Let me say now that every picture tells a story !  The reason these photos are, to say the least, pathetic, is because we have here Springer Spaniel puppies, all male.   You try taking a photo of a Springer not on the move, especially if it has been raining for ever and you are wearing a white t-shirt ! Those of you who know the breed will be saying “OMG, four together !” because Springers are, to say the very least energetic !  They need to be occupied, busy, nearly every waking moment, otherwise be prepared to lock yourself in a darkened room.  Not selling them very well am I ?  This is because you should only adopt one if you have the time and  the patience to train him and be prepared to do it properly.  Not for you if you want a dog just to fuss, pet and cuddle.  Of course these pups will do all of that and be delighted to do so, but they will then run rings round you.  We really have to be careful where they go to as, like Border Collies they need brain stimulation.  Having painted the dark side, if you have the time to devote to  training seriously, you will be rewarded with one of the loveliest, friendliest and most devoted of dogs.
