I can see where a pair if Griffs might have some merit- bu isnt rhe merit of a versatile really they are good enough across the board, for the one dog owner. I like hunting with pointers And flusher/ retrievers when it's an option, rather than a pair of versatiles. So purely on the basis of enjoying the dog work in the field is go with a spaniel. I think that would really complement the griff. I think with springers you have a larger more established genepool and that it will be easier to find a good healthy one. The boykins I've seen have been nice dogs though - if brown is your thing.
