It really is too bad that cockers are so stupid because I love those chunky little things. My family had one, and we found out too late that we adopted her from a lady that was hoarding puppies in her basement. When the cops went to her house, they were caked in feces, and the house was just destroyed by fecal matter. I can't blame the dog for being dumb. Our next pup was a cocker mix that had been severely abused by its former owners. He was rather scarred and had anxiety issues. I suppose I could relate with him on that, but I don't going around only trusting my mother and no one else. The current family dog is not any part cocker, and he is a dream. I've met other cocker spaniels too. Shout out to Coda wherever you may be. He wasn't too bright either, and I don't think he had any prior issues. This particular dog right here is probably smart and well-behaved because he is Czech.
