Peabody Johanson | PNW Spaniel Squad

Hi All!

I'm Peabody and helping senior dogs is my mission. Each year my team PNW Spaniel Squad (formerly Team Crazy Cocker Spaniel) raise funds for Old Dog Haven. 

I personally have 6 special needs spaniels, four of which are seniors. All rescue. 

Mickey is our only boy and he is 11 years old. He is a Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He has two spinal conditions: Altano-axil Malformation (where his C1 overrides his C2) and Syringomyelia. He has hydrocephalus, Chiari malformation, is deaf, has reoccurring middle ear infections, has facial paralysis, has thyroid disease, idiopathic high blood pressure, mitral valve disease. He also had behavior issues and aggression towards males (you can see we have gotten him over that :P ).
He is a grumpy old man who secretly has a sweet heart. Was a mama's boy who turned totally to a daddy's boy. 

*Sadly Crissy passed of Congestive Heart Failure May 14th, we now walk in her honor.*
Crissy is a 12 year old tricolored Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Crissy is a sassy ball of sweetness who is deaf, blind, in congestive heart failure, collapsed trachea, and suffers vasovagal syncope episodes but that doesn't slow her down. 

Daisy is a 8 year old tricolor Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Daisy is the mama of all our dogs in spirit. She takes care of everyone including her humans. Daisy is our healthiest cavalier only suffering from Mitral Valve Disease. 

Georgia is (we think) a 6 year old Blenheim English Toy Spaniel. She suffers from Syringomyelia which is a spinal condition that her and Mickey both have. She is our comedic relief and a bit of a thief. Enjoys snorting in your face and snuggling up next to you. 

Tulip is our youngest at the age of 3. She is a Blenheim English Toy Spaniel that comes from a puppy mill auction. While she is 3 she has the soul of an old dog and is our least active dog actually. She has socialization issues and respiratory sinus arrhythmia. 

Penny is a 4 year old Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She has one eye removed due to glaucoma that went untreated due to neglect. Penny is sweet and shy (due to her previous treatment by humans) but just wants to be loved. 

Darcy recently joined our family in June of this year! We guess that she is about 10 years old and is a Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She has Mitral Valve Disease (currently no meds needed) and has VERY bad dry eye. Darcy was found by Old Dog Haven at the shelter. They contacted me to get her into Cavalier Rescue USA back in January. She came in covered in fleas, dry eye (really bad), cherry eye (required surgery) and a UTI as well. 
As fate would have it, Darcy became available soon after Crissy passed. She was fostered by the same family that fostered our Crissy. 
She is a wonderfully sweet soul who has fit in rather quickly with our squad. 

Holly was (she crossed the rainbow bridge October 2016) a 9 year old Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She was a sweet and shy breeder release who was my husband's heart dog. She passed sadly from congestive heart failure as cavaliers often do. 

Skoshi was (she crossed the rainbow bridge March 2015) a 15 year old buff cocker spaniel. She was the reason we started walking for Old Dog Haven and the original member of our spaniel squad. She's why we used to be called Team Crazy Cocker Spaniel...because she was. But she was the best. 

I hope you can open your hearts and pocket books and help me raise money for Old Dog Haven!


Not familiar with Old Dog Haven? Here's their info:

Old Dog Haven provides permanent foster homes for senior dogs who have been abandoned or are about to become homeless. Currently Old Dog Haven has over 300 dogs in permanent foster care and vet bills are approximately $90,000 per month.

That's right, $90,000 per month. The Walk for Old Dogs is their largest fundraiser of the year and all money raised is used to care for the dogs. So every donation goes very far and welcomes you into a world where senior dogs can live in peace with families who love and care for them. You can read more about Old Dog Haven and the work they do on their web site

Thank you so much. I am grateful for your donations and for spreading the word about Old Dog Haven!
