Great pictures of your beautiful furkids. I've had a few Cockers throughout the years, loved them. Both of mine were very gentle and loving.

Sage will be joining a fun family.

We have been incredibly lucky with our Cocker's....Maggie was my DH's dog...she loved him best and I like to say tolerated the rest of us...but she really did love us too...she was good with kids and although was a bit lazy would go for a hike happily. Emma is more energetic and sweet as the day is long, she is a bit leery of strangers but never growls and would not hurt a flea. My kitties are all really affectionate, although it takes Grace a while to warm up to strangers where Maddy thinks everyone is here to see her. Claire is a special case, we think she has autism, and I don't say this lightly. She loves everyone but has such interesting habits and quirks...we rescued her from the humane society at 8-9 months of age, she lived in a cage from birth, being born there and we think perhaps this has affected her. But we love her and she is happy with Adam.

I think I'm lucky to be getting a puppy...I know it will be a lot of work, but the pay off is worth the sleepless nights and constant training. My hope is by a year we can start to sit back and enjoy our efforts, and I know training never ends, but with the right foundation the rewards are great.

Maddy is really really soft, Grace is really all fur and quite soft as well. Claire has wild fur, it's soft but a weird texture...and she sheds more than the other two....

that is how our three cats are too. The first two came from shelters and the third was a stray found at a truck stop in Italy in the middle of no where! LOL. Cats need homes!
