She is growing, for such a small dog I am surprised that she weighs 10 Kg already. She can now swim as well :)

My new pup.

 

Is that pup a Springer? Do many folks work spaniels in the US?

It is a Springer pup. Spaniels are a minority breed, but not uncommon. Everyone knows someone who works one, but more people hunt with pointing breeds, GSP, Setters, and Brittanies probably being the most popular. Then there is the retriever crowd. Lots of them, too. They are predominantly used for waterfowling, but there are quite a few in the uplands.

 

Amongst the spaniel people Springer are the most popular breed, but cockers are coming on strong. Other spaniel breeds are extremely rare to find in the field, and if you do prepare to be disappointed. There are enough spaniels that throughout the country there are 100+ Springer field trials each year, and probably about the same number of hunt tests.

Good to hear that! It's funny, we don't often hear of spaniel work outside of the UK.

Probably should have included a pic of my girl Ginger, too. She is the mother of the pup.
