The Gang

 

 

I sometimes place older puppies or adults as pets.  If a young adult is currently for sale or might be for sale in the next year or so, that's noted under her (or his) name.  All older puppies / young adults are used to living as pets and well trained.  Not just housetrained (though they are all completely housetrained), but really trained; all the adults have one or more obedience titles.  All come, like my puppies, with health guarantees.  Each is available only to excellent homes that will be a good fit for the individual personality of the dog.  If you're looking for a wonderful pet, one of my young adults might be perfect for you, so contact me and let me know what you're looking for in a dog.

At the moment, I probably do not have any young adults available. Jos became available early in 2017, but is now spoken for and will most likely be going to his wonderful new home in a month or so.

If you are interested in an older puppy, though, feel free to contact me. Possibly one of mine will have become available, or I will do my best to direct you to another reputable breeders who might have a young adult available.

Here's the full Anara Gang at the moment:

 

Pippa  -- Queen of All She Surveys.  Eight performance titles so far, working on her Rally AE . . . and soooo photogenic!

Unfortunately, Pippa had pyometra when she was carrying her second litter.  She lost the litter and had to be spayed, so her job now is to rule over the household, look lovely, and wow 'em in the performance rings.  She was almost always the most glamorous dog in any obedience ring, but she has retired from that too now that she is completely deaf -- though she is still my best "demo" dog because she does such beautiful obedience with hand signals.

Of the whole crowd, Pippa is my dog more than any other. She never lets me out of her sight. 

 

 

 

Adora -- My beautiful ruby girl.  Six performance titles so far, and quite a few championship points to boot.  She always showed beautifully, though her two natural gaits are the bounce and the twirl.  Alas, she, too, developed pyometra and was spayed before she could finish her championship. 

Adora did produce one pretty daughter for me, Folly (shown below), before she had to be spayed.

 

 

 

AKC Ch Roycroft Kenya Camaroon --  A very pretty little girl with wonderful parents, I couldn't resist buying her when she became available. Kenya completed her AKC and International Championships and her first two Rally titles before retiring from the show ring. 

Kenya has not had much success in the whelping box, producing just three living puppies total in four litters (Giedre, then Honey, then Jos).  She is now spayed and retired. She never much cared for showing, so she is enjoying a life of lying on velvet cushions eating bonbons.

 

 

Eve -- Look at that topline!  Look at that rear!  Her front is fabulous, too, and, as you'd expect, so is her movement.  Plus she obviously has tons of bone.  Eve is a daughter of Bree, Adora's half-sister, who had one litter.  Eve turned out to be is a fantastic youngster.  She is shown here at 7 months old.

Update:  In just about her first time out, Eve won Best of Breed over Ch. Orchard Hill Tough Enough JW.  Way to go, Eve!

Eve has also finished off Novice and Advanced Rally titles, finishing the second title the same day she won BOB in the conformation ring.  She's smart as a whip.

Eve has gone to a pet home,  but she did pick up her International Championship. 

 

Anara Frivolity, called Folly, Adora's daughter.  She has a pretty head, doesn't she, and such a sweet expression.  She is a charming youngster, very willing and extremely sensitive, a natural in the performance ring.

I bred Folly in early 2014, but though the timing should have been good, the breeding did not take.  Though she is charming and sweet and pretty, I will not be trying again with her. Folly has moved to a pet home.

 

 

 

 

Giedre , Kenya's older daughter, is two years old.  She really seems to have taken after her father, Ch Jayba Pucker Up JW -- she is a stocky, solid girl.  She is also steadier in temperament than her flighty mother and is quite the little lap puppy.

Giedre has perfect proportions, great bone, great angulation, good movement -- basically the whole package except for also having a slight underbite.  Giedre has produced a single puppy, a little son who looks very promising.  However, I will not breed her again.  Giedre has moved to a great pet home where she can be the center of attention.

 

 

 

 

Honey, Kenya's younger daughter, shown here at four years.  Honey, true to her name, is exceptionally sweet even for a Cavalier; an easy and delightful pet as well as fun to show.

Honey, actually AKC Ch Anara Honeysuckle Rose RN RA, won three  majors out of the puppy classes, then had pick up those annoying single points. She has a couple cosmetic flaws -- a white sclera in one eye, and obviously that kiss mark on her nose -- but she finished so easily because of her extremely good structure and movement.

Honey never took a decent win photo, but she is the best-structured of all my girls. She fulfilled my hopes in early 2017 by giving me three very nice puppies, all with pretty heads as well as good structure.  Scroll down a bit for a look at Honey's excellent puppies!

 

 

 

Ishmael.  Giedre's little son, Ish, has grown into a beautiful dog with a lovely head and a body to match, but at three, his bite is still off a tiny bit.  Despite that cosmetic failing, I hope that he will be a cornerstone of my attempt to breed glamorous, beautiful Cavaliers that live forever.  He also has the sweetest, most accommodating, most easy-going temperament of just about any puppy I've ever bred.

 

 

 

 

Chloe. This is Fox Creek Demeter, daughter of CKCSC Ch Chantismere Chandos of Valentyne, JW and Kinvaar La Esperanto. In contrast to Kenya, Chloe's mother has had no trouble at all carrying litters to term and has produced beautiful puppies. I am hoping Chloe will take after her mother in those respects.

Chloe is excitable: she does about twenty things in the time most Cavaliers do one. Intense and with tremendous drive, Chloe is very demanding to show. She has completed her Rally Novice title, but she really does not care for the breed ring. Perhaps in a year or two I will show her, but I feel it is best to let her settle down a little bit first.

Chloe has very nice structure and movement and beautiful eyes. I hope she will give me lovely puppies. She is not available to a pet home.

 

 

 

 

Jos, Ishmael's and Kenya's son, is now a little over one year. Easy to work with, attentive, and willing, Jos had no problem earning his Rally Novice title, but I haven't shown him in the breed ring because although his bite is perfect, he has a cosmetic flaw of his own -- a white sclera in each eye. I don't believe he will ever match Ish for sheer glamour, but he is a nice youngster with good structure, bone, and proportions.

Jos became available to a pet home early in 2017 but is now spoken for.

 

 

 

 

New arrivals this spring: Kimmie and Conner. Born early in January 2017, these babies are more formally known as Anara Kimberlyn Rose and Anara Konstantine. They both show great promise and I look forward to showing them the minute they are old enough.
