Yes, We Got A New Buddy

I said to myself that I would wait before at least until spring until we got a new dog. After Spot died the house was really empty. However the house was also cleaner and a lot quieter. Then my son had us take care of his bulldog for a few days and I was hooked.
My wife and I visited the local shelter and they had just the right dog. A Field Springer Spaniel who is gun shy. In fact he is shy of most things but not people. We named him Cromwell after Oliver Cromwell and there will be an explanation of that on our web page soon. Cromwell is the perfect dog for us, a pacifist who just did not cut it with the gun scene. He was trained to hunt and travels very well. We look forward to taking him with us on all our trips.

He's wonderful - looks like he loves to have something in his mouth all the time I'm glad you found a new pal, and I'm glad he found you!

What a great looking dog. I'm so glad you rescued one from the shelter. We have a shelter rescue and he is the greatest.

Great looking pooch!

Hope you have many happy years with him. We did a shelter rescue about 3 years ago. Wasn't looking for a dog at all but the wifey saw it and brought her home. Very skittish at first....a beagle/jack russel mix....But great now.

Talk about crazy................... !!!

A great way to show your love for your Spot by bringing home a dog who was homeless and can help to fill the void he left in a different way than Spot did. That looks like one very happy dog to me. Must be the Airstream - it realizes there are little miracles even in dogs lives. Congratulations.

Yeah! New dog! Our Cady was taken to the local shelter for being gun shy as well. The previous owner put a lot of money into her training, he just forgot to train her around loud noises.

Glad Cromwell found a loving peaceful home to call his own.

Happy puppy!

Congratulations, and so glad you gave a loving home to a shelter dog. Bet you can't wait until Cromwell's first trip with Chummy!
