|My name is Joey Coleman. I have been an avid Outdoors man and grew up hunting in
Prince Edward County, in a place called Darlington Heights,Va. I have always been fond of the
sporting and the hunting dog breeds. I have had German short hair pointers and Labrador
retrievers. In 1999, I came across the Boykin Spaniel through the introduction to the breeder ,
Jeffrey D. Gibbs a.k.a. Bo Gibbs. He is the owner of Emily Boykin Spaniels. After watching his
Boykins in action, I knew I just had to have one of my own. I did my homework and gathered
as much information as I could to educate my self about the Boykin Spaniel.
After negotiating with“Bo,” I purchased my first Boykin. She goes by the name of Scarlet.
Scarlet and I spent every daylight hour after work training in the woods. I had no clue on what I
was doing because she was a puppy and I was a novice Boykin Spaniel owner. I called Mr.
Gibbs and Jason Corp ,(who works and helps on the Bo's tree farm) every couple days and
ask them for advice. There advise was very helpful and to the point. I owe a lot to those guys
because as Scarlet grew older, she started to progress with what I was training her to do. “
FLUSH GAME !” What a thrill! All of those hard working days came together. Turkeys flushed
in different directions and watching Scarlet do her job was exciting. I have also trained Scarlet
to trail blood. Chris Brown,( who is my bow hunting partner), and I enjoy using Scarlet when it
comes to tracking are our game. I am in the process of training Ginger, who is from another
litter of Mr. Gibbs. She is well on the way of becoming the Boykin I know she will be.
I acquired Dixie and Jenny in 2005 . Dixie and Jenny were rescued from a fellow in
Chesterfield, Va. They are a little bit older than my first two boykins but I am hoping to teach a
them a new trick or too. Most of our training can be contributed to the “Bo Gibbs Boykin
Spaniel Hunt Club.” The hard work and dedication from all us have made “beating the brush,”
fun and memorable. As every Boykin is always ready for the next hunt, I look forward to
seeing them do what they do best. I promote good nutrition and good health. I’m proud to
own Boykins and know they will be the dogs of the future. I’m glad that the Boykin Spaniel
Society strives to keep the breed “in check.” Through my endeavors with my Boykin Spaniels, I
try to provide proper education of the breed in my area. With that in my mind, may all who
encounter the Boykin Spaniel, lead the way and protect the integrity of their future. Let no
Boykin be left behind!
ROCK HILL BOYKIN SPANIELS. Replying to the e-mails on gotboykin.com and numerous
phone calls, has been a real pleasure to talk and listen to the stories of those who own Boykin
Spaniels and answering questions for potential owners. It has been fun hunting behind my
Boykins and creating opportunities for my friends to have success on any given day. I know
that after all this time and experience , I still have a lot to learn.
