Awe, she is soooooooooooo cute! I love cockers.
The first dog that was really mine was a cocker spaniel. I bought her with my own money when I was sixteen. I had been begging my parents to let me get a dog to show in 4-H for several years. My grandmother finally persuaded them to allow me to get her, lol. She was nearly the same color as your Shasta, but a little lighter. Her name was Jewel. I did train her and show her in 4-H, and later I also showed her in AKC obedience trials. She was very sweet with me, but when my older sister had a baby, she was not trustworthy around the crawling baby. At that time, I also discovered that she was not actually trusthworthy around anyone crawling. Somehow, crawling people scared her.
Later, as a very young adult, I had a sheltland sheepdog named Shasta. I love that name.
