The Dog Days of Summer Greet Club Members
Nearly thirty members of the Oregon Trail Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club were hosted by Jack and Mary Graff on the shores of Devils Lake. Guests in attendance came from as far away as Seattle Washington and Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom. Dogs outnumbered humans and a good time was had by all on what turned out to be a beautiful day on the lake.
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small breed of Spaniel-type dog, and is classed as a Toy dog by most Kennel Clubs. It is one of the most popular breeds in the United Kingdom. Since 2000, it has been growing in popularity in the United States. It is a smaller breed of Spaniel, and Cavalier adults are often the same size as adolescent dogs of other spaniel breeds. It has a silky coat and commonly an undocked tail. The breed standard recognizes four colours (Blenheim, Tricolour [black/white/tan], Black and Tan, and Ruby). The breed is generally friendly, affectionate and good with both children and other animals.
The Oregon Trail Cavalier Club mission is to preserve, protect and carefully promote Cavaliers, having accepted the responsibility for the future of the breed within the state of Oregon. You can view our photo album of the event or view the photos from the club site.
