And that is our very merry, happy go lucky English Cocker Spaniel description. This is a dog as with all dogs
should be treated with respect. Please I beg you do
NOT buy puppies from Pet Shops etc, Please instead could
you please call a responsible, reputable, reliable, knowledgeable, Breeder, They
KNOW what they are doing, &
are very concerned about all their puppies okay?, &
I KNOW that they will be only to eager to help you with your
puppy.

To be honest if you knew what we know, you'd think more than twice before buying your puppy from an
unknown source. A Jolly good breeder has so many pros going for them plus the fact you KNOW where your
puppy came from, the list of pro's for the good breeder's is endless. Please if you have brought or intend to  buy a
puppy as a pet then please get your pet, Spayed /Neutered. You'll be doing an awful lot of people & dogs a very
big favour, plus as sure as the Heavens fly over us all, the intolerable sad heartbreaking death rate of unwanted
dogs nationwide will be drastically reduced if not stopped altogether.

Here's bidding you all a fond farewell for now.
May God Bless & Keep You All Safe,
May the winds always be warm at your backs,
Dai duit, Lotsa Celtic love,
Yours a lady O' Erin, Patti {[x}}
