Greeting and an update before Christmas from Gemma who has Darcey. Darcey is our Polly's litter sibling from Puddin' and Teagol's litter of seven pups.
Slightly belated but we wanted to wish you a very joyous Christmas and safe healthy and happy New Year.
Darcey has thoroughly enjoyed Christmas I think as she’s immensely enjoyed the turkey and the tearing up of wrapping paper.
A couple of photos attached just for your personal note so you can see how she’s developing. I think she’s a real equal mix of Teagol and Puddin’, (from following the blog and meeting them briefly but I’d ge intrigued as to who you see).
I thought you’d like to see her next to Foxy, for length purposes.
And the profile pic of her head shape/ nose. I think it’s pretty perfect from my amateur view!
I’m wondering how much taller she will get, she looks like she is long legged as well as being long and slinky in the body.
Only this week has she filled out a bit more in the body width ways and around the head.
She gives us all huge amusement and lots of snuggles- she loves all people- she gets very socialised to a variety of folk in our park including the parks department staff who she recognises now. She is very excited by other dogs but obviously more cautious with them.
I met Gilly with Pepper a few weeks ago, we think they recognised something within each other that they were family!
Darcey seemed huge (taller) by comparison, however she still looks very petite next to other cocker spaniel puppies for example as they are generally more chunky than Darcey is.
Our WhatsApp group is brilliant- we’ve got everyone apart from the humans of Gwyn.
We’ve loved messaging with each other as the tips we’ve shared have been so useful and as they are such lively puppies, we’ve been very comforted by the fact we are all going through the same fun daily trials! We hope to all meet up when all this COvid business allows.
It’s lovely to see Blottie and her pups.
Again they are a testament to your Fairy Dog Mother-ness. I tell D that they are her Aunties and Uncles she can hear in the videos!
Anyway that’s enough from me.
Best festive wishes to all the Poundlane family.
Love from Darcey, Gem and Stu"
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.

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
