You sound like a really responsible and caring breeder. I adore my springer, but have now got 2 Goldies and a Bulgarian rescue cross terrier ...and our 3 cats so am at capacity. Will look forward to seeing the pic though and I'm sure they will all get great homes.
Thank-you Vicky for your kind words, we adore our Springers also which is returned tenfold, as you are a Spinger enthusiast a little story from yesterday, I also have bantams which roam around the paddocks with our horses and dogs all living in harmony together
but as it was too hot for the dogs I put the dogs in. At 4 pm a squark came from he bantams of which we ran outside to check on them and disturbed a Bonelli`s Eagle from capturing our handsome cockerel, a magnificent bird of prey and very rare ( we are birders ) ......after the eagle took off, we set about a Bantam count, finding all but one small this years hen, we couldnt find her anywhere, believing that she was possibly taken earlier in the day ? after half an hour past and given up on her return I let the dogs out and Bob ran straight to a pile of tree prunings scented the edge and stood on point then ran to me and back to the pile again....as if to say here it is Mum , I called my husband whom with a fork lifted the prickly cuttings for me to look under, there she sat ridgid, what amazed us was How did Bob know we were looking for her ? he doesnt normally bother with the Bantams as they sit under bushes why this time , such a clever boy he must have sensed our distress ! Pics coming soon....pups have their eyes open now and wobbling about on legs
