Our love affair with this special breed began in 1979 whilst still living in the UK . We bred 4 litters over an 8 year period and dabbled our feet in the show ring occasionally also. Moving to Australia in 1989, we had to leave our 2 remaining ‘oldies' behind with friends and decided they were unreplaceable. Thus we had no Cavaliers in our lives for a while, instead indulging our love of other breeds, including Newfoundlands and Bernese Mountain Dogs…
Eventually the Cavalier bug became too strong and our first ‘Aussie' Cavalier joined us in 1999, and was soon followed by more.. Since then we have become very involved with the breed, exhibiting on a regular basis & breeding occasionally. We are founding members of the CKCS Club of Qld, and currently hold committee positions (Treasurer and Secretary).
We have been greatly helped over the years by a number of people who I would like to thank here….
Phil Martin - for recognising we were serious and allowing us to own one of his special girls.
Bev Genders & Jodie Wright – For being great friends, objective critics and willing room mates on those trips away from home. We would not be where we are today without them.
Wendy Weaver – For entrusting us with our special boy ‘Leo', who marked a turning point in our hopes and dreams (hence his name…). A special lady and good friend.
Ann & Chris Beare – They are dear and trusted friends, providing advice and support freely. It is all appreciated more then we can say, thanks so much girls...
And last but never least….
Marilyn Madigan - Another trusted friend who has given us more opportunities than we could have hoped for.
