Bred since the 14th century, Spaniel breeds take their name from a presumed Spanish origin, with the ‘cocker’ denoting their role in hunting woodcocks. Up until the 20th century the Cocker Spaniel was only distinguished from other Spaniels by weight. They have tremendous energy as puppies but are typically gentle and loving toward children.

One of the most interesting things about Cocker Spaniels is their great variation in coat color, which can include solid black, tan, red, liver and golden, as well as combinations of these colors. A pure white coat is the rarest but can occur through selective breeding. Cocker Spaniels have a higher incidence of ear infections from microorganisms because of their large, drooping ears and may require more care than other dogs. It is well worth the almost endless companionship and cuddles these dogs bring into your home.

Remember this calendar comes with a free download of the DogDays calendar app! In addition to being a great personalized calendar, it also comes with puzzles and games where you can unlock adorable dog images!

Related to the Newfoundland, Labrador Retrievers were originally almost all black in color. Chocolate and Yellow specimens were not favored (we can’t understand why!) and didn’t become distinct breeds until more recently. We and many happy pet parents are happy they did!

Basset Hounds

Basset Hounds

Basset HoundsThe Basset Hound is another dog breed available on the DogDays App. With its broad ears, low stature and distinctive folds of skin, the beautiful Basset Hound is one of the most recognizable dogs in the world, but also for me it is one of the most iconic American pet breeds. When I hear ‘puppy-dog eyes’ or ‘a boy and his dog,’ Bassets are the image that appears in my mind.

Like its’ forerunner, the Bloodhound, the Basset Hound has its origins in Europe as a scent-hound and tracking dog, and it’s name actually comes from the French word bas, referring to its short legs. Their longstanding popularity and usefulness in this country, however, have secured this breed’s image as the loyal companion to the American family.

3 Basset HoundsWith sensitive smell second only to the Bloodhound, the Basset Hound is today still valued for its ability to track prey. The loose, hanging skin of its face, in addition to giving the animal the sad and expressive look that I love, can actually trap a scent and aid it in locating the source. For a combination of gentle companionship and old-world usefulness, the Basset Hound can’t be beat!
