Ridley's Info

Ridley joined the Larkin family in mid-2004. It was a difficult time for us as my step-father Bill – loved so much by us all – was in the final stages of his very short-lived battle with asbestos related cancer. We have a lovely neighborhood pet store in our community that breaks all the stereotypes associated with buying a pet from a pet store; we realize this is typically seen as a “no-no” but this store isn’t like any other pet store I’ve ever seen. They really take time to know and love all the animals that come in and they’re very selective about what dogs and cats they accept, coming from only the best breeders with whom they’ve worked for years. After our good friends got a wonderful cocker from this store, my husband and I decided we would like to do the same. We went into the pet store that fateful day for some cheering up and we saw a beautiful, fluffy white (part albino) and very playful cocker spaniel who won our hearts over. Although we were going through a difficult time we decided a happy puppy would be just what we needed. Of course we had no idea how much work it would be! But in the end it was worth it all. We have a very well trained dog who everyone loves; he’s quite a character and can work his way into your heart before you know it. We now have several different sets of folks wanting to get on the schedule to watch him when we’re away! He’s very special and perhaps the best memory I have of him so far is how wonderful he was to Bill in his final days. For hours at a time, he would not leave his side in the bed. He lay with him dutifully; his paws stretched out in front of him as he slept peacefully and snuggled with Bill. He’s a truly important part of our family and one of the best things that ever happened to us.

Oreo's Info

I've had Oreo for about 5 months now and I absolutely love him. I'm an only child and he's just like a little brother to me basically. When I'm at school he keeps my grandmother company at all times. And he loves being around kids He keeps everyone laughing with the silly little things he does every day. He has his favorite squeaky toy that he always puts in his mouth and constantly squeaks while walking around the house. I was a happy teenager when I got him and my dad even says that when Oreo came into my life he sees me even happier when he walks into the room. I love him and I always will. I can't imagine my life without him now.
