Princess's Bio
I have always wanted to have a dog. So when I able to get a home of my own, I bought my very first puppy, Princess.

When she is with us the first 3 days, we were very worried as she did not even make a sound or even a yelp or a bark.

Later on, I found out that she is quiet girl yet very loving and giving. Her bad habits? She loves to be the center of attention and she simply loves to take photographs like this one where she posed patiently beside her Minnie Mouse, she only moved off when I moved away. For now she enjoy being the only child, being pamper with lots of kisses and toys not only by us, by our relatives and friends too.

Harley's Bio
She is an extremely friendly, energetic puppy. 

Her passions include:
Early morning walks at the local high school track (6:30 a.m. to watch the sun come up!!)
Playing fetch with her bones, tennis balls, chew toys, and especially her squeaky “Harley Davidson” bone.
Getting attention, especially when her “mom” is on the telephone…she does this by bringing her loudest SQUEAK toy as close to the receiver of the phone as she can and squeaking it until I get off the phone, or begin playing fetch! She also does this at night if I am laying in bed reading and ignoring her!
Visiting her “granddad’s” house (my father’s home) and playing soccer with him. She does this by kicking a small practice golf ball around the den, while holding her “bug” toy in her mouth. It’s amazing what you can teach a dog to do!!!

Niki's Bio
Last year in October 2001 I came to this nice home in Colombo. 

I am intelligent, good-natured and always game for anything when it comes to play time. I love my squeaky orange ball very much. Since my favorite colour is orange. My favorite game is chasing the Ball. 

I love seeing the cows in the paddy field. That is really relaxing. 

I was playing with my squeaky ball. Now I am felling tired so I ‘d better rest before my dinner time. Oops… the camera is flashing. I am too tired to smile even.

JJ's Black Bear's Bio
Blackie is a very sweet and lovable boy. He loves cats and other dogs. He loves to go swimming and camping. His favorite toys are his velvet squeaky dumbell and his rubber squeaky steak. He enjoys daily exercise playing in his dog run and digging in his new sandbox for buried treasures. Blackie loves a good romp chasing the other dogs. He loves going for rides and he is at the window checking out the world. He is funny when he barks at the TV or computer when it makes car honking or dog barking sounds. He loves his rawhide bones and eats Pedigree Puppy. We plan to breed him to our little female Cocker Angel. We are in the process of building a website for our Cockers. We will keep you posted when it is done!

Jake's Bio
This is my boy Jake. His official name is UACH, UCD Tammy Lynn's Jolly Jake, CD, CGC. The letters are agility & obedience titles. The UACH is a United Agility Champion title. Jake loves training for agility. He likes obedience but gets bored with it. 

When I first saw Jake he was a baby in a cage at the pet store. I fell in love with him. A few weeks later when I convinced my husband we needed a puppy I found an add in the paper for a cocker. I went to the house and it was him! The people who bought him decided after a few weeks that their 5 year old was just too mean to him.

Jake is a very happy boy who is in love with the world. It amazes me how happy he can be 24 hours a day. Jake has never met a stranger. Although we haven't had much time lately, he is a registed therapy dog also. 

Sorry to go on and on but he means the world to me.

Mitzi is a 10 year old Blonde American Cocker Spaniel that we rescued from the Animal Shelter 2 years ago. She is a sweet loving girl who loves to cuddle and kiss. Mitzi loves to be groomed and she always likes to run and show off after a nice trip to the "beauty parlor". Her favorite toys are her stuffed panda bear and her squeaky fish. Mitzi has only barked for the first time this past September , she only grunts and makes hooting sounds when she gets excited. Mitzi is currently on a special diet to help her lose a few pounds and she gets daily exercise walking and running in the dog run with the other dogs trying to burn off those calories.

Name Sidney

Sex female
Age 1.5 years
Location New York, NY (US)
Sidney's Bio
We were drawn to her like magnets and after discovering that her birthday was the same as our wedding date, we were convinced that she was destined to be part of our family.

Sidney is gentle with the neighborhood kids and loves to greet the elderly during our morning and evening walks. Even without enrolling her in training school, she has learned her commands "sit", "bang bang" (to play dead), "lay down", "give a high five", "fetch" and after a full daily of repeating these commands, the "go to sleep" command has come in quite handy!

Sidney has accompanied me to work in Manhattan where she lights up everyone's day, making sure she greets every person in sight. She has given us so much love that no words can describe.

Jessie's Bio
Jessie's family had a previous cocker spaniel for 16 years. Jessie came to live with her adopted family when she was 10 weeks old. She loves playing in the garden with other cocker friends Toby and Felix.  

Jessie is a very brave and good minded little cocker lady with beautiful head and beautiful dark eyes. When our doctor saw her for the first time he said: "Ups, from which film made for children are you?"

"Jessie" loves to play with balls, with her little pic (you saw it on that second photo) and she loves to accompany us everywhere, especially to our Italian restaurant :-)))
In the winter "Jessie" get's nearly "crazy" to get out into the snow and run there.  She loves traveling as well very much and she is very, very happy when she meets her brother "Leo" from Cologne, whom she loves so much.

My dog's name is Solo Satin, we call her Solo for short.  She is an English Cocker Spaniel who recently had her 3rd birthday. Solo understands everything you tell her.  She's one of the smartest dogs ever.  She absolutely loves her photo being taken, in fact we don't have any photos without Solo being plonked right in the middle, with her front paws in the air in her begging pose, she knows she looks cute too!
