View Full Version : A Lifetime of Cavs

got my dad to dig out pics of the cavs we had growing up


Digby on the left and Benji on the right of the screen. You can just about make out how well built Digby was. This was because he was paralysed from about half way down his back after a GS attacked him


unfortunately he never made it through one of the operations on his back so next up was.....Digby! (we were young)


Digby the second got out one day and got hit by a car. We decided to retire the name after that.

next up two refined old gents - Benji and Biggles


and finally - honest - my favourite. My wee bro and Benji. This pic must be at least 25 years old. I can't believe how well they've scanned.

What lovely, special memories you must have of your childhood with these precious dogs by your side.

I always wanted a dog when a child but my parents kept on saying "no" :( .... I waited until I was married with my own family in my 30's and now couldn't be without one, two, three......!

They make my happiness complete. :lotsaluv:

Awww what precious pics. Thanks for sharing - does your brother know you've posted his childhood pic on here???? :yikes

I'm like Alison, my Mum had poodles though and they were her dogs. I was desperate for my own dog & now I have two - hubby let's me indulge myself with them as he knows how much i love them :lol:

Saying that, he indulges them just as much and even though he says no to another, if someone dumped one on the doorstep I know he'd have it in a shot!!!!

thanks - we've always had dogs. My dad believes it's important for kids to grow up understanding how to look after them.

When I was a baby we had a beagle. We got Benji when I was about 6 and it was cavs all the way since. Bit of a gap when I moved to Dublin but I eventually wore Joanna down and it's 4 cavs between myself and my brother now (and no - he doesn't know I've posted that!) icon_whistling and 6 dogs in total if you include my sisters two. It's bedlam when we all visit!

:lol: I would love it if all of my siblings had cavaliers! Perhaps we'd see more of each other! :lol:
It's nice that your father felt that way about dogs and kids. :)
