Denver is a 2 year old Brittany Spaniel. She was a birthday gift for our daughter when she turned one. They have been good buddies. We named her Denver because that is where our daughter was born.

Denver loves to play fetch. She will run after objects we throw for her for hours and bring them right back. She also is a good bird pointer although we haven't done any training with her.


Denver has more energy than any other pet we've ever had. She is crazy! Brittany Spaniel's are known for their good personality and gentleness with children. That is why we got her for our daughter. We think she will always have the energy of a puppy. In this picture she is playing in the snow. What fun!
