Sorry for not blogging sooner, but we are having issues with internet connection today. Blottie went into labour the early hours of this morning producing the first pup at 2.55 am and the tenth and last pup at 10.19 am. She is amazing. All really good size pups with a collective weight of just over 3 kilos which is a healthy birth weight for a human baby and when you know Blottie is only around 16 kilos, you understand to body size how much of a super dog she is in carrying such a heavy burden and then give birth to them so seemingly easily. This is her last litter. She has now had three litters being ten, nine and ten. All born naturally, she really is something else. The last pup I thought was stuck for a second and then she gave one big contraction and expelled her like a bullet. Amazing to still have such strong contractions after giving birth to so many.
It is now my job to wait on her every need and make sure pups are warm and feeding well. We have one Blenheim girl, one tricoloured girl, three black and white girls, three Blenheim boys and two black and white boys. Please do not inundate me with emails just yet. Lets get a week at least under their belts before we all get to excited. Not out of the woods yet!

She is an incredible mother, no wonder she was uncomfortable carrying all those puppies. Glad she's safely delivered and hope everything goes well from now on xx

Wow! Congratulations Blottie - you are a super-mum! Rubbing my hands gleefully that I can spend the next 8 weeks looking at cute pictures of puppies. I've just told Murphy he has ten new siblings and he raised his eyebrows at me, wondering why I was so excited. Can't believe he turns three next week. How did we even exist without him - he's the most wonderful dog? I've got my fingers crossed for my friend (who's quite far down the list I think, but you never know), because I'd love for him to be able to go for walks with a brother or sister. Well done Jane. I know how much love and care you put into your pups... xxxk

“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.

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
