Just got this photo of three of the Poundlane pack enjoying the evening sun. The three dogs are from the left clockwise Henry (Brittany Spaniel), Jessica (Cavalier) and then Millie (Cavalier). Henry is the father of Smudge's litter. Millie is the mother of Smudge, so the Grandmother of Smudge's pups and Jessica's has one Grandfather the same as Smudge, which was the father of Millie.
When you look at this photo, you can see that the crossing of the Brittany with the Cavalier does not look so out there.
From Henry and Smudge's litter we have kept back two girls and these now are the next generation at Poundlane.
Bumble is one of the girls we are keeping back.
I was not sure of her at first and thought she had a slightly sulky look to her, but she has become a very pretty, gentle natured girl and in the litter probably has the most Cavalier looking face. I think if anyone looked at these photos without knowing anything about her, they would think she was a pure Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
The other girl we are keeping is Blottie. She was always going to be kept I think, just because she has a Smudge of brown on her lip, so keeping with her mother Smudge's smudge of brown on her lip.
She is a bit more handsome about the face than pretty, a bit more towards the Brittany. She also is a lovely gentle friendly girl like Bumble.
Both these girls are strong healthy pups and it is with great interest I will watch them grow in to adult dogs and hope that they will produce the next Poundlane generation on from them .
The slideshow is Smudge's pups today now eight weeks and three days old. Look out for the two Alfies.
After Harry left on Saturday, there are now eight of Smudge's pups left. We still have one boy Freckle Nose available, if interested email me at email@example.com
