Title: Think I got mugged last night!
Post by: Aidy on January 31, 2021, 09:46
For several years now I have thought about a new family member, I love springer's, mad, energetic just like me,wife always said no  :mad:

To my surprise last night both my wife and two daughters came in while I watching footy, my time  >:(
"dad can we have dog"?
Joking I said "yea, needs to be a springer tho (knowing full well that will be the last of it)"
Ok... "what about these springers"
 :ohmy:
Big possibility the new mad family member may be coming after all in early March

Well we had a chat with the breeder, he invited us round to view the boys (social distance of course) outside.
We had a chat, he trains gun dogs and has bred Labs but never Spaniels, first time. He showed us the paper work of his dogs, it appears grandad was an Irish gun champ and Grandma was a English champ so by all accounts good pedigree, we also met mum and she was lovely.
So come March the 6th we pick up...
Lake

His daughter kindly took the photo when back inside the house for us.

We keep our mobile caravan in storage at a farm, they also have a caravan site which of course we use a lot, some friends put us on to it a few years back.
They also put some other friends onto it and we met them last year, they have a cocker called.... River
So me daughter suggested Lake as they will be fingers crossed good friends.

Lake is home and showing the world how docile English Springer Spaniels really are, not that energetic, mad, bonkers breed the press have made them out to be  ???

Tuff love mind man. We had a springer. Luckily man of house was a gentle but very firm hand with dogs. We had a mad but very obedient springer. If it hadn't been nicely trained man of house would have been deep in trouble.
