Our puppies have found wonderful forever homes. It warms our hearts. We are not planning any further litters this year. Thank you all for your interest.


Our Magnum PI is now in training to be a service dog and we are so proud of him! He is now working with the Citadel Canine Society. See the attached link on our home page to read more about this great cause.  

 

SILKCASTLE TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART - 2013 litter - son of BERLIN 

 

Big congratulations to out Wendy at Dawnaquinn and "Berlin" who took Best in Show AND Best Puppy in Show at the Nationals! Berlin rocked it....

Welcome to our website. My name is Cathy Paradis and I am a small breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. My husband and I are fortunate to have four cavaliers (and one pap) in our lives. They are house dogs, sleep on our bed and get spoiled rotten. It is very difficult not to spoil these little darlings.

Since the 16th century these little spaniels have been pets of royalty in England. They are known for their sweet smiling faces, the matching sweet personality, and their constantly wagging tail. They are an inside dog and love to be near people. They stand 12-13 inches at the shoulder and weigh 13-18 pounds, with some variation accepted. Cavaliers are called “wash and wear” spaniels because they require very little grooming. They are considered a “toy” and can be found in the Toy Group of the Canadian Kennel Club. There are 4 colors: Chestnut Red and White (called “Blenheim”), the Tri-color (Black and White with Tan points), Black and Tan, and Ruby (solid Chestnut Red). I was first drawn to the Black and Tan because they are rare and were seldom seen in the show ring yet are amazingly beautiful but also have a tri-color girl that is our little princess. Each color has its own beauty and all have the hallmark Cavalier spirit and sweetness.

Our Magnum PI finished #8 Cavalier in Canada for 2009 and top wholecolor for the second year. He was only in 3 shows....we are very proud! He is retired from the ring and enjoying being at home.
