Lovely update for Archie from Jane, Paul and Jasmine. Archie is one of Reggie and Primrose's four pups born September 2012.
Just a quick email to send you a fairly recent photo of Archie!
He’s doing fine - he’ll be 8 this year!
Becoming a bit arthritic so having to give him Metacam at the moment which really seems to help.
He recovered from his pancreatitis - we were very strict with his food - low fat cooked chicken and some rice with low fat kibble.
Recently he looked a little lethargic and poorly (and old) so after some research we are giving low fat raw food a go for a month www.honeysrealdogfood.com - he lapped it up and his energy returned as he lost a bit of weight - and then this last week suddenly turned his nose up at it and started begging for the cooked chicken again (we were having roast chicken at the time ourselves and he went mental!!). Not sure what to do next but Archie seems to be in control at the moment!
He is adored by all the family and indeed by anyone and everyone he meets and he sees it as his duty to say hello to everyone on his walks.
Never a day goes by without feeling really thankful and lucky that he is in our lives.
Hope all is well with you and all the family,
All the best,
Jane and Paul and Jasmine …. and Archie of course! xx"

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
Welcome to this blog. I am Jane, a hobby breeder, situated in North Devon, England, UK (map at bottom of page ,shows where we are) on a quest to breed a healthier small spaniel similar to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
WE DO NOT EXPORT PUPPIES
Why I don't export
Our breeding dogs are multi generational extensively health tested. With all our breeding stock having recommended and relevant DNA tests for their breed/breeds. We also have breeding stock annually eye examined on the BVA Hereditary Eye Disease Scheme for dogs, MRI scanned on the BVA scheme using the BVA chiari malformation /syringomyelia breeding protocol, and heart examined using The Kennel Club Heart Scheme for Cavalier King Charles breeding protocol
