Hi Heather, Kids and the Wizard

Nice to hear from you. Hope you enjoyed your holiday. Sorry I could not take Harry this time but I have been out and about most of this month.

I might have a solution for another cavalier for you. I am thinking of rehoming Chloe, Harry's mother. She is 3 1/2 years old. I had another litter from her 15 weeks ago and found out why she had difficulties in passing the pups. She can't have any more litters, which does not bother me, so I am thinking of getting her spayed. She is in perfectly good health. Don't know if you are interested, but if I can get her a good home I will be pleased. If you are I don't want any money for her. She does not like showing and is more interested in being loved at home...Just a thought for you to think about.

:yikes icon_whistling ;)

what do i do??

Oh my oh my...............What will it be? Will you have to change your siggy? A playmate for Harry or not?

Its not that hard a decison really! ;)

That age gap would be good, if you are seriously considering a second dog. Having two dogs really close in age means you eventually have two elderly dogs with all the same afflictions at the same time and those in such a situation generally advise people to avoid it if possible -- it makes life a bit more difficult at home looking after two oldies. And it would be nice to have two related dogs that know each other. :)

will them being related not cause problems?? thats the only thing i'm worried about!

If June has Chloe spayed i'll still get Harry done so he doesn't have the urge to pester her.
And unlike Ebony, Chloe lives in a house full of cavaliers (9 in total!) so i know that won't be a shock for her lol

No, related dogs don't have any more problems getting along than unrelated dogs. If they remember each other that's nice though. The only problem is if very close relations breed with each other -- not generally good genetically.

Wow, I would go for it. The idea of having more than one dog appeals to me - my cavs like being together.

How often does an opportunity like this - a free cavalier with a known background - ever come up!

been offline for a bit but thought i'd update you all...

We had chloe for the weekend and we had decided that we arn't the right home for her.
We collected her on the friday, and she had been sitting on my knee quite happily, when she jumped up and bit me for no reason! (she caught my lip and it was bleeding quite a bit, harry jumped up and started licking my face making sure i was ok... bless him)
She also kept going for the kids if they walked into the room, as she was so scared of them.
we still kept her until the sunday night in the hope that she'd settle, but she didn't

So for now, harry is still a singleton dog.

oh dear. poor little girl. Too bad it didn't work out, but at least you gave it a good try. i hope someone can work with her or something so that she can have a home. She must've been through a lot in her life to become so fearful and aggressive.

hi judy,

i thought it was odd for her to be so agressive. but her owners (harry's breeder) is keeping her

28th October 2006, 12:18 PM
Perhaps she was just frightened by the whole thing having come away from the people she had known for a long time and reacted badly......

I'm sure Harry will get a play mate one day.... just not the right time now. :flwr:

28th October 2006, 12:24 PM
Sounds like she was really scared, Heather. Maybe she's not used to kids & noise? If she's always lived a quiet life and then to suddenly be put in an environment where there are two littlies it must have been pretty scary for her :(

Hope your lip is OK?
