View Full Version : Lurker delurks...new member

I've been reading this list for quite a while and thought it time to formally join. I have two blenheim cavaliers, Gizmo (age 9 1/2) and Gadget (age 8 1/2). Gizmo and Gadget are full brothers. We lost our oldest boy, Toby, just four weeks ago. He was almost 16. That's actually how I got hooked on the site. I was reading some of the health information and found some that were very, very useful to us as Toby aged.

Gizmo has significant MVD but Gadget appears clear.

Anyway, you've all been helpful, even if you didn't know it.

Look forward to continuing to read the board, and now I'll contribute!

I also added a "In Memoriam" post about Toby just a few minutes ago, in case you are interested in reading more about him.
