Cocker Spaniels love to “flush” birds out of ground cover and my dog Cocoa Joy is pure Cocker through and through.

The other morning while I was photographing Spring flowers in the back yard, I noticed that she was watching a family of Blue Birds in a near-by wild honeysuckle bush. The birds return each year and end up having at least three brews by the end of each May. They have very little concern for Cocoa and have never altered their daily routine because of her presence.
