Soft Spot for Spaniels

group of dogs ranging in size from a tiny dachshund wearing a plaid coat to a huge black german shepherdWhile it's a fact that Cabana loves dogs of all kinds, we have found ourselves gravitating toward spaniel breeds. Or maybe spaniels gravitate toward us? Whatever the reason, most of Cabana's favorite playmates are different types of spaniels.

cabana playing with a thin black spaniel who is holding a ball in his mouthBodhi is a Blue Picardy Spaniel. He's lanky and rambunctious, and Cabana is rambunctious right back.

I'll get that ball from you yet!

cabana and bodhi half jumping in the air with front paws all off the ground, bodhi has his paw up toward cabana's shoulder
Oh no you dint!

cabana going up to a brown and white english springer spaniel, who has a long tether, in the driveway in front of a houseJagger is a large liver and white English Springer Spaniel who lives around the block. On walks, Cabana always looks for him, wondering if he is tied up in his front yard so they can have a quick meet-and-greet.

cabana in a strange upright position with her head thrust forward and her paws pushed out to the side, looking at and taunting jagger who is standing right in front of her
You're tied up and I'm not! Nyah nyah!

cabana and black and white spaniel maggie looking at each other in a big field, face to face, both dogs have mouths open in a big laughing smileSweet Maggie is a black and white English Springer Spaniel and is one of our favorite "regulars" at the park.

Hey Cabana, did you hear the one about the smart dog
that got her owner to make her ground beef for breakfast?

close up shot of cabana and maggie, again with their mouths open as if laughing
Ha ha, where's the beef?! That's a good one, Maggie. You tell the best jokes!

mindy, penny and cabana all in a full run on green field, cabana has a big softball in her mouth, all dogs are off the ground in mid-gallopWe see Maggie, Mindy and Penny at the park at least 3-4 times a week. They are great pals with Cabana, and best of all, they love to run...

cabana running full force toward the camera with ears waving in the wind, mindy and penny are running at a distance behind her, also coming right toward the camera, they look really happy...and run and RUN! I don't know what we'd do without our spaniel friends. And I hope we never find out!

Quite the variety of spaniel pals. :)

I had one lab who LOVED great danes. It was pretty funny because she was a tiny little girl and they towered over her!

My hoomie Melissa really likes English Springer Spaniels. She thinks they are very pretty dogs especially when they have really long & thick coats.

I can see how much Cabana loves her Spaniel friends!

What a beautiful array of spaniels! When I think "spaniel" I often envision cocker spaniels, which are so much smaller. Cabana's pals, on the other hand, look like a good match to her both size- and energy-wise!

I love the pictures of Cabana and her spaniel friends! Spaniels seem so soft to me. Would you say that Cabana has a soft side to her personality?
