This is a picture of the newest member of our family. Her name is Star and she is a miniature Cocker Spaniel that we got from the pound last October. They said she is about 7 years old. She is the most loving dog you have ever seen. Her favorite thing to do this hot summer is lick ice cubes until they are gone! This picture of her has been nicknamed Willy (for Willie Nelson) by my sister.

Bailey (Cocker Spaniel) And Cleo (Cat)

By Mary in AZ 2 3

Our dog's name is Bailey and the cat is Cleo. Our 4 month old Cocker Spaniel loves our 9 year old Calico cat.

We adopted our cat from the kennel where we board our animals. After our beloved comfort retriever (Cocker Spaniel/Golden Retriever mix) departed for the rainbow bridge, we got the Cocker Spaniel.

You can see from the picture, our two "pals" like to groom each other. They are constant companions. Our cat waits for the dog to get back inside after he has been out in the yard.

Bentley (Cocker Spaniel)

By amy 5 2

Bentley is 4 years old. Technically he's a Cocker Spaniel, but he thinks human. Bentley came into my life in early 2006, as a puppy. I can't imagine a day without him now. He loves toys, especially his *singing* chickens, more than any child, canine, human or other, I have ever known.

Bentley adores running through the soybean and wheat fields, and the pecan grove near our home. My Bentley is ridiculously smart. I know everyone says that, but he really is! I have to spell many words just so he will not comprehend conversations and act accordingly. No one believes it, until they see it :)

Chucci (American Cocker Spaniel)

By Johnny 2

Chucci is a 10 month old American Cocker Spaniel. We got him last July. He likes to hang out with me! Chucci loves our walks in the country every morning. Chucci and I immediately became attached the day he was given to me by a family that found that they couldn't care properly for him. He goes everywhere I go and sleeps at the foot of my bed. I've had many pets through the years, but never have I had such a loving dog that was as great a companion as Chucci (pronounced Chu-Chy)

Lily (American Cocker Spaniel)

By Monique 8 5

Lily is an 18 month old American Cocker Spaniel. I saw puppies advertised on a community bulletin board. I went to see them and fell in love with her. She was 7 weeks old at that time. I brought her home that day, and am so glad that I found her.

She loves to play tug of war and fetch. Her favorite thing to do is steal socks when I am taking them from the dryer. She also loves taking walks. I have had lots of dogs in my life (I am 61), but Lily has such a sweet personality and seems especially intuitive, she will be a very memorable friend.

Fantasia (Black and Tan Cocker Spaniel)

By deb 2

Fantasia is a 3 year old Black and Tan Cocker Spaniel. She was a birthday gift from my kids. Fantasia loves to chase tennis balls. She will chase it until she drops but it has to be a tennis ball, no rubber, no plastic, no sponge. It HAS to be a tennis ball.

Fantasia is a clown, she always seems to know when you need a smile and she will do something just so funny you just can't stay blue. I swear she has learned how to make a funny face just to cheer you up! Closeup of face.

Merlin (American Cocker Spaniel)

By Karmastrophic 2

I received him from a breeder in August. My previous Cocker had passed away a few weeks prior after battling lung cancer, and Merlin was having difficulty finding a home due to a congenital defect. No one seemed to want this adorable little puppy who would need surgery. Well, they missed out. He had his surgery last week and is doing fabulous!
