|Well, I obviously need to join CA, aka Cockers Anonymous! Next dog I get, it will be internal battle for it not to be an Am Cocker. First dog I've ever had two of simultaneously. That's against my rules, lol! When my GSD passed, it was about getting another German dog, but I couldn't resist the fever
Cockers are totally different to live with than to meet or hang with. They are my drug. They make me laugh and keep me more light hearted. They are a bohemian breed....very individual, IMO and experiences. Their quirk factor is HUGE. Both of mine have their own rendition of peculiar, are just striking as individuals, and how they entertain the crap out of me....I can't put a price on that.
They don't compare/contrast to Shelties. They are masters at seduction, easily spoilable, sort of stubborn. Not very biddable. Although, get in their head the right way and they will lay themselves down for you. They have SO MUCH heart! As much as any silly ol' German dog. Their intelligence is grossly underrated. Chester is the most intelligent dog I have owned, and that comes from some pretty elite company.
They took me by surprise. My husband is the same way. He loves the German dogs, but Cockers are just a joybox for him as well.
