Received this lovely message (below) from Lynda and Steve along with updates for Ted and Ruby. I had been hoping to meet up with all of Teagol's litter on the 18th, but felt I was not far enough in the clear after having Covid 19. Fingers crossed that we can get together in the near future!
Ted is from Puddin' and Teagol's litter of seven tricoloured pups. Ruby is from Ernest and Rosie's litter of eleven pups.
Just a quick message to say how sorry I feel for the considerable “lows” you have suffered in 2021 both with the family and dog related issues you have had to deal with
too and wish for things to considerably improve for you now hopefully
I am sure we were all excited to be meeting up with you again this Saturday and it would have been good for you to see the successful results of your breeding program in our
7 lovely pups from the beautiful soul that was Teagol.
So should you feel up to it as we are all outside anyway you would be very welcome
As Ted has matured I see much in common with his mum especially in the kindly soft expression in his eyes that Teagol had too. - which I love!
In addition he has been so gentle and protective of little Ruby despite the fact that as he charges around the garden she likes to try to hang on his ears to keep up
Although at a hefty 32lbs and seemingly unaware of his size he goes from being extremely lively teenager and into everything to trying to climb on mine or Steve’s lap for a cuddle not realising he hardly fits now
Ruby & Ted are always together so when Ted recently attended the vet for neutering she was beside herself and keeping them separate for him to recuperate was very difficult too
Ruby has been an absolute delight and her personality although so different from Ted in that she takes herself of to bed as she loves to sleep (she is either all systems go or flat out sleeping) whereas he has always got one eye open on what we are doing in case he misses out on something so he does not switch off in the same way as her
Ted always has to be in the closest possible proximity to us whereas Ruby (being much calmer) takes herself of to another room to sleep and she isn’t disturbed by noise around her at all
Here is a photo to hopefully cheer you up and prove all your hard work has been so worthwhile in spreading joy to lots of people
Love to you and the family of helpers

“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
