1st Birthday update for Iris, who is from Ernest and Rosie's litter. A little belated as Iris had a bit of an upset as she ended her first year but is better now.
Hope you are all well. Happy Birthday weekend to all of Iris’s siblings. I’ve attached a few photos of her first year. She is such an amazing dog. She has a great on off switch. Iris goes to the woods most evenings and just runs and runs, she never stops. At home she loves to play, fetching toys and enjoys me hiding her pink pencil case stuffed with treats. She has a great nose. Iris enjoys cuddles on the sofa, often rests her head on my shoulder and falls to sleep. She’s a little nervous around other dogs, on the park she’s not that bothered about them, prefers to follow her nose. Training is coming on very well. Recall is excellent. We couldn’t have wished for a better addition to our family we love her to bits, constantly makes us smile.
As you know we lost Mabel in October and Lily in March. Iris has coped well and has started to get her spark back now which she lost for a while
She ended her first year in style with a trip to the vets last week at 11.00 pm. She stared vomiting, then her face became swollen and then projectile Diarrhoea. We live very close to our vets which is handy. She recovered quickly, we're not sure what caused it. The vet who was on duty hadn’t previously met her. He thought she was great, very impressed.
Best wishes Andy, Pam and Iris xx"

“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
