It is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to Fergie on Saturday 16th December. Although he has only been with us for 4 years, he became a very much loved member of our family and we will miss him immensely. He had a beautiful nature and never complained in spite of his long term health issues, always giving love and cuddles. He never quite made it to his 13thbirthday, which would have been on New Years Eve, His sister Tara is still with us, giving us joy every day. It has been a privilege to be part of his story.

I cannot believe that three years has passed since Buster came to stay for a few weeks during a COVID lockdown. When his forever home was eventually found I begged to keep him and the rest is history.
He loves running off lead ; rummaging about in the undergrowth (probably looking for a pheasant) so we walk miles each day. He has become much braver when meeting other dogs and has learned that if I go out I will return. I think he likes it when I leave him because he can sleep with both eyes closed.
He is sleeping soundly tonight after his morning run with his spaniel friends and a good swim in Linmere. Both vet and groomer adore him and have commented on his is excellent health and good looks now that he is the correct weight.
If only I could follow his example!

I am so sad to say we have lost our wonderful Peg. We collected her from your kennels at Stoke in 2007 and have had 16 fantastic years with her. She has been on every holiday with us and enjoyed farm sitting with us. Her temperament was great and 5 grandchildren enjoyed play with her.
Sadly she became very confused but we coped with that, but then her legs became weaker and weaker and she was getting stressed about being immobile.
It was an awful decision but we had to do our best for her
Miss her terribly but so grateful to have had her in our lives and sheโ€™ll always be in our hearts.
Sleep well Peg xx

My springer spaniel was from Rose Tree Farm Kennels and Cattery. She did not have her name and we understood she had been breeding with. When Lynda and Rod owners of kennels were delighted I had been chosen to take her home, We had an idea she may be about 5years old and from Dudley , Birmingham. we named her Ethel Rose after kennels. We loved each other so much wherever I was going Ethel was with me, especially if we were competing with my close friends horses. Spell the word LORRY and she was first up and best dressed.
Ethel was diagnosed with cancer last year our Vets at Ashcrofts, Frodsham had to take away a strip . you would never know . we cuddled and kissed. Ethel was always meeting and greeting my clients when they bought their own dogs to be groomed.
in The Cheshire Dog Grooming Studio , in Frodsham 22years,
in fact Ethel Rose knew I was always loving her every time I looked at her she would expect clients speak to her first. I was delighted how she gave me everything . Best thing Ethel always came with me in our' car. 200yds and Ethel was asleep.
we have very close friends in Mid Wales. last year we Judged the first Dog show since Covid at Rhandirmwyn.
Yes Ethel Rose.
Sadly Ethel Grew her wings 6 weeks ago at 16yrs 1 month and 1 day,
this is why I apply to have another springer spaniel if you hav an elderly springer or Cocker Spaniel,

We are getting on a bit now, but still have our two beautiful dogs. Mum (Mitch - 10) and son (Charlie - 6). Mitch came from Newflame Gundogs, in Derbyshire as a pup, and never really showed the slightest interest in serious training - not that we wanted to work her - but we had to have a dog with intelligence. In her 3rd year we had her mated back into her bloodline (having ensured all the protocols of breeding co efficients) and she eventually had 12, yes twelve pups. 11 survived but the last born had a cleft palate, which prevented suckling, and she passed away after 4 days. 11 young hungry, active, and energetic babies needed constant attention, and supplementary feeding, and many sleepless nights!
Our vet had several opportunities to check up on the families' progress, and the last visit she remarked that - she had been a vet for 37 years,vand no-one had ever presented her with a litter of pups like these. She further commented that " this is what you get when you do the job properly!" Praise indeed. All pups were sold to people from Anglesey, Clitheroe(2), Lytham St Anne's, Bracknell(2), Halewood, Preston, one we kept and two more went to Northampton/ Leicestershire, but they were never paid for. We had manyong wasted contacts with this couple, but to no avail. Later on we noticed that the two dogs, Smudge and Darcy, no longer appeared on her Facebook page but had been replaced by a French bulldog. This prompted me to demand to know where "my two dogs were?" Eventually we traced Darcy through Kennel club registration change, but we never could, or did find Smudge. Firstly we were told that she had been re- homed with a country family in Gloucestershire, which later changed to an equestrian centre in Yorkshire, but she flatly refused to give me the name. Darcy had found a very good home, and had settled in with a very genuine lady who kept Alpacas, but even she did not know what happened to "Smudge".
I noticed a recent posting about a Smudge and Loki being re- homed in Cumbria, and just wondered if, by any chance this was "my Smudge" originally? Could it be a twist of fate? I have kept in touch with all of the owners of this litter, and Smudge is the only one missing. It would be really good to know that she had found a really loving home and was having a good life. So you see, not all breeders are callous, money grabbers. Some of us "do the job properly" and even keep in touch after 6 years! For my own peace of mind I would be overjoyed to "find" the missing SMUDGE. If only,........

We adopted Duke b/w Springer 9yrs ago and he was such a lovely handsome 2yr old with a gentle nature. We renamed him Stanley and he fully integrated in to our family. Sergeant Stanley as we affectionately called him was the most faithful companion who was happiest when he was at our side wherever that may be. He was a true house dog, gentle as I said, but not always the sharpest and his sister, (welsh boarder collie) always out witted him when it came to retrieving the ball on our walks, but his enthusiasm never dwindled and he chased with gusto. We moved to a rural location 8yrs ago so both dogs could have more space to run, however, Stanley had a taste for chicken and so I made the yard chicken proof , it didnโ€™t stop him barking inanely at them through the gate. But honestly, I would sell my home to hear that bark one more time, to have the warm Stanley hug and to see his tail wag when I walk in the room. Sadly on 3rd December I took him for his last walk, he sniffed the perimeter of every field we had walked for the last 8yrs, he pulled me as he always had and to look at him you would not know he was terminally ill.

We noticed a month earlier that he was not himself and test after test revealed a mass the size of an Orange attached to his spleen . We researched all options, he had a CT scan which showed more cancer cells which were there and this made his tumour inoperable. Stanley was strong as an ox, but it was only a matter of time before he started to bleed and we were told to take him home and spend some quality time with him., which we did , he was spoilt rotten and was allowed to eat whatever he fancied, sleep wherever he lay. For 3 days we enjoyed the best of Stanley.

RIP Stanley, you brightened our lives and will always be in our hearts. Meg, your sister is missing you and we will take care of her for you, thank you for being you, xx

I am heartbroken to let you know that I had to say goodbye to my lovely Sammie yesterday, and I miss him already.
Sammie had suffered from arthritis for some years, and when he began struggling to walk two weeks ago, the best I could hope for was that he was having a flare up. So I got him an extra session of acupuncture - he had been having acupuncture and hydrotherapy for a couple of years, to supplement his various anti inflammatory and pain relief medication- and took him to see my regular vet for a check up. But over the last few days he deteriorated despite three vet visits, and ended up at the emergency animal hospital on Thursday evening, where a scan showed the devastating news that he had a mass on his liver and on his lung. No wonder my poor boy was so poorly. Up to the last two days he had eaten as normal, cadging whatever treats he could as well. Then he had gone off his food and I knew things werenโ€™t good.

Iโ€™d left him in their care overnight, but the call came at 1am that the situation was as bad as it could be and I needed to let him go. So I went to spend a few minutes telling him I loved him, before he passed away.

I am so grateful for having him in my life. We were a team, I rarely left him, and never more than a couple of hours or so, and was always as pleased to see him on my return, as he was to see me. We had a couple of short holidays to dog friendly hotels, but when at home walked on the moors every day, come rain or shine. He loved water, mud, flushing birds out of the heather, and any treats his big saucer eyes could win him from his various human friends.

Thank you for letting him come to live with me. My home wonโ€™t be the same without him, and my settee is empty without him snuggled up beside me.

Happy romping at rainbow bridge, Sammie.

Hi, my name is Ruby Rose or just Ruby to my Dad and Mum. I thought you would like to know how I am getting on, I have settled into my new home enjoying lots of walks, fetching balls and sometimes chasing the birds in the fields, which is great fun.
Dad and Mum say that I am a beautiful little girl with lots of love to give them, I must admit I do enjoy my cuddles and tummy tickles as I stretch out on the sofa.
They know that I am very happy as I am constantly wagging my tail ( Which they say sounds like a little drum beating).
My Dad and Mum would so much like to thank you for allowing them to adopt me and bring lots more love into their lives.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Sarah for my green ball which is still my favourite toy.
Love Ruby ๐Ÿ’•

I adopted Charlie a b/w springer in December 2010 he was 3rs old. From your Warrington kennels. He was a tall handsome lad who took to me like a duck to water. He loved playing ball and retrieving game on land or water. In his later years he got the dreaded arthritis but being a determined lad he carried on and still loved to play fetch if only for 10 min. I sadly had to say goodbye to him 29th August 2021. He was very much loved and I will be looking for another Springer shortly. Thankyou NESSA for the 11 years of his love and companion ship.

Milo. We adopted our 15 month old male springer Milo from NWESSR on 1st August 2014, 7 years and 1 week ago today! He's our 4th springer in the family, and the first re-home/rescue (but most definitely not last). We would like to thank his former family for giving us the opportunity to give him a new forever home, where he is much loved, adored, safe, and happy. He's getting lots of walks and travelling adventures, homemade treats and even sneak him a bit of fresh homegrown produce every now and then! He has some frog friends in the garden he likes to "play" with, and has been known to play football with visiting hedgehogs. We just want you to know that he is very happy and settled, and that hopefully at some point in the near future we hope to get him a companion or "apprentice". We know the decision to give him up was an agonizing one, but thanks to NWESSR he came to the right home. He understands us, we understand him and we'd be totally lost without him.

Back in February 2008 we collected two girls from a kennels in Warrington, adopted them through what was then West Mids Springer Spaniel Rescue. We lost Millie 4 years ago, and last week said goodbye to Ruby. Both reached the ripe old age of 15 years old and were fit and healthy until the last few months of their lives when old age took over. Millie was nicknamed Queenie as she had a topknot of curls and loved to sit on her big cushion, and Ruby was a tennis ball with a dog attached. Such loving dogs and we miss them both so much. Springers are just the best dogs xx

We adopted the nearly 11 year old Marley in October 2019.
He was a big challenge initially, but of course has become a wonderful and indispensable part of the family.
He tires a little more easily in his old age, but is doing great, and continues to think he is 2 when it's chuckies time.

We adopted TOOKIE later renamed COOKIE late in 2010 aged 5, and it is with great sadness that we have to announce his passing on June 1st 2021 aged 16 years. He was much loved and will be sadly missed but he had a good innings and a happy life whilst he was with us. God bless.

We had to say goodbye to Cookie (originally known as 'Tookie') on 1.6.21. We think he was in his late teens, and believe the Yumove+ and Flexcel worked wonders for his weak back legs. Unfortunately, he had 2/3 lots of mouth cancers all of which were operated on, and the Rosehip Tablets proved to be a very good post-operative supplement. He came to us as a very nervous/reactive dog. We put this down to his past 5 years of ??? We can only assume he had been abused, as we were both bitten, but quickly forgave him this, and it took a few years before he seemed to know how to wag his tail. Little Willow, our Sprollie, became his best friend, and he settled into old age with the very best of company. We already miss you Cookie. Sweet dreams filled with tennis balls and long walks in Sutton Park.

It is with great sadness that I tell you that our beloved Springer Whiskey has crossed the rainbow bridge today. One of those rescued from a cellar with several other springers, he has been a scource of great joy to us in the - far too short time - we have been lucky to have him. Such a loving, gentle and sweet natured dog you would be hard to find after such bad start to his life. A huge hole is left in our lives now, may you rest well my lovely until we meet again.
