ranger and ShadowRanger and Shadow after grooming! We have loved every day since the joined us the summer of 2008. Thank you Carol!
DallasDallas is doing much much better on the Hill's dry food mixed with Hill's wet food. He eats all his breakfast and dinner. (Plus his other treats in between) I can tell he feels so relaxed in his new home now. Went out yesterday for 3 hours and when I got home he was sound asleep under the table. I keep a radio playing on the table for him when I have to leave the house. He is such a good boy and good watchdog. Taking him to Pet Supermarket on Wed. for a harness just for training him to walk on a leash. The technician suggested it after I told her how strong he was. She took him to next room to get his stitches out and that is when she knew what I meant. (He was running her) My son has been buying the mini milkbones for his cocker and they are great for training and also to keep their weight down. I have bought some too and Dallas loves them. Had to break the small ones in half before. His cocker is 4 1/2 yrs and is meeting with Dallas today. A female. Good luck on your adoptions today. The Setzers called me late last night to tell me they are adopting Max Bleu today. Bunny as I have always known her was so excited. We both worked at the same school years ago. A very nice couple. Have a great week! Ellen
DreyfusHi Carol, just wanted to let you know Dreyfus is still great in his forever home. he has been the best guy we ever had. He is so spoiled sleeps anywhere he wants but the bed is his favorite. he is 10 now and it has been 6yrs since we got him from you. Thanks we LOVE him Tom
Joe CockerJoe Cocker (aka Snicker doodle) here. I love my forever home at Jewell is wonderful! She was a little standoffish at first but she warmed up to my personality. But He took care of Jewell does too. He took care of her breathing problem and her itchy ears. Dr Meyer works for Pet Smart. He and his entire staff are great. They always pet us and talk to us and scratches our butts.
MillieThis is Millie (AKA Goldie during her time at FCSR). I've had her for 4 and a half years. She was 7 or 8 when I adopted her in January 2010, so she's a senior citizen, and the light of my life. What a great dog! Sharon Lynn
LolaHi Carol, Just a note to tell you how good Lola is doing. She worships my other dog, Lexie, and follows her everywhere. I'm glad they have each other. She had a pretty bad cough which my vet thought might be an infection but now says it was probably from the breathing tube she had during surgery. She's much better. Still just a waif but eats everything in sight! I think she's very happy. She's a little shy when meeting new people and seems to be quite fearful of loud noise but we're working on it. She's a beautiful little girl and I'm so grateful to have her. Thank you!
