Gecko,
No one here wants you to be upset or offended, but its the truth. Has your dog been health tested? I dont mean a regular check up, but a health test, to test on your dog what is common for the breed to become ill from, is the Corgi being health tested? I would assume not. Here is a few links to a cocker spaniel website that I think you should read. If you are truely going to breed your dog for the right reasons then everything you do is great, if your dog was a little younger that is.

There is alot of information to look up before you breed your dog. A lot you need to learn before she would have pups if that is what you decide. It isnt a small responsibility. If you breed your dog, you will have to give her all your time, and especially when the puppies come. They will need all of your time. What if the mother rejects the puppies? You will have to feed those puppies every hour or two, if thats 5-8 puppies, thats a lot of work, say it would take you 20 mins each puppy. Thats alot of time. If you have school or work, there is no way you could take all that work by yourself. Even if your parents helped, it would be a very huge responsibility. Im not trying to be rude, but by the way you speak, it shows that you are not ready to breed a dog. If what you want to see is an actual whelping, then you could call any reputable breeder, and she will show you all that a whelping requires. Its a lot of work, I hope you do a lot more research before you think about breeding your dog. For your dogs sake and the puppies.
