Vulnerable Native Breed[edit]

I would prefer this not be applied to the article. Most breeds do NOT have over 300 puppies a year. The Field produces only 5-8 puppies a liter and breeders purposely do not breed excessively.--Watershipkennel 17:34, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

This breed is classed in Britain as a VNB - a breed which originated in the UK but now has registration numbers with the Kennel Club of less then 300 puppies per year.

I'm a Canadian teenager on a gap year before Uni and I'm really interested in this. Would anyone like a VNB paragraph/link on this page? I can write it, but am ignorant about formatting etc. Plus, I'm trying to put together a whole collection on all 29 breeds on this list, including history and so on, using Wikipedia as one of my many sources. If you can help, or are interested at all, please contact me either on my talk page or at green_ied_dragon@hotmail.com

Image[edit]

The current picture is acceptable but I will be providing more pictures for this article.--Watershipkennel 05:27, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

THe picture posted is not a field spaniel. It appears to be a field-bred springer spaniel, but field spaniels are self-colored (solid) usually a dark brown.--Counsel 01:07, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

  • If we're looking for a better image, there's one on the field spaniel page in a defferent language (Russian I think). Pharaoh Hound 15:23, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

That's right--it's a Springer, or at least not a Field. I've added an external link at the end of the apperance section that shows my old Field.

Hi, if you want to link to an image of your dog - you should upload the photograph image into wikipedia and internal linking to that image. If you need help with this procedure, feel free to leave a message on my talk page - Trysha (talk) 21:15, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

GA Nomination[edit]

Going to be nominating this article up for a GA shortly. Just a note here to let the reviewer know that I won't be including this as a Wikicup entry as I don't consider myself to have done significant work on it this year. In fact, it was an oversight that I hadn't nominated it last October - I'd simply forgotten to nominate it. Miyagawa (talk) 21:25, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

I'll review this article shortly. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 05:11, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Here are the issues I found:

  • Hip dysplasia links to a disambiguation page - have it link to the canine one.
  • The Canadian Kennel Club external link in the infobox isn't working; not sure if the site is just down or if there's an error in the link.
  • "The standard size for a Field Spaniel is 17–18 inches (43–46 cm) tall at the withers,[1] and weighing between 40–55 pounds (18–25 kg)" a bit awkward; i'd change to "and a weight of.."

Just those couple small issues. I'll put the article on hold and will pass it when the issues are fixed. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 05:29, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Fixed those three issues. Thanks for reviewing! Miyagawa (talk) 13:14, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Looks good now, so the article passes. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 17:48, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
