Friday morning our electric went out and it came back on Sunday night. A long three days keeping seven humans, fifteen dogs and eleven pups fed, watered and clean. Luckily we have a woodburner that kept us warm and gives us plenty of hot water. It also provides our heating to our radiators but, with the electric off the pump was not working. Saturday with it looking like our electric would not be back on until Monday 11.30 pm, we were able to borrow a petrol generator and got the fridge freezer running before ruining all the food in it and got the infrared light going for the pups. We had been filling water bottles around the clock to ensure they did not get cold.
After supper last night (much to my surprise) a light flickered in the kitchen and a couple seconds later the electric was back on. Today has been back to back loads of washing and luckily the weather was good enough to get most of it outside to dry and then aired off on the radiators. Back on track. Internet though has been really bad until now, as I do this late in the evening.
Blottie's pups will be three weeks old tomorrow and are bright little things. Starting to see their personalities emerging and will hope to get a three week update up tomorrow.
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
