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!)
Cavaliers ("Cavies") have long hair, long ears, and short noses. The tail carries a plume of long hair. The long coat needs regular brushing. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel makes a good, playful, loving pet.
They come in a variety of colours.
