I've had two American Cocker Spaniels - a female and a male. The female one died from cancer at 11 - my heart was deeply broken. She was loving, smart, oh! I still miss her after almost twenty years. The boy, a black one, died at nine, blind because of a vet error (I still can't forgive that guy). They are lovely, very smart, playful, the best companion! Not very common around here, where people prefer the English ones.

And nothing about the history of inbreeding and the health issues that come with these dogs? Cockers are prone to ear infections, hypothyroidism, food allergies, and various eye problems; not to mention deafness, immune disorders, chronic hepatitis and improper socialization. If you have to have a purebred dog, always be prepared for these issues. Find responsible breeders. Don't buy a dog just because you want a cute accessory.
