Dear Di,

When we got in touch with you about adopting a spaniel we had chosen a dog we thought might suit us. After our talk on the phone, you suggested another one who might suit us better - a smaller spaniel. And how right you were! From the moment Maisie ran into the house there has been not a moment's doubt that she is the one for us.

We gave her non-stop T.L.C. from the word go, and she has blossomed in every way. She is sociable with the dog walking fraternity and confident with other dogs. We let her off the lead and she runs freely on our daily walk, while never letting us out of her sight. She comes immediately if we call her. She is a delight. So thank you for suggesting Maisie. We could not have chosen a better dog. Quite a few people have asked us where we got her and have remarked what a good work you do at CAESSR. Someone called her the other day 'Happiness on four legs' and so she is!

With kind regards,

Joan and Tony


Hi there,

I thought you would like to see a photo of Cooper. We adopted a Border Collie at the same time and they are having great fun together. Rowan is shy, but Cooper is giving him courage and Rowan is teaching Cooper that it's not OK to bite. He has been biting us, but usually because he is over excited; there is no aggression. We have signed up for classes, which we are sure he will enjoy. His love of life is inspiring and helps us forgive the kitchen raids. Two eggs, three (human) biscuits, a new bag of treats and a courgette yesterday. We find things in the most surprising places! Things we thought were well out of reach. Now he can vault the (extra tall) stairgate...

We think of his former owner often, and are sure they miss each other.

Kind regards
