Be All You Can Be . .
-US Army Slogan
Sergeant Oliver is an energetic 2-3 year old who would love to "be all he can be" but is currently a wounded warrior. He wants so much to run and play but has recently spent much of his time in the infirmary.

Upon enlistment at the Cocker Inn, we observed something going on with his back leg. We tried physical therapy but when that failed, he was taken to an orthopedic specialty clinic where it was determined he had a fracture at the L7 sacral vertebrae. That injury has his sciatic nerve pinched which has resulted in atrophy in his right leg. When he walk he flips the foot under and walks on top of it. His spinal injury is causing him immense pain and we would love to help him get his life back. Surgery to correct the problem and eradicate the pain will cost around $4,000.

We have taken a leap of faith and scheduled surgery on Monday, December 22, so please consider a donation to help get this guy back in tip top shape. Please keep Sgt. Oliver in your prayers.


A PINK RIBBON for FITZ


Why does Fitz deserve a pink ribbon, the symbol for breast cancer? Because although he is a two year old male, he is suffering from breast cancer.

Fitz came from a hoarding situation so the first thing we did was neuter him. A few weeks later an alert volunteer noted he a small mass near one of his nipples. Surgery confirmed the diagnosis and the vet recommended a second surgery to "clear the margins." Even a second surgery did not get all the cancerous cells. Fitz's "angels" stepped in to help with the cost of chemotherapy and a third more invasive surgery. It will be sometime in January before this round of chemo is completed and the surgery is done.

Breast cancer in male dogs is unusual but we are optimistic Fitz can beat it and go on to the live a happy, long life. Please pray for Fitz and we will keep you posted on his progress.


WHY DID I DIE SO YOUNG?


Sassy Sue is the poster girl of Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas for spaying and neutering. Every year thousands of unwanted dogs are born and euthanized because negligent, ignorant, lazy or abusive people refuse to spay and neuter their pets. One walk through your local shelter highlights the plight of these unwanted and unplanned animals.

Another major consideration for spaying and neutering is the health of your pet. They live longer, healthier lives than their unaltered counterparts. The wanderlust in males is reduced and the elimination of a female in heat are positive reasons to spay and neuter.

Spaying prevents uterine infections and breast cancer which is fatal in 50% of females. Neutering helps prevent testicular cancer and lowers the rate of prostate cancer in males.

Sassy Sue was turned in to a local shelter by her owner. She came to CSRET with mammary tumors, a tumor on her rib, and tumors metastasized in her lungs & her lymph nodes. The vet was afraid to put her under for a biopsy. We made the decision to treat her symptoms and give her as much love and quality of life that we could. Sassy Sue's stay at the CockerInn lasted just five days. In those five short days, she had her picture taken with Santa, received love from many volunteers, and enjoyed exploring the yard with the other CockerKids before the cancer shut down her system. She was a sweet, happy girl that got along with everyone. When we accept a dog into our program we are committed to that dog to the best of our efforts. Sassy Sue was just 6 years old. She deserved to live her life cancer free. Spaying her while a pup could have prevented the pain she had to endure and her untimely death.

We have heard all the excuses,

  • I'm not doing that to my dog. Now really, do you think your pet knows the difference?
  • They will get lazy and fat. There is no statistical evidence to this argument.
  • I might want to have a litter. The shelters are full of animals that cannot be placed.
  • It's too much trouble. If you are this lazy why have a pet?
  • Cost. There are many low cost clinics and shelters that provide spays/neuters
Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas begs all pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. Please don't make them go through the pain Sassy Sue had to live with.
