In March '06, we found ourselves fortunate to work with Toni Webb to match up 2 English Toy Spaniels she was fostering after they were liberated from the horrible Missouri Puppy Mills. Despite their sad beginnings, these two boys retained the loving nature of ETS and bravely faced their new unknown life outside the Mill. How were they to know what wonders awaited them in Napa, California!
I'd been contacted by Renee & Ron who were looking for a rescue ETS after they had lost their own special Blenheim boy they had found on the road in Napa and treasured for 2 years that they all lived together! Toni desribed the two Boys she had at that time as incredibly sweet for all their awful years in the mills - the result of that was still very apparent in the condition of their coats if not their hearts! Renee & Ron sent Toni their application and our club President Bill Abbott made the required home visit, which he desribed as ETS/Dog Heaven! After they were approved by Toni, the great homecoming was arranged! Although Renee & Ron were more than willing to drive to Georgia to pick the Boys up, it turned out Toni would be able to put them on a plane from Texas - a short trip to Napa for these 2 guys! Winston, a tricolour boy is 5yrs old and Churchill, a blenheim boy, is also 5yrs old - they had hit their jackpot to be adopted together into this loving home!
Doggie Update from Napa - May 17, 2006!
"Just a short note to tell you how happy we all are. The Boys have adjusted rapidly to their new home, almost from the time they got out of the crate at the airport, they seemed to know that they were in good hands. We walked them around a bit before leaving the airport, got in their crate in the car and they were asleep most of the way home. When we arrived at our home, they checked out every nook and cranny (not kidding) and decided right away that the couch was home base. We have two doggy beds in the family room, but they still like sleeping together, all snuggled up. They have both put on some weight and look really good. Their coats are now beginning to get long and full. Churchill has really started to get assertive, "demanding" attention and now rolls over on his back waiting to get his tummy rubbed. Winston did that about a week after he arrived. When we come home they get as excited as we are to see them.
As of June 30th the latest sleeping arrangment is they've now moved into our bedroom - into our bed to be exact! We couldn't be happier!"
A true happy ending and a humble tribute to the loving nature of our English Toy Spaniels!
