Arrival Story:
Rescued from Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center when he was 5 years old, just recovering from kennel cough and heartworm.

Barney was our very special cocker spaniel boy. He went to the Rainbow Bridge on July 16, 2005 after collapsing with presumed heart/respiratory failure. He was abandoned in Maryland when he was , after being kept outside on a chain by his previous humans. When Rescue pulled him from the shelter there, he had heartworm, kennel cough, was malnourished, and had a collapsing trachea from hitting the end of a chain so many times. His foster mom nursed him back to health in Ohio, and we found him through the CSAC website. He came to live with us in October, 1999. At first, he struggled with separation anxiety, and we finally put him in doggie day care, which helped enormously by keeping him busy during the work day and socializing him with other people and dogs. Barney gained a sister, Mynka, in 2001, and they have always gotten along just like littermates. Barney had been through 2 ACL surgeries to repair torn ligaments, and suffered from congestive heart failure and pulmonary hypertension, as well as arthritis. He still enjoyed life, though, right until the end.
