Spaniels at The Splash

Rusty and I were lucky enough to meet lots of dogs on Sunday on the Sudbury Water Meadows. It was a lovely afternoon and the dogs were intent on having fun – especially at the stretch of river near the Mill Hotel – which we call The Splash …

There we met 2 water- loving Spaniels, who dashed about in the water and along the bank in pursuit of sticks, balls and Rusty !

I was able to take a few images of the dogs as they played and was introduced to Harry – a very handsome boy with lovely markings. He had posing on the river bank down to a fine art …

The other Spaniel preferred to remain in the water and his gaze was fixed permanently on the stick that his owners were throwing for him. Unfortunately, I missed the opportunity to ask his name.




I was trying to focus on water shots of Rusty and managed to capture a few pleasing shots of him with ears flapping and water splashing – this was my favourite!

As Harry was still posing for the camera, I decided to take a black and white shot of him, which I feel accentuates his gorgeous expression.

Rusty then decided that it was his turn to pose, as he is used to being the most handsome dog around after all …

Thanks to Harry’s owner for allowing me to post his images – I really hope that you like them !!
