Had a great time at the Palmetto Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Specialty Show and the AKC Charleston Kennel Club Dog Show in Charleston, SC last weekend. Premiered a new boy named Bentwood Forestcreek Rob Red. It was his first time in the dog show ring and although we were learning each other he was a good cavalier! We did trot away with a Reserve Winners Dog Ribbon out of a very competitive challenge! Special thanks to respected breeder Judge David Kirkland. Huge thanks to breeders/ co-owners Ginger Harrison and Kevin Cline for trusting me with this beautiful new boy. Congrats to Paula Lynn Ayers, Michelle M Jones, Jim Shreffler and Linda Whitmire, for their wins.
The light fades with the sunset, but the memories wont.
The Cavalier Spaniel breed is bred to be a lap dog. My Cavalier King Charles Spaniels certainly live up to that reputation and are excellent snuggle bugs. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels do sleep away a good bit of the day - a fact one shouldn’t be either surprised or concerned about.
Great time at the Chesapeake Bay CKCS Club Fun Match! Today was my six year old son Josiah's first time showing...He got a lot of practice thanks to friends and willing pups :) It was a lot of fun and thanks to the club for hosting the event. Bentwood Distinction "Lincoln" was also Best Puppy in Fun Match. That was nice too! :)
Some people wonder if cavaliers are a good fit with children? It is always important to monitor children and cavaliers, but I think they make excellent pets for children. Cavalier king Charles Spaniels are sweet tempered, playful, and very yet gentle.

One of the great joys of my life is being owned by my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
