Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are toy dogs, named after King Charles 2nd of England who liked this breed. The word "cavalier" probably originally meant "horseman," as in the word "cavalry." King Charles 1st was followed by his cavaliers in the civil war. King Charles 2nd was nicknamed, "The Laughing Cavalier." He was a fun-loving person. Horses were used for transport in those days. (No cars!)

King Charles of England was an imposing sight as he rode around with his cavalcade. But now he is forgotten. Kings & presidents come & go; but God goes on forever. God is not impressed with the size of the cavalry or the army, but he delights in those who fear him. It is He who protects our borders. Psalm 147, verse 10 - 13
