Fantastic! What a gorgeous, happy ear flapping boy! My old blue cocker is far too restrained for all that puppy dashing about now but I remember it fondly (don't envy you the mud tho!) smile

We have just moved. It used to be the beach he would get his gong walks but by the time we sould get home the sand had just fallen off. Now we live near a river, castle and forests so walkies are much more exciting and mucky lol

Looks much like the place I took my dog today ! Roll on the big freeze at least there'll be less mud.

Gorgeous! I have a 9yr old springer - the muddier he is, the happier he is!

Omg he is the exact image of my Poppy, but a more boyish face if that makes sense. Hate to tell you but it'll get worse. Poppy loves finding the muckiest puddle and rolling in it with a big smile on her face lol. Merlin is gorgeous btw.

I have a cocker/springer cross, so I feel your pain <weeps at muddied kitchen, hallway, living room, sofa....>

My golden lab pup gets so muddy but she loves being out so much it outweighs the inconvenience of having to clean her. Sea or forest she loves them all! The muddier and smellier the better. I luffs her. xx

Despite the mud I still have massive dog envy!!! I plan to get a cocker puppy later this year - can't wait! <<<here's hoping 2013 is a bit drier than 2012grin>>>

I feel your pain also. I have two Springers who love nothing more than wallowing in a muddy puddle hmm.

I don't think my kitchen/dinning room have been mud free all year because of the rain. No matter how many times I mop the floor, they manage to get it dirty again before its even finished drying.

Wouldn't be without them though grin

Yes, I have a Springer and a Sprocker and it has been a mud fest here too. My Sprocker is quite shaggy, she has more of a cocker coat, and I did buy her a drying coat whcih gets rid of a lot of it plus she looks immensely cute in it

Definitely feel your pain! We have a blond mini labradoodle with massive curls who spends half her life black and the other half wet from the dreaded bath. Our house is never mud free!

laptop - Drying coat you say? Pray, tell me more....

Our cocker puppy is black so the mud doesn't show up! Doesn't stop him spreading it everywhere though.....

I've just uploaded a picture of my 5 month old golden cocker taken on a walk last week.

He's not that keen on being rubbed down or brushed, at home, but he's an angel for the groomer.
