I do the blog for camp cocker in CA and I also call the shelters to check on cockers who have just arrived. I checked on this one today, the owners turned him in because he has prostate cancer, a ruptured pelvic ligament and a pelvic hernia!! :bang :bang :bang I am just so ticked off, is this what dogs deserve after all they give to us?? I just do not get people.

Both cases are so sad.

Our permanent foster girl, Buffie, was dumped at age 12. She was taken into Rescue and we gave her a happy home for the last 10.5 months of her life. In return, she gave us lots of love and laughs. Now Buffie's ashes are resting on our mantle with our other Cockers ashes. We got so attached to her in that short time. I can't imagine how anyone could just dump their dog because it was old or sickly. :bang

Doreen, I know what you mean. That baby looks so sweet and you can see the love in his eyes. I can't believe his family gave up on him so quickly...

I also don't understand people who say their dog is too old... Isn't it when you get most attached to them and the bond gets stronger? :bang

We had another one who was nine who was turned in because the owner said she was "dull". Well that was probably the luckiest day of her life since she is now in a forever family who loves her to pieces !!

I just wish once, just once, we could treat people like they do the cockers and get away with it. I don't think I could ever work at a shelter and be on the intaking side of it - the things I would say to these people. :bang :bang :bang

The hardest part of doing rescue is letting them go..... :cry
