Perusing one of my favorite sites on FaceBook, today, I admired a few images and comments from Boykin spaniel owners regaling themselves on the antics of their chosen breed. No doubt this is a fun loving breed that will seek out fun and frolic on its own and provide its human companion with endless hours of entertainment. Their wonderful images reminded me of one of my favorite Boykin photo sessions with 10 year old Paco, the AKC cover dog, who, while providing me with the most beautiful and striking images so representative of this breed, had in his mind more adventurous and fun things to do. As soon as he was released from his AKC duty, he headed straight for nearby Lake Hartwell, dove deep to the bottom and pulled up a large branch to happily and proudly display for all to see. Every Boykin owner knows this to be –
A BOYKIN THING!
