Thumbs up Rescued Casey in SC

Hi Everyone...

I'm Joyce (Dr. B to some ) and I'm the lucky lady who was blessed to have Casey come to live with me. Remember Casey that Amanda was writing about? That's my Casey. Amanda did a great job fostering him and that has made Casey's adjustment so much easier. Thank you, Amanda!

I'm late letting all of you know where Casey is and how he's doing because it took awhile to get rights on this site and because 9 days after I received Casey, my amazing dog, Spencer, died and I was a mess. He was 17 and gave me unconditional love for all those years. He also was super help with Casey. They took to each other immediately. Casey followed Spencer all over the place and old, patient Spencer showed the little dude how things are done in our house. It was so fun to watch...and that 9 days of dog-to-dog instruction has made my job with Casey so much easier. Spencer was a trooper and quite active right to the end.

Casey has gone everywhere with me since he arrived...even a 6 hour trip to TN to see my sisters the day after Spencer died. He was wonderful through it all. My sisters have two cats and Casey got along well with both of them...and my sisters, too. He seems to be one very smart pup. He has only had two mistakes in the house since he arrived on August 31st (hallelujah!), has learned to sit and stay, plays with me and his toys, walks proudly on lead, gives me his paw, covers me with kisses and runs like a hellion throughout the house. The only thing he doesn't do quite yet is come all the way up to me when I say 'come'. He'll come but stops about three feet from me unless I'm holding a treat. Then he's right there! He also still has issues with other people but I can see that he'll progress in that department, too, with more exposure and lots of patience on my part.

I'm blessed to have this bundle of joy and I'm grateful to Amanda for being so instrumental in my getting him and for fostering him so well. In a way I'm grateful to the couple who surrendered Casey to the Havanese Rescue group, too. If they hadn't done the right thing by him, he wouldn't be sleeping in one of his beds at my feet as I type this. I'll keep you posted on his progress as we tackle his socialization issues.

Joyce, welcome to you and Casey!! Though Casey has been a forum member for a while now, it's nice to see his new mommy join us. He sounds like a wonderful addition to your family. I am so very sorry to hear about you losing your dear Spencer. 17 years is a long time and I'm sure you have many, many happy shared moments with him over the years.

I'm looking forward to getting to you know you and little Casey better. If you have questions about the forum, pls. ask away.

Thanks for your welcome to me and for your nice words about my loss of Spencer. Casey hasn't let me do too much thinking about it, though. He's a cutie for sure. But, don't let that pretty face fool you. Right beneath it lies a devilish streak that keeps me laughing and moving! I'll be sure to keep you posted on how he does.

Welcome! Casey is a cutie pie. What a great dog Spencer was in teaching Casey the ropes. Love to hear stories like that.

This just put a huge smile on my face Dr. B is beyond the perfect forever mama for Casey. Anyone who is thinking about fostering, I just have to say the feeling you get when you can honestly say your foster pup is in the best possible home is so heart warming. I am so happy you made it here too!

Welcome Joyce!

I'm so sorry to read of your loss of your beloved Spencer....but also so thrilled that you adopted that cutie Amanda had! Casey was such a cutie in pictures that I knew someone very special would get to love on him for many years to come! Congrats to you both.....sounds like you complete each other!
