“TAFFY” aka Wyndcrest Butterscotch, bred by Harold and Joan Letterly USA, recently turned 14 1/2 years old and is still heart clear. Her owner Jean Yokley (Ladybrook Cavaliers. Arizona) says "She moves a bit slower, except for meal time and has selective hearing. She is a joy!"
and if she is on the look out for a boyfriend ......
she might cast an eye over the handsome HARANA JAZZIE JEFF who turned 14 on 26th May 2010. Lucy (Koster) says "He is such a sweet boy - did a fair amount of winning in his young days and took a RCC. His forte was as a sire - in the relatively few litters he produced, he sired 2 Champions, another CC & RCC winner and the Best Puppy at Crufts in 200. Above all that, he is just such a sweet character. Photos taken on his birthday - he is such a poseur!"
"Taffy" and "Jazzie Jeff" on behalf of the Cavalier community world wide, we salute you.
