Thanks for all the kind messages (some I have yet to reply) and updates for Poundlane pups as I took a break from the relentlessness of the internet and recharged the batteries. After having Covid go through our home, we are now back on track again. I have a lot of catching up to do with a burgeoning inbox of updates and I will get them up as time permits. Thanks everyone!
I missed Polly's litter siblings reunion at Winkleigh on Saturday, as I thought it a bit risky to go to having only just gone negative for Covid, but I hope we can all get together in the not so distant future. Hope you had a lovely time catching up with each other in person.
Yesterday, with the gorgeous weather I felt it was about time we got Polly to the beach. Her first time, but you would not think it. She loves fetch and one of my children took some photos (above) of our trip and filmed Polly (below) making a couple retrieves. The one with me throwing the ball, she gets distracted by a bit if stick poking out of the sand as she brings the ball back, but when I repeat the command, "Bring it back!". She regains her focus. The one with one of my children throwing the ball into the water. Tilly is a bit lacklustre in her instruction to Polly and I tell her to ask her to "Bring it back!" So Polly brings it to me.
Polly is such a lovely combination of her parents Puddin' and Teagol.
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.
