Let's Talk

Basic common Sense

When you get your puppy home make sure you treat them like you would a new child.  Look them over and do not over excite them.  Let them warm up to all the new people, smells, furnishings and yards.

Don't over excite!!!

I had one lady say that she took them home and went out in the backyard and ran and ran.  When she finally wanted to come in the puppy was squeamish and wanted to stay out, Wiggling back an forth like crazy when she picked him up.  She was upset at the puppy thinking he was wild.  This is not so.  She over excitd him.  Can't do this.  They are both fine.

Don't go visiting all over!

Keep your puppy home till they are comfortable with their new family and home.  They have time to meet everyone in due time.

Get Your Puppy To The Vet For Three Day Visit!

It's recommended you take the puppy to the vet within 3 days of pick up to rest your mind they are healthy. You have three days to complain.  This is for your protection and mine.  No refunds if you come up with something down the road.

Meeting other dogs and animals.

I say this all the time, I don't recommend this.  They do not have all their shots yet and can contact numerous things including mites and lice and such.  

Be Civil Please

I am a dedicated breeder and there is great joy in a pet.  If you have any questions or concerns please call.  I don't do screaming or crazy very well.

THE GIRLS CAN ALSO CYCLE DIFFERENTLY.  THEY CIAN BE EARLY OR LATE.  I AM EXPECTING BABIES WILL BE DELIVERED AROUND MID JUNE AND MID JULY.  THAT'S ALL I HAVE RIGHT NOW.

Let's talk Platelets and Cavaliers.

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, I use Himalayan Yak Chews from Amazon.  They cut back cleaning.  They're in a clear bag with baby blue mountains on the top of the package.

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.

The Gang

 This is Piper.  She is full of fun.  Love her dainty face and beautiful markings.  She's a lover and too smart for her own good.  She teases a lot.  Great personality.

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!

image326

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.
