View Full Version : Quickie note from California!

16th September 2006, 09:52 PM
Hi all --

Am out visiting my parents after flying in yesterday on the long journey from Ireland. I was SO EXCITED to meet their cavalier Lucy; she is just adorable! I took her for a long walk this morning after I got up at 7am (I went to bed at 9:30 so got a good nights' jet lagged sleep). She wasn't too sure about who this strange person was marching her down the hill but then trotted along and had some good sniffs and a look at the ducks down in the nearby park. So much fun to arrive and have a cavalier here! :lotsaluv:

I will post pics but not til next week -- we are off to the mountains for a week and I will have no net access at all.

I can see in the day and a half I have been offline that there have been something like 20 new topics started in the general section :shock: so we sure are turning into a abusy board. I don.t notice things like that when I am online much of every day.

Also disappointed to see how many spam registrations I got in 36 hours -- about half a dozen. :x I am waiting to install a new bit of code that should stop them but need to wait til it is all approved code from the guys that produce the board software. Right now it is still being tested according to the guy who created it.

Anyone trying to register this week will need to be patient -- I won't be able to activate accounts til I return.


Ps I got my box of dog things from www.helpingudders.com and can confirm that the cavalier breed collars are VERY CUTE. Also Lucy has test driven one of the rubber donut toys from the helping udders toys made from used cow-milking machine rubber parts! She was chasing it all over the floor and they are cavalier sized as well. Check out their site as the toys and other items are really great and you can designate some of your purchase to go to Lucky Star cavalier rescue too. :)

Sounds like you're going to have a great visit Karlin. The weather has finally turned here in San Diego and it's been an absolutely beautiful day. I checked out the website. Some very cool stuff. I write an article every other month for my club newsletter and my topic is toys. Looks like I'll need to order a couple and try them out for "research". Gotta be a great site...they carry the leo and the flexi leash bag. I don't attach it to a flexi leash but have it hooked onto my double lead. Carries bags, treats, house key, my business card (in case I run into anyone interested in Cavaliers and wanting to know more) and a couple of bucks in case we run into the ice cream man (we all shared a popsicle last week!).

Have a great time!!!

Thanks; I will be having a great time though today I have mostly spent fussing with Lucy and writing my two stories for next week's paper; the latter about the last things I want to be doing but no rest for the wicked, as Grandma likes to say.

Along with the udder toys (I got one of the small pull toys too) the ones I got that look great are the Wubba in a small size -- just right for a cavalier, and WITH a squeaky, and a small TreatStik (which is shaped not to roll under things as easily as treat balls or cubes).

Don't forget to take a break sometime to relax a little and rest up, :flwr:

Enjoy your mum and dad and little Lucy!

A home is where you'll find a Cavalier! :lol:
