Hi again! My name is Val and I joined shortly before the crash. So here are my re-introductions. In my little condo in Atlanta there is myself, my boyfriend and our two furkids Alastar and Sophie. Alastar is our (almost) 3 yr. old Yorkie and Sophie, the newest member of the clan, is our 3 month old Cocker. She has been such a joy to have and we absolutely adore her! Even Alastar is warming up to her I think...anyway here are a few pics of our clan!

I'm Jessica. I'm 33 and live in north Austin, Tx. with my cocker spaniel, Jasmine "Jazzy" and a gray cat I rescued, Jeri Anne I am a professional pet groomer at a shop in Cedar Park. I enjoy photographing dog shows (documentary style), scrapbooking, needle work, and decorating my new apartment. :bg

Jazzy is 3 years old. She is the 5th cocker I have had the pleasure to love. She has her UKC championship, but decided to drop out of showing in favor of the swimming pool before we gained any AKC points. So I guess you might say she has retired from showing. lol I call her my little "Chicken Butt" because she is afraid of everything: storms, loud noises, a garbage bag on the floor... doesn't matter. If it is new, she is afraid of it... unless it is a toad. She LOVES to chase those. :roll She is the October 21st dog in Dog Fancy's 2010 dog-a-day calendar and the Oct. 23rd/24th dog for Dog Fancy's 2010 dog-a-day box calendar. If you watch the movie "Miracle Dogs Too," it stars cocker spaniels from Jazzy's breeder (now retired) and the puppies at the end look JUST like her when I brought her home at 8 weeks. I just finally found a copy of this movie and HAD to watch it because of the cockers. :love Oddly enough, for whatever reason, the more recently released copies of that movie have English Cockers on the front cover. The dogs inside are definitely American, however.

Hi! I'm Naomi and I joined the Forum in 2008 after adopting my tri-color, Mia from San Diego Spaniel Rescue. I discovered the Forum while doing research on Cockers. My family was looking for a dog and I wanted to make sure Cockers were the breed for us. Boy are they ever! We now foster and volunteer for SDSR. I "lurked" on the Forum for several months before joining and have found it to be a place of information, support and fun. Where else can you talk about your Cocker without boring anyone?

I am a Kindergarten teacher in Poway, north of San Diego which is one reason it took me until now to update all my Forum info. The first weeks of fall are a crazy-busy time for teachers! I love seeing all the pictures of everyone; it's great to put a face to the names. I have been lucky enough to meet many Forum members and hope to meet many more.

Hi!

I'm Heather, from Toronto, Canada. I'm 24 and have lived with cockers all my life, from before I was born to my family's youngest, Cooper, who is now 2 (my mom, Dianne, has posted pictures of him and his sister, Rookie, on here already!). My boyfriend and I are now looking for our first furbaby of our own to join us in our condo - we can't wait to be cocker parents and have a little one of our own to love! We're hoping to adopt through a shelter or a rescue.

Hi All,
My name is Tom. I am 32 years old and live in the beautiful state of Colorado. I come from a family of dog lovers and was raised with beagles, bassets and akitas. My parents have 3 cavalier king charles spaniels, a chocolate lab and an akita. My fiancee and I are owned by 2 shih tzus, a lab mutt and our new baby boy Duke. Duke is 5 months old and is our first cocker. He is very smart (picked up "sit" in one 10 minute session!) but kind of a handful. We just love him to pieces.

Here he is when first brought him home:

Hello - my name is April from Idaho and we are the proud new parents of a 12-week-old Cocker Spaniel Puppy. She is a Buff/Red and her name is Rosey Bell or just "Bell".

I've personally been in love with Cocker Spaniels for about 20 years, but now that our two small children are a little bit older we decided it was a good time to introduce our lives to the world of puppy-dom. We looked at several breeds but always came back to the Cocker, and researched and waited and waited so we could get one from a reputable breeder. One year later, here we are and little Bell brings so much joy to our hearts. I love her! And, the Persian cat thinks we brought her a new source of entertainment.

My husband and I own our own vintage sewing machine business and work together from home - this has made for the ideal puppy-rearing scenario!

Anyway, I will be perusing many of the threads in the future.
