  • We got Boone from MAESSR when he was 6 years old. He was not dog-friendly and not good with young children, which presented some problems for us.  However, he loved us unconditionally,and he deserved the same from us. We introduced him to swimming.  He was hesitant at first, but he quickly became a water dog.  He loved car rides and just being with his people. We lost Boone very suddenly and unexpectedly on Sept. 11,2018 due to a bleeding tumor in his spleen. It was one month shy of his 13th birthday. He was great up until that last morning.There is a huge hole in our hearts that will never be filled. Even if we get another dog, there will never be another Boone.

Cayenne's Story . . .

Original:  “A Happy Thanksgiving to this special girl and her family.”

Beautiful Cayenne was given to MAESSR when she and the very old Springer lady in her Maryland home began to have more serious disagreements, possibly because the senior was not able to interpret Cayenne’s signals due to her deafness.  But, family canine dynamics changed with the elderly dog's passing, and Cayenne was able to return to her home, no longer needing MAESSR’s help.
