I love my dogs and think they are beautiful animals. Having had springers most of my life, these two are not the typical looking springers and I don't think you would find their pictures in the dictionary (or Wikipedia) as a definition of the breed. But my friend's dog, Jazmine, is the picture that comes to my mind when I think of springers. Again, I'm not taking anything away from my dogs, but Jazmine represents the breed so well. Of course, she is quite a handful especially when compared to my two easy going pups.
