Hunter and Lily are two peas in a pod, as close as litter mates while Copper and Hunter are just playmates. Often Lily and Hunter gang up on Copper biting her and such. I caught this shot the other day while they were wrestling in my sewing room. Copper is so good with the smaller dogs-she will play bow so she is on their level. I have seen her romp on Lily while they are playing, but since they are together all the time and Lily is clearly Alpha, I don't worry about it. Copper is a very submissive dog and has a temperament just like Hunter's.
After play time is over, Copper crashes.  She is such a sweet dog, but a big dog.
My girlfriend Cyndi who is out from Ca. dog sitting for her brother watches between 12-16 dogs.
They have outside kennels where they stay for the most part, but there is always a handful of dogs allowed inside; although they are smaller than Copper(they are English Springer Spaniels), they can really get going racing and playing.  I guess it's my age showing, but having 6+ dogs inside playing all the time would drive me nuts.  I always thought I'd like another big dog, but I think if we ever got another one it would be a medium size one. Hunter would love a companion, but I've got our grand-pups that he can play with whenever he wants to.
Hope you have a great Wednesday.  Today I'll be biking with Kam and then walking Copper later.
Noreen and the pack


  1. You guys are adorable. We see you are best friends
    Lily & Edward

  2. How cute! We love the signoff too! Yes, bigger dogs typically "self handicap" to accommodate the smaller ones. Six dogs in the house? Wow, that is a lot . . . unless they were doodles BOL!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. Love your dogs! Copper must be a sweetheart to allow the others to play as well as kinda annoy her. :) Our fur babies are the best!
