    Hi everyone,
    I don't actually own a Labrador but three spaniels! Two beautiful springer girls, Alice and Caddie, and Murffi a young working cocker who is a rescue dog. I love gundog training, both springers have completed grade one, two and three of The Gundog Club, and I now work my dogs on several local shoots here on Exmoor.
    I will try and put up a photo of my trio.

    Hi Heidrun!

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    Lovely to see your trio. They are beautiful! (especially Alice of course!) :)
    Hope you are not snowed in down there on the moors!

    Do you know the breeding of your rescue cocker? She is very pretty.

    Pippa

    Hi Pippa,

    Thanks for the welcome! No snow here on Exmoor, thank God.
    The cocker is a he, with the most spectacular pedigree. I have his KC papers, he was bred by Mr Peter Jones and his sire is Maesydderwen Scimitar. He came to me last summer when he was a year old after 3 (!) failed pet homes. He is a real handful but training him is huge fun. Caddie totally ignores him but Alice adores him.

    Hi Heidrun, and welcome!

    So lovely to see Alice all grown up - I remember her as a tiny puppy!

    Hi Sam,
    Thanks for the welcome. It is really hard to believe that Alice will be 5 this year! Here she is competing in a working test.

    Oh goodness - that makes me feel really old! :( :)

    That's a lovely picture - a really nice sharp action shot. Clever dog - and clever photographer too!
