If whiskers won prizes, I think I might of breed myself a champion in Polly
Teagol's pups turned 8 weeks old today and managed to ambush Mum this morning for an 8 weeks old comfort suckle.
Just to say thanks for all the replies to the news about Blottie. I will reply everyone as soon as possible and get any revision of the waiting list up on the blog, but a bit busy at the moment with such a crucial time for Teagol's litter.
Adaptil collars on for Gwyn, Tamsie, Darcey and Pepper this morning for their first trip in the car and a visit to the vets for their first Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvo DHP vaccination. These four are staying with us until just over 10 weeks old and have had their primary vaccinations for DHP. All went really well travelling to-and-fro from the vets and also at the vets. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera to get some video of the trip, but I did get a bit of them fast asleep in the car on our return home.
Otto had his first trip in the car today and you will have to watch the last video (below) to understand the title of the blog.
Blottie came on heat a couple days ago. We will be going ahead this time with pairing her with Ernest again. This pairing produced ten lovely pups the end of 2017, one of which was Teagol, the mother of the litter we have at the moment. All going well, pups should arrive around the 10th December give a day or two each way. Ready for homes near the end of February 2021.
It would be nice to do a head count at this time of people still interested in this pairing and are on the List for Ernest and Blottie's future litter. So if you can pop me an email confirming if still interest or not. I would much appreciate that, I will give it a couple days and if I have not heard from everyone, I will then pop an email out to those I have not heard from. If you don't get back to me then within a couple days. I will remove from the list. I don't have time to chase people up to much, I'm afraid.
Yesterday evening Tania came and microchipped Teagol's pups. First time I've ever used anyone other than a vet to do the microchipping. Very impressed by Tania. Only a slight murmur from Otto and Gwyn who soon forgot about it with treats offered. Will be using again, she also does mobile pregnancy scanning.
Started car trips today with Teagol's pups. The first up was Ted, as he will leave us next week. The videos are of the stages of his trip up to Winkleigh to pick up one of our children from work at
Clayton Cabinets and back again. We start with Molly with him and then Florrie a bit dusty from work taking over charge of him, so Molly could film him as we were going along.
Got these bits of video yesterday of Puddin' playing with his puppies
Teagol's seven pups now 46 days old enjoyed a lovely run around our paddock this morning, enjoying the spring of grass under their paws.

“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
