Hi everyone!

I'm Courtney and almost mom to furbaby Kasey! He is a sable and white parti and he comes home in 2 days!! Actually less than that as we pick him up Monday am! We have never had a cocker spaniel before. We have always had labs. We have 3 kids who are 10, 7 and 6 yrs old. Our last lab passed away due to genetic issues shortly before her 5th birthday in early July. She was our oldest child's therapy/companion dog. It was very hard to lose her and lose her so soon. We are very excited to welcome Kasey into our home.

I'm looking forward to learning all about him!

Welcome, Courtney! Have a safe trip to pick up Kasey. You'll be crazy about him before you know it. Please go to the "Important Notices" section and check out how to post a picture (they need to be re-sized). It's a forum rule (ok, not really) that we need pictures. :gig

aha..I think I got it figured out...the first pic is at 6 weeks old, the 2nd at 4 weeks old. We picked him out at 2 weeks old, and have gone to visit often, so we will have pictures of him growing up from birth basically. We love that! less than 24 hours now!!! =)

Thank you, Terry and Susan! Sebastian turns 17 on March 20th. I am praying for another year..another Spring, Summer, Fall....each day is a gift with him. I received him as a birthday gift when he was four weeks old. I now know that the breeder obviously wasn't very good to give away the pups at that age. Apparently, the mother would have nothing to do with the pups and - I had no idea so was unaware. However, he is the best thing that has ever happened to me! I am always surprised when people note how old he is...we had four cockers on our block and all lived to be 15 - 17. My (previous) next door neighbour had an American Cocker that was 19 and still running around the yard like a puppy. So, crossing my fingers and toes~~

In Spirit, Michelle~ :hp

I have been away for the forum for about two years as I got a time-intensive job (which I love) and have much less time for anything other than work.

But I am the proud owner of two field bred English Cocker Spaniels:

Squareclose Flyer of Pittendreich SH CGC aka Ben, age 15 years
Beantown High Flyer SH WDX aka Kelly, age 7 years

and I love both Cocker Spaniels, they are my favorite breed!

Here is a recent picture of Kelly:

Hi! I'm Rebecca, originally from Northern California but am living in Northern Ireland after finishing a Master's program here. I live with my wonderful boyfriend and Kallie, my adopted cocker spaniel. She's six and the love of my life, well ours :hp
I rescued her from a local shelter (local to San Francisco, not Belfast) when she was between 1 1/2 and 2. She is a spoiled girl but deserves all of it!
My favorite thing: watching her run and seeing her ears flop as she does :love
Least favorite memory: when she rolled in a fresh cow pie on a camping trip! ick!

Hi All, new to posting to the forum. Have been reading for a couple months. I did a post in the training section, but thought I should introduce myself!

My name is Pam and my new puppy is Cooper. We brought him home on Dec. 21st and it has been a whirlwind!

He is the greatest little pup (aside from the nipping and growling) He is wonderful with my kids and just a joy to have around. He have had him for 3 weeks now, and very few accidents in the house.

Well that's it for now!

Vicky&Charlie (sorry if that is spelled wrong) I am from NS too!!

We all love our youngest family members. They are both sweeties. :love Looking forward to getting to know everyone here and counting on advice! :sm

What beautiful babies! Funny -my newest and your oldest have almost opposite coloration. Bruce is more white with red accents as opposed to red with a dash of white. Of course the puppy makes me go AWWWW and miss my Theo being a baby, but I remember those nippy days too well to want another just yet! Welcome.

Hi Everyone
I thought that I would introduce myself.... I am Louise and I live with my husband in Dubai in the UAE and we have a lovely 9 month old English Cocker Spaniel called Tia :)
It is so great to find this forum as unfortuantely, there is nothing like it where we live.
I had Cocker Spaniels when I was growing up so as soon as the oppportunity arose, I could not wait to have another one to bring into my new family.
The picture i have of Tia is too big so will need to get a smaller one of her.

I am also contemplating getting another one, but, they do not have breeders over here or rescue shelters for Cocker Spaniels.

It is great to meet you all.

Welcome! This is a great place to get your Cocker Spaniel "fix." People post the sweetest photos on here. I say Cocker Spaniel fix as if it is a good thing, but right now both of my boys are laying on top of me, and with their winter coats and weight they are a little much for one woman to handle. :lol3 Anyway, welcome again and I hope you can post a photo of your Tia soon. :wnk

Hello everyone. Joined recently, but have been lurking for a couple of months. We have a little Cocker Spaniel Princess - Natasha. She's now 12 weeks old and keeping us very busy! I really appreciate all the helpful info on this site. This is our second Cocker Spaniel, but it's been a long time since we've had a puppy in the house. Our beloved Maggie was with us for 17 years, and it's taken us 3 years to go for it again :th-up :th-up

Love seeing all the pics of the new babies as well as the beautiful older dogs.
