We have 5 English Springers and I will be adding pictures of them. I was wondering if anyone else on here had kids I mean dogs?

Ours is now 11 years old and has been a great pet. They are know as the "velcro dogs" because they will not leave their owners. Very loving and back when I could hunt pheasants she was an excellent hunter. She loves to ride on anything and will swim out into the lake for a ride on a jet ski. Lawn mowers, 4 wheelers, and she has even tired to get in the plane with me but I haven't taken her up yet. She has never growled at the grand kids and they have had it coming. We also have a Jack Russell and they are total opposites and the best of friends.
On the negative side, she sheds like crazy and we find that fine fur everywhere. Her feet are like mops and drag everything in the house. My Wife's idea for her to be inside not mine. Won't go two steps farther than she has to to relieve herself.
On the whole, English Springer Spaniels make excellent pets and companions.

Drag the photo onto our desk top. Go to reply and down at the bottom right corner click more options. Down in the lower left click attach files, choose file and go from there. Once you get that far it's pretty easy.

Honest to God guys, all I did was place the magazine in her lap as she lay up against the back of the chair. She actually put her paw on the book........ Then I put the hat on her head and she started to fall asleep! I have other incredible photos of her in her reahlm. She is the mother to the two pups and is a real character!

We have 2 German Shepard puppies,10 months old. Training has started and we welcome the learning for us and them. They are great dogs. This was one of those rare times we had snow!

One of our all time favorite dogs was a German Shepard. My daughters G.S. has been bred and my Wife is trying to talk me into another one. I'm a little hesitant to have another big dog. Especially since I know it will end up being my dog. My Dog is the Jack Russell and I wonder how she is going to take a big dog in my life. She is very protective of me.

Chris that could be a challenge. Terriers are my favorite dogs, they are a little hard headed, too smart for their own good and they all think they are 10 ft tall and bulletproof.
