Hello anyone reading. I am a young teenager and am hopefully very close to getting a puppy (spring / cocker spaniel hopefully.) Just saying hello. My username is Soter cos' that is what i will call my future dog. Soter is the name of an ancient greek dog who heroicly saved a city from distruction by warning the citys inhabitants. Pretty noble isn't it. Maybe my dog will live up to that name one day.
From Soter, a serious dog lover :dog:

Hey Soter, a warm welcome to you! You'll find lots of great info here on all kinds of pet-related issues. I have a link that you should check out during your quest for a new puppy. It tells you all about the things you need to know BEFORE you get your puppy, how to pick out the best puppy for you, all sorts of training tips and videos...... It's my favourite one-stop-shopping website for all things doggie: http://www.dogstardaily.com/
Like Ford Girl said, puppies are a huge amount of work. You definitely want to be prepared!

Welcome to the board Soter! I think it's great you're on here and gathering info before you get a pup - a lot of people get one and think "Oh crap, how do I...." There's so much to it it's great to be well-prepared beforehand. :thumbs up

Welcome, Soter! My first dog (about half a century ago) was a cocker spaniel. They're great dogs! My cocker actually saved my life, so "Soter" sounds like a great name to me.

Spaniels are the best! :D
