We now enter what I see as the "Dirty phase" with puppies. This is when they start to eat solids and Mum starts to not be so keen to clean up after them. As they start to get the hang of eating. They can often end up with more on them than in them and as they start to toilet freestyle (they don't need Mum to lick them to stimulate them to pee or poop) they can often end getting poop all over them or over their siblings.
So we have to be armed and ready at all times for Poogeddon. This involves toilet rolls in strategic positions easy to hand and wet wipes to clean up any unfortunate pup. So the work starts here, as we strive to keep the pups clean and transition them to learning to toilet outside by six weeks old.

“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
