Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Info

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel History

Early Cavalier King Charles SpanielSmall spaniels were used to flush and hunt birds in Great Britain as early as 1016, according to the scant records from this time.  These small spaniels left their hunting days behind them to become the preferred companion of the rich and royal. Many little spaniel type dogs were seen in 16th, 17th, and 18th century paintings of royalty and life at court. Artists who painted the Royal Spaniels included Titian, Van Dyck, Lely, Stubbs, Gainsborough, Reynolds, and Romney.

Both King Charles I and King Charles II (during the 1600s) were smitten with the little spaniels and as you probably figured out by now, they were named for King Charles II. They were crossed with Pugs and the Japanese Chin during the Victorian Era and became what we call the English Toy Spaniel, the King Charles Spaniel or (“Charlie”) in the United Kingdom. My own little Gio is an English Toy Spaniel.

Cava;ier King Charles Spaniel HistoryThe English Toy/Charlie type was greatly preferred at this time and almost led to the extinction of the original, longer faced, flatter skulled Cavalier. In the 1920s Roswell Eldridge, a fancier here in the United States, fell in love with the look of the original type of Cavalier. He  offered prize money to exhibitors at Crufts dog show in England who may still have the “Blenheim Spaniels of the Old World type.” As is often the case, the idea of cold, hard cash generated excitement and many breeders began working to regain the original type of King Charles Spaniel. The result of these efforts created the base of the gene pool for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel of today. Now the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is much more popular than its once “Belle of the Ball”cousin, the English Toy.

How to apply nose butterHow to Apply NOSE BUTTER®

  • Tin - Dab a bit appropriate for their size nose across the top of the nose
  • Tube - Point away from eyes and swipe across nose
  • Apply 2-3x a day for 2-3 days
  • Then as needed for maintenance (1-3x weekly on average)

DISTRACTION WORKS

  • Give a cookie
  • Feed dinner (extra yummy)
  • Play a game
  • Go for a walk

If Nose is Extremely Crusty or Cracked

  • Apply 2-3x a day for 2-3 days
  • Test crusty area with tissue
  • If crust crumbles off drop back to maintenance application
  • If crust does not easily crumble off continue application 2-3x a day for 2-3 more days
  • Repeat test
  • Then as needed for maintenance (may be daily for senior or compromised dogs)

Odds & Ends

  • NOSE BUTTER in the tin and the tube is same product, just different containers
  • NOSE BUTTER will do no harm if your dog licks some and swallows it (or eats the whole tin)
  • The new nose leather underneath may be lighter in color when crust comes off

More Tips for Tough Cases

You may have one of those dogs who loathes being controlled, held tightly or messed with in any way. Some dogs are frightened by being held closely and controlled. Flat-faced dogs may stress a bit more because their breathing is already compromised, so they instinctively try to prevent having their noses covered. Yet another reason not to use Vaseline, baby butt stuff or any other super-thick product that does not “breathe” on their noses.

Suggestions: Gently tap NOSE BUTTER onto their nose while they are sleeping. If your dog wakes up, look away, be casual and act like you did not do anything.

Give a treat that is gooey with a stronger smell (goat cheese, bit of peanut butter, tuna) with one hand  and quickly dab NOSE BUTTER on with the other hand.

Don’t feel bad – It takes Steve and I BOTH to apply Nose Butter to 12 pound Gio. Embarrassing.

Toy Fox TerrierDry Dog Nose Info

“My dog’s nose is dry”. “My dog must be sick, her nose is warm.”

We have all heard that a warm or dry dog nose means a dog is sick and that all healthy dogs have moist, wet noses.

Actually, a dog’s noses can be a bit warm and be perfectly fine. Just as we have moments when we may feel a little hotter or flush and then fine in a few minutes, so can our dogs. So, a warm nose, with no other symptoms of illness is no cause for concern. Of course, lethargy, fever or other symptoms may necessitate a trip to the vet.

A dry, cracked crusty nose CAN be cause for attention. Of course, (blatant plug), we want you to start with using Nose Butter® and take care of it…but let’s look at the WHY of the crusties.

Nasodigital Hyperkeratosis is an idiopathic (unknown cause) condition that is marked by the excessive formulation of nose or footpad crusts that vets call keratin. It is common in older dogs and certain breeds seem to have a genetic predisposition to the condition. Thick, crusty, hard, dry crud accumulates on the top of the nose, paw pads, or both. The accumulated dry keratin is usually most visible on the top of the nose and at the edges of the paw pads. This is not life-threatening and is considered cosmetic, but we want to eradicate this condition! Nose Butter and Paw Butter are the key line of defense…not getting all infomercial on you. But that is why I created this line of products…it all started with Frenchie crusties that did not want to go away!

The paw pad variety of this is called Footpad Hyperkeratosis. Hyperkeratosis is thought to run in bloodlines and results in severe digital hyperkeratosis (overgrowth of crusts and crud). Once again, not life threatening, but needs to be addressed for their comfort and your peace of mind.

Sensitivities to plastic bowls can cause some nose issues. Switch to stainless shell or a well-made ceramic pronto. All those bad chemicals that we now know were in water bottles have often been used in pet food bowls!

There is another, serious condition, called Pemphigus foliates, which DOES need veterinarian intervention. It is characterized by blisters on the dry nose of a dog. They can burst and form crust that can covers the nostrils and makes breathing difficult. This is an autoimmune skin disease that is so very common amongst our modern dogs and cats. I repeat, your dog’s dry nose in this case would certainly need a vet’s attention.

Some dogs may be sensitive to the sun and need a bit of sunscreen. Shea Butter offers some natural SPF protection, the exact numbers are not available, as sources say anywhere from 9 to 30. I will have a sunscreen option soon (by spring 2014 for sure).

This is intended to give you a bit of info on the various conditions that can cause your best friend to have a dry, crusty dog nose. If you need more info, visit the Merck Vet manual site, email us or Google it!

Labradoodle Nose is Almost Completely Healed!
We have been using salicylic acid on Magnum the Labradoodle’s nose. Then the split in his nostril was so bad that the Vet dermatologist recommended “Liquid bandage” for humans be applied. Needless to say Magnum hated this. After one application he ran into his crate when he saw me coming with the bottle. I was desperate and then I heard about Nose Butter! Magnum’s nose is almost completely healed. And his nose is now “inviting” for a snuggle! I can’t thank you enough. – Carol

ShippingThe Blissful Dog Shipping Info

Your order will ship with 24-48 hours of my receiving it (not counting Sundays or holidays). Nothing short of a blizzard, zombie apocalypse or that good looking Alcide guy from True Blood showing up will slow down shipping. I don’t get out much, but if I am going to be away from The Blissful Dog International Headquarters (aka-home) for more than a long weekend I ship from my travels OR let you know in the order verification email.

There is a Priority Mail option, which includes a free freezer pack during summer months (US only). Recommended if you live on the surface of the sun aka Arizona, Texas or other sweltering locations.

Shipping Info USA 

Your shipping charges are based upon the actual weight of the item you have selected and the exact USPS charges. There are no added handling or service charges. For some reason handling charges bother me…

Your order will usually arrive from here in the far north to your mailbox within the US in 3-7 days. Of course, there are exceptions, but that is a good rule of thumb – er – paw.

International Shipping Info

The shipping charges are based upon the actual weight of the item you have selected and the exact USPS charges. There are no added handling or service charges.

International time frames vary from country to country. Sadly, I have had orders take 3-4 weeks to arrive to some countries. I wish I had that teleportation thing worked out and I could just zap your items to you, but until then the USPS will have to do.

I honor and feel your pain on how expensive international shippings is. Using the exact weight allows me to offer you the best rates possible. Tracking is not available after your package leaves the US. Tracking will stop in Chicago, IL, which the exit point for mail in my area leaving the USA. That does not mean it is stuck there, just that the tracking ends there.
