    The Gentle Leader

    As a dog mom, I am 100% convinced that my Phineas is, in the words of Mary Poppins, Practically Perfect in Every Way. As a responsible dog owner, I know that he is more like Michael Banks than Mary Poppins: Extremely Stubborn and Suspicious. He’s likely to lash out at any dog or child who…

  • Welcome!


    Hello! I’ve had this domain name for a while, I’m just starting to play around with it. I expect most of this content to be photos of Finn and Rosie, our English Springer Spaniels. I’m also considering a little history on the breed, anything new and cool in dog news I happen to pick up,…
