Welcome!  Thanks for visiting my web site.  There are a few things I would like you to know.  I'd hate for you to make a quick visit to the site and miss the best parts because you didn't know where to look.  This is a HUGE web site, with about a hundred individual pages I've written...  so if you only browse for a few minutes, you will have barely scratched the surface.

Now, let me point you to a few specific pages I've written, which I think will be of interest.

If you don't already own a Cocker Spaniel, and you're trying to learn about them...  be sure to check out these three pages:

1.  General Information About The Breed
2.  Helpful Tips About Cocker Spaniels
3.  Frequently Asked Questions About Cockers

If you already own a Cocker, but are trying to pick up a few pieces of information you can use...  check these pages out:

1.  Tips On Raising Cockers
2.  Potty Training Tips
3.  Recipe For Home-made Ear Cleaning Solution
4.  How To Groom A Cocker Spaniel
5.  Products Recommended For Cocker Spaniels
6.  Recipe For Homemade Dog Biscuits
7.  Top 10 Signs Your Cocker Spaniel Is Addicted To Tennis Balls
8.  Information About Whelping A Litter Of Puppies
9.  How To Be A Responsible Breeder

If you're interested in purchasing a Cocker Spaniel puppy, please remember that we are retired from breeding and will not be having any litters in the future.  But you may want to read:

1.  Tips On Buying A Cocker Puppy

If you're really just interested in being entertained by some great pictures of Cocker Spaniels, these are the pages you'll love:

1.  Pictures of some of our previous litters of puppies
2.  Cocker videos and slideshows
3.  Dog Wisdom (Illustrated With Cute Cocker Pictures)
4.  Cocker Spaniel photos you can use as your computer desktop background
5.  Pictures from our 2005 puppy reunion
6.  Pictures from our May 2004 puppy reunion
7.  Pictures from our August 2003 puppy reunion
8.  Pictures Of Our Puppies At Their New Homes
9.  Pictures from the 2003 national Cocker Spaniel specialty show
10.  Pictures from the Mission Valley Cocker Spaniel Club specialty show
11.  Carol Patterson's pictures of our 2004 litter

Those pages will give you a pretty good starting point...  but I want to encourage you to not stop there!  If you only visit the pages that I've written, you'll really be missing out on a big part of the fun that this site has to offer.  There's so much more in our Facebook group!  The group is where you get to hear what my friends have to say about Cocker Spaniels...  and the best part is that they all have digital cameras and they love to share pictures of their dogs.  Browse through the forum, and prepare to be entertained!  You find some great photos, some interesting stories, a lot of useful information from people who have been there and done that, and I think you'll find that it's a very friendly group.  Many wonderful face-to-face friendships have begun on our little Internet group.  Even if you never meet any of the people in person...  I think you'll find them quite entertaining online!  We've got hundreds of members of the group, and lots of new messages get posted to the group every day.  (And in case you're wondering...  participating in the Facebook group is absolutely free.)

OK...  that's my introductory message for you "newbies"...   now go and explore the site and have some fun!
