Default Cockers

I know this may not be an option, because I don't think cockers are reccommended for allergy sufferers, but just in case, can I ask some questions about them?

I love cockers. We have some friends with one, and they keep him clipped short so he looks like a little mini lab, it's so cute. And he is a great dog.

They did have some trouble with him piddling when he got excited, is that a breed thing? And what about cherry eye? Our old neighbors had a cocker, and she talks all the time about how they get cherry eye and it's so expensive and this and that. Is it really that common?

And, if my son does have allergies, would keeping a cocker trimmed short have any effect on that, or not because it's really the dander?

And like the schnauzer thread, what about a poodle/cocker mix? (I swear if I get a poodle mix I won't call it any of those rediculous names).

Thanks so much everyone, I'm learning so much here. I'm becoming more and more confident that we will be able to find the right dog when the time is right.
