Rosie gave birth to her first pup this morning at 6.01 am and gave birth to her ninth and last pup at 10.25 am. Five boys and four girls. Five born backwards and four born forwards. One of the Blenheim boys has rear leg dew claws on both legs. Great Great Grandmother Millie to Polly had dew claws on both back legs. Not so often seen outside the few breeds that call for hind dew claws.

6:01 Ruby boy 12 1/2 ounces born forwards
6:45 Tri girl 13 1/4 ounces born backwards

Photos (Below) are warts and all. Too tired to go through and edit, so I loaded up all (I believe) 117 photos of the birth. Strong pups, calm and wonderful birthing by their Mum Rosie, as she did with her first litter. Now I just have to make sure Rosie is given every chance to rear them all safely. Surprised to get so much white and shows Rosie can produce pups with tan points. Will be interesting to see how much roaning out we get on the whiter pups. Enjoy!

“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
