I caught this bit of video (below) of Polly and Jasper playing this morning after their trip up to Bristol yesterday to be MRI scanned for grading on the BVA Chiari Malformation/Syringomyelia Scheme. Set off just before 7 am and due to technical issues at the vets, I presume with the MRI machine, we did not get back home until after 7 pm. Long day and thankful, that I booked David (husband) to be home for the day and look after the rest of the pack. I normally get home around 3 to 4 pm, when I do this trip. Now it's just waiting for the scans to be graded by the BVA.
Off early tomorrow morning with Jasper and Polly for their MRI scans at Bristol. David (husband) is home for the day to hold the fort and look after the pack human and canine. Won't know their grades from the Chiari Malformation/Syringomyelia Scheme - BVA for a few weeks, can take over a month sometimes. Fingers crossed!
Solly left us yesterday to join Pauline, Barry and Solly's half brother Sidney , who is from Rosie's first ever litter, she had with Ernest. It was lovely seeing Sidney and I'm sure the two of them will become best mates. Solly was the pudgiest pup of the litter and a very very cuddly gentle boy. I'm going to miss my pudgy Solly cuddles but I know he is so going to have a lovely life with his new family. All the best Pauline and Barry with your two special boys.
Kayah enjoyed playing with Rosie's pups today. I ran and got the camera and got a nice bit of video (below) of her playing with Minnie and Clarence.
Today Solly, Minnie, Teddie, Eddie and Bonnie had their second jabs at the vets. All good and they all travelled out and back from the vets with none of them showing any signs of travel sickness, which is good. The video (below) is from yesterday and they are enjoying a runaround in the paddock. I can't remember the last time I had so many of a litter stay with me until over 10 weeks old. It's kept me on my toes. The next two Minnie and Teddie to leave us, leave on Sunday. I am aware in the video that I use the wrong name for my daughter and one of the pups. I'm terrible with names!
And Kayah joined us yesterday for a few days, whilst Anita is away with a friend. Kayah is Brimble and Peaches litter sibling from Ernest and Blottie's litter of eleven puppies.
Dewi got chosen yesterday and just waiting on a name for him. So we have a family visiting next weekend to meet Bonnie and hopefully all the pups will have their home sorted. Lovely Sunny Sunday as the pups turn nine weeks old. The one pups so far to leave to join Helen's family Sacha is doing well and getting on really well with Otto (Polly's litter sibling) their other dog.
Polly goes up to Bristol later in the month with Jasper for her MRI scan and to be graded on the BVA Chiari Malformation/Syringomyelia Scheme
Took this bit of video a couple evenings ago of the pups with the rest of the pack.
Finally, I have been able to load a video up on here after two days of trying. This is from early this morning, I am now going to try and load a video from two days ago.
Five of Rosie's pups Minnie, Solly, Teddie, Bonnie and Dewi had their first vaccinations on Tuesday. Sorry, I have not updated until now, as internet connection is making it hard to upload videos at the moment. All went well and all were given a clean bill of health by the vet and all testicles have dropped. Which is always good to have had that happen before pups leave me. Also all going well Bonnie and Dewi are being visited this weekend and the next weekend by families interested in them. So fingers crossed that we have found the seven pups available from Rosie's lovely nine pups homes. Will try and get some footage of the pups up later.
Down to eight pups. Eric (ruby boy) had his first jab on Friday (given thumbs up by the vet), so it fits in with still being able to leave at 10 weeks old. The vets are very busy and could not fit the other five (that are going to leave us at later dates) in until this afternoon. The two I'm keeping I will get done at a later date. They could not come out to me to do their first jabs, as I normally have them do, due to being so busy, so not overly looking forward to taking five of them together. I will have reinforcements with two of my children helping. We normally wait in the car until the vet is ready for us all together, as the waiting room is a bit small. The video (below) is this morning of the pups.

“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
