I agree that a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sounds like a perfect fit for your mum. Check out the national club for info on them http://www.ckcsc.org/ and do a google search for more info. If your mum likes Irish Setters (they need heaps of exercise by the way) she might like the 'ruby' coloured Cavs. They're basically the same colour (some a little lighter) as the IS with the same kind of feathering on their coat. But need much less exercise and less grooming.
Here's a page with pictures of an adorable Ruby Cav. http://www.honeybet.co.uk/alfie.htm

If you want a breed that is not prone to separation anxiety then DO NOT get a cavalier.

I have a cavalier myself, they were bred to with people 24/7 and can not be left alone for long frequent periods of time without a companion, they also don't handle stress very well. Here's a quote direct from the CKCSC "Cavalier puppies do not thrive when left all day without human companionship or the company of another animal."

Cavaliers are also prone to a massive ammount of genetic problems that are detrimental to to breed and devasating to thier owners. It can and normally takes 2-3 years to find/get a puppy from a reputible breeder who does everything necissary to enusre that they are breeding the healthiest pups posible. If you are not willing to spend up to 3 years looking for a pup then it would be best to look for a different breed or consider a rescue.

Well as you can tell I love the Maltese.. I also love the ShihTzu and Rotti's.
It's so hard to choice they are all special and adorable!!

Thanks for all the suggestions and if we get a dog it will be from a rescue . The reason we don't want separation anxiety is because I will be out of the house while I am at school (my mom too since she is a teacher). I don't think we will be getting a dog for a while though I really want to foster but they keep saying no. Thanks for your help!

we had a maltese/shih tzu.
i never really liked "little fluffies" but she was one of the most special dogs i've ever met.
tough, adaptable, bossy but oh so sweet

I am not really into the little fluffy dogs either but my mom likes them I'll just have to weight ten years before I can get my dog for now mom will get what she wants (even though dad doesn't like small dogs either, I wonder how will feel about this). Maybe If we get one I'll start liking small dogs who knows, I've never met ones that were well trained. Plus I like sporty dogs like Retrievers, setters and hounds. My parents (dad) don't like hounds because he thinks they all bark their heads off for no reason. We all have very different tastes though so it's hard, we'll probably end up getting who ever the rescue thinks fits us best(if we get a dog) but I still like to see what breeds would fit us anyway.

Nemo is really well trained and he's so laid back.. I know what you mean though.My first dog (And the love of my life ) was a Doberman named Ceasar. I always wanted a Rottie but at the time my kids were too young and I wanted to wait till they got bigger. I have enough experience with large dogs to know you must be the alpha right away.. Then as my kids got older I really didn't think about it much. Then my son saw Nemo fell in love and he came into our lives.. I know alot of the little dogs are yappy , but the Maltese breed is really opposite, they are just like humans and have such a great personality..
