Dixie
August 29, 2016

On August 29, 2016, we bid farewell to 15 year old Dixie. She was not only a pure bred Cocker Spaniel who spent her first few years living in a cage as a breeder dog in Louisiana....she also went through the trauma of Hurricane Katrina.

Cocker Spaniel Rescue of East Texas volunteered to take in Katrina refugees.

When she arrived in Houston, we became her foster parents.

She was a gorgeous little red spaniel. Many were interested in adopting her, but the trauma of being a breeder dog...and Katrina, caused her to not trust anyone. We decided to adopt this unadoptable dog.

Dixie mellowed with age, though never being able to relax.

About a year ago, she showed signs of dementia. This caused her to go back to her aggressive tendencies of 10 years ago. After a sedative was given, we held her and told her what a good girl she was ...and walked her to the Rainbow Bridge...all in the comfort of her forever home.
