My then partner (now "ex") bred his first litter
under the "Springset" prefix.
This produced the
Multi In-Group winning Springer puppy "Duke" (Springset Midnite Xpres).
He was re-homed to a pet-home at about 8 months old,
and lived to a ripe old age !! :))
He was ex: Aberlour English Lord & Sunford
In April 1997 my ex finally bred our
very first Cavalier litter,
from "Tara" (Westbury Royal Harmony) ...
including "Meg" (Springset Spice Girl).
At her very first show,
Meg won Baby of Breed (7 babies).
The Judge was Cavalier Breed Specialist
"Jenny Egan" - Melloway Cavaliers.
Tragically, Meg died at five months old
from a snake bite.
He bred a 2nd litter from Tara in July '98,
producing "Jive" (Springset Jive Talkn - Tri-colour).
Although being UNBEATEN at Class level ,
Jive was retired from the Show Ring at 10 months
as she was terrified of being "tabled". :((
The "Springset" Prefix was cancelled in 1999,
after noticing another Kennel Prefix
of the same name in USA.
Tara had another litter in May '99.
This was the first ever "ABERLOUR" Cavalier litter
This litter produced my STUNNING girls ...
Aust Champ Aberlour Ya Halos Slipd - aka "Hayley"
(owned by myself), and
Aust Champ Aberlour Yor Hiland Rose - aka "Rosie"
(owned by Merry Pronk, Adelaide).
We lost Hayley to a Stroke just after her 9th Birthday,
and Rosie at 13 years old ! :))
