    What is a golden cocker spaniel? Golden as in a buff cocker spaniel? Golden isn't a cocker colour.. or are we talking golden retriever x cocker cross?

    Colour shouldn't equal any difference within the breed.

    I'd want to see CERF testing on the parents, there are a load of eye issues, patellas checked, OFA suggests hips, though it's not as big a deal..

    I want a breeder breeding for amazing temperaments as there are too many skeazy bybs breeding nasty dogs..

    And I want to see titles.. even if its therapy dog certification and obedience titles as a minimum.

    No worries.. I figured, but thought I'd ask. It was possible we were talking golden crosses :)

    Vaccine reactions are slowly becoming an issue.. I hear of a lot of allergies and endless ear infections.. I'd want few to none in the lines she's contemplating.

    My 2 have each had an ear issue once in their lives. One got mites, the other a bacterial infection.
