Going to be getting one of these...
Actually, it will be more of a full replacement rather than an upgrade - we lost our previous Springer about 6 weeks ago. He was only 7 but developed soft tissue osteosarcomas, eventually becoming completely riddled. These should be ready just after Christmas so we at least have a fair amount of time to try and agree on a name. Probably not enough, though! We think we will probably get a second one sometime next year - SWMBO wants to eventually have 5.
