There's something about a Cocker Spaniel's eyes that make you connect with them almost instantly. There's innocence, trust and most importantly - love.
I've had Casper since he was a month old. As a puppy he was playful, always hungry ( or fooled me into thinking that he was hungry) , eager to learn and extremely trusting. However he has always been prone to a few illnesses like most Cocker Spaniels- tick fever , kidney stones and ear infections. Also, it is important to pay close attention to the grooming of this breed.
Casper has grown to be a great dog who is extremely patient , understanding and loves children. He has always been fond of smaller animals like cats, rabbits and mice and it's heartbreaking and funny all at once to see the disappointment on his face when the smaller animals are scared of him!
I would definitely recommend this breed to any first time pet owner family. Very obedient, friendly and loving.
