Springer all day long!!!!!!!

I mirror below they are completely daft and great to train and loves, LOVES the kids and rest of family, mine certainly does crazy things...

Do buy one though from a working bread I got mine from West Lancs Gun Dogs, and not looked back. HArd work but great fun.. :)

Very good with kids, will work and doesn't have the weight problems that Labs can have. Also if you get a bitch they're not too large for house and car.

The only problems you might have are that they can be daft as a brush and don't ever really grow up.

Other dogs from the parents of the one I had did such things as:

Walk up and down a piano keyboard at 2 o'clock in the morning.

Chase rabbits by jumping out of a Land Rover window when the car was doing 30mph.

Mine chewed and dug through a plaster board wall to get to me when she was shut in the kitchen but she was only a pup then.

If she got fed up with kids she'd lick their faces as she knew they didn't like it!

She also liked wade or jump in water. Not clean water it had to be muddy or stagnant.

We have a lab springer cross I'm sure the modem name is a labradinger but she's a mongrel to us.
And I have to say she is the best dog I have ever had best if both worlds but probably the worse of both too!

This thread has awakened the desire to have another Springer. They are such amazing dogs, mad as a box of frogs but so friendly. It's been. Nearly three years since my Springer went and I still miss her.

Finally sorted the dog out,
Our friend bought two springers when his mother past away well low and behold the lady is ready to drop, both dogs come working lines so in a month or two our puppie will be here
best bit is all its costing us is the vet fees for nocs and chip right result

Adam-that is shit news. I might let my bitch (black lab) have another litter if you are interested let me know via PM. I will send you copies of pedigree. If you can wait, I would give you a dog for the cost of overheads. Genuine people deserve a good dog :thup:

Sorry for your loss.
