Picked up these 2 sweet girls today from breeder. They were for private sale and that's how they were obtained. Afraid they're typical releases with issues but with a sweet future ahead. Lucky Star,so wonderful,taking them in.

Cass-8 yrs.
They've begun the vetting process. I'm glad I'm able to visit with them as often as I want.
Took the liberty of giving them their temporary new names.:) Cass (for M.Carter's sig on Dog World) and Penny (for Penny Knowler)

I'm so flattered.
What great big scared eyes. I'm sure they will soon learn to trust people and relax a little.
I'm glad I'm the youngest one, although I'm not sure if that is true in real life. Penny is on holiday, I'll check when she gets back.

Rescue organisations do such a wonderful job, thanks to volunteers like you.

I hope they both end up in a comfortable, caring, home with loving owners to cherish them for the rest of their days.

Please let us know what happens to them.

Spent a while with Cass and Penny this morning and moved them for some recreation to a larger pen and sat with them in the pen. Penny hadn't peed or pooed since I got them yesterday at 7am but she managed to get that done in a big way in the larger area :rah:. They are darn cute. Let them lick peanut butter off my glove-at first they had to consider if they would accept the texture :) but then.... Both sparked up in the bigger area and personalities showing. Can hardly wait to get them out of isolation and scrub them as they need baths terribly but,in the meantime, they are accepting that we are OK. Was told they were kenneled together as retirees and ,if that's true, Cass definitely got most of the groceries. Right now, kenneled separate and Penny is gobbling her food-she's going to start getting 3 small meals a day for a little time. They're winning the hearts at the Vets-just what Cavaliers do. Tomorrow, if it's warm enough, I'll put them in an outside pen for a short time so they can see the outdoors. First introduction was sad-petrified of the space outside so am going to try this.

I am so looking forward to updates on these two girls, and especially look forward to seeing their happy faces when they have adjusted to their new lives. Bless you for all the care you're giving them; you're doing wonderful work. :lotsaluv:

Have to post this. Just got back from the 2 ,had them outside in pen and Penny slipped by me,at gate opening, and was on the run :eek:. We ran around the building one way and back and to east and to the west and started heading toward the river :bang:. I quick called Dr.Mike from his home and then Cass kept barking and Penny came back and finally got "trapped" between pen and building-Dr. Mike on one end and me on the other-and I got her by the scruff-my gosh, that's pure terror! This 10 yr.old can move. So scary to have a puppy mill dog get loose. She's feisty,fed her second meal and went in Clinic to lock up and she's barking for more food LOL. What an adventure!!!!!

Update on these 2 little ones

Hate pictures taken like this but only way they stand still :). Preliminary labs are negative :rah: and baths pretty soon. They really are taken with the :snap:-not shy at all. They are doing great on leash, keep their kennel clean and piddle the moment we go outside-good girls! Lovely personalities.
