I've seen an enormous change in Collin since I've had him. (It's been nearly a year now!) He is sweet, happy, and healthy and loves to follow me EVERYWHERE (typical cocker). He also loves to snuggle. He is very playful for an old dude and shows no signs of aging. He gets around just fine in spite of his total blindness. He LOVES to play with tennis balls. He usually finds a ball and tosses it around, sniffs it out then tosses it again. Really cute to watch. He doesn't mind baths or grooming either. I think he secretly enjoys both and thinks of them as a day of pampering.Collin is on a grain free diet, and since I've switched him to that his skin and health have improved 100%. He loves carrots and all the typical doggy treats. Although it only lasts for a fraction of a second, Collin can sit on command. He can also find his way around the house and in the yard quite well for a blind guy. Each morning I'm greeted by his two paws up on the side of my bed. That's his way of telling me it's time to snuggle. My bed is too high for him to jump up on but he gives it his best try and I lift him up for some quality snuggle time.Since my other dogs and my birthday all fall on holidays, we've decided to celebrate Collin's birthday on July 4th. We assume he turned 11 this year since the vet he had seen in the past estimated his age at 10. Collin's nickname is "Dude" and his friends include Topaz the Cocker Spaniel and Party the Greyhound. He tries to play with the other dogs but they don't understand that Collin is blind. They think he's being a jerk when he jumps on the couch - and consequently - another dog. Ooops!Collin hates the noise of thunderstorms and will bark...and bark....and bark. He also does not like getting his daily eye drops but tolerates it well. Collin is obsessed with the vacuum cleaner. He has been that way since I got him. Not sure what the deal is but he will follow me closer than usual when I'm vacuuming. He tries to get as close to the vacuum as he can. Go figure. He's learned his way around the house but gets off course once in a while. When that happens I just say, "watchout! watchout! watchout!" and he changes course.
