I lost my beautiful golden cocker spaniel, Parker, to old age on October 3rd, 2014. Impossible to write that without tears coming, during his life hwe was very loved and cared for but I did not fully realize how much loved until I lost him. He was my shadow, my dear boy, always right beside me. He never bit, snapped or growled at me even in very stressful moments. He was a scamp too, could never train him to be good on leash, what a food gobbler too! Dragged frozen chickens off counters, tried to eat whole loaves of bread at one gulp and in one memorable moment got to so much dark chocolate he had a to spend a night in emergency, His jumping skills were truly amazing. I have since found a cocker puppy to bring into my life and while wonderful I know it will take some of ime before she is a partner of my heart. Love you and miss you so much still my golden boy, Parker.
