Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club
 Of Northeastern New York

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Of NENY was conceived during a long drive home from a dog show in 2003.  We felt a need to have something in our region that would bring Cavalier owners together for the common love of our breed.  The goal of The Club is to provide a friendly and fun loving environment for pet owners and breeders alike.  Our Club has members from all walks of life.  As well as having many health conscious breeders we also have a great obedience/agility contigency, an active therapy dog group and many wonderful pet owners. All of whom add something special to make our club what it is.

The goal of our club is to educate the public and breeders alike, and to promote responsible dog ownership. We do this by participating in many dog related activities in our area.  We participate in our areas local AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day. We have had breed seminars and have sponsered health and microchip clinics . We hold matches in both breed, obedience and rally. 

Our club meetings are held 6 times a year in the Capital District area. You can see the meeting dates and times on our Calander. Whether you currently own a Cavalier or are in the searching process feel free to contact any of our board members for more information regarding joining the CKCSCNENY.

We hope that you enjoy your tour through our site.

Carol A. Rose Obituary

Glenville- Carol A. Rose, 72 of Jennifer Rd passed away peacefully after a short but courageous battle with Glioblastoma on December 1st, 2023.

Born in Schenectady, NY, she was the daughter of the late Edward and Drusilla Arnold Prendergast. She graduated from Mohonasen High School, Class of 1969 and from Hudson Valley Community College with an associate degree.

She married Wesley Rose in December of 1973. She spent the last 40 years working as a dental hygienist for Dr. David Kaplan in Scotia.

Carol lived her life with an open heart and an open door…literally, she never locked her front door, and all were always welcome. She loved her family as well as her friends who were like her family, and her dogs. Carol became involved in AKC conformation dog shows in the 70’s breeding and showing Lhasa Apsos and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels under the Karlee prefix. She was the President of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels Club of Northeastern New York and Southern Adirondack Dog Club, the treasurer of the Mohawk Valley Kennel Club and a member of the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club. She was generous to a fault, with her dogs, her advice, and her work with dog clubs. Carol was an advocate for the health and education of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. She loved to “talk dogs” and made many families happy with beautiful, healthy cavalier puppies. She loved traveling to dog shows throughout the country to spend time with friends from near and far, hiking in the Adirondacks and reading. Her influence on the dog world, especially the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel world is immeasurable as she touched the lives of many.

In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, Wesley Rose.
Carol is survived by her daughters, Katie (Andy) Szczesny, and Kimberly Rose, both of Burnt Hills; her sister, Patty (Steve) Slebonick of Virginia; grandchildren, Harper, and Wesley as well as many brothers and sisters in-law, nieces and nephews and friends who were like family.

Her daughters would like to thank her friends and family for their amazing support of Carol during these last four months. Taking the time to visit with her and allowing her to spend time with those she loved was what made her happy.

Calling hours will be from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, December 9th at the Glenville Funeral Home, 9 Glenridge Road with a blessing to immediately follow. Family and friends are cordially invited to a celebration of life following the calling hours from 2pm to 5pm at St. George's Episcopal Church, 30 N Ferry St, Schenectady, NY 12305.
