Chelsea, the dam
King SireWell there will be a new addition to the Smith household. An add on to a thriving brood consisting already of a 13 year old beautiful and multi-talented girl, a young and beautiful wife, and youngish and beautiful mother-in-law, a chocolate labbish loveable but skiddish Charlotte and Curry, the "oh please", cat. Into all this Hattie will come. A soon to be born English Springer Spaniel. Yah! Dam and Sire are from a small farm in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Pure breds but mother is part field and part bench, father all bench. From a very good home from what interactions I've had with the breeder, Kathy,....who doesn't really consider herself a breeder at all but more of a provider of joy I think. She assists with the birth of all the puppies, who are meant to be born early March. Then 6 weeks until weened and a road trip to the small farm to pick up Hattie. Then the fun shall begin. I look forward to the weekly updates from Mississippi after the birth. Kathy states she will send pictures as well. Joy I think has already been provided. Thanks be to God.
