They sure are and LOL I'm kicking myself for not getting it, as one of Leaf's good friends at Doggy School was a Red Irish Setter! But apparently when young have, according to Niamh's owner, the attention span of a goldfish or less!Yey! Gorgeous dogs aren't they?!
Yes, Welsh Springer Spaniels are shorter but if you look closely you can see a little 'blue freckle' kinda look and I don't think Welsh Springers have any blue in them.White (at least the bit we can see), possibly shortish legs, feathers and fluffy toes.
A bit of me says spaniel, at least the coat looks something like a Springer. Maybe a Welsh Springer spaniel? Don't they have shorter legs than the English Springers? Not convinced by my own guess though
