Our Springers that are gone but not forgotten.
In the early 1980’s I found my first Springer soul-mate. Her name was Mesquite Wine CDX, CGC. A Liver/White female from a friend. She past away just 2 months after her 16th birthday. She will always be missed. Mesquite did produce a litter years ago that was the start of my hobby kennel. We kept two beautiful puppies from her, Fred and Shayna.

We went to matches for conformation and later found that Freddy really liked obedience which we were taking at the time. A woman that came there to watch every week fell in love with his sister, Shayna, and wanted her for a pet. They were both altered and Shayna went to that place while I kept Freddy for my son. My son had more time to devote to Fred and put Freddy’s Companion Dog title on him. Then I took him further to Companion Dog Excellent and started training in Utility. He was also a great field dog and would flush, and retrieve fowl game in land and water. Sadly, he passed on at 15 years of age.
My foundation for most of the Springers I have to this date. Easily trained, never chewed, and best behaved. Most perfect dog I’ve had.
