2 Jan ~ 2020 firmly with us and time to wish Happy 7th Birthday to Coco, Sophie, Patch and Teddy for today ~ all from Willow's second litter in 2013. Many thanks to all for the greetings over the festive season as well as the various photo's ~ which will of course end up on each gentleman's and lady's photo page at the first opportunity.
26 Dec ~ With the first bit of Christmas over, Midnight Mass duly celebrated and Christmas day with the younger grandchildren and mum for dinner, time to report on other events. Sounds like the title of a song, but, on the Friday before Christmas, off we battled through the traffic in, and out, of Southampton plus the M27 to see Kim down in dampest Barton on Sea with Crystal and Ziva. Result ~ three to four puppies appear to taken residence in Crystal and a good twenty minutes tie for Ziva with Alfie, plus an enjoyable couple of hours with Kim and her family.
Many thanks to all the Christmas messages from family and friends plus the latest batch of photo's to incorporate into the website.
19 Dec ~ Happy 12th Birthday wishes for tomorrow to Gizmo, Marbles and Sizzles from Sasha's second litter with Godfrey (Jezano On Silent Wings To Tayfern) in 2007.
9 Dec ~ Birthday wishes for tomorrow to Coby, Jasper, Louis and our own Willow from Sasha's last litter in 2008 who will all be 11. In addition Anna and Andy have sent us some photo's of Percy and Monty ~ two of which below ~ looking very Christmassy.
8 Dec ~ Birthday wishes to Bailey on the occasion of his 12th birthday and Requiescat In Pace to his brother Charlie who passed over Rainbow's Bridge in 2017.
2 Dec ~ Today we have to make a sad announcement as Becky and Mark have just informed us that they had to make the decision we alll hate and that, at the grand age of 14, Poppy has passed over Rainbow's Bridge. The only girl in Heidi's last litter, we share their loss.
28 Nov ~ Jazz very kindly sent us a couple of pictures of Hendricks and his two-legged brother and sister enjoying his 8th Birthday party (See below) together with some of him rock climbing at the beach earlier this year.
Whilst on happy notes I have finally finished the biennial website check ~ took longer than normal this year as I decided to update the Meta Data on each page, standardise layouts, check photo's on all the JPEG pages for the latest ones received, as well as update the pedigree pages with pictures of ancestors that I have managed to obtain from the WWW ~ so 340 web pages and 2700 JPEGs later all uploaded to the webhost.
27 Nov ~ Happy 8th Birthday to the two brothers, Hendricks and Stan from Lucy's last litter in 2011. Also thanks to Tony and family for sending us a picture of Stan to mark the occassion ~ and looking very dapper with his bow tie.
10 Nov ~ Hot off the e-mail George and Wem have sent us a picture of Cilla taken this morning, pluse Sarah sent us couple of pictures of Prince down amongst the autumnal leaves.
10 Nov ~ Happy second birthday wishes for tomorrow for Bugsy, Cilla, Matsy and Nico from Katie's first litter. Joyce has very kindly sent us a couple of photo's of the birthday boy and Cavalier friends, which you can see below.
On the home front, so-to-speak, amidst torrential rain, blocked M3, road closed outside the entrance to the village hall necessitating a detour to get to the other side we made the pilgrimage to the SCKCS Club Open Show at Normandy yesterday ~ the hassle factor was unbelievable just to get there but luckily it was not raining on arrival so Trish and the girls made it inside in the dry. However...... yours truly ended a bit damp getting everything from the car in the rain ~ and even worse there were no bacon butties left! Still, between them Ziva, Katie and Abbie managed to get a 1st, a 2nd, a 3rd and two Reserves. As ever the show dogs were magnificent to see in the ring so as 'itinerant' show people we were more than happy with the awards we got.

enjoying each others company.
26 Oct ~ Birthday wishes today for Rosie and Mouse from Crystal's first litter with Ace (Enigmai Sir Triphane Cadmus at Pacchibei) who are celebrating their fourth birthday today.
20 Oct ~ In Memorium today for a very special lady ~ Heidi (Oakash Lady In Red At Enigmai) our very first Cavalier who joined our madhouse in 2000 ~ and what a super millenium baby she turned out to be. Nothing ever put her out and she was always a loving lady no matter the age of two- or four-legged companions and visitors.
25 Sep ~ Birthday wishes yet again for tomorrow this time, but first things first we remember with fondness the first two puppies we bred in 2002 ~ Amber and her sister Cassie from Heidi's first litter and Diesel and Harvey from her last litter in 2005; together with our own Lucy and her litter-mates Molly and Monty from Amber's first litter in 2004.
So... Birthday wishes to their surviving litter-mates ~ 15th Birthday greetings to Keira, Duchy and Ralph with 14th Birthday greetings to Poppy and Maximus. It did not matter which year it would seem that the 26th September was a busy time in our house.
22 Sep ~ Another fun filled month almost over with summer almost gone and the rain beating on the window time for a birthday greeting to Chloe and In Memorium to her sister Buffy - both from Heidi's third litter in 2004. Still progressing with the bi-enniel review of all the web pages and photo's which is now taking a bit longer to accomplish as mum-in-law had a fall on her 94th birthday and ended up breaking her femur in two places and ended up having a plate screwed in to hold everything together - so lots of hospital visiting to see a beautiful young lady whilst she recovers. So please bear with me if it takes a bit longer than normal to update photo page with pictures received.
4 Sep ~ Well here we are in September already and even down here in Hampshire there is more than a nip in the air when the sun goes down ~ ably helped by wind and rain on the odd occasion we get some. Finally finished going through all the photo's and individual photo pages so they are now all up to date with a selection of the wonderful photo's sent to us both before and after the PC crash. Next job now is to go through the miscellaneous pages to make sure that they are up to date plus the pedigree pages to make sure that I have got all the ancestral photo's included ~ keeps you on your toes because you have to keep two copies of the same programme open for comparison and copy/paste. What fun......
28 Aug ~ Apart from the real world interfering with the best laid plans, so far I have uploaded to the website updated/reviewed photo pages for Bertie3, Bo, Cassie, Charlie3, Cilla, Coby, Coco, Crystal, Dash, Dylan, Ella, Hamlet, Harley, Jade, Katie, both Leavers pages, Pedigrees, Residents, Ruby2, both Stud Dog pages, 3 x Willow, 4 x Ziva and , with the sad loss of Ella just after birthday, Rainbow's Bridge. Just a few down more to go!
17 Aug ~ Just a brief one to firstly thank those of you who responded to help us rebuild our owners database with your current details, secondly the mail has been recovered and I have managed to trawl through it and download all the photo's that have been sent of your four-footed family members - so the next step is to now go through all the necessary web pages and update the photo content - that'll keep me busy for a few days!!
In addition to all that Wen and George paid us a visit with Cilla (Enigmai Lady Opaline Caligo) after two hours seven very tired girls after much chasing and playing inside and out. Great to see them, nothing nicer.
28 Jul ~ Well, doesn't a hard drive going terminal really mess up your day/week/month/year! Although all our documents and pictures are stored in the cloud using our local firm Online PC Support who fixed the machine itself and re-installed the operating system architecture and programmes together with downloading all our files to the machine itself over a working week it has still meant installing quite a few of our own programmes myself - hence no web or Facebook updates for a while. Unfortunately the major drawback has been that, with the latest iterations of Windows 10 and Outlook we have lost all of our Contacts and Calendar data. Soooo.......
If you are/have been an owner or owners of an Enigmai Cavaliers puppy since we started breeding in 2002 could you please, please help us out by sending us an e-mail with your current contact details to us HERE. It really will be an enormous help.
