Charlie our Springer Spaniel

Postby 499BC » Sun October 27th, 2013, 5:14 am

This young man has us wrapped around his paws:

Here he is about to take off (ear assisted flight):

And watching over me in the veg garden; physical labour is clearly below his station:

He's now 8 years old and just recovering from 3 years of illness (from Lyme disease). A very calm (for a Springer), affectionate and easy to train dog. I barely ever have to put a lead on him (and then only for his safety) as he's so good.

What a beautiful dog. I love Springers.

Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

He is just gorgeous, and you have captured some wonderful moments in these pictures!
