Mankindís true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. 
- Milan Kundera, "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" (1984).

Named for King Charles II, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was once a great favourite at the English court. 

He is known for the soulful expression in his large dark eyes and appears in numerous paintings from the time. 

The Cavalier is a toy Spaniel and is a descendent of the King Charles Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel. He was bred to be a companion. Today, the Cavalier retains his enormous popularity as a family pet in Great Britain. 

The Cavalier stands up to 13 inches at the shoulder and has a long, silky coat. His coat may be Blenheim (white with chestnut markings), solid red, black and tan, or tri-colour. Weekly grooming and minimal exercise make the Cavalier a fairly low maintenance dog.

A loving, devoted, and friendly dog, the Cavalier is good natured and loves children. Generally a great companion for all ages, young children must exercise some care when the Cavalier is still a puppy due to his small size. Cheerful, lively, and sociable, he gets along well with other people and other dogs. 

The Cavalier is intelligent and obedient with an eager to please nature. Training comes easily to him. Harsh methods should never be used or he may become fearful. The Cavalier does well as an indoor dog, and should live in a home with a fenced backyard. He should take his daily walks on the leash.
