Polly yesterday did her first day out on a local small shoot, alongside one of our children beating. Also the first time I have got out beating for nearly two years. Damn that Covid!
I'm hoping to get a couple more days in before the end of the season. Polly has her Mum's drive and also her Mum's bottom, so watching her from behind was very reminiscent of watching her Mum Teagol who we tragically lost in 2021. Polly is proving that she is a proper sporting little spaniel and her Mum lives on through her. Photos (below) are of Polly out on a walk a few days ago

“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
