Springer Spaniel in an orange landscape with Lake Union and Seattle skyline in background. Lucky Vll actually grew up in the mountains near Mt. Rainier. He was the 7th of a long and proud line of Springer Spaniels that were the ranch dogs, and family pets, of a couple who owned a horse ranch and ran pack trails. I never saw him in that environment as the couple had moved from the ranch by the time I met them, so I placed him in a Seattle setting of Lake Union and the Seattle skyline in the background.
