|No on the Field, River. They are very vigorous, tend to do things with a great deal of energy. Fantastic dogs and one of my faves, but they are definitely not quite what you are describing.
You might do very well to consider the English Cocker Spaniel....assuming your are in the U.S. They are quite low key compared to the American Cocker, who they can't hold a candle to in the show ring, so their breed rings are always very reasonable. Same logic, I would gather, that put you on the Welsh SS, but Welshies have more energy and are more sporty. English Cockers would seem like the better choice between the two. Very cool breed from a show sense because you are only on English because you love them. Am Cockers are such a stellar show dog and own the ring any show they go to, so those into the showing concept are really drawn to them, leaving the English populated with people who simply love their breed and want to do well by it. It's a very supportive community as a result.
You also could consider a black Cocker, who amongst Cockers are the mellow cuddle bunnies when well bred. But of course a lot of coat, and the breed ring is brutal
