~ Lydia's Puppies ~
Welcome to Lydia's Puppies page! This is where we will post the bi-weekly updates for any current litter from Lydia, and you can also click the link to
zip down to the bottom to see photos of all of Lydia's past litters!
We are planning to breed Lydia to Cabello in 2021 for a "near-Cavalier-like" litter where the puppies will be 75% Cavalier and 25% Poodle. But, because of Cabello's age, we don't know whether he will be still producing mid-2021 and if that's the case, we will breed to Arlo instead of Cabello. We may not know which litter type will be happening until last minute in 2021, and so we are listing both options here so that people are prepared for either type of Cavapoo! Please see details below explaining both types!
ANTICIPATED BIRTH: MAY-JUNE, 2021
If Lydia is bred to Cabello they will produce *F1B Reverse CAVAPOOS* (approximately 75% Cavalier -- 25% Poodle) Please see our CAVAPOOS 101 page for details and refer to the F1B Reverse Cavapoo. There will be some puppies with wavy fur like the F1 Cavapoo and others with straight fur like the Cavalier in this pairing. The puppies with wavy fur will be low shedding and suitable for mild allergies and the puppies with straight fur will not be allergy-friendly, although they may still be low shedding.
If Lydia is bred to Arlo they will produce *F3 CAVAPOOS* (approximately 43.75% Cavalier -- 56.25% Poodle) Please see our CAVAPOOS 101 page for details and refer to the F3 Cavapoo. All of the puppies in this pairing will have curly fur that will range from wavy like the F1 to curly like the Poodle, and they will all be allergy-friendly and suitable for moderate to severe allergies.
This will be Lydia and Cabello's (or Arlo's) first litter together! We anticipate that
their puppies will mature to be in the estimated range of 16 to 20 lbs.
And the following colours are possible:
(MORE COLOURS MAY BE POSSIBLE, AND THE COLOURS LISTED CAN BE SOLID, ABSTRACT, OR PARTI)
Black ~ Ruby (LIGHT OR MEDIUM) ~ Sable ~ Tri-Colour ~ Phantom ~ Chocolate (MAYBE)
Please visit our Cavapoo Colours page for more colour details.

Bunker from Annalyse X Amedeo 2016!
Note from Pleasant Meadows: We are planning to keep EITHER a BOY or a GIRL and maybe BOTH from this planned pairing with Cabello and Lydia! Our Cavalier line is among the healthiest in Canada with our dogs from our line living well into their teens! We are needing to keep back dogs from our lines as the breeder from which our healthy line originates has retired from breeding in 2018 after 34 years of breeding, and we have been unable to source out another healthy line that compares to our Cavaliers! And so, in order to keep going breeding the Cavapoo, we will be keeping near-Cavalier-like puppies back from our healthy and trusted lines where it's possible for us to do so! We will mostly be considering the puppies born with straight fur (may not be able to see fur type until 5+ weeks of age), but we will be considering any puppy of the tri-colouring regardless of fur type if they are structurally appropriate for a future breeding prospect.
Please see the below photo of our most recent litter of F1B Reverse Cavapoos from Daphne and Cabello's litter together in September 2019 as a reference to fur type. We kept the female with straight fur in the middle -- she is our future star, Desta:
The benefits of an F1b Reverse Cavapoo are that your puppy will be very Cavalier-like in either fur or temperament for all the Cavalier lovers out there, but your puppy will also have the health benefits of being a hybrid mix! And so if you love the Cavalier -- you will love a puppy from Cabello and Lydia!
