Well that's pants advice from them isn't it!! You would have thought they would help you.
No more dogs (or at least house dogs anyway) for us when these two have passed. I'm not sure Lilly could swim this far anyway
The other half may get a cocker spaniel as a gun dog at a later date but it will be an outdoor working dog and not living in the house.
Cocker Spaniel? Sorry. Maybe they breed them better over there, but Over here, they have so many health problems, love to bite kids, are stupid. No hunting genes left. What about a Springer?
