Saturday was the five year anniversary of Teddy's Gottcha Day.

We adopted him after Camp Cocker had him for one night. They didn't have time to evaluate him with other dogs, at the time we had two, or tell us anything about him other than he was picked up in the streets of Torrance, CA and was red tagged at the Carson Animal Shelter.

To the best I can tell, he was an apartment dog. He, even after five years, doesn't like to hang out in our backyard. He does his business and wants to come back in.

On most nights, he sleeps on our daughters bed.

He's turned out to be one of the sweetest dogs. He loves other dogs, but has problems with meeting people for the first time.

When we are watching TV, he wants to be on someones lap.

Happy, we think, Ninth Birthday (Gottcha Day) Teddy. What a sweet boy!!!

What a sweet and lucky boy! I just want to hug him!

You recently rescued another, correct? How is he doing?

Cici - yes we adopted Calvin on September 12th from Second Chance Cocker.

He gets along great with Lacey and Teddy. I have been taking him to obedience class since we adopted him and agility about a month later. He seems to have issues with the dogs at obedience class and none at agility. At agility class, he is mainly off leash. This may be the reason.

He seems to be more comfortable outside. I suspect that he was an outside dog in Bakersfield.

He also craves affection and seems to want to eat everything. It seems like he got very little interaction with his owners and food whenever they got around to it.

Now, he gets plenty of healthy food and people that will pet him all the time.

He's much quieter than our other dogs.

My wife wanted a buff cocker.

Thank you for asking.

Ah, yes, now I remember Calvin. Glad he is doing so well. It's wonderful of you to adopt another.

I would love to add another and think about it all the time, but I work full-time/over-time and somehow I don't think Cici will take an addition well at all. She's a paw-full all by herself.
