Other Breeds and Designer Combinations
Tibetan spaniels, affectionately known as "Tibbies," are a small Asian breed in the Toy group. At first glance they bear a slight resemblance to the Pekingese, to whom they're closely related, but Tibbies have a slightly longer snout with a less pronounced underbite and eyes that don't protrude as much as their Chinese cousins.
Tibetan spaniel dogs typically stand 25 to 30cm at the withers and can weigh anywhere from 4 to 7kg. They have a rounded head with wide, expressive, coffee-bean eyes, a blunt snout with a slight under-bite, and pendant ears. One of this breed's most distinctive features is a thick mane around its neck that has earned it the nickname "the little lion".
Tibbies have thick, double-coated fur of moderate length. Their tails tend to be carried high and are covered with a fringed plume of fur that usually lies curled over the dog's lower back. An interesting tidbit of Tibetan spaniel information is that this breed can come in any solid colour or any known colour pattern or combination.
Tibetan spaniels are happy, playful little companions. Watchful and alert, they make good watchdogs, although they are not prone to excessive yapping like some toy breeds.
The Tibetan spaniel dog is energetic and active, but doesn't require a lot of exercise, which makes him an excellent adaptor in any home space. He'll enjoy going on walks but be equally satisfied with play sessions chasing his favourite toys around the house. Tibbies also enjoy snuggling with their people, and they like to perch in high places, such as on the back of a sofa or chair, where they can keep an eye on things.
Tibbies don't need to have their coats trimmed, but they should be brushed a couple times a week to remove dead hair, they will also enjoy this as a massaging session. Tibbies shed twice a year, at change of season, during this time, ask for help as there is a extra tools that are great to remove the excess hair.
Though generally a healthy breed, like many small breeds, Tibbies are prone to patellar luxation, a condition that causes the knee caps to occasionally dislocate. Often this is a minor issue that goes largely unnoticed, although dogs with this disorder tend to be more prone to developing arthritis later in life. If the condition is serious enough to cause your dog chronic pain, it may require corrective surgery.
Tibbies are also genetically prone to canine epilepsy and congenital deafness, as well as eye diseases like progressive retinal atrophy and retinal dysplasia. If you have a Tibbie, you should get his eyes and ears checked regularly.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was bred to warm the laps of humans in drafty castles or on chilly carriage rides. This need and love and connection to humans is still so very strong. A regal and sophisticated appearance, yet charmingly cute and these eyes that just pull you in.
Typically the CKCS matures at a weight of 6-9kg and a height of 30-35cm at the withers. Their face is rounded, and the muzzle full, but mildly tapered. The long, feathered ears, which are set high and wide on the crown, fan forward slightly to frame the face when they are alert. Their neck is fairly long and set atop sloping shoulders.
The chest is moderately deep and the body is compact. The tail carried gaily when in motion. The coat is long, silky and comes in four colour combinations: blenheim (red and white with a partial red mask and ears and red patches on a white body); tricolour (black and white with tan points); ruby (solid red); and black and tan. We have all the four colours available from time to time.
Happy, happy and more happy is the way to describe the world of Cavies. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an enchantingly affectionate, playful, intelligent dog that eagerly indulges its guardians with endearing devotion. They are excellent with children and their desire to interact with their guardians makes them a pleasure to have as a household companion.
