Teagol and her seven little pups have got through their first night together safely.
Teagol gave birth relatively easily, if you can ever call giving birth easy. The first pup was born backwards with a little assistance from me at 10.50 am, a girl weighing 8 3/4 ounces. The second pup arrived backwards at 11.55 am, a boy weighing 7 3/8 ounces. Then very quickly another arrived backwards at 11.57 am being the tiddler of the litter, a boy weighing 6 1/8 ounces. The fourth puppy arrived forwards at 12.30 pm, a girl weighing 6 3/4 ounces. The fifth pup arrived forwards at 1.33 pm, a girl weighing 8 7/8 ounces. The sixth pup arrived forwards at 1.55 pm, a boy weighing 8 1/2 ounces. Then the seventh and last pup arrived forwards at 2.35 pm, a girl weighing 7 1/8 ounces. All placentas were accounted for as each pup was born.

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
