My oldest daughter bought Tobey from a pet store eight years ago. Tobey is a handsome brown Cocker Spaniel. He was a happy, spunky and smart puppy. Sadly a few months after we had Tobey, he began to lose his eyesight. The pet store told us they would “exchange” him for us. Pets are not exchangeable; we love Tobey. Losing his eyesight has not change his merry disposition nor has it slowed him down. He keeps up with our other dog; running in the yard and playing. Tobey loves his rubs but is not a clingy dog. He is good with other dogs, cats, adults and children. Tobey is a sweet and devoted family member.
The cons about a Cocker is they need to be brushed and groomed. His fur grows very quickly and can get matted if not brushed regularly. He also likes to bark at any sound. The mailman is his archenemy. Lol, he would never hurt anyone; just likes to pretend he is a guard dog. This might be because of being blind he over compensates his assertiveness.
