Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

This was the breed I had set my heart on when I first decided to get a dog, but changed my mind due to worries about the health of these little dogs. It's interesting to look at earlier art which include Cavaliers in the composition - Henry Wyatt, Edward Landseer - you can see the dog's muzzle is longer and its head rounder. There are some paintings here at  the Tate. I liked this one best by Henry Wyatt. Hope it is OK to reproduce. The painting - and the image of it - belongs to the Tate
'Vigilance", Henry Wyatt
