Meet Diva….

by jewelryelegance on December 24, 2008

Diva is now 7 years old, Parti Color Cocker Spaniel, she came to live with us, December 24th 2005.

We had lost our wonderful dog Muchka, a 17 year old Norwegian Elk Hound to old age, the week after Thanksgiving. I consulted our families and everyone thought this would be a perfect Christmas gift for my husband, or so I thought.

When I brought her home Christmas Eve I never expected his reaction,” take her back”. It’s too soon! We didn’t speak for days…No, I didn’t return her, my husband needed Diva as much as I need her, and as much as Diva needed to find a forever home. Paul was quite ill and would be confined to the house for the next 4½ months, he needed company, he needed a companion, I was working full time.

Diva was a rescue, and had been returned to the cocker rescue group on more than one occasion, because she piddled. She stopped the piddling shortly after she arrived, she just needed the love, and a caring home. My husband spoils her horribly, but who cares, she has been the light of our life, and a true loving companion.

Oh how sweet she is! I have 4 rescue dogs (after having lost 3 dogs in the last year) and they are the best! So glad she is now a full time member of your family!

She’s a lovely dog! Thank you for taking her in and sticking with that decision. The world needs more people like you. Hugs… 🙂

Our dogs are our family! To lose one…well there is no replacement. But to gain another family member is a gift beyond words! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
