Updates from Andrew and Pam for Iris (below). One from August and one from a week ago. Hope you had a lovely time in Scotland with Iris.
Iris is from Ernest and Rosie's litter of eleven pups.
Just a quick update. Iris is doing so well, we couldn’t be happier, she has such a lovely character, always happy and enjoying herself. The Brittany is certainly coming through, she caught a french partridge, we think? , a couple of days ago. I’ve attached a photo. She is off her lead most of the time at the woods, loves running off through the long grass and undergrowth, nose always to the ground. Recall is pretty good so far. Currently having 2 25 minute walks a day, she would love more. Great appetite, weight is 5.5 kilos. We are off to Scotland in a couple of days, I’ll send you some more photos, let’s see how she settles away from home
Best wishes Andy & Pam x"
AUGUST update for Iris
I read you’re blog this morning. I hope you are all feeling ok at the moment and are taking care of each other.
I thought I would send you an update on our beautiful Iris. Where do I start !!! She is amazing, Pam and I are both so please with her. She has a great character, loving, mischievous, friendly and confident. She does like the sound of her own voice, we are working on that. The old girls are getting along so well with her, we couldn’t have hoped for anything better.
Iris has been out and about. She has been to a local nature reserve and met the ducks, swans etc. Lots of walks around the park and woods. She loves being off her lead, recall is coming along pretty well. Are you sure about the cavalier, brittany and poodle mix? I reckon there is definitely some greyhound in there as well, those long legs, she can move pretty fast Iris is currently doing 2 15 minute walks a day. She is not a fan of being carried whilst the others are walking. Last weekend we took her to Bakewell to introduce her to all the sights and sounds. It was busy, she coped very well, not stressed by anything, (motorbikes, lorries, pelican crossings) and all the general noises and smells. She got a lot of fuss from strangers and other dogs which she enjoyed. Iris even went for a walk around FatFace.
I’ve attached a few photographs. Take care of yourselves.

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
