View Full Version : staffordshire newbie....

1st January 2009, 06:49 PM
Hi everyone, my name is Manda and i live in staffordshire,uk. I'm currently owned by 2 cocker spaniels called Marley(3yrs) and Gracie(approx 8yrs). They are both from rescue and a joy to have. Gracie has issues as she is an ex-breeder but we are taking baby steps and in the 3 months that she has been with us she has gone from not even knowing what a treat or toy is to going slowly to the tub and picking a toy to take to bed. she doesn't quite know what to do with it yet but has a little chew on it. Marley is my cuddle monster, he is very playful but can also snooze the day away. I guess you're wondering why a cocker owner is on the cav forum:rolleyes: well i would truelly love to give a cav a home, Marley would love a friend to play with as Gracie doesn't want to know and i can't think of any other i would want. I am also willing to help out with rescue too so please get in touch if i can help in anyway from transport to fostering, i have fostered short-term for another rescue and done transport for them, i think it will give me the opportunity to meet lots of fur babies and help them too, what more could i ask for :-p
:w*w: thats a long post:rotfl:

Welcome to the forum! :) You might be interested in helping out the Spaniel Trust; a few members are on the board and they sometimes need foster and transport help and have dogs for rehoming.

HI Manda and welcome to the forum :D

You have a PM :thmbsup:

Look forward to hearing more about your Cockers - esp :snap:, I love Cockers but my first love is Cavaliers.

For anyone else reading this who might also be interested in helping the Spaniel Trust - who rehabilitate and rehome all breeds of Spaniel - this is their website http://www.spanieltrust.com/

and their forum

Hi Manda

And very wellcome to our forum ,is it me but when I saw the first word of your thread starter post " Staffordshire " my first thought was of the dog breed and not your location.
