Welcome to Honeydew Lane's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Honeydew Lane
Honeydew came into my life November of 2008. I had learned having an animal reduces anxiety, high blood pressure, depression and that having an animal makes for a great companion. I knew I wanted a rescue because they were also rescuing me. I found a rescue near my home and got on their website. There was Honeydew 's picture and I couldn't wait to meet her. I called the rescue and found out she was still available. The day I arrived and met Honeydew I met a very sweet dog but I had my concerns, she had patches of hair missing on her chest and hind end, I was concerned about the mange. I ended up going home to think about rescuing her. I thought about it that evening, made some calls and then called the rescue and let them know I was going to be over after work to pick her up the next day. Turns out it wasn't the mange at all and 3-4 months out of a cage and she was able to grow all her coat back. I was later to discover that Honeydew had very bad allergies and her ears needed work. I had a great vet and we got the ears under control and I was led to the best dog allergist in our area and he had Honeydew turned around in no time. The rest was nine years of a lot love, walks, snuggles, grooms, trips and just day to day living with each other until it was her time to go. Honeydew made rescuing a dog for me a wonderful first time experience. I have since rescued my second cocker spaniel. Honeydew was such a warm, beautiful introduction to the breed I had to have another one. Honeydew will forever be cherished and loved and remembered. In her own way she taught me to be a truly selfless human being. I'm so thankful I went back the next day and got her, she was truly a blessing to my life.
