Brodie came to us from the Dogs Trust and had been a stray so we don't know exactly how old he was when we got him but their Vet put him at 10years old. So that would make him about 15, a very old boy for an English Springer Spaniel but it is still very hard when you lose them. He was not in a very healthy condition when the Dogs Trust took him in and the Vet had to remove one of his kidneys and a lot of his teeth. He was also understandably underweight, even when he came home with us he still had weight to gain but it did not take him long to come up to a healthy weight. After that we had to watch that he did not get overweight.
Brodie loved his toys and his newest one was always his favourite. He was the best natured dog I have ever known. He loved people, especially children. When we lived in Mildenhall we were near a school and on occasion I had to drag him away when he joined in with a class having a sports lesson on the playing field. He had also tried to join in a Cricket match one time which was not thought funny by the players. He was friendly with other dogs he met on his walks and was gentle with and accepting of our other pets.
