     Hi Folks, once again I feel the need to apologize for not posting - at least occasionally. I know that at lease a few of you like to keep up with what's going on at Mayfair Cavaliers. As usual, Robbie is still working very hard at her place of employment as well as at home. And me, well I'm lounging around at home. This time because I foolishly broke my right femur. Silly me. I don't recommend it.
     You might, by now, be wondering why I have posted a couple of photographs of a very attractive, eight week old, male, tri-color puppy. Unfortunately, the person who was number one on our waiting list and had selected this little guy was not able to follow through with the placement.

GCh Mayfair Elfindale (Elfie) - Born August 6, 2018, Elfie's second litter is two days old in this photo. Their eyes and ears are closed, and all they can do at this point is eat and move around just a little bit by using swimming motions. They're healthy and are eating well. Yea!

Robbie and I are very happy to announce that Grand Champion (GCh) Mayfair Elfindale is pregnant and due around August 7th or 8th.

Tillie's Pups

Hi folks. Sorry for the long gap in updates. I've resolved my technical issues (with a little help from my friends), and I'll start with our latest: our dear little Tillie has had her first litter - one girl and three boys. They're five weeks old, their eyes and ears are open, they're walking, running, biting, and very, very curious - as into everything. In my next post, I'll introduce you to Elfie. She's a lovely little tri-color and hopefully, our next little mother.

Sarah and Pixie

Top photo, Sarah at 7 years old, was entered in the Veteran Bitches class at a recent Beverly Hills Kennel Club show. She was awarded Best Veteran and Best of Opposite Sex. Yes, she does still "have it". Sarah and Pixie (bottom photo), Sarah's littermate, are both AKC Champions and Grand Champions.

And Pixie is pregnant. Due in the first week of April. Robbie and our veterinarian think she has three to four puppies. Yea! But I'm holding out for five or six.

Our very best wishes for you, Robbie and Chuck

New puppies

Our Thanksgiving Blessings: two gorgeous little boys... In the first photo, they're two weeks old; and in the second, they're four weeks old. It's fascinating watching them grow so fast, both mentally and physically. In the first photo, they're about 7.5 oz. each. In the second, a mere two weeks later, they've grown to about 1.5 pounds apiece. In the first, their eyes and ears are closed and they use a swimming motion to move around their whelping box. In the second photo (a mere two weeks later), their eyes and ears are open, they're walking (more or less) upright on their four paws, and they've become aware of their littermates. And, as you can see, they're already beginning to look like little dogs - and very pretty ones at that. Will keep you posted.

Dina's Puppies

Since we are celebrating Dina's puppies, I want to share with you one of my favorite photos. When Dina was 12 to 14 weeks old, she would follow me around when I was working in our back garden. I don't know whether it was the pure joy of being with me or her interest in landscaping, but I grew to really love her companionship while I worked. In the above photo (taken by Robbie), we were inspecting something in the planter. Dina left us when she was 14 or 15 weeks old to live with Linda and Dave Frieden. She's back with us for about 12 weeks to birth ("whelp" for the purist) and raise the puppies.

Out thanks to Linda and Dave. We know they really miss Dina a lot.
