picture was taken when she was two years old. Doesn't she look great
as a French painter? Amanda is the most loving animal I've ever had!
She is well mannered, loves people, loves to go to the beach, and gives
affection to all she comes across (even the homeless!). I'm blessed to
have such a warm and adoring pet.
What makes Amanda special, and this breed in particular, is their loving
nature and the expressive eyes and ears. They are completely capable of
turning the toughest heart into putty with a glance or two. Cavaliers
are loyal and wonderful with children.
Amanda loves to be in the company of people and feels completely at home
in someones lap.
Amanda stands about 13" high and weights 18lbs. Cavalier King Charles
Spaniels are the royal dogs of England. They were common in the 17th
century paintings and tapestries have been found that date back to the
15th century. Cavaliers are the largest of the toy breed and are often
referred to as Toy Spaniels. The breed fell out of favor with the Kings
in the 18th century and could no longer be found. In the early 1920's
an American woman offered a cash prize for anyone who could produce a
dog with the characteristics of the ones seen in the portraits of the
17th century (all that could now be found were pug faced dogs with domed
shaped heads and low-set ears). A dog was eventually produced that
matched the paintings - longer snout, flat head, and high-set ears. The
term Cavalier was added to distinguish the breeds.
