In Turkey, cocker spaniels are called 'cooker', thus the name cookies for these four eatable siblings. How we got them: Five years ago, the owner of their mother left his pregnant dog in the care of the vet for several months when he was abroad. As payment, she -the vet- could keep the pups.
For months we could hear the puppies crying behind a door when ever we went to the vet with one of our dogs. She complained that they keep her awake at night and she only had suceeded in selling one of them. Finally I couldn't resist and made a deal with her: we would care for the pups and she could sell them from our home and we would keep two of the girls for our trouble.
The vet was more than happy with the deal and the door went open to reveal a totally dark room and seven filthy two months old puppies. They all had diarrea because she kept them on a bread and milk diet, despite the fact that she sold all brands of dog food.
She sold three puppies from our house, so we kept two girls and two boys, more than we had bargained for, but what the hell they are the sweetest. And the vet? After this she wasn't our vet any more. Who wants a vet who mistreats animals?
This is Toffee or Toffee Cake. In the beginning both boys were called Toffee because we couldn't keep them appart, but as adults he and his brother Earnie are totally different in looks and caracter.
Toffee is a good soul, a bit aloof, sweet to the point of boring and extremely tolerant with the rest of the pack.
