The first Boykin Spaniel that Kim Parkman ever saw was in 1980 when her future husband, Jule, gave his father a puppy as a gift. "He was the foundation stock with the Boykin Registry," Parkman said. Parkman now breeds, trains and sells Boykins at Pocotaligo Kennels, located behind her home on Lake Ashwood Road in Lee County.
