If your idea of a great time involves wagging tails and enthusiastic furry friends racing around a stubble field, then this weekend is your weekend. It’s time once again to celebrate the South Carolina State Dog with the annual Boykin Spaniel Society National Field Trials, which started Thursday night and will run through Sunday. The entire week already belongs to the little brown dog as Camden City Council recently declared April 3-10 as Boykin Spaniel Week in the city of Camden.
