Seeing Irish Water Spaniels on the Vulnerable Breeds list on another thread, made me wonder if anyone here has one? I love them. Years ago I mentioned to the vet I had at the time that I hoped to get one, and he begged me not to! Apparently he had one as a patient, and in his words it was 'an absolute swine' and told me to stick to Standard Poodles. Despite what he said, I'd love to have one one day!
