At the end of March we completed and exchanged moving to the new home we bought only a couple miles from where we were before. Swapping the view of Exmoor for a view of Dartmoor. We now have a lovely old character cottage with a quarter acre garden and running alongside the garden is a 1.5 acre field we have a rolling contract on. My husband David, me and the children have worked so hard to make this happen. Very proud of them all!
We have some work to do at the new place and we are looking to 2024 to hopefully start up where we left off with the Poundlane spaniel. The male pup we kept back from Rosie's litter last year Clarence, has grown into a very smart chap with the loveliest soft nature about him. A total lap lover and very quick to learn commands. He did a few days under guns last shooting season and showed he was of a calm stable temperament to enjoy the job. Not scared by much, he follows me when vacuuming and often stands with his front feet on top of the vacuum cleaner. Very curious pup.
Brimble from Blottie's last litter last year is also pretty special. She is so much like her Mum but in tricolour. Very laid back and such a cuddle monster, she only has to be on your lap for a couple minutes and you will feel so relaxed, you will find it hard not to fall asleep stroking her. She is also very smart and is very quick to learn. So I'm hoping that these two might make the grade after all their health tests to make a lovely pairing in 2024.
Teagol's daughter Polly, who will be three in August and is only now having her third heat. As she seems to be harking back to her Great Great Grandmother Millie, who used to heat from 11 to 12 months apart. Polly had her first heat at around 11 months old. Her second at around 10 months and now has gone 12 months to her third. For a small dog it is unusual for so long between heats. It has no reflection on fertility, other than I hope it means she will have less build up of lining in her uterus at her age, so I'm not worried to let her have this heat and look to her next heat, which will probably be next year to breed from her for the first time. She is like a super little spaniel, real quick and clever but also a very loving cuddle up with you dog, as well. I have a partner in mind and a back up partner as well for Polly. Will let you know more about her potential beau in the near future.
Anyway, before I post some photos of the Poundlane pack chilling in their new home. I have a new landline phone number but at the time not much use in putting it up here, as for some reason we have yet to find out why it does not ring for calls coming in. Once I get this issue sorted, I will post the new number. Those who have my mobile number, it's still the same if you need to get hold of me. For anyone else making a new inquiry about Poundlane. Email me first at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a time to have a chat.

“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
