Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

This breed was named after King Charles II (can also be transliterated as Charles II), who lived in the 17th century. He was not directly involved in dog breeding, but during his reign all the doors were open for small spaniels.

Most of the dead hair remained on the dog’s body, clinging to the undercoat and adjacent hairs. Because of this, the skin could not breathe, bacteria multiplied on it, and the hair tangled and lost its appearance. Trimming solved the problem. Why is it he, and not combing or haircut?
