Two Spaniels of the Sporting group of dogs: one is American and the other is English.
American Water Spaniel
Aptly named, the American Water Spaniel is a true native, bred as a water retriever and an all-around shooting dog with a keen nose. Although his ancestries are obscure, his color, coat, and conformation indicate that he may have been bred from crosses of Irish and English Water Spaniels and Curly-Coated Retrievers. He is sturdily made, of medium size, and his profile displays a symmetrical relationship of parts. His skull is quite broad and full, muzzle deep and square, eyes wide-set (hazel, brown,),long ears falling close and clothed with curls. The feathered tail curls in a slight rocker-like shape, while the weather-resistant coat is compact and tightly curled.
WEIGHT: 25-45 pounds
HEIGHT: 15-18 inches
COLOR: liver or dark chocolate.
The Clumber is the heaviest English sporting spaniels, named after Clumber Park, the Duke ofNewcastle's estate in Nottingham. He is a dignified dog, long-bodied, heavy-boned, and low to the ground. It is considered that his long, low body ensued from crosses to Basset Hounds. His head is massive, its forehead wrinkled, the muzzle somewhat deep to facilitate retrieving several types of game, the jaws long and strong. Docile in expression, his large, dark amber eyes are a trifle loose-lidded, while his ears are wide at the top and hang near his head. His tail is docked and feathery; his weather-resistant coat is straight and flat.
WEIGHT: males 70-85 pounds; females 55-70 pounds
HEIGHT: males 19-20 inches; females 17-19 inches
COLOR: white having lemon or orange markings.
