Meet Alfie!!


Ha no hobby time this week! A new member of the family has joined the Quinton household 
Meet Alfie!



Alfie is a 14 week old Springer Spaniel who arrived with us on Sunday. It has been not quite the same in the house with just the one dog and everyone has been moping about and probably a bit down since we lost our younger lab Morgan back in October. Alfie has shined a light back in our lives and has certainly livened things up!



Full of beans and a lot of fun he certainly brought a smile to our face. Never had a springer before and he is comical.



Random Zoomies!


Have a good weekend folks and hopefully some sort of normal service will resume shortly :)

    1. Awesome, I never really grew up with one and Alfie is our third pooch. Wouldn't be without one if I could help it now.

    1. Yeah he is Liver and white. No he doesn't seem fussed I think he is glad of the companionship as he has been moping a bit since we lost our other lab back in October. He puts him in his place when he gets to boisterous but Alfie idolizes him and follows him everywhere.

  7. Absolutely gorgeous, we always had Springers in the house growing up and would love to have one now - sadly the distance to work would make it unfair on the dog.

    1. What a shame. I am lucky we are always in and out throughout the day so never alone for very long and they have each other when we are out.

    1. Alfie is hilariously funny but so gentle :) Having great fun training and playing with him. Though since our lab is 10 I had forgotten how its like walking spaghetti at first.

  15. You have got some work ahead of you, springers are mental, but they are absolutely amazing dogs once they calm down a little. Lovely dog :)

  16. Sooo, I'm betting that he wees everywhere and chews everything, right? It'll be quite a disruption to your household if I'm even half right on this...

    1. Not really he was well house trained when he came to us (One of the previous owners was highly allergic quiet sad really) apart from excited wee's he goes out in the garden. (There will be accidents of course) chewing hmm yes a little but he has plenty of toys to and bones occupy him.
