I'm so pleased to have you visit my Cavaliers' site and hope you've enjoyed your stay and like what you've seen. After a long two years in the planning and developement I've successfully bred my first outstanding litter of this exciting and heart-capturing breed.
As a young girl, up to my mid-thirty's, I spent my life and time in the rodeo arena and had a varying assortment of dogs, mostly those breeds conducive to 'out-in-the-country' life. I loved them all, but they weren't really the kind of dogs you offered your lap to. They were too big. And, in general, they didn't want in your lap. I'd always secretely wanted one of the little long-eared spaniels that most of my peers snickeringly referred to as 'lap dogs'. Couldn't be a real cowgirl with a little 'nipper' in your lap, now could you?
Times have changed since I was involved in the arena life, but I still go every now and then to socialize and watch good friends rope. I'm noticing more and more that our smaller, cute and cuddly breeds are making their show at the end of the status leash. These little 'lap dog' types seem to be finding their way into the hearts and lifestyles of even our most hard working, hard playing, on-the-go and always busy families. It's amazing to watch a giant of a man scoop up a tiny puppy and hold it to his chest with a hand the size of a dinner plate, yet gentle as angel whispers.
After the deaths of several loved dogs I didn't want another one for a couple of years, as is common for those of us who love our furry friends as part of the family. Inevitably, and it happens to us all, I decided I wanted another puppy running around the house, perhaps even two...a little boy and a little girl. Why not? I'd mostly always had only boys.
The search was on! Actually, not a search as much as a major deliberation. Which spaniel did I want? I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of spaniels. Hey, I wanted the one with the long silky ears and cute smile when they panted. I researched them all, did a lot of talking and asking around, but when I laid eyes on the Cavalier my heart screamed "that's the one!" And it is.
If you're looking for the most tender natured, adoring and loving-spirited of the toy dog breeds, you'll find it in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Thank you again for visiting my site. If you have any questions about my dogs or puppies feel free to drop me an e-mail. And don't forget to sign my guestbook if you have any comments, or just want to say 'hi'. I'd love to hear from you!
Yours in fellowship,
