Dad wanted to breed her but Sassy wanted no part in breeding so he ended up getting her fixed. He always joked about having a dog with morals LOL.
Sassy just earned her AKC canine good citizen, then we go to therapy dog training. She will still hunt with me now and I want to get her into some agility classes too. This girl can jump pretty high and is super fast! We gotta keep her busy!
Note: Don died and now his daughter Jennifer has Sassy.
Hi Bill and Terry,
My name is Jennifer Booth. My father is Don Booth. Six years ago my dad got a beautiful English Cocker Spaniel from you they named Sassy. She is doing so good and I wanted to just send you an update.
My father sadly passed away unexpectedly in Aug of 2015. My stepmother Lynnette and I co-own sassy now. Sassy was very stressed and quite upset by my dad’s passing. She sort of developed seperation anxiety from it so we make sure other than a few hours a day that I work she is never alone. She has become my emotional support dog in the process.
I have been able to bond with her and even take her hunting just like she loved to do with my dad. She is currently enrolled in a class for canine good citizen and she starts this Tuesday. She has been such a blessing to me as she is my little piece of my dad. She loved him so much.
Sassy enjoys cuddling in the morning. She’s a big baby in the morning! LOL! She also enjoys hunting obviously, retrieving balls. We even got an automatic ball thrower and she can do it all herself! She barks in excitement! She loves to play in the snow and is extremely loving. She’s very attached to a stuffed pig that she unstuffed and it is now a rag shaped like a pig. She loves it so much we have to replace them once in awhile!
Thank you so much for such a beautiful girl! I love her so much!
Once my stepmother retires I don’t know at this point if she will take her back fulltime or let her stay with me as we are both pretty attached!! Lol It’s hard not to! If she does I will definitely save up to get another beautiful English Cocker Spaniel from you. She is just amazing! I’m including a few pictures so you can see her today and one with her last hunt with my dad!
