Rosie's pups reach seven weeks old today. That crept up rather fast. Quin has become Sacha and she will be the first to leave us, next Sunday but she is only going to Winkleigh to live with Otto, who is one of Polly's litter siblings, so not far. My oldest child was rather sweet on Sacha when he was home on leave.
The pups have started adventuring beyond the patio gate (below) and are enjoying feeling grass beneath their paws and learning how to negotiate gradients.
We also are seeing good dribbling skills (below) developing. The pups whimpering in the background (below) of the videos is because we had just shut the gate of the patio and a couple of them wanted to be off adventuring again.

“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
