Thistle & Harley the English Springer Spaniel

Well we first had a ESS called Holly but she passed away last yr (friday 13th of all days) and he mother was called Thistle.


We first went to get a L&W ESS and but they only had boys and we had only ever had bitches and I was adamant that I would not come back with one unless I really wanted him/her, we were just going for a look but we came back with one and named him Harley after hubbys love of motorbikes and it sounds a bit like Holly.

Two days later we were looking at Harley and thought he needs a play mate so we went back and got his sister a B&W and we named her Thistle after our old dogs mum.

We really should have called her Thorn though as she is always getting prickled and on every walk we can comb her after and find little thorns stuck in her body!

They are semi gundogs, they live as pets in the house and they have toys (Harley sleeps with a ball in his mouth!) even though Thistle is not one for toys but as soon as hubby gets the gun out Thistle changes and she jumps in the car and will retrieve birds and flush birds and rabbits out and will even go in the water which isn't one of the things she would do on a walk. Harley is a typical boy and has not taken to the gun as well as his sister but he would be great for retrieving and he LOVES the water.
