The girls were being so cute yesterday I couldn't help but get the camera out. Of course I know exactly what they were thinking.

OK I sat, now where is my treat???

I "still" have not gotten my treat, mom!!!
Image

I love my toys!!!
Image

I love you!!!!!
Image

I'm too busy to look at you.....there's a squirrel out there!!!!

In all honesty if Maya would have seen the squirrel she would not be trying to pose for treats. LOL! She would have been trying to scratch a hole through that patio door!!

Those little brains are pretty smart and it doesn't take long for them to learn something when there's food involved. I started giving Charlie a treat in the morning just when we are on our way out the door. Now he knows when we are ready to leave and sits pretty on the stairs staring at my hands for a treat :ROFL:

Your girls are just beautiful on every picture you share. :love :hp :love

Those are great pictures. Nothing but love there.

Rory is with Maya about the squirrels. It is impossible for me to keep my patio door clean!

They are so darling! I love the first one - 'ok I sat, now where's my treat?' That is so true!!!

Being fairly new to the Cocker owning world, and assuredly new to this forum, I have to ask... what causes their eyes to be two different colors? Is that rare? Or is it a particular type within the breed? I've never seen it before and now it has me totally curious! :bg

Thanks April! The blue eye come from the merle coloring. Maya is a blue merle which is not a recognized color for the AKC for the American Cocker but they are out there. Apparently though the merle gene has some health related problems associated with it so technically it is not a desired color and you just should never breed them. I do think merles are stunning though which I am sure why they are out there. We got Angel from the shelter so we are assuming there is some merle in her lines due to the blue eye. There is another little boy cocker on the forum, he is new to the forum, and he also has one blue eye and one brown eye. He is quite the cute little thing and I would have LOVED to have brought him home to my house, I just am drawn to the one blue eye and one brown eye thing I guess. When we saw Angel at the shelter (and we were volunteering not looking for another dog), I saw that blue eye/brown eye and I was hooked. :wnk

Fascinating, Donna! I love your photos, too - one can really look at the eyes and the beautiful distinction each kind has.
