This morning Rosie gave birth to her first pup at 3.10 am and the last at 6.37 am. She has had an amazing eleven pups. Three boys and eight girls. No tricolours, three black and white with the rest Blenheim. I will blog later with more photos. The birth was very calm and very quick, and with a couple pups needing assistance to clear fluid from airways it was not so easy to take many photos during the birth, but I still have a far few. Rosie has taken to being a Mum, like a duck to water. Simple amazing with fingers crossed all rear on well.
We also have been struck by tragedy this week with suddenly losing Smudge on Wednesday and is why lack of blogging as we came into Rosie's birth. I will blog about the passing of Smudge, when I feel up to it.

“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
