Ernie is a very handsome boy. He has a very laid back attitude to life. He is equally at home in the show ring, or in the shooting field, and takes everything in his stride. Nothing fazes Erno. He leads a very ordered life. Every morning he picks up all the blankets from the dog baskets and takes them out to air. His special method of doing this is somewhat unique. With each one he does a triangle, and then an up and down, as though he was showing. Once this is complete he drops that blanket, and goes back for the next one. This is something of a task as at the last count there were five baskets in the house! Ernie is a champion spaghetti eater.
He finds showing somewhat boring now, but in his younger days had numerous Best Puppy Awards and first prizes at Championship and Open Shows. He was placed Third and Fourth at Crufts under breed specialist Mrs Jenny Miller (Feorlig). What he does like are days out shooting with his Dad. He has an excellent nose, and is very biddable, a very popular dog on our shoot.
Ernie is siring quality puppies to approved bitches, and is passing on his excellent temperament and conformation.
Ernie is Eye Tested Clear May 2005, and Fucosidosis Clear (Non-Carrier) DNA Tested

Even as a young pup he had that certain air about him.
