Newly revised, this is the definitive guide to the state dog of South Carolina. Since the origin of the breed in the early twentieth-century, the Boykin spaniel has proven to be a crackerjack retriever, remarkable trick artist, and family favorite. This revised edition of ""The Boykin Spaniel: South Carolina's Dog"" by breed enthusiasts Mike Creel and Lynn Kelley is written for all lovers of the Palmetto State's famous little brown sporting dog and chronicles the breed's history, profiles the dog's distinctive personality, describes its sterling abilities, and records the fond memories of a distinguished cast of trainers and owners. A gregarious creature with an uncanny ability to switch freely from playful family pet to disciplined hunting dog, the Boykin spaniel was named the state dog of South Carolina in 1985. By 2000 more than sixteen thousand Boykins from forty-nine states and numerous foreign countries had been registered with the Boykin Spaniel Society, based in Camden, South Carolina. Creel and Kelley offer an unparalleled resource for breed owners and devotees as well as a celebration of this home-grown hunter and companion, truly a dog for all seasons. Their heavily illustrated revised and updated edition also includes the breed standard, lists of award-winning dogs and owners, and a comprehensive bibliography of the breed. South Carolina native Mike Creel is a retired public affairs specialist for the state's Department of Natural Resources and a longtime writer and photographer for South Carolina Wildlife magazine. Creel is a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Journalism and recipient of the 1997 Harry R. E. Hampton 'Woods and Waters' Conservation Memorial Award for journalism given by the South Carolina Wildlife Federation.
