Last weekend we started offering Blottie's pups food, which is puppy kibble soaked in puppy milk, which makes a very edible porridge for them. We have started a bit earlier with food with Blottie's pups due to how many there is. I now have them up to four feeds a day and will slowly make the food less wet. They also are able to lap water from a water bowl.
They now have teeth erupting and are very aware of noise and they respond to your voice. Very cute when they wag their tail when they hear your voice. We are now in what I call the "dirty phase." When they first start to eat, they can spend more time tramping around the food then eating it and once on solids, Mum starts to not be so keen to clean up after them.
Our next litter is hopefully Autumn 2022

“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
