My name is Amber and I'm around 13 or 14 years old. No one knows for sure because Mom picked me up at the human society about nine years ago. I had been groomed just before this picture was taken and I am showing off my new bow. Mom took me to a new groomer and I had never had bows put on me before, she thought I looked so pretty. I am very special even though I live with four cats, Casper, Patches, Gizmo and Cleo. ~Monica

Adorable little Amber! You do look very pretty. I love those soft, silky ears.

What a nice spaniel. When I was little we had a cocker spaniel just like this pretty baby. Ours was named Freckles and I know she wouldn't have tolerated living in a house with cats, so kudos to this sweet dog.

Hi Amber. What a cute little girly-girl doggie. Look at her showing off (or reconsidering) those little bows. What a sweetie.
Now tell me, is your Casper the adorable blue-eyed cat from Kat's on 3/24? And Cleo the black and white beauty we saw on 4/15?

What a hilarious expression on Amber's face! Hi Amber :-)

When our Sheltie, Geni, got older, my Mom started taking her to a groomer and she always came back with a bow. Mom and Dad would leave it on for an hour or so and then take it off.

Hi Amber! So good to finally see Amber as we've heard about her before. I've always liked Spaniels. Such a variety in the breed. A good friend of the family used to have one named Puppy. I'd spend the night there and me and Puppy (not a puppy tho) were best of buds. Love your bows Amber!

Monica, Amber is so cute! I love the "puppy dog eyes" that she's giving the camera! Her bows are so sweet. I've only ever had boy dogs and they were always big dogs. Not the kind that could get away with bows. Have you read the book, it's a children's book, "Widget?" It's about a dog who goes to live in a house full of cats. It's a hoot! You would get a kick out of it. OK, now we just need to see the other two cats.

Funny, for a while, I couldn't even get on the net. Maybe all the severe weather we're having....

All girls need pampering....
Lord knows Gheeri gets it, lol

BTW, just noticed...doesn't Amber look gorgeous for being 13 or 14 years old!!!! Don't know what that is in dog years, but she is one young-looking little pup.

Thank you so much GS for putting Amber on your site. Yes Mary Lynn Amber goes with Casper and Cleo that has been posted.

I took Amber to the vet not long ago as I was overreacting to her growths on her body. He said, "does she eat, poop, pee and still get around," I said yes, he said she is doing just great for a 140 year old lady. He also said that the growths just come with age......also she does get her way with those puppy dog eyes.

Kim I will have to check on that book "Widget" sounds like a great story. Casper, Patches and Gizmo were here already when I brought Amber home. Like I said before Amber has nothing to do with the cats. Patches tries to love her up and she more or less ignores her. Patches looks so cute when she does that to Amber.

Thanks all so much for your comments. Also sorry for getting on here so late.

Have we seen Patches and Gizmo yet???
Bear is my poodle, she is 16 years old, she has the smaller little age "warts". A friend has a Schnauzer (know that is misspelled), it has the large growths. The Schnauzer's name is Ziggy and he is 17 years old. He is Bear's boyfriend. Kinda like I think Casper and Missy would go together. It is late, 'night all.

No Patches and Gizmo has not been sent in. Patches kind of looks like Cleo but she has more white on her and she is the smallest of my cats. Gizmo is my daughters cat.

I had a terrier mix that lived to 18 years and he didn't get any growths or warts. I have had pets most of my life and Amber is the first one that has gotten anything like this. Guess I just love her as long as I can and not worry about it.

It's almost 9 PM here so guess it is late back there. Good night fuzz pack

I'm really sorry but I have to change the age on Amber. Don't know where I got the 140 doggy years. Vet said she was a 90 year old lady. Was almost asleep when ooops, eyes popped open, you got the age wrong. So I will say Good night again and try to get to sleep.
