Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.

As the rains came down and the floods came up all around the City of Houston, people and animals were evacuated by the thousands. As the boat came to rescue Sammy's family, they weren't about to leave him behind so he was tossed in the boat and taken to safety along with his family. His home was devastated and his family was forced to go live with relatives. With no relief in sight, Sammy was sadly returned to the Cocker Inn. He had been adopted from us previously and as promised, he was returned to us when they could no longer care for him. Sammy had been with his family for six years and is very sad about losing his the only security he has ever known. He is now 7 years old and finds himself in search of a new home. He's been the baby of the family and used to getting all of the attention so he prefers to be an only dog.

If there were a "Hard Knocks" award, Sammi Sue would win, hands down. She was dumped at a shelter because " she escapes and she is blind in one eye. Afraid she is going to get hit by a car." Mmmmm, in her foster home she has never escaped because she is an inside dog. She loves going outside and is always the last to come in because there is so much to explore. Indeed she is blind in one eye. Our ophthalmologist theorized her left eye had been injured a while back that was not treated. She has a cataract in the other eye which is dissolving. She has light perception in that eye which makes her very adept at avoiding furniture, walls and other large objects. Her foster mom is not sure Sammi Sue knows she is vision impaired because she tears around the house and yard. On intake, Sammi was also underweight, her coat was dry indicating she had poor nutrition and she was heavy heartworm positive. Sammi Sue has a darling personality, loves attention, is housebroken and crate trained. She is around four years old and is a black and tan cockapoo. If you are looking for a devoted companion, Sammi Sue is the dog for you.

There's always room for one more, right? At least that's McGraw's story and he's stickin' to it! McGraw is an exceptionally affectionate little guy who will jump up in his foster mom's lap, even if said lap is already occupied. If there are two Cockerkids currently there, he plows right in and makes his way to the back to be sure that he is the closest one to her heart. At only 8 years old, he is in the prime of his life. This sweet boy has an abundance of love to give and loves to follow his human everywhere. He's so happy that he even has a smile on his face.....really! McGraw is truly crem de la crem.

Ray Charles.....Stevie Wonder....Andrea Bocelli...and Louie! Do you know what they all have in common? They are all blind and but make sweet music with their hearts. When Louie moved from a nearby shelter to the Cocker Inn, he was in very poor shape. He was matted from head to toe and his eyes were a mess. But once he cleaned up and the eye infection cleared, we discovered a totally awesome little guy! Apparently blind since birth, he has never had vision so he learned to uses his other senses and he functions just like any others. He is totally house trained and uses a doggy door just like the rest of his foster brothers and sisters . Once he acclimates to his environment, you would never know that he is blind. He loves a good romp in the yard as well as well as yummy chew on his dog bones. This sweet boy gets along with absolutely everyone! You know what would make him a perfect family dog? He can't see to chase a family cat so we could safely say that he is cat friendly.

"Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops are made out of rubber, their bottoms are made out of springs."
-A. A. Milne

Meet Tigger. T-I-Double Guh-Er. While our Tigger is not as bouncy as the one from A. A. Milne's Winnnie the Pooh books, they share the same joyful attitude. Tigger is a 1 year old Doxy Cocker mix who came to the Cocker Inn by way of a Louisiana shelter. He is a small (12.8 lb) bundle of cuteness and love. His favorite activities are playing with the other dogs in his foster home and cuddling with his foster mom. Tigger is a gentle boy who loves other dogs, people (including children) and cats. But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers - is he's the only one!

Howdy folks, Rosco P Coltrane here (but you can call me Rosco) and I'm in hot pursuit of a new home. I made my way to Houston from the great state of Louuuuuuuisiana. Folks in these parts don't see many sable boys like me so I'm a pretty hot item if I do say so myself. Now when I tell ya I love to play ball, yer dern tootin that I mean it. I like to snuggle too but don't tell anybody about my soft side. There ain't no going potty in the house either cuz I prefer to find me a good tree outside. Now when I tell ya to scoot, I mean scoot cuz I'm not gonna be around long.

Trixie is out of the Cocker Inn's medical wing, and ready to move to a forever home. She made a six hour trek from northwest Louisiana to join the CockerKids. In addition to being heartworm positive and skinny as a rail, she had an upper respiratory infection and sarcoptic mange. Her respiratory infection is gone and the mange has cleared up. She is three years old, crate trained and sweet as sugar.

Noelle has a song in her heart. Despite being sight impaired and having a bad hip, Noelle's spirits jumped when the CockerKids invited her to leave a shelter to move to the Cocker Inn. Don't let her vision problems deter you from considering adopting Noelle. Bring Noelle into your home and enjoy Christmas all year round.
I see trees of green, red roses, too,
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

When we look at these beautiful girls, we can't help but think what a wonderful world it would be if we could find a loving home for them where they could stay together. This mother/daughter pair has been together since Daisy was born and they are very bonded. Sable, the mother is a 7 year old black and white merle parti who absolutely adores her chocolate and white merle daughter, 6 year old Daisy. They are great with adults, kids and other dogs but Daisy is a bit too interested in her kitty friends. Sable is a good mom, constantly checking on Daisy. And like most moms, she can be a bit overprotective at times but that's most likely Daisy is visually impaired but loves to run, jump and climb. These darling girls came to us from a local shelter and you couldn't ask for a sweeter, more cuddly pair.
