Casey was the sweetest girl ever. Cockers have a tendency to be a bit hyper but she was always very mellow and loved to be around people. She would kiss you and wait for pets and hugs every time. We always used to call her our watch dog because she would "watch" you come in and then act like she had done her job. We got her through a Cocker Rescue of South Jersey. Her and her siblings were part of a "parti of five" group of puppies, whose parents had been given up before the birth. When we picked her out, I held her up to my face and asked if she wanted to come home with us. She licked my face and we fell in love. |
Over the years, she has certainly been a handful. A swallowed marble here, eating a pound of chocolate there - you name it, she did it. Her chart at the vet was ridiculously large, due to her adventures. But we always just loved her. She was a comfort and a constant source of joy for us. She had to be sitting right next to you at ALL times. She loved peanut butter and would wait for her bone at night after her last walk. She snored like no one's business, rolled around on my mom's bed in the morning and would always accept her job of the day of keeping out the squirrels.
In the last few months, she was starting to decline and a last bout of not feeling real well took a lot out of her. We decided to put her down this past Monday 9/28/09. And we've been lost ever since. We loved our girl so much and keep looking for her to be here. We know that one day, we'll see her again. She'll be waiting for us at Rainbow Bridge, along with our Lady, who is already there and greeted her. And when we see her, she'll come running to give us puppy kisses and ask where we've been, that she's been waiting for us to get here.
