Cheeky Little Devils, Issue #22 -- the latest from the website plus stuff you won't see elsewhere!
May 10, 2013

Spring always makes me think of fresh starts and puppies, and for us it's been a time for the little ones. The last litter was born a couple of days ago. We like to say that all newborns are Best in Show winners; then as they grow, reality sets in. But more importantly, we can be pretty sure that all of the current crop will make wonderful pets, with good health, stable temperaments and the cheerful cheekiness our Silkys are known for.
What Makes a Responsible Breeder
for all the details.
It's All Been Said Before -- Quotes Cards For All OccasionsCards are more than just for Christmas, that's for sure. A good one not only lets the recipient know how you feel, but that you care. And if it's small dog related, even better!
This is a pilot project for us so we are interested in your feedback. What do you think? Are these cards you would be interested in? Do you have a favorite quote (or two) you'd like us to illustrate? Let us know! This one is called PUPPY THERAPY.
You Asked For It, You Got It -- More Pictures!Information is all very well and good, and yes, it can be useful in the end, but don't you think that the fun part of any website are all the photos and drawings? Well I do, so I have been doing some brand new pages and updating many old ones with more photographs -- lots of them. As always, all the photos are taken by me personally (very occasionally I'm given photos from others'). We never buy stock photos and of course we never rip off others' prints.
So check these out -- and enjoy!

Here's another un-terrier, one of the most recently developed breeds, and the national dog of the Czech Republic. Check out: Cesky Terriers
English Toy Spaniels
If a Cesky is an un-terrier, you could call this rare breed an un-Cavalier. English Toy Spaniels are actually much older than their more popular cousins the Cavalier, but are otherwise quite similar. Check out for the details: English Toy Spaniels
This delightful dog actually comes in 5 sizes in its native Germany. Pictures here is the Medium, about 13 inches at the shoulder, the size of a Boston or a Cairn Terrier. They are the ancestor of the Pomeranian, and share that breed's cheerful and friendly attitude. Check out the page: Spitz
Revised Pekingese Page
One can argue that a Pekingese resembles fur on wheels, but those in the know know that these dogs make sweet and extremely loyal companions. Check out the revised page with lots more pictures at the Revised Pekingese Page
Revised Japanese Chin Page
We have lots of new pictures of this sweet breed. Check out: Revised Japanese Chin Page
