November 14, 2015

For he has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden is face from him but has listened to his cry for help.
Psalm 22:24

Our beautiful Beaux (Prinz) crossed the Rainbow Bridge on November 14, 2015 following a sudden illness. We had just recently emailed his foster mom, Judi, to let her know how well Beaux was doing considering his multiple health issues.

Beaux rescued us in September of 2011 following the loss of our first Cocker Spaniel. At first sight, we knew Beaux was the dog for us and he wasted no time mending our broken hearts. After months of working on his separation anxiety, we decided the best way to combat the issue was to adopt CSRET alumni, Bentley. Despite their age difference, Beaux bonded with Bentley and the two became true companions.

Beaux had absolutely no interest in toys or balls, but constantly worked his charm when he knew there was a treat to be had. Though he did not like to be held, the day was not over until he received his nightly rub down. Beaux was always ready for a car ride and loved being outdoors where he could bask in the sun. According to his adoption and vet papers, it was estimated that Beaux was over ten years old. Despite his old age and his loss of hearing and vision in one eye, Beaux always impressed us with his fight to carry on.

We've gained such an overwhelming sense of gratitude for CSRET and those that work endlessly to rescue and protect such a wonderful breed. Cocker Spaniels are not for everyone and having one definitely comes with huge challenges, but our experience has been extremely rewarding. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be loved by such a sweet boy. We often wondered what Beaux's life was like before he came into ours. Whatever his circumstances were, I'm thankful they brought us together and I think we gave Beaux the wonderful life that I know he gave us.
