LOL! I understand completely Auralie. Expressing my opinion, cocker spaniels
are a pain in the a$$!!!!!!! ;) We had them growing up and they are one of
the most HARD-HEADED dogs I've come across! I only drove 2 1/2 hours to pick
up Avery, and I don't think she's going to be with us forever. She just
doesn't seem to "fit" into our family like I need her to. I started this as
getting a companion for Vidalia, who really needs someone to play with.
Austin is getting old, and is really laid back anyway so his idea of play is
to swat at Vidalia for about 30 seconds and then go back inside.
Anyway-Avery is Heartworm positive and needs to be spayed so after we get
her all healthy, hopefully the rescue will find her a great forever home.
She's a GREAT dog, just not the one we were looking for ya know? I work with
Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue and they'll find her a great home I know. 

They have a little male in a shelter in Charleston that I've fallen in love
with, through just his picture and he may also be coming to stay with us. If
he and Vidalia get along (which Avery and Vidalia really do not) then he may
become a permanent fixture. :D

Thanks for your kind words!

Good for you for getting a foster dog for Christmas. I'm sure you will
have happy years with her.  I really believe that's the best way,
My oldest son flew from Seattle, Washington to Orlando, Florida to
pick up a dog that his wife wanted for Christmas.  How's that for 
devotion (or in my mind stupidity).  Of course since he is an employee
of Alaska Airlines he didn't have to pay airfare, but found the round-trip
exhausting since he had to make one leg of it on the flight deck and
couldn't sleep.  I do hope this cocker-spaniel puppy proves to be a
success with their other animals.
Needless to say, I'm only expressing my opinion here - not to them.

I confess I'm a tad jealous. Although, we actually got FLAKES last night in
Beaufort, SC!!! It was cool. I knew it wouldn't stick, but it sure looked
pretty coming down. But, supposed to be 68 on Saturday and I'm looking
forward to that too! LOL! Got a foster dog on Christmas Eve. Her name is
Avery, after a Christmas Elf. She is too cute, learning to play with my
Vidalia. Those of you on facebook can see a picture of Vidalia in her elf
suit for Christmas. LOL! It's hysterical!  I hope everyone had a fabulous
Christmas and will have a happy new year!!!!!!
