    The drive and ability of some humans to assemble beauty out of disparate elements is remarkable. And a blessing to the rest of us.

    The misery of cities is noted in the fact that at least 7 times during that video I thought “Isn’t it illegal for those dogs to be on the beach?”

    But I shook it off like a wet dog.

    Don’t know about all that catterwauling in the background (turned it way down) but Spaniels, what’s not to like? Since 1984 we’ve had at least 1 continuously, cockers and brittanys. 2000 to 2011 we had a cocker and a brittany. Our current mutt is 1/2 brittany and 1/2 aussie, 100% high energy and loyal to a fault. But I’d have her no other way.

    Two springers and a springer cross. The males tend to end up in rescue because people don’t know how to deal with them. But they are such loving and funny dogs.

    We’re a setter family and I’ve got a mini GoldenDoodle that I love like my kids. Friend of mine had a pair of Springers that nearly ran his whole family crazy before they settled down and the gyp never really did, ever, plant her feet on terra firma.

    Sporting and water dogs…there are few things better but you do need a calm disposition and a firm but gentle hand because they will try your patience to limits you never knew you had. They really don’t begin to grow up until they’re well past 3 years.

    Neither do humans.

    Something wonderful in its own way: Cats + Bach. Cat #2 (who takes up most of the short video) looks a lot like Miss Olive, and its movements (almost balletic toward the end) echo the delicacy of Bach’s sonata.

    Jack – we have 2 Border Collies. They’re both 12 going on 2. OMG! Talk about trying your patience. They are just too smart for their own good… and mine, too!

    Thanks, PA. Great video and yes she does look like a younger Olive.
