There is no mistaking now, that Teagol is pregnant and as she heads towards what I consider seven weeks pregnant, each evening as she rests, I gentle place a hand against her abdomen waiting to feel movement of her pups. The size of Teagol at this stage makes me think she has taken from an earlier mating than a later one or she is carrying a large litter or both. Unfortunately we have been unable to pregnancy scan as we normally do, due to the restrictions at this time due to Covid 19. Which would of given us a better idea of conception timing and how many she is carrying. Although in the past, I have been more accurate from palpation than a vet scanning them.
She will be this Saturday coming, seven weeks from her first mating. As a bitch approaches seven weeks pregnant you should start to feel movement and as they approach eight weeks you should start to see the pups moving. The larger the litter the bitch is carrying the more movement will be felt and seen.

“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
