Royal Reflection Cavaliers
History In Pictures
The History In Pictures is quite a project, albeit one worthy of the task. It is taking longer than I anticipated to put it all together. Please check back in on my progress from time to time. In the mean time, check out the following links for some conventional Cavalier King Charles Spaniel history.
- Wikipedia A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel history
- The Kennel Club (UK) A very brief history and cute video from YouTube of a typical Cavalier trying to induce play.
- The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club In 1928 a club was founded, and the title "Cavalier King Charles Spaniel" was chosen. At the first meeting, held the second day of Cruft's Dog Show, 1928, the standard of the breed was drawn up, and it was practically the same as it is today.
- The Significant Others Take a look at all of the champions this copyrighted article by Norma Inglis of Craigowl Cavalier King Charles Spaniels lists as "Which dogs and bitches in all of the four colours have made significant improvements to the breed in the United Kingdom in the last quarter of a Century, since that historic day in 1973 when Ch. Alansmere Aquarius won Best In Show at Crufts?" Now take another look at Macorville Lad's pedigree. I can't help it, I'm still preening over my decision to buy him. If you're looking for excellence in quality and breeding, look at Macorville Lad x Skirk's Calypso Shi'ich pups! Skirk's Calypso Shi'ich, Grace, shares with Macorville Lad, Chivas 18, in a number of champions, but she especially goes back to the Homerbrent, Homaranne, Salador, Tnegun (Irish), Ottermouth, Crisdig and Ttiweh champions including English, Irish, Australian, South American, South African and a large handful of International Champions. On one of her ancestors 6 generation pedigree alone I counted 46 champions!
- That's all for now...I'll keep working on the History In Pictures page. It is very interesting to see how the small spaniel of King Charles II's time (and obviously earlier), one of very few widely represented in portraits and paintings, progressed down through the ages to us as the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
