Eating....period. Now that Lady is in doggie heaven, I really miss the fact that she was my "Hoover." She'd eat my other two dogs "discards"....the food they dropped out of their dishes. Now I'm stepping on kibble every time I enter the kitchen!!
She was my Alpha, so while she could still see, if another dog was getting my attention, she'd body slam it out of the way!
A Kong, filled with peanut butter, of course! She didn't really play with toys unless they revolved around food.
Food. All food. Anyone's food. Everyone's food. Dog food. Human food. Food in general, food in specific. She was my chow-hound. There wasn't a food she'd turn down, until she got sick at the end. (Kidney failure).
We'd go down to the shoreline and sniff out the good stuff. Finding a dead fish was her best reward! In her later years, it was a little stroll around the "food room" (kitchen) where she could sniff out anything edible left behind by my other two dogs.
Her cutest one was "Sitting Pretty." She'd sit up on that big round butt of hers for hours, just waiting for a treat to come her way.
I purchased her from a breeder in my county. She was the last puppy in the litter, and when I asked the breeder about why, she explained that Lady was very shy. Well, when I met her, she came bounding out of the house, and jumped up onto my legs, with not a bit of shyness. I guess she knew that I was going to be her DOGMOM for the next nearly 13 years. I used to tease her about being the "puppy that nobody wanted" -- except for me, of course!!! She got me through the death of my Cocker, Lucky, in 1994, and the death of my mother in 1995. She was the sweetest girl in the world. There's a big hole in my heart from her loss, but it's getting smaller as the hole is refilling with all the happy memories of what an absolutely wonderful furgirl she was.
If you have a Cocker, watch their kidneys! Get yearly blood tests to check BUN levels, because once the symptoms actually start showing up, it's usually too late to do much. She only lived 23 days after the kidney disease was diagnosed.
