This is how it all started . . .

 

The Lord blessed me when I became the proud owner of my first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel girl, Cece. I was so overwhelmed with her affection and unique personality that within a year Prada followed.

 

Thereafter both girls had a puppy girl to became part of our Cavvie companions. Bonny is the daughter of Cece, Luca, the daughter of Prada.

 

Last year Misty followed with her vocal personality. She can have a full conversation with me by growling and many other sounds to be part of our communication. Very unique and very different.

 

I must confess THEY OWN ME . . .I breed only Blenheim Cavaliers. (White and brown silky coat with featherings on paws, in and around ears to be the look of a Spaniel)

I am very proud as many puppies left my house to become part of families, to make a real difference in peoplesí lifes. Until today I still share their excitement and happiness as I am still contacted and receive many photos. It gives me great pleasure to see how buyers experience this wonderful breed, to contact me later buying their second Cavalier.

 

See my page on HAPPY CAVALIER FAMILIES. I received so many feedback from the elderly and families, especially parents with children who find a real friend in them.

 

My girls all had a MRI Scan to proof them save from Syringomyelia, a genetic sickness that has been a matter of concern in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed.

All necessary health checks have been completed to be part of our breeding. My Cavvies comes from a reputable breeder who also met the conditions as part of the Regulations of Kennel Union of SA.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small spaniel classed as a toy dog by The Kennel Club. It is one of the most popular breeds in the United Kingdom. Since 2000, it has grown in popularity in the United States.

 

It is a smaller breed of spaniel, and Cavalier adults are often the same size as adolescent dogs of other spaniel breeds. It has a silky coat and commonly an undocked tail. The breed standard recognizes four colours: Blenheim, Tricolour (black/white/tan), Black and Tan, and Ruby.

 

The breed is generally friendly, affectionate and good with both children and other animals. The King Charles changed drastically in the late 17th century, when it was interbred with flat-nosed breeds. Until the 1920s, the Cavalier shared the same history as the smaller King Charles Spaniel. Breeders attempted to recreate what they considered to be the original configuration of the breed, a dog resembling Charles II's King Charles Spaniel of the Restoration.

 

Various health issues affect this particular breed, most notably mitral valve disease, which leads to heart failure. This appears in most Cavaliers at some point in their lives and is the most common cause of death. The breed may also suffer from syringomyelia, in which cavities are formed in the spinal cord, possibly associated with malformation of the skull that reduces the space available for the brain.

 

Cavaliers are also affected by ear problems, a common health problem among spaniels of various types, and they can suffer from such other general maladies as hip dysplasia, which are common across many types of dog breeds. Read more about Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed here
