Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

"The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel of today is descended from the small Toy Spaniels seen in many 16th, 17th and 18th Century paintings.   Under the Stuarts they were given the royal title of King Charles Spaniels and King Charles II was seldom seen without two or three at his heels.   So fond was King Charles II of his little dogs, he wrote a decree that the King Charles Spaniel should be accepted in any public place, even in the Houses of Parliament where animals were not usually permitted.   This decree is still in existence today in England." - K9 Web

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are gentle and affectionate, with a great love for people.   A playful, intelligent little dog, the King Charles repays his owner's care and attention with an endearing devotion.   This toy breed has a natural coat, long silky ears, and large soulful eyes.

The original job of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was was to warm laps in drafty castles and on chilly carriage rides.   Cavaliers still take their responsibility quite seriously.
