I have a bit of a dilemma as my lovely girl Millie has just come on heat. The dilemma is to go back on what I said a few blogs ago about breeding Cavaliers this year & I have argued this point with myself with the fact that Millie is what I feel a Cavalier should look like & last year Millie after giving birth easily to three pups then after the next came backwards with its legs back which is just bad luck had a caesarean to produce her next 3 pups & ended up with 6 vigorous Cavalier pups. After this my vet said that "she felt that because it was just a matter of a pup being in an impossible position to be born that is just down to bad luck & she easily gave birth to pups that had presented correctly that she feels that it would be okay to breed from her again" but if she now was to have to have another caesarean it would then be her last litter & she would be spayed. It would not be good or ethical to breed from a bitch after having two caesareans although there are breeders that do. In 2013 the Kennel Club will not register pups from a dog who has had more than two caesareans as from veterinary & breeder advice feel it compromises the welfare of the bitch.
Back to Millie though & taking my arguement into account & this could potentially be Millie's last litter & I wish to have another girl Cavalier back from her so I have decided to breed her to Bobby are young tricoloured Cavalier boy who is in good health & so as the saying goes you should never say never. He is a very well marked tricolour so with Millie's lovely markings will have high expectations for the standard & marking of these pups. This mating should produce robust, athletic, very elegant & loving Cavaliers. The head of these pups should be elegant with a shallow stop which is the breed standard with a good nose especially for sniffing out squirrels ,rabbits etc.
If interested in this mating please contact us by email howarthmurch@btinternet or phone 01769560969. This will be the only litter of Cavaliers that we breed this year.
