When this photo was taken, this little 14 day old, female golden English Cocker Spaniel was known as Number Three (born 3rd). I just had to decide between two females, which one I wanted to keep out of Gemini & Rosie’s pups.

I had already chosen the name JESSIE, from the first sound of Gemini’s name (our pedigree English Golden Cocker Spaniel) and the last part ‘sie’ of Rosie (Angela’s pure bred English Golden Cocker Spaniel).

It really wasn’t hard to know which one was to be Jessie. She loved Tahlia, my 2 1/2yr old granddaughter, cuddling in to her and falling asleep. This is my favourite shot out of quite a few.

Hi, my name is Robyn J. Blackford. I am a retired nurse who loves photography, pyrography and writing. I live with my husband in the rainforest of Tallebudgera Valley in Queensland, Australia.

All my photos are what I see through the lens.
