Meg is an English Working Cocker Spaniel who will be 10 years old in October 2021, and as you can see from her pictures is absolutely adorable; she simply loves life and everyone she meets.
In July 2020 in the midst of the pandemic Meg's owners sadly found themselves in a position of having to make the heartbreaking decision to find her a new home, (she has always been a very much loved dog) and after much discussion they approached CAESSR for help.
Meg has been a working gun dog for most of her life and obviously needed someone who could allow her to continue to enjoy a life where she could express her natural instincts and training, (without the actual gunwork etc.) John spoke to one of our long-term fosterers was very happy to have her come to live with her. She was taken directly to her new home by her owner (COVID precautions adhered to) and settled in almost immediately; welcomed by the resident cat, (It was quite comical as she hadn't actually met a cat before so she just sat down until he touched her nose and sat down with her, they now sleep together).
Meg has become very well known in the village where she now lives and is always much admired by all who meet her, she is so friendly and loving to everyone. Her nick-name is 'Zebedee-on-speed', she is great jumper!....those of a certain age will no doubt know to whom I refer.
Sadly in early July 2021 Meg developed, very quickly, three mammary tumors and after examination she had major surgery to remove them along with the removal of her ovaries. Meg has recovered very quickly from the surgery and now back to her bouncy, full of fun self. No one every believes that she is 9 years old.) But, there has to be a but, unfortunately the histology examinations revealed that the tumours were malignant which means that on-going veterinary care in the form of regular scans etc. are going to be an essential part of her care.
As you can see from her photographs, Meg is a wonderful, lively and loving dog with a real zest for life and it would be a real gift to her if there is anyone out there who is able to contribute to her ongoing veterinary costs.
