We are still waiting for the Winter Olympics. Although we know we’ll never travel to Russia for it, we still like to practice our sports. We love to run in the snow, as you probably know. Fortunately we have a big yard with a fence around it where we can run as much as we want, and plenty of trees and bushes to attract birds. As the smallest of the sporting dogs, we Cocker Spaniels have a natural talent for hunting. We are very good at something called quartering the field. This means we run back and forth across a field (our yard) in a certain pattern in order to find small animals and birds. Here are some pictures of us doing just that.
