Spaniel or Collie...................
Maybe start a thread!!
Steady temperament all important if you have kids. I was asking Liz about 'cocker rage' and she said it's a result of intensive breeding but the working cockers don't seem to have it which is worth knowing. Collies are great for the hill but need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation (get twitchy if bored!) so it depends what kind of life you can offer really. You can't beat a lab for good temperament with kids and they tend not to be as hyper as collie or spaniel.
