On Sunday, March 5, the NY/NJ Cavalier King Charles Spaniel meetup and the Facebook Tri-State King Charles Spaniel Group hosted their first annual “Kings Tea.”
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are eager, affectionate happy dogs, and it was amazing to be among such a huge crowd of them, Also known as English Toy Spaniels, there are four colors: King Charles ( black and tan) Prince Charles ( white with black and tan patches) Blenheim ( white with red patches) and Ruby (red). These lovable dogs have been linked with English royalty all the back to the early 1500s.
Intelligent and with a stable temperament, the King Charles are typically lapdogs and fit well into family life. Their easygoing temper was in evidence at the tea- all of the dogs socialized well with each other and a good time was had by all.
Tea and finger foods were served, and the (human) guests enjoyed a Chinese auction. A live auction was also held with a number of exciting donated items.
The Cavalier Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on senior and special needs Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
