A few photos (below) of some of Rosie's pups taken on one of my children's new phone.
Brimble is now seven months old, her sister Peaches has just started her first heat but at the moment Brimble is not showing any signs of starting her first heat. Brimble (video below) is really into Rosie's pups and is incredibly good at playing with them. At Brimble's age they can still see themselves as pups and you have to be careful they don't forget their size and become a bit too boisterous. Brimble though seems to know to keep it gentle and it is very enjoyable watching her with them. Like a mother hen and reminds me so much of her sister Teagol.
Yesterday we changed the puppy pen around for Rosie's pups
Our oldest child has just been home on leave and fell in love with one of Rosie's pups and due to saying she looked a bit harlequin in markings to begin with, he named her "Quin." She is a very cute , very friendly and very white to one side but flecking out.
She also is getting to know the sound "Quin."
Put up a pen today for the pups so they can in the evening be near us while we watch telly and get used to the noises from the telly.
Rosie's pups now twenty-four days old are getting ever more active.

Got this bit of video (below) this morning before going off to do a morning milking. Rosie had just fed them and all was content. Pups are twenty days old today.
Rosie's pups at seventeen days old are doing really well. Eyes and ears open and getting more mobile by the day. Starting to noticeably respond to human voices and starting to play interact with each other and humans. Really cracking litter and Rosie is such a good Mum.
I would like to now hear from those who have already contacted me for a chat and are interested in a pup from this litter. Firstly email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm if still interested.

On the 6th August. The day after Teagol's pups turned two years old. I met up with Otto, Gwyn, Darcey and Pepper. Four of Teagol's pups so siblings to our Polly, who I took along with their Dad Puddin' also in tow. Unfortunately Tamsie and Ted were unable to make it due to things beyond their families control, as I did not make it last year when they met up, due to just getting over Covid.
Helen (Otto) had so kindly invited us to all meet up at her place and it was really lovely to catch up with them all human and canine. Big thank you to Helen and everyone else for making this happen. Great to know that I have such lovely folks looking after Teagol's brood!

“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
