6 Weeks x 2 Cocker Spaniels =


(Compared to just 1 cocker spaniel:)

2x the Love

2x the excitement to see us when we get home

2.5x the dog food (The $43 bag I just bought better last 2 months…)

8x the dog hair on the floor

4x the energy and activity level

3x the dog hair on the furniture, bed spread and clothes

3x the accidents to clean up on the floor

2x the cuddles

2x the walks

2x the fun playing in the yard

10x the barking (Lucy never barked)

2x the ear & tear duct cleaning

2x the wet paw and wet ear wiping on rainy mornings

2x the foot warmers

I’m adapting. We’re adapting. Coco is settling in. We’re getting used to the new rhythm. I still have some mixed feelings – the rough playing gets annoying, the barking get old, the accidents are getting less and less, the shedding hasn’t decreased much. But Coco is very sweet and easy to love.
