Abel - was
a happy chap!
was a very happy fellow and seemed to enjoy life to bits. He was
constantly on the move and never turned down a good run-about with
his fellow-mates in the kennel. Water was his element and retrieving
his speciality. Everything could be carried and retrieved - balls,
shoes, waterbowls (preferably with water), rabits, pheasants, dummies,
bottles, buckets - yes, just name it! In the show ring he was full
of joy and loved to show himself . As a conclusion "Abel"
was a very happy and lively cocker. He was not showed so often but
enough to received the titles of Swedish and Norweigan Show Champion.
fun in every form!
Abel loved to be helpful
with every task preferably including things thrown in some way.
Every year we get quite a lot of snow, at least a few times every
winter - and did this cocker love this! When we tried to showel
the snow away he seemed to think that he was very helpful as he
wanted to take part in every single time the snow was thrown away.
It was actually rather annoying to have the dog on the showel when
the mission is to clear the ground from the snow as quickly as possible.
Abel himself didn't seem to understand that his eager to be helpful
was not always appreciated. A good play with his kennelfriends in
the snow was another thing that he never refused to participate
Abel had full attention on the snow that is showeled away.

On the 14th of December 2006, Abel became suddenly sick and underwent
surgery for an invagination of the bowel on the 15th. He recovered
well from the surgery but on the 16th complications occurred and
he died in the night to the 17th. Although I have had quite a few
dogs over the years, I have never felt such a great loss of any
as I do of Abel. His great character made him so special to me.
I really, really miss him...
