Getting George

George is an English Toy Spaniel (Charlies)…in the states…everywhere else, he is known as a King Charles Spaniel.  People get them mixed up with  Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.  The difference is “the nose”.  Cavaliers have them, Charlies don’t.  They are more like a Pekingnese.

I found out and read about this breed and couldn’t find one.  Then… I got a computer!  It opened up a whole new world to me…in hundreds of ways.

Anyway, I ordered a calendar that had the most beautiful dog in England I’d ever seen.

I just decided to drop the owner a note telling him how lovely I thought his girl was. Much to my surprise he responded. Over the years, we’ve become very close friends.   I am not into showing my dogs and am not a breeder.

After a while, I was able to get George as a puppy from England.  Many in the show crowd over here have tried to get dogs from my friend over there but he is very selective and guards his line closely.  I still am the only person in the states who has some of his dogs.  I have 3 from him now and one from France.  Here is the photo that I saw on that calendar.  She is my George’s aunt.  She won at Crufts.

George is the proud owner of Mrs. Ann Clark. He resides in Northeastern Texas by a lake. Lucky Dog!

    That is a great picture and a beautiful dog. We had an English Cocker Spaniel and she had a long, narrow nose. But, the long, curly ears like this one. She was all black and we loved her very much. Thanks for the story. Great blog by the way.
