Hi Cynthia and welcome to the site! I love springers, the 'big brothers and sisters' of cavaliers. Sure sounds like you have a full house! How is it managing an all-blind dog? Through rescue circles I know several people with bilnd cats and blind dogs and I have been surprised and humbled to learn how manageable this is for animals (especially for those born blind). Animals really are incredible -- their other sharp senses seem to be able to compensate for so much and I would now not be reluctant to take on a totally blind dog or cat myself.

I do cavalier rescue in Ireland and others of us are involved in many ways across the globe so you are in good company here in between those who help directly and indirectly and work in many ways -- rescue, health issues, responsible breeding, friendly advice etc -- to help this wonderful breed.

Quite a few of our Irish members help me out with fostering and transport and are part of my rescue team. :rah:

So we are happy to welcome you and your gang. :jump:

PS I'd be happy to add you to the rescue contact list in the breed rescue section if you'd like, and feel free to make use of the section for breed rescue purposes, news and so on.

Glad you've found this site!

Welcome to the group, what lovely dogs you have, and such a great person to rescue them - I love your avatar - how do you get it to change???

Little Rob Roy is so cute. :l*v:

You must have the patience of a saint, and, a huge heart to help your huge furry family. I'm assuming you must have a huge house to fit them all in. You must be a very organised person to keep on top of when all the different pooches need vaccinations/worming etc. How do you do it??!!
I don't envy your poop scoop duties, :lol: :yuk:
but I'm sure the welcome that you get from them all makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks Nicki for putting my info on here for me, and all are welcome. as its not just for Springers its for Cavaliers also, and anything else that comes my way needing to be rescued,
But as yet never a Ruby Cavalier, which I would love, so all you Rubys owners out there, beware I am on the hunt :lol:
I am making my way around this lovely site, and enjoying seeing all the lovely dogs out there,
speak to you all soon
