For the LOVE of Clayton

John and I LOVE English Springer Spaniels and have been involved with the ESRA [English Springer Rescue America] for quite a few years now.  We recently saw a post on facebook about a springer in San Angelo that needed critical care.  He was flown to Dallas by Pilots N Paws and RUSHED to Center for Veterinary Specialty Care where Dr. Lisa Thompson began bringing LIFE to his weak little body.

We have been so moved by this little guy’s story, we just HAD to go see him.

When we arrived, he already had a couple of visitors, so we waited with great anticipation on the lobby.
Upon him seeing us, his little tail began to wag briefly, and he attempted to lift his paw into my hand.

He is still pretty weak but is making AMAZING progress.  He actually wagged his little tail twice while we were there.

Dr. Lisa Thompson promised to post his progress on facebook, so HERE is a recent picture of Clayton where he looks a little more lively.

  1. This last picture of him is amazing. He looks SO much better…although I know his fever is back…I’m really rooting for the little buddy. I appreciate everyone in Texas who is taking good care of him and loving him. I don’t want to know anything of his past…only his future life in a loving, caring home. I adopted a Springer after my other one took to “riding the wind”. I live in CA but appreciate what you all are doing for Clayton. Thank you for the pictures!
