As most know we lost Millie earlier this year and she was exceptionally close to our son Alfie. His birthday the beginning of October and a month before it, he just said (whilst looking at a painting of some of our dogs), "I wouldn't mind a painting of Millie."
I thought, I know just the person for that job and contacted Heather who is Munchkinmay. Heather's family have Albey, who is our Ernest's litter sibling from Toby and Treacle's litter. Heather sent me some lovely photos of Albey (below) taken this year (looking so much like his niece Lottie) and also although busy, would try hard to get a painting of Millie done for his birthday.
Heather got it done in time for me to give it to Alfie on his birthday. He was very touched by Heather's likeness of Millie. Millie now takes pride of place in his bedroom. You can see Heather's creative process and end result below. Thanks Heather!
I have commissioned another painting from Heather. A group painting of our dogs, which she hopes to start for me in the New Year.
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
