When we were looking for a springer spaniel puppy about eighteen months ago we chose this one. The breeder warned us he was a character. Since we brought him home he’s certainly lived up to that description. He made me realise how laid back the previous two were. I think these shots reflect his attitude.
Some shots from a Sunday morning walk with the dogs. Splat playing, then resting on the way home and then at home after having had his breakfast.
Splat has two gears, stop and full pelt. We are learning to make the most of the quiet times. It’s like the calm before the storm. During his quiet times he looks so angelic it’s easy to forget how naughty he can be. Fifteen weeks and he’s learned how to use those big brown eyes to maximum effect.
Today was Splat’s first trip out. We went to Malvern Common where Jack and I saw some old friends and Splat made some new ones. His new best friend is Teddy.
We had a delivery from Amazon which was packed with lots of paper. Splat appreciated the excess packaging.
He played with it for about half an hour.
Our house has been very quiet for the last three or four weeks, but no more …
An eight week old English Springer Spaniel puppy is impossible to ignore and raises the energy levels to a new height.
Pets are great company and great fun. This is Tyke. He has suddenly taken to lying on one sofa and giving whoever is on the other this look.
I’ve obviously not done something ….
Having missed last month’s post I can’t believe how quickly this has come round. I wasn’t sure what to post this moth until fate intervened. The shots below show my springer spaniel Splat. We had fun for six years, he got me through some challenging situations and its amazing what you can learn from a dog.
I’m surprised I have so many photos as he didn’t like the camera and would move away when I got it out. He loved to play fetch with a tennis ball and to race the German Shepherd, Jack. Some of the shots I’ve used before and there are some new ones and few oldies I found in my archives.

One of the benefits of my job is its flexibility, enabling me to work at home when I need to. Having worked at home a few afternoons this week, I was amused by how my dogs just settle down and sleep. Today I had my camera beside me with my Lensbaby Burnside lens and I tried to capture them at different points in the afternoon.
It was a productive afternoon.
