Smokey came into BSR's care, having been labeled a ruthless predator of chickens and rabbits that invaded his yard. Once in care, though, Smokey revealed himself to be a real sweetheart and certainly did not live up to his billing! He fit in well with his doggie pack, obeyed and respected the resident cat, and generally relished the attention and love he was receiving. And, he LOVED the water! When looking for his forever home, Smokey just needed more of the same...love, attention, and a good swim every now and then!

Dear Boykin Spaniel Rescue,
Thank you very much for your Happy Gotcha Day card. It was very thoughtful.
We have attached pictures of Smokey (now known as Sparky) that we took for John and Nancy Hodges to celebrate the second anniversary of his arrival. He is thriving and happy and, well, very "sparky." He is thrilled to see the arrival of spring and is enjoying long walks in the country. Swimming is still one of his favorite pursuits whether in the bay or in the pool. As long as his towel is nearby!
He delights us every day especially during these challenging times. Thank you again for helping to bring Sparky into our lives.
