I first stumbled upon Cavalier King Charles Spaniels over 25 years ago when I was at my Vet's office with my Shih-Tzu, Tiffy. I picked up a magazine and there was a picture of the most beautiful dog I had ever seen. I was instantly smitten. I spent the next 5 years researching and reading everything I could find about Cavaliers. I emailed and called numerous people most of which came across as very snobbish and unwilling to share much information. (at the time I only wanted one pet Cavalier) After 5 years of trying to purchase a Cavalier pet; I just knew there had to be a better way! I had experience breeding dogs so this prompted me to breed these magnificent dogs to make things better for others. Finally, after such a long wait and years of searching...I was able to purchase two beautiful tri-colored sisters (Carly & Cami) from a champion grandfather. About 6 months later I was able to purchase my first blenheim male, Cody. (from Telvari Kopyright fame) I was very selective in purchasing my Cavaliers as I wanted the best quality for breeding.
Our dogs are part of the family. We love them dearly and especially love sharing our gorgeous puppies with other people. I promise to treat you the way I wish I had been treated during my long process of getting a Cavalier.
I taught middle school for 17 years before retiring "early" to be home with my babies. I am home with them every single day and loving every minute of it! God has been so good to me!
Along the way I started getting lots of phone calls from people that have allergies and cannot tolerate shedding. They would ask if I knew of another breed that was similar to a Cavalier but with no shedding. Cody's breeder called one day to tell me about a new breed she started raising called, Havanese. (For the very same reasons.) After several years of research I decided to try them. Now I raise Cavaliers and Havanese. Cavaliers are my favorite breed but Havanese are a close second! They both get along so well and are true blessings to me.
I have been married for 42 years to my high school sweetheart, Andy. We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. I love my Lord, Jesus Christ with all my heart and strive daily to be a better Christian and witness for him.
