A lovely kind message from Janet, who has Coco. Thanks for all the kind messages I have received, it has not been an easy year.
Coco is from Ernest and Blottie's litter of ten again
I was so sorry to read your latest blog about Billy. You have had such a sad year losing Millie, Smudge and then Teagol; I can see why now having to say goodbye to Billy might feel like the last straw. I just wanted you to know how much all your work to breed healthy energetic little spaniels is appreciated by those of us lucky enough to have one of your puppies in our lives.
Coco is now 11 months old. We are working towards our Bronze Good Citizenship award and accreditation as Pets as Therapy and we are also doing agility. She loves to learn although we do have a lot of work to do to improve her recall which was solid until about 7 months but then went to pieces. She has the softest velvet mouth and at 7.8kg is quite petite but with a big character. Everyone in the village knows her and says hello and she is convinced they are all her best friends! She spends everyday at daycare playing in the woods while I am working. Evening is my favourite time when she dozes off on my knee. I can’t imagine being without her and I am so grateful to all your knowledge and expertise that went into breeding what even my vet calls my perfect puppy!
I just wanted to say thank you, and that I am thinking of you and your family.

“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
