Sally, I had springer's,(liver & white)- 2 actually. not at the same time though,omg..they have soo much energy!,some of the greatest dogs ever. Had named them: Elmer J. Fudd & Tracker. Both where the most excellent hunting dogs, Tracker-better of the two. Now I have a 5lb.Pomeranian..don't know how that happened, well..yes I do, kids are gone and needed some thing else to hold. Anyway, hubby says he has a good nose & maybe we should train him.. I don't think so, could you imagine..the squirrels would carry him back up the tree.
