Hello OBG, This is Cosette. You know me as Darby, the smallest of the Shamrock Six. I’m all grown up now and am nearly 30 pounds! I may not look like a cocker, but I am a true wiggle butt. I shake my entire body all over when I greet someone. This is quite difficult because my tail is almost as long as my body and swishes in circles when I wiggle.
I love to play fetch, especially when my Mom throws the ball really far in the dog park. I have lots of toys, and when I get a new one I pull out all the stuffing until I get the squeaker. Toys are fun even when the stuffing is gone, but I think it is the most fun to throw all that white suff all over the room. For some reason, though, I don't get toys with stuffing anymore. So, one time, I found a pillow that had lots of feathers in it and I threw them all over the room. I don't know why my Mom was so unhappy. It was really a lot of fun!
I go to school, called obedience class, where I teach my mom how to give me treats when I sit, lie down, and do other stuff. I almost passed the Canine Good Citizenship Test, but they said I should not have jumped up on the instructor. I just can’t help myself! I might try again, but it’s going to be really hard not to jump – people are so tall and I want to say hello!
Love and Licks, Cosette
(P.S.: I heard about the horrible way the Be Mine Nine were treated before OBG rescued them and it makes me feel sad. I am so lucky that OBG rescued me as a puppy so I didn’t have to go through that and I'm so happy OBG saved them too. In honor of my birthday, I asked my Mom to make a donation to help them. I hope others will do the same thing!)
