Teeth Cleaning

When you get your dogs teeth cleaned they usually order blood work.  This can be devastating if the vet isn't aware of the Cavaliers benign condition in this breed.  You may find this a strange statement but it happens all the time.  I have an example right now. Running a bunch of unnecessary test can cost a fortune and be totally wrong,

PANIC!!!

Panic for nothing. Over half of all cavalier King Charles spaniels may have both abnormally low number of platelets and also have oversized platelets in their blood.

BOGI IS MY LATEST ALERT

Platelets usually are the smallest cells in the blood system.  They serve to bind together and clot when they come in contact with a damaged blood vessel.

Despite the low platelet counts, the typical cavalier's blood platelets function normally, and the dog does not appear to experience any health problems due to either the size or fewer numbers of its platelets..

Excessively low platelet counts normally is a sign which tends to alarm general practice veterinarians, and so it is vitally important that cavalier owners alert their vets about this benign condition. Other dog with this similar  condition are Japanese Akita, Cairn terrier and Norfolk terrier.

Treatment

No treatment is recommended unless the dog shows other symptoms of a blood-related disorder. Cavaliers should not be treated for immune-medicated thrombocytopenia (IMT) as a precaution.

THIS GIRL IS GONE. SHE JUST GOT A BATH SO SHE'S WET.

 ONCE MY BABIES ARE BROUGHT OUT OF THE BEDROOM AROUND 3 WEEKS THEY ARE NEVER MORE THAN A FEW STEPS FROM ME OR ANYONE.  

About Us

We have wonderful Cavaliers!

I first saw a Tri Color female King Charles in a restaurant in St Nazaire, France.  I was so taken by her beauty, obedience, size and eyes that projected love.  I just fell in love instantly.  I returned home and immediately went to work studying this breed.  I was struck by the Cavalier lightning bolt!

That was over 40 years ago!!

The lightning bolt has never left.  Every baby I touch has that special charm.  You really cannot explain it unless you have had a King Charles.  They are the sweetest dog on the planet.  Smart too.  I have mine trained so fast that even I'm surprised sometimes.  They are such sturdy little dogs. This is not a foo foo dog.  They are just amazing.  Looking at this picture I yearn for my dark hair. haha

Frenchie (Tri) and Pierre (Blenheim) Started Me

The true purpose of this breed has always been that of a companion dog.  The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is the number one toy dog in England.  The first Cavaliers were sent to America in 1952 by Lady Forwood as a gift.  When I started out no one even knew what a Cavalier was here in Colorado.  All my pups went to the east and west coast.  These two Cavaliers started my business in the 1980's. Their names were Frenchie and Pierre.  Just Perfect.  Great temperament and size.  The whole package and I didn't really know at the time how perfect these two were.  I feel like they were magically sent my way and I was lucky to have such a perfect start to my future of these amazing dogs.
