Elly sent me this lovely update (below) for Missy, the last week in August. Missy is from Ernest and Rosie's litter of eleven pups.
I've been meaning to write to you with an update on Missy and to express how sorry I am for your loss of Teagol. She was an absolutely lovely dog and I can imagine this has been a very challenging time. Sending all my best wishes to you and your family.
As for Missy, she is growing into a gorgeous dog who brings me joy every day. She is ultra-confident and nothing phases her. She bolts around the parks and loves nothing more than to meet new people and dogs. She is a master of London's public transport and happily jumps on the Overground, train, taxi or bus with me.
She is submissive when meeting a new dog - for about 5 seconds! She then tends to launch herself straight at the other dog's face and continues to give them kisses until one of us has to leave. Other dogs and their owners love her and she gets bundles of attention when she's out on walks.
We also took her to Wales last week where she went to the beach for the first time and absolutely loved it. She also made friends with the local animals - pigs, sheep, donkeys and even alpacas!
She is pretty good about being left alone although she is with me most of the time. I am looking into dog sitting options for when I have to eventually return to the office 1-2 days a week. Toilet training is progressing although we do still have occasional accidents and she hates going out at night as she gets scared by the shadows!
I thought I'd attach a few of her funniest pictures - you can see why she makes me laugh every day.
All my best wishes,
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
