My precious Rupert is 10 today...


{those that know us will realise quite what a milestone this is for us, we thought we were going to lose him just over 2 years ago to Syringomyelia - :( so every day has been a huge bonus. Forgive me for over indulging on the photos today!!}

From cute pup


to handsome young man


to dignified oldie {taken last Sunday} with Jack and TedBear


Still playing the clown at TedBear's Gotcha day party April 2006


Even he has bad hair days :D


On holiday on the West Coast of Scotland February 2006


Cuddled up with his Momma on a visit when he was 2 {Bryony got in with him, a very precious memory}


Official birthday portrait and party photos to follow!!

Happy Birthday Rupert

Hope you've had a lovely day, being spoiled rotten by Mummy and Daddy :D

Nicki, I was only looking at Rupert in his pine cone pic this morning and thinking what a gorgeous boy he is and I didn't even realise it was his special day :?

Hope he has many, many more lovely days too :lotsaluv: xxxxx

Happy 10th Birthday Rupert. You look very hansome

Thank you so much everyone.

I have been trying to get a nice birthday portrait...unfortunately my "assistant/ senior photographer" otherwise known as hubby LOL isn't feeling too good so wasn't able to help.

This was the best I could do on my own...


Will try to get a better one soon...

Gillian, I'm afraid Rupert isn't terribly interested in toys now...it's all a bit beneath him LOL. So instead we bought a fleecy bone toy and donated it to NESSR a rescue who take all Spaniels, and usually have about 4 Cavaliers in a month :( We thought they would enjoy it!

Happy 10th Birthday Rupert :jmp:

Nicki, like I have told you so so many times Rupert has such a gorgeous
gentle and loving face. He is just so sweet, been through so much and
he is so well mannered and gentle. :lotsaluv:

The love you have shown and dedicated to him definetely shines through him Nicki, you are a wonderful and superb mommy and Rupert is a
very very lucky boy to have somebody such as you to call his
mommy. :mexwav: :l*v:

Sorry I am late Rupert, tons of love we send to you sweetie.

Hey Nicki, any secrets that you have up your sleeve for no tear staining.
None of your crew have tear staining.

Happy Happy Birthday.

Thank you so much everyone for all the good wishes and kind comments - planning to have his party this weekend, so hope to get some good photos then.

Only popped on to see Humberside Results last night, then was so happy I forgot to read all the threads, so I missed this!

So thrilled for you Michelle - for those who didn't see, BIS + Bitch CC at the Humberside Championship show was Brymarden Moon River, whose Mother was Riverdancer, one of Michelle's girls. :jump:
