    ...paws you can see that he has 'size', but he is a great dog....Hello Bailey!

    Coming from Derbyshire, the family had a LOT of Border Collies, but sometimes English Springers.

    More dogs to come in the future....

      Prime Ministers, Sir John Major, whose English Springer I first "noticed."

      Look forward to "the dogs to come."  

      Hope you get to throw in a "mixed breed," on occasion, if you should run into one at your airshows.  We lost our terrier-mix a year ago this month, who become our "second Dog-of-a-LIfetime," along with our first Springer.

      Thank you for the background on Daisy.  She is a 'doll.'  You can see her sweet and gentle disposition in her eyes.  

      Her little, fine-boned frame is like our first (field) Springer's frame.  She only weighed 35-37 pounds in her prime (which is definitely more than Daisy, but quite small for her breed).

      Cheers back atcha.  :-)
