Attached are a few pictures of Ace aka
Atticus. We are really enjoying him.
Our other dogs may disagree. They
are still trying to adjust to him. He
went to the vet this weekend and is
now weighing 15.9 lbs. He received a
clean bill of health.

intact. If she cant get it to squeak,
while holding the duck in her mouth
she hits the ground with the duck to
get it to squeak....So funny....She
loves her toy......

Greetings!! We wanted to give
you an update on how our puppy
was doing. Beau (formerly Spot)
has been a joy to our
household.....he is such a ham. I
don't know where to begin, at
first I didn't know what we had
gotten ourselves into. He is Reba
and I's first dog together and as
much as we thought we had
prepared for his arrival, he was
quite a handful the first couple of
days. As of now he is amazing; I
grew up with springers and I
have never been so amazed with
the breed as I am with this
guy......he is soooooo intelligent.
He has already mastered 5
different commands: sit, come,
fetch, lay down, and shake. I will
record some video of his
performances and send them
your way soon, I feel the
possibilities are endless with this
guy. It only took him 2 hours to
learn to lay down and he
continues to repeat it on a single
command, I can't get my parent
german short hair to lay down for
a second. He aims to please,
eager to learn and he is only 11
1/2 weeks I am very happy!
daddy's little post hole digger.
Welcome to our past litters & puppy update page!
We love to see pictures and keep in touch with our pups and their families! As a breeder it helps us to
know of issues that may arise in a line or help you with training issues if you can keep in touch with us.

He's been great and getting used to the new home and new friends. We love him!
Shamus is doing GREAT!
He is such a good puppy
with a very friendly
disposition! He is best buds
with our other dog "Button"
who is a tiny little thing. It is
hilarious to watch them
together. Shamus is now
weighing in at 18 pounds
and has mastered the
command "sit" and "shake".
We are still working on
housebreaking though!!!! :)
Thanks again Debbie for
We LOVE him!!!!
Chris and Erin
Shamus is doing GREAT! He
is such a BIG, but good boy.
It is an added bonus that we
live near Beau and his
owners. We are able to get
the dogs together so they
can release some of their
energy! :) You'll notice in one
of the pictures Beau and
Shamus celebrating their 1st
birthday! (below )One of the
shots is of Shamus and
Beau on December 3rd, their
1st birthday. :) The other
picture is of Shamus and our
other dog Button. As you
can see, they are best
friends. Do you have any
My mom is interested!
Shamus (maggie x cash Shamus & Button (Button is his mini dog friend-not a toy!)
Just wanted to let you know that
everything checked out negative with
fecal testing. He is doing great!
update: Here is Winston on his 1st Birthday. I don't know
how big the dogs from his litter got but Winston is now 75
lbs. No, he is not over weight. My Vet says that Winston is
the biggest Springer he has ever seen. Yes, Winston is 75
lbs. of pure love! (he gets it from his daddy, Rudy....pure
muscle....Rudy is 67 lbs if pure love ;)
Thought that you'd like to
know that Beau (now Rocky)
has been with us for two
weeks and we couldn't be
happier with him. he is very
smart and while energetic, has
been easy to train so far. He
also seems happy with the
arrangement. We have
attached a couple of pictures.
Mike and Georgia
Emma has been so much fun! She
has adapted very well to her new
home. She loves her ball and toy
duck... plays with them all the time.
It's amazing that she answers to us
as we've struggled to settle on a
name. She started out as Emma, then
went to Bella. Our daughter started
calling her Bella Boo and so now we
have shortened it to Boo.
Rocky aka Beau Maggie x Cash
Emma aka Bella Boo aka Boo
Zeba (aka Sugar)
is so smart ...after only one
week she now uses the
doggie door and the bell to
go potty . Her name means
"Beautiful" and she truly is !
She sits on command and
stays for a second ...it's only
been a week = ) We are
truly blessed to have this
remarkable puppy and will
send more pics soon .
Thank you !
Here are a couple of pictures of our last RV trip to Bodega Bay.
Abbie is currently enrolled in a puppy class with an AKC approved evaluator thru
Petsmart. She sits, stays, lays down, fetches and shakes her paw on command for the
most part(especially when treats are involved) Our grand-daughter loves to work

DAISEY (Rudy x Bailey)
Daisey is doing great and is getting very big.
She shakes hands, sits and goes down on command. We go
to the dog park on occasion and we take walks too. We just
built a chain link fence so she loves to roam the back yard
now. She is my little post hole digger as she gets a scent and
digs her heart out. She loves sticks and her football and her
frisbee. She loves all the people she has met so far. And she
loves to sleep the night away with us. We love her to pieces.
This is her Xmas pic, hope you enjoy her. We do.
|Beau and Shamus 1 year birthday
I just wanted to send you a few
pictures of Lily. She is doing great!
So smart and sweet. We are still
working on our leash training and
take daily walks. Her improvement
has been remarkable. We also
have a regular “puppy group” that
we meet up with several times a
week so she can run and play with
the other pups. They get a bit rough
sometimes but I swear she is
smiling the whole time! She just
loves to play keep-away from the
other dogs with the ball or Frisbee
or whatever toys are available at the
I have thoroughly enjoyed her!
Well, maybe just a little bit :~)

sooner but finding time has been
Wyatt fit right in with the family. The
other two dogs loved him almost
right away. We started working with
Wyatt to get him ready for hunting
season. Our first day out he found
a bird and retrieved it!!! Second day
out he was all business, he
finished the day with 3! We are very
proud parents!!! I attached some
pictures of Wyatt for you. I will send
more soon. Thank you so much, he
has been a blessing to have! I
hope everything is good on your

Some more great photos of Zeba! Thanks Sandi!
Zuma is doing very good. She got 2
qualifying scores in junior hunter hunt
test. She just needs two more for a title
and then we will start working on her
senior hunter title!!!!
Way to go ZUMA! Glad to see that our
springer's talents are being put to the
test! Can't wait to see more!
Maggie Mae aka Monkey Moo loves the water, as well
as trying to beat her big sister in retrieving balls. In
her spare time, she likes to toss socks up in the air,
point out wildlife in the yard, and run like the wind.
ZUMA (Bailey x Rudy)
Bentley is such a sweet boy and we love him so much! Bentley is now 70 lbs. and I see his brother Winston is a
big boy too! Our Vet. tells us Bentley is the biggest Springer she's ever seen too!
BENTLY (RUDY X BAILEY)
We love our puppy Bix (formerly Rex) from the litter of Storm and Rudy. We got him at 9 weeks and he is now 4
months old, and such a love. He loves people, especially little kids, and has the sweetest disposition. He has the
cutest face with a beautiful white stripe which ends in a heart. We've gotten to know so many neighbors because
of Bix! He is doing well on potty training (no accidents since 3 months), and because we put him into puppy
socialization classes and obedience as soon as we got him, he adores other dogs and people, and knows sit,
stay, down, and paw. We're working on his recall and on heel. He loves to go to the beach and loves playing with
other dogs. We will teach him how to swim in the next few months. Thank you for giving us such a beautiful dog
with a lovely temperament!
BIX (Storm x Rudy) This is our city boy Bix. He lives in San Francisco by the beach..... He's one lucky dog!!!
Hi Debbie - here are a few more pictures of Riggins. He's doing really well. Great temperment, loves to go on
walks, is fantastic around people, and such a great addition to our family. Although, we don't want to get such a
smart dog next time :) We HAD straight door handles around our whole house. After watching us open and close
the doors, he figured out how to open all by himself. Now we have new
round door handles that he hasn't figured out.....yet.... :)
RIGGINS (Storm x Rudy)
California's Driving Miss Daisey
(Rudy x Bailey) is one year old on
Tuesday. Here are some recent pics
of our girl at home. Her favorite things
to do are now "lets get wet", "lets
play" and "lets walk". She is doing fine
and enjoys being part of our family.
Here is our guy Bentley (bailey x rudy) with his new little sister Tilly.....I hope he doesn't mistake her
for a squeeky toy! lol
BAILEY X RUDY ~~~~~~~~>
Meet Cedar aka Cody, Isn't he just
beautiful?! His parents are looking to
add another Ca Springer member to
their family. They will be one of just 5
families that have more than one Ca
Springer in their home :)

Here are some recent pics of
Maci. She is doing great. She
loves all dogs especially her
sister Kloe. She is great with
people and loves to cuddle.
She is getting ready for
hunting season, she has been
out to the field twice. Her first
official hunt will be this
weekend. She has tons of
energy and personality. We
love her and she is a great
addition to our family.

myself ~ Debbie)

Meet Zoe aka Sadie....... She obviously has
settled right in. Her new buddy may not be so
Zoe is both a jewel and a joy. We got 5
hours of solid sleep out of her last night.
She has been in my office with me
yesterday and today and is doing great. I
run her around a bit in the morning, put her
in her pen under my desk and she sleeps
through the morning. We are catching her
cycles pretty well and have had only a
couple of accidents so far. Here are a few
pics to show you how she is doing with our
I took her to the vet today and she was
impressed with your thorough and
conscientious care for your puppies.
Good Job! Thanks again. Tom
EMMA (BAILEY X RUDY)
IS HAVING LOT'S OF FUN AND HAS BONDED WITH HER NEW BIG SISTER. SHE'S BEEN OUT TWICE WITH
US HUNTING AND LOVES IT. EVERYONE IS VERY IMPRESSED WITH HOW BIRDY SHE IS, ITS DEFINETLY IN
HER BLOOD. SHE LOVES THE WATER AND LOVES TO JUMP.

Hi Debbie! Attached in the email is a picture of Gemma and I (far right) at our second Rick Smith seminar! We attended his
seminar last week and were invited back this weekend as a guest. Even though she is only six months old, typically this seminar
is for older dogs, she is picking up everything very quickly! She's been in birds at both seminars. She was a bit hesitant at first but
she was let off lead today and allowed to chase birds and loved it! I have a feeling she's going to make a fantastic bird dog. I
couldn't figure out your picture section on your webpage but would love it if you would post it. Thanks again for a great dog! - John
Gemma and I at our second bird dog seminar given by Rick Smith in two weeks. She is turning into quite the hunter. forgive the

Cody (above & left) is the best
puppy I have ever owned! He is SO
easy to train and is wonderful with
the kids. He quickly became a part
of the family and we cannot imagine
life without him!! He loves playing in
the creek and chasing the ducks
and sliding at the park with the kids.
We have even talked about getting
another puppy from your next litters!!
Hi Debbie -
wanted to give you an
update on Riggins and
make sure you had our
new email address.
Riggins is doing
growling has stopped
and we've not seen
anything aggressive at
all. Thanks so much
for all of your great
advice. Once he knew
who was in charge, all
of the other stuff went
away. (Pack Mentality
Training!) He makes us
laugh constantly. The
kiddos LOVE their dog
so much. Kennedy
dresses him up

just shakes his
head.....where did his
hunting dot go?? :) He
loves going on
roller-blade rides with
Lucas. Right now, he's
outside playing with the
kiddos in the pool and
hot tub. We can't
believe he's about to
be a year old and he's
grown sooooo much!!
Are you planning any
kind of reunion for the
litter that live close by?
(Hope he can live down
the loss of dignity!)
If you were here right now I
would hug you. Thanks for what
you have done for me. Zoe is
the most fabulous dog in the
world. I have been able to think
back to all of the dogs I have
had, Zoe is the 11th, and Zoe
brings more joy and pleasure
to me than any other. She goes
to work with me every day and
we are together almost through
the day and night. Other than
the fact that she still pees all
over the house when she gets
excited she is a perfect dog.
She is so affectionate, happy
exuberant and at the same
time calm. She is ever ready to
snuggle and equally ready to
run and play. Other than when
she is playing with Moxie, she
makes no noise. She has slept
through the night since the 3rd
night home and stays in her
kennel quiet until you come to
let her out un the morning.
Then she goes berserk with
affection and pees on the floor.
I dropped by the vet to weigh
her today; she’s at 29.4lbs.
She was 10 when I got her.
She is the center of attention
wherever we go. I am besieged
by happy people who want to
see her. If I were'nt married I
could have a date with a
different good looking babe
every night as long as I brought
Zoe along. Attached is a
picture of her with Moxie and
one of her with her favorite
creatures. Tell your daughter
that Zoe loves the thing
(hedgehog in pic) and thanks
her for it. The other pictures are
on the hill where we hike every
She is merciless in her
harassment of Moxie. Moxie is
totally patient with her and lets
her get away with murder. She
drags on Moxie’s big feathered
tail to the point of pulling fur out.
Yet Moxie does nothing. We
even jokingly cheer for Moxie to
bite Zoe and teach her a
lesson, but she doesn’t. While
she does nothing to defend
herself when in the house,
when they are out in grass
Moxie chases her and seems
to enjoy the revenge of running
over her and tumbling her into
the ground. I hope they both
survive. Tom O.

Ryder is doing great! He was the cutest, sweetest little puppy when we brought him home. His instincts kicked
in almost instantly and he has been retrieving ever since! He has grown into a big boy, but still loves snuggling
with Mom :) He has tons of energy and loves a nice, long run. We couldn't have hoped for a better addition to
our family! He's perfect!

I wanted to take a moment to catch you up on Pepper. She is turning out to be an extraordinary and wonderful member of our family. She is absolutely beautiful and
everywhere we take her people stop us to ooo and ahh over her. Just as importunately she is sweet, smart and easy to train.
Tony takes her to an area behind a big ocean-view hotel where there is a rarely used lawn about the size of 1 ½ football fields. He lets her off leash and throws a tennis ball
pretty impressive distances. She charges after it (she loves to run at full speed up and down the small mound at one end…hopping over the tufty grass planted there… and
it is even better from her view if the rainbird sprinklers are going) and retrieves the ball, bringing it right back to his side and dropping it. Passersby always remark on what a
wonderful job Tony has done training her, but honestly she seemed to retrieve naturally and required little training. He also takes her down to the beach where she loves to
run off leash (he has to go early in the morning or near sunset or the lifeguards would ticket him for having her off leash). She runs and jumps over the low shore break and
tumbles in the wet sand. This is always followed by a backyard bath when we get home.
She seems to be completely house trained at this point (no accidents in about a week)…knock on wood. She also views her crate as the place to go without a fuss at bed
time…but only goes in during the day when something frightens her…like the vacuum cleaner or the sound of the trash trucks.
We take her with us a lot and she travels well in the car, and behaves well in dog friendly hotels and restaurants. She likes to sit up on a chair in restaurant patios and watch
everyone, and is well –behaved and does not try to get on the table or at our food.
Since we returned she seems a bit blue. At our son’s house she had a ball playing with the kids and their dog, and I think she is a bit bored to be home with just us two
fogeys. I actually went on your website to see if you had any puppies.
Hope all is well with you and all your dogs and cow. Barbara
Below is a testimonial from
Barbara who took the other
black and white girl of the same
litter to Zoe. They were the only
2 b/w girls and I am happy to see
that they are both so in love with
their choices :-)

Debbie: Thank you so much. I am getting a ton of heat from a
breeder friend for getting him neutered tomorrow. She insists I
wait until a year. He will be 5 mo 3 weeks, and I feel that he is old
She is worried about the loss of muscle and bone development,
stunting his growth and the effects of the lack of testosterone in the
developing system. She breeds show dogs and I know that world
of people tend to have a different outlook than many non-show
people. I am glad to hear your opinion as his breeder and field
hunter. Obviously you would not recommend anything that would
inhibit their hunting abilities. My vet is OK with the 6 month range,
and I trust him also. Cody is definitely an indoor dog and I did not
even think about marking in the house.
By the way you breed the BEST temperaments into the pups!!!
Cody (Duke) is the best dog I have ever owned and I am a
Springer owner for life!!!
I have him scheduled to take training classes, but he has already
mastered everything I have taught him. I am combining voice,
hand, and whistle commands. Even my 3 and 4 year old can give
him commands and he listens to them! That is more than I can
say for the kids. We are using the wings you gave us often and he
is responding well. I can’t wait to see him out in the field!! Thank
you again for the BEST DOG EVER!!!
When he takes car trips with us he always falls asleep in the
center console between the front seats. Good thing it is an
Freckles bailey x rudy
Hi Debbie~ I thought I would update you a
bit on Frecks. First he is so sweet I just
love him. I think he is adapting well. I know
he's ready for a nap when he howls with a
few cries in between. :) he defiantly fights
napping just like a child. But once he sits
still for a few seconds he's out! He is
actually really good about going potty, he'll
only go on the potty pad. He won't go #2
inside so we take very early morning walks
outside he does his business and we go
back inside. The funniest thing (I think) so
far is shadows ... He wants to get 'em!! He
growls and squats down then pounces on
them then realizes there's nothing really
there. We have a few dogs in the
neighborhood and when he hears them
bark he runs back to me. I think he's going
to be a momma's boy!! Thanks~Holly
Debbie, Hunter aka Romo is doing great. He loves going to PetSmart because he knows he's gunna get treats!!!
He listens good and was so easy to train. He gives the best hugs :). He got his first haircut yesterday and the
groomer said he was amazing with the other dogs and how he listens good. Hunter also came home with a bag of
treats and less hair. Also loves to sleep in my bed but knows hes not staying for long & hes ready to hit the lake
with his new life jacket. He is getting to be such a Big Boy now almost a year old.

DAISEY (Bailey x Rudy)
Daisey is 21 inches at the withers. She weighed 59.1 at her last visit to the vet. She is a big beautiful
girl. This summer we have taken her to Hidden Valley Lake to the special dog park where she can swim.
She had to get used to the water but can swim fine now. In the early mornings she likes to go outside
with me and roam around the yard while I drink my coffee. Then in the evenings she likes my husband
and I to go out in the back again and play with her. She is definitely a creature of habit. We love her.
Thanks again for such a great companion. Evelyn

Oops this came in a looong time ago but I
must have missed it. Cleaning out my
email I found this update on Meadow,
I just wanted to let you know
Meadow is doing beautifully.
We are in love, and we are
enjoying every moment of our
first week with her. She is really
doing so well, almost sleeping
through the night, doing great
with crate and bell training, and
already gets "sit" and "down".
What a clever girl she is!
Thank you for our beautiful,

Just a little peek at what Jet has been up to. We have a long hunting season ahead and Ill be sending more pics. I couldn't
be happier with his retrieving and everything about him, he is an awesome dog! We walked through some pretty harry
brush yesterday and no seeds in the eyes yet, but I do take everything I need to to take care of him, he's a happy pooch.
Dillon (Blue) is doing just great.
He had his Vet check up and
shots last Monday and a clean bill
As you can see from the pictures,
our almost 10 year old Sierra has
Dillon is house trained already
(9.5 weeks old!), he uses the
He is also very independent.
If no one wants to play with him
he just keeps himself entertained.
He loves to play outside. We
have 2 1/2 acres all chain link
fenced, he can run around out
there all he wants.
We are the family that bought
Cheeks (we call her Jagaer -
Jags for short).
She is a fantastic dog and
doing really well. I will send
you a photo. I have a friend
that is looking for a Springer
for her family.
Are there any puppies
Coal has been adjusting nicely. He is really well behaved. Sweet. Only a few accidents. Very very very smart.
I’m amazed how smart he is. We couldn’t have chosen better!
He has been renamed “shadow” by our sons who liked that name better I guess.
As you can read, her name has morphed in one night from Chloe to Cleo. My fault really as my brain kept thinking
'Chloe' as my mouth was saying 'Cleo'. Must be something subconscious from her to me.
We've all accepted it now as her permanent name especially after learning it is Greek for 'praise' and 'acclaim' which
she is getting a lot of! She woke us up only twice last night - once at 2 am and then at 6:30 am. We kept her in her
crate in the family room and she did cry for 10 - 15 min at 6:30 when I went back to bed, so I'm thinking of keeping her
in a crate in our bedroom only at night and only until she can go thru the night. But only (lots of onlys) if it does not
create the same crying problem when she does stay in the family room all night. So I'm a bit conflicted on this issue
as I don't want to create a future problem. We went to the Vet this morning just to introduce her to them. She will
get the next puppy shots next week.
The Vet said she looks great except for a slight vaginal discharge which he hopes will go away by itself. (not
surprising since they are on sand in the puppy playpen...the girls 'sit' to potty and get sand in there - should clear up
fine) Everyone in the practice is in love with her - she just stood there and let them take her temp, look in her mouth
and ears and maul her in general and she didn't move a hair. Of course our grandchildren had mauled her a bit the
night before holding her on their laps and she seemed to like it. She seems to understand the purpose of the bell on
the door and nosed it the first time we went out. It may have been just the novelty of it but we prefer to believe she
really is the most intelligent and perfect dog for our family. We couldn't be more pleased. Will send more pics as she
grows an learns.
Pinta is my companion. We take a 3 mile walk each day, where she takes her daily bath. She loves the kids
next door, and is the queen of our 6 acres. She is very spoiled, kind of a brat, but is very pretty so that
makes up for a lot! All in all she is just my big baby!! -Leslie
Looks like you are in Pinta's seat there Leslie!
Hi Debbie - I have been meaning for some time to e-mail you and let you know how happy we are with Bodie
(out of Moose and Dakota. Bodie was known formally I think as Little Bear). He is just a great dog for both
home and field and we could not be more pleased. Bodie went on his first pheasant hunt about two weeks
ago and was able to find and retrieve birds (see picture). Last week’s hunting he found and retrieved 6 birds
in about 1.5 hours. He works to whistle and no electronic collar is needed. I have to say that although I
worked with him he had no formal training and I attribute his success to breeding and instinct. Thanks so
much for working with us. We are considering another pup in a year or two when we retire.
I've attached some photos of Riley
from Thanksgiving weekend and a few
I took last night. The little guy is
growing like a weed! We started bell
training and he seems to have really
caught on, at least when it's time to do
#2. #1, well that's work in progress. :)
Riley a.k.a. Shadow had an umbilical
hernia that was growing so we had it
repaired by our vet (twice) at 5 & 6 wks
old-looks like it's held up nicely. Most
umbilical hernias can wait until spaying
or neutering but if they grow they are
fixed immediately. Momma had 3 pups
before we got to her and was a little
too aggressive with those umbilical
chords. :-( it happens )-:
You asked for a picture of Zoe; here are a few of her
1st successful hunt. She did great!
I think she has stopped growing and has been 42lbs
for the last two months. She is a perfect size, a
beautiful dog and the sweetest little friend imaginable.
Thank you for her.
