Thanks for the history update, seems I missed a few things in my reading. Or perhaps, since I was concentrating on American Cocker Spaniels, it just wasn't covered in the material I have. It does explain a few things about Lady, though. Now I know why she's not afraid to dive into thickets or hurl herself down a steep bank pell-mell.
If you're green, you're growing...if you're ripe, you're rotting!
I try to greet the world like my pets do...boundless enthusiasm, intense curiosity and no concept of yesterday and tomorrow.
