The Missing Boston Terriers of Smith Street
Scout was very good at being a Springer Spaniel, a bench type of Springer, that is. He sported a solid black blanket on his back and bright white fur around his neck and belly. The feathers on his legs were long and silky. Bench Springers are superior to those field Springers – a mostly white, very little color, long-tailed yappy sort.
