    Our super cute sprocker Cody is 10 months old now and still gorgeous. So lovely in fact that we have decided to get a second pup to keep him company and make sure we both get cuddles at the same time (not great at sharing :) )

    We likely pick up our (as yet unnamed) chocolate and white sprocker on 21st May (born on good Friday)

    Mum is a B&W sprocker and Dad is a lovely Springer and both have perfect (for us) temperaments.

    Tres excited

    Don't let the sprocker lead the other one astray.........they are quite characterful dogs ;)

    When we got the cocker the springer was about 14 months old and everyone was asking me if I was brave or stupid.

    I'm still not sure what the answer was o_O:D

    Would add a bit of interest to the meets, though.

    .....we could teach him bad language :)

    Jake is ten and still mad. Our last springer lived until 13 and was still mad........

    When we went to get our first flat coated retriever, upon telling the breeder that we had springers she just said "that's ok then. If you can handle a springer, you can handle any gundog and you'll realise how much easier it will be"

    That's pretty much right. I still love springers though.

    This one has pretty much the best temperament of any dog I've ever had but he's still a handful to work. The cocker is easy in comparison.
