Tillamook, OR 97141
My name is Ruth Montgomery Boge. My family, husband Randy and I live on 5 acres in a small dairy community, Tillamook Oregon. Noted for it's famous Tillamook cheese and ice cream.
Our families have had English Springer Spaniels (ESS), on and off, all my life. At the ripe ol' age of 5 yrs., old, my mother and father aquired "Patty". This was our first liver and white ESS. She was a bench bred show female imported from Florida. Patty was our family companion and protector of myself and two older sisters. I have pictures of her allowing me to dress her up to go show her off in the local 4th of July parade (cowgirl, hat and all).
Since that time there has been many ESS additions to our family on all sides.
As an adult and a mother of a son and daughter, our family pet was a bench bred/field trial female named "Chrissy". She was one of the smartest dogs I have ever owned. When my family lost our beloved "Chrissy" at 15 yrs. old, about 8 years ago, I decided at that time I wanted to raise ESS's, with good temperaments, healthy, and qualities that exemplify the breed standards, along with good looks.
Therefore the search was "on" to find the quality of foundation females that would carry the name "Springer Spaniels of McCormick", with pride. Not all of the females I acquired are in my breeding program. For whatever reason, they didn't fit the standards we were looking for.
Thank you for looking at our boys and girls.
