Cedarhome Springers is located on five acres in the small community of Arlington, Washington, USA. We can be found: about an hour North of Seattle - near the Pacific coast - and about an hour and ahalf or so South of Canada. We are a dedicated family that responsibly breeds quality English Springer Spaniels.
The love of springers has been handed down to me. My grandparents had springers in the 1940's, and my father (an avid hunter and sportsman) had two great springer brothers "Buddy and Chipper" in the 50's. They were the epitome of the great all-around dog. Terrific with children (there were five of us) and as outstanding on the field as in the water. There are many fond memories of life with them.
At their passing, my dad hunted with several other breeds; GSH pointers as well as black labs, chesapeaks, and Irish setters. I was constantly involved with the dogs and felt blessed when encouraged to help and learn.
As a young adult in the mid 70's I followed my heart and chose my first springer, J.J. Sensitive, patient, supportive - with the bonus of being a truly outstanding hunter - she was my dream come true.
It took a while for my life circumstances to catch up with my desires to breed springers. I started breeding "field" style springers in the early 90's. My first "momma", Molly retired and went to live on the beach with my Mom and Dad. She switched her career of being a great mom, to being a hearing assistance dog and constant companion for my folks for the next 8 years.
We all miss her still.
With her retirement, I switched to bench "style" and now have dogs with champion lines. It has always been my goal to stay small and "do -it -right".
All in my care get the best of everything - especially me.
I've just started a fun adventure. Taking some of my own puppy and dog photos, and making unique gifts - t-shirts, mugs, mouse pads, etc.
Throughout my searches,I have found it difficult to find good representations of springers in the readily available market, so decided to share.
Then I did a few custom t-shirts for good friends of mine - using their pictures, adjusted with "poetic license".
The results are truly one of a kind, and items they are proud to display, use and wear.
So...I'm starting to move forward with this. If you would like to find out more and see a few samples check out the web store tab. I will put a few of my photos on there.
