I thought it might be fun to start a then and now thread.

Abby was so tiny, under 4 lbs!
Her first day home
Image
This pic was taken close to 2 weeks after I got her.
Image
Abby sleeping with her first toy...a tiny lamb. This was pic was taken just days after I brought her home.
Image

and NOW, still as pretty as ever!

Ava didn't come to live with me until she was close to 7 months old. I have a couple pics from the breeder when she was a baby. The breeder then decided to keep her until the underbite appeared. I'm so happy that underbite made its debut :evil

Image
Ava was very young in the next pic.
Image
And she became my baby girl, probably 1st night. Boy oh boy did she ever have some eyebrows! :gig
Image

and NOW

This is Angel the first day we saw her at the shelter (April 4, 2009) at approx 4 months of age...it was love at first sight for me...I actually gasped when they brought her in the room...

This was the day we first saw Ginger at the shelter (May 2007)....ears matted and the ends hard as rocks, scabs covering her entire back where they had pulled ticks off of her...and she had just recently had a litter of puppies...she is approx 4 yrs of age here...
Image

this was the day we brought her home..the shelter had her shaved down...

Thank you, but lets face it. They are all adorable. What cocker isn't?

Hobbes is so cute. He's one of my fav forum guys.

Donna, I can see why you fell in love with Angel simply with a pic. All 3 of your girls are pretty. I love "Ying and Yang". I've mentioned before I call my girls Laverne and Shirley and would so have named them just that, had I known Ava would be coming to live with me.

Let's keep those then and now pics coming. I need my puppy fix :gig

Here is a collage of Rudy's baby pictures from birth to 8 weeks when we brought him home December 2009.
Image

Then Rudy at 5 months with his brother Henry.
Image

Then Rudy today, at 3 years old!
Image

Here is Henry the day we got him in April 2003. I was a young girl and he was my first dog! :sml
Image

Now Henry today, and he's turning 10 years old tomorrow! Crazy! He looks great to be ten, I think.
Image


Here is Diesel - Rudy and Henry's Cousin - the day he came home September 2010. We love him like our own!!!
Image

At 8 Months, Dies was a little large! :lol
Image

At 1 year old!

Rudy and Diesel Today, at 2!

All picture captions are L to R for photos

Rocky: Humane Society Photo, Cuddling at home, Now. We kept his name from rescue. He came home 6/26/09. He will be 7 this year. His nickname is "Biggin" He is our "Moose" and is our biggest cocker spaniel. He really has the ultimate cocker disposition and is the most mellow and laid back dog I have ever seen. He lets babys crawl on him, and has not met a stranger yet.
/Image

Sadie: The day we brought her home from rescue, Cutie Pie with her bows, now looking a bit scruffy. She came to us as Tammy but got changed to Sadie. She came home with us on 7/20/2009. She will be 10 this year. Her nickname is "Momma" Sadie came to us through WI Cocker Rescue and we are forever grateful to them. Sadie is the momma of the pack and all the other dogs listen to her and she trained them all how to be good mannered doggies.
Image

Logrey: The day we brought him home, All cleaned up, This Christmas in serious need of a hair cut. Little did we know when we brought him home we were getting a special needs puppy, but he has been worth it. He came to us as Gumdrop and we changed it to Logrey. We try to make his life happy, knowing what we know now he would have probably been put down at the rescue due to his partial paralyzed back legs. :( His nickname is "Little Man" He came home with us on 12/31/2010. He is about 5 years old now. He came to us from Eye on the Sparrow Rescue.
Image

Crickette: Riding home on Daddies lap, prettied up with her bows, now with all her favorite things. She was originally named Joy but given that she jumped at every little movement and sound we renamed her Crickette and it fits her well. Her nickname is "Pretty Girl" She came home with us on 1/1/2011. She is now 3 years old. She came to us through IN Cocker Rescue and we are so very happy we took the five hour drive over to see her.
Image

Xander: We went to get Crickette and got a call to help with a transport, and our friend Donna, with Heart to Heart out of Chicago, found a special dog at the shelter which reminded her of our puppy that had to be put down. On a whim we said we would take a look and ended up coming home with two new puppers instead of one. Little did we know how sick our new guy was. He had MRSA as part of an URI, and ended up having to go to the vet and get an MRI and a sinus cleanout. Our "free" puppy ended up costing us 2000$ but he has been worth each and every penny. He came to us with no name, his papers said C. Spaniel as his name. We named him after one of our favorite books, so his full name is Zeddicus Zul Zorander, or Xander for short. :D His nickname is "Xander Man" He came home with us on 1/1/2011. He is about five years old now.
Image

Sarah: At 10 weeks when we brought her home, growing up, and now. She is the little devil who completed our pack and our family. She was the little chocolate cocker we waited a year to find. She has brightened our lives and makes us laugh every day. She is our "goober" and "baybee". Her main nickname is "Little One" or "Goober" Sarah was born 11/1/2011. She just turned 1 years old. Sarah is the only dog who makes me guilty as she was "rescued" from the pet store because we could not find a young chocolate female in the year we spent looking.
