Dear john, does your spaniel speak with an English accent? I would prefer received pronounciation.

Just kidding. Good luck with rehoming him.

I've been without dog since my companion of 14 years died of a stroke 5 years ago with her head in my lap. I don't like small dogs but cannot have a large one either due to HDB guidelines. The Cocker would be an ideal medium sized dog. I used to breed & show dogs while in my early 20's (Welsh Corgis - Cardigans) but we had a Cocker when I was a kid. I've only been bitten twice in my life by dogs. Both time by cockers, our own and a neighbours several years later. I'm a bit skittish with cockers and their known "Rage" syndrome. Weren't for that, I would consider it.

Also, this should should have been put in the Classified Section but you already know that.

Rage syndrome is when a cocker turns around and literally bites the hand that feeds them for no apparent reason. They look kinda crazy and then they are back to normal as if nothing happened and trying to lick your wounds. For some reason cockers are occasionally afflicted with it more than most breeds. Nobody knows why. I'm sure it written up somewhere, but I was informed why I was probably bitten when I was around spaniel handlers during shows. I'll probably wait until I retire in 3 years and get a dog once I return to the farm and have the time to work with the dog.
