It’s not every day you get two friends in the same day.
but Milly and Tilly were Cocker Spaniels that I bought from a pet store that was closing down. They had been rescued from an abandoned cottage in the deep brush that lead to them growing up with impaired eyesight (the inability to perceive depth)
Milly was much more rambunctious than Tilly, as Tilly needed a gentler touch and more attention to be happy.
After a long day of work, I would come in to have them both run to great me at the door, often slamming into my legs (using my to stop) and almost knocking me to the ground in the process.
I found that Spaniels were very loving dogs, and enjoy the company of people, friends, family and even kids.
The only downsides are not knowing their limits when its comes to food and play time, I’ve witnessed them eat full dishes of food then rush out to play in the backyard only to throw up or get sick from to much playing.
A great dog to have if you have the attention to offer.
