Cecil has gone to his new home



Cathy and Judy left with Cecil yesterday. What truly remarkable people. Cecil couldn't be in better hands.

They didn't end up making it Friday night---the poor ladies left NJ to head to Easton and the directions they printed were for Easton PA not Easton Maryland...their 3 hour drive was over 7...urgh...

Anyway, they ended up arriving in Easton late Friday night and stayed at a nearby hotel. They came around 10am Saturday morning and I'll tell you that it was love at first sight. I've never seen Cecil behave like that..it was like he was saying "I've been waiting for you for so long!" What a wonderful thing it was and it made it so easy for Steve and I to say goodbye because it was so clear that Cecil wanted to be with them. God found these women for him, no doubt about it. He jumped around and gave her sweet kisses and when she turned her attention momentarily to Finnegan, he got in front of her and pawed at her as if to say..."you are here for ME!"


Here is a nice video!


They brought three big bags of toys and snacks for our boys and they are rummaging through them as we speak...it's like Christmas around here!!!

When they left, Cecil was ready to go. Cathy climbed in the bacseat so she could sit with him and Steve [icked Cecil up to put him in and Cecil cried..he wanted to get to her...that was all he was focused on. He loves her already it was so clear. Just divine.

I've spoken to her today and she said he slept in bed with her last night and woke her up this morning to go outside. He has eaten well and is getting the hang of where things are at her house including his ramp up to the bed! She has an appointment for him on Monday at 6pm to see the eye specialist up there and a friend of mine whose dogs where seen by the same vet is going to meet her there kind of to be an ambassador! How nice!

We will miss that baby and his wonderful, gentle soul but I couldn't be happier for him...what a perfect family for him...what a gloriuous existance he will have...how thankful I am for this for him....and for all of you...thank you all so much for the love and support..for all the wonderul emails, and cards and for donating to make all this happen for him...we can all rest well at night knowing that we made a differnce...a BIG difference in this one boy's life and he, like myself are so very grateful to each of you.

We are all so happy for him! We are all tears at the moment - tears of joy that his operation went well and that he has found a truly loving home. You can't ask for anything more!

We sent a card but we aren't sure it made it over the big pee in time - please forward it on for us. We hope his new family let him use the internet and we can hear more about his new life - Lots of licks

Awwww. What a sweetpea. I can hardly type with my tears. What a wonderful post, the video was a joy to watch. Isn't if fabulous for little Cecil that he's found Cathy and Judith. And that in a teeny tiny way we were able to help. We're very grateful to you too for making all this possible for him. It's made our day to see Cecil so loved and happy.

Wiry love and kisses to you all Eric + B xxx

Pee S. I sent a special card but fear it may get there to late. Shall I send another to their home if you are able to email me the address?

Moma is beyond leaking. She is sobbing. What a happy ending to your time with Cecil. You have been angels to this foxy boy, and have passed him to the hands of two gifts from heaven. While i (Jake) didn't have the same medical issues as Cecil, the description (and video) of him meeting his new family reminded Moma so much of our experience when I met my furever family, that it brought back the flood of emotions. What a happy happy day. What a wonderful life to look forward to. A life of love. Forever.

Moma is so slow. She is making a card for Cecil, but obviously didn't get it done to send in time for his family's arrival. Should she still send it to you, or is there another address where it can go?

Will Cecil blog???? We hope so. We want to know how this very special doggie is doing.

With so much love,
Jake and Fergi and MomaSally
