Happy Easter, everyone! Now that we are in the throes of the fifty-day long feast, I have been skipping out for the odd party and celebration. While popping up to Notting Hill Gate, I bumped into this jolly creature, a Blue Roan Cocker Spaniel who unreservedly jumped into my arms.
Cocker Spaniels of all kinds are slaves to their noses, they are always sniffing trails and the skin just around their mouth does often get very bald from continuous snuffling along the ground.
In the next photo, the little cocker is sniffing my face, not kissing (I promise).
Every kind of cocker spaniel has masses of fine haired fur that needs very regular grooming or it gets into knotty tangles that become dreadlocks...
