Funny you mention that. We had two family dogs growing up, both black cocker spaniels. The first was a male, Kipper. When we lived in the Canal Zone, Kipper had iguanas as playmates. Not really, they just bit him when he tried to play with them.
The second Cocker was a female named Coley (with an obvious nod to "coal"). She used to love to run...and climb trees!
Yeah, Knickie (Knick-Knack) is a lapdog. Loves to give kisses with her extremely long tongue. She's a runner too. Loves to run. Say "bird" or "squirrel" and she's hot
Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread. Love
