Even if you are too young to understand the cuteness of their names, you will understand that they are the cutest Cocker Spaniels! There is only a slight chance that you could die from all the cute.
Born in October of 2015, they were adorable in the “puppy pics” that the breeder sent.
I am not sure I was ready for the reality of two pups, litter mates at that. I thought I was and on December 24, 2015 they landed in our lives.
They arrived a little dazed from all the attention that they received on their flight. Seems a lot of airline employees wanted to take them home! It took a while for them to get from plane to terminal as we watched the baggage handlers and airport staff say good-bye.
Once home, they took over everything. My sleep schedule changed. My meal schedule changed. And heaven knows that I spent HOURS teaching them the word “outside”!
I will save the details of their training for a time when I have more patience. Litter mates do have slight issues of bonding. Luckily, we found a trainer that was familiar with the bonding questions and took those too cute pups and turned them into (mostly) well behaved dogs.
And they are still too cute for words.
