|We had a beautiful English setter, named Jennifer, for 15 years.
After she went to the bridge, we adopted B'lue (5) and then
Bogey (1). We were happy and very satisfied with 2 setters.
Then there was an e-mail to the group about a brother and sister
in a shelter in James NY. They were thought to be 15. All I could
think of was our Jennifer in a shelter, it was tearing me up. So
after 3 days, I got up my nerve to tell my husband I wanted to
rescue them and he said, “Let’s go get them!” Ike and Ida were
so happy to be out of that shelter! They were happy to be with
us but you could tell their hearts had been broken, we're
convinced they would not have survived much longer in the
shelter. Seniors have a quiet dignity about them and are just
|grateful for a place to live and their food. Unfortunately, we only
had Ike for 15 months before he went to the bridge, but he was
loved and he was very happy here. We just adopted Bogie; a
10 year old male whose owner had medical problems and had to
10 Yrs Young
|move to assisted living and could not take Bogie with him. While Bogie is confused, he is very happy to be here and I
expect he’ll settle in nicely. We’re always going to have senior setters, we love them and they need us!........Lee Arndt"
