My first dog I ever had as a child was a golden cocker and she had little freckles on her nose. I named her Sandy (my parents made me change her name from Mai Tai - the people who had her named her after an alcoholic beverage and me being five at the time, my parents felt I should name her something else). She was a great dog. She was by my side at all times. I loved that dog. she was a pretty calm dog, and very sweet.

Brattina, I'm surprised at you! I expected more fireworks!

Oh!!! I wish you could see this! Shiva is laying upside down - on her head - curled over kind of sideways with that big butt in the air, paws waving, skin all wrinkled up on her forehead making Wookie noises to get attention. She really sounds exactly like Chewbacca! (ROFLMAO)

I know this is an old topic and I'm sorry if I shouldn't bring it up again, but I have to disagree with those ideas and discrimination against Cockers.

Blondie's very energetic, and spoiled rotten, but I think that's just because he's very smart, almost like a kid, he knows where his limits are and is always wanting to push them a little.

He doesn't like children BECAUSE he had a traumatic experience with one, but after barking and pretending he's the big dog, he gets to know the kid, and then enjoys playing and running like mad!

Most people, I guess, don't like Cockers because they are challenging, and need time, dedication and patience, like a kid! But Blondie's the most affectionate, loving dog, he's very sweet and the best part is that he's playful and always makes us smile, even while he's not feeling very well

I love cockers. They are so adorable and I agree with you, the one I had when I was younger was always by my side and she was very affectionate.

I think your cocker sounds wonderful and I'm happy to see that this little puppy is loved above all!!

I have only had a few experiences with cockers, my aunty used to own one, my only grimace would be that when he was a young pup he used to get very nippy and yappy when he got excited, but as with all puppies he soon grew out of that and turned into a lovely well mannerd dog.

Welcome to the forum frenchfries! I also have a cocker spaniel and agree totally with you. I can't go anywhere in the house without Sadie attached to me somehow. They are very devoted and loyal dogs.

Welcome, Frenchfries! My best friend has the most adorable little black Cocker she found cowering on her porch, all covered in mud and cockleburrs and malnourished. Carter has turned out to be a delight - the only real behaviour 'problem' he has is that he just hates any man in a police uniform. We figure whoever abused him before was a cop.

I never met a Cocker, but I have met a CKC Spaniel!! Now he was the cutest, sweetest, little dog I've seen yet! I know that some Cockers can be nasty (just like any other breed) but it depends on its trianing, socialization, and breeding.
