I was replying to Loisiana's description of hard as opposed to soft on the previous page -- a harder dog being one that won't shut down in the face of a correction.
Also, exactly right regarding the titling of the dam.
My friend has quite a bit of sporting group knowledge and owns two Am Cockers, one of whom is very birdy, the other of whom is very affectionate. She appreciates these characteristics in them, just as she appreciates the very different characteristics of her Giant Schnauzer.
As for why she is not on here herself, she's very busy running a rescue, fostering and placing dogs, and I offered to network for her and do more research. Since I have been on here for about 6 months and have been looking for a future (2-3 years) pup myself, I was familiar with several of the kennels, and welcomed more input from the readers of this forum. We have somewhat similar tastes in Goldens, except I couldn't care less about their heads, but I prefer reds! We both like naughty drive-monsters. So if this has all confused or "doesn't add up," I'm sorry. I appreciate the help from everyone.
