My new puppy, who we think may end up being named Tucker, is a cocker spaniel. He's a lighter tan & he is full of spunk. I'm getting too old to be breaking in a new puppy but he's just so adorable. I got him from a hoarder so I guess you can say I rescued him from a life of being in a crate.
Then my number one dog is also a cocker. Her name is Smokey (long story behind that name), she will be 8 in July. She's a puppy mill dog. She's white with buff colored spots. I just lost her brother 8 weeks ago from cancer on Feb 25. I miss him terribly.
Then the 3rd one I have, who I also took from the hoarder is Penny. He claims she's half cocker, half long haired dachshund but to me she looks like a mini Irish setter. The vet agrees that we just started a new breed. She's in surgery right now. She has a belly button hernia that she was born with & she's being spayed.
So, for now, my family is complete & when I lose another kid (that's what I call them) there will always be 2 here so the survivors aren't lost the way my Smokey girl was when we lost her brother, Boomer.
I thought I would have all this time to play in the kitchen & I don't. This is a hard week full of a lot of work tending to the new brew so I am eating mostly junk :( but it will all be worth it once everyone is healthy & trained. I'll go back to eating properly & healthy some other time.
