I published this poem on my website back in 2015. It seems to have even more meaning in these times.
Oracle of the Dog
Only the dog knows why the moon
Floats down the night; his raucous tune
Is urgent with the thing he fears,
But falls on unbelieving ears
If we had only learned to speak
The tongue of dogs instead of Greek,
We should be better schooled to fight
The spells and portents of the night.
Now at the coming of the dark
Young fools adrift in street and park
Yield to an epidemic swoon,
Abuse the dog and praise the moon
- Vincent Starrett
Active, sporting, sound little spaniels

“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
