Best Breed Ever! Cavalier King Charles Spaniels!
Cavaliers came from the spaniel line, originating in 1600s England.
Cavaliers were once used as lap and feet warmers for royalty.
Cavaliers were also used for attracting fleas from their owners’ bodies.
After WWII, only 6 Cavaliers survived. All modern Cavaliers can be traced to those 6.

still need their daily exercise. Cavaliers are friendly with other dogs, pets,
kids, adults, grandparents, and strangers. Cavaliers come in 4 color varieties.
