    are you talking about on her head??? if so that is what i though... i have read those breed standards pages ( since buying her) and i thought the white spot on the head was not good but then i saw alot of breeders pages with champion blue roans with the spot on her head????......

    It seems the blue roans with white are working breeds and the ones without are show breeds. Perhaps limit register was for breeding working dogs only?
    Still, even working dogs are shown, so not sure why they are categorized differently.

    Yep I was talking about the white spot on the head, says white is only permitted on the chest.

    And yep, you are right, just had a look on DOL and there are quite a few with everything from spots to stripes down the heads... either someone needs to update the breed standard or a lot of judges forgive the white.

    read again though... its for solid colours not roans. the white is permitted on the head on a roan.
    that in solid colours, no white is allowed except for on the chest

    Haha all good, I'll be the first to admit I know nothing about Cockers.

    I have a Poodle here who was supposed to be a show dog. He was purchased from a top breeder.
    He could still be shown, he is structurally very sound, only he has a bit too much bone. A Poodle should be elegant, whereas he is a very solid boy.

    I could have bred him (I had a lot of offers) but it wouldn't have felt right breeding a dog I wasn't truly happy with.
    So he is asleep on my couch right now missing 2 important baby making devices.

    enjoying life though which is what it should be for all dogs... not just shows etc. we are going to spoil our girl rotten. i have always thought of cocker spaniels as "pretty" dogs but never really looked into getting one. I saw her last week on the net and thought she was way too pretty to be sitting there waiting for a home, googled cockers traits and though they sounded good so went and picked her up four hours away! she ( and i am guessing the majority of cocker spaniels) is the most beautiful dog, i never knew a dog could be so calm, so gentle, so loving!
