View Full Version : Me and my Ruby!

15th November 2006, 02:29 PM
Hi everyone, my name is Laurent, im 21 and my dog's name is Jules, a 8 months old ruby cavalier! I found this board while i was looking for infos on cavaliers. It is so nice to see all the pictures and stories of your dogs! Here in Montreal (Canada), Cavalier are a very very rare breed. There is only one breeder in all the state. We (my girlfriend and I) had to wait more than a year to get our dog! And we are now waiting for our second, a second male (tricolor) which was born on October 8th! I hope i can somehow be useful to someone here with my short life experience with a cavalier!

Have a nice day!


Here is Jules when he was young!

Laurent! I just wanted to icon_welcome you and Jules. :mexwav:

What a beautiful Ruby. My Lucky is a ruby too and I think they are sooo sweet and gorgeous. I posted some pics of him in the puppy pictures section if you want to take a look.

Welcome & I'm glad you found the site! I'm sure you'll enjoy your time here and love the pictures of Jules.

Congratulations on your new baby too...looking forward to seeing photos...

Welcome to the board, and what a scrumptious little doll Jules is.

Jules is just a tad older than Darby he will be 8 months on Nov 29th
When is little Jules's b-day. Congratulations on the arrival of your 2nd
I live in Toronto.
These Rubies are becoming more and more popular over the past few months.

Hmmmmmmmmm Nicki who's Tedbear ???????????
He actually lives with Nicki but his Auntie Linda loves him to bits. I can only dream that my darling little Darby will grow up to be as handsome as Tedbear he is just gorgeous and he has a stunning coat too. But he also has a very very special mommy.

I am also the proud owner of a darling little Ruby Darby,

Him as a puppy

O.K.--ya'll are making me swoon for a ruby--stop it, stop it, stop it!!

TedBear is just a stunner--one of the most beautiful Cavs I've ever seen. And Darby and Jules are scrumptious, too! :l*v:


Good thing I'm going to a Cavi Club meeting in the area this weekend. Hopefully, I'll get a ruby/tri/bt fix there... ;)

Hi there Laurent!
Welcome to the board! Your puppies are beautiful! I am new to cavaliers too. My cav, Coco is 5 months now. I am in Toronto too, so you have some fellow Canadians on here. :flwr: I find that Cavaliers are rather rare here too- Coco has never met a cavalier. And I have actually never seen a ruby or a black and tan cavalier in person either!! :shock:

Well, I am rambling... Congrats on your new arrival! Hope to see more pics!

Welcome fellow ruby-lover! I've always had a thing for black and tans...and rubies were actually 4th in my list of favorite colors (that's a nice way of saying "last"). But since Abby, my ruby rescue, came to live with us, I've completely fallen for rubies. Of course, I'm sure I'd fall for any cav color.

15th November 2006, 08:32 PM
WoW all your cavs are so pretty! Thank you to all of you for all the nice words. It looks like i'm the only boy here!! When my girlfriend told me she wanted a cav, i found these were looking like "girl dogs". But guess what... i'm the one who acts like a baby with Jules everyday!!!!

For those who wanted to see pictures of my second puppy, here they are!

icon_welcome to you and jules he is very cute ,i love all the pictures of the rubies they are all beautiful :)

I'm another wholecolour fan, although I'm thinking that once my ruby baby has grown up a bit, I'll be watching out for a little blenheim rescue girl. Or maybe a boy for a change, but I love the girls ! :lol:

My two:


My pup is only 15 weeks old, whilst my B/T girl is over three, but you wouldn't think it from this pic. Amber (the ruby) is not quite as big as she looks here, and Holly is not as small!

Your ruby is gorgeous!

That story rings true for so many guys. My husband, who never grew up with dogs as I did, is absolutely in love with our Lily who is 11 weeks now. We have had her for 3 weeks, and he said she was not going to sleep with us. Guess where she is sleeping....you guessed it, snuggled up to my hubby every night. That's him holding her in my Avatar and he even puts her little pink coat on every time her takes her out when it is cold. It is a true love affair!!!!

16th November 2006, 03:19 AM
I said hello already but seeing pictures of everyones gorgeous rubies makes me want to post some of my own. :D

Here's Lucky on his first full day home (10 weeks):


and this evening: (just around 5 months)


I am loving seeing all these gorgeous rubies together in one post. Looking forward to seeing more of Jules. :)

17th November 2006, 02:15 PM
Shay: tell your husband i'm exactly like him!! I told my girlfriend when we had Jules that he would NEVER sleep in the bed, but the fisrt day he understood that peepee and poopoo was outside, he slept between us in our comfortable bed, and never missed one night since!

Lucky looks like Jules!! He's so cute!!

Lisa your dogs are wonderful! I love B/T! Jules's sister his B/T too! These two colors together are really pretty!

17th November 2006, 03:24 PM
Welcome Laurent,
This is my ruby girl Daisy Boo - she's 16 months old

I also have a tri called Twinkle who will be 1 next week.

Jules is adorable.

18th November 2006, 11:18 AM
Welcome Laurent to you and Jules and your new little baby. They are both so cute. Have you decided on a name for your new little boy yet? I have 2 blenheim girls, Lottie and Sophie. They are just beautiful.
Julie and the girls

hi Laurent--congratulations on your new dog collection. :D

my tricolor boy was born on October 7, a year before, 2005. For some reason there are a lot of October birthday dogs among us here.

we have several other guys on the forums who post sometimes that i can think of, Bruce, Aaron, and Rod are fairly regular posters. but the guys are definitely in the minority--for some reason this is more of a girl thing. I'm on another forum called guitarists.net and the ratio is about exactly the opposite, there's only two or three females who post regularly along with a huge number of guys.

viva la differAnce :flwr:

Hi and welcome to you and Jules. Jules and his sister are just gorgeous! So are the pixs of your soon to be tri. My heart is going pitter/patter from all these gorgeous ruby pictures. Here's my Katie (who turned 2 yesterday)!!! She's already in love with TedBear but thinks Jules is quite the stud too. :l*v:

I know what you mean. Because Cavaliers are so beautiful I suppose they are kinda girly looking. Everyone refers to my little guy Tucker as "she" instead of "he" But he's got the personality of a little boy all the way. He loves to run at top speed, his ears are whipping back, he loves to fetch his mini tennis balls, he's practically gymnastic the moves he makes in order to catch the balls when we play in the house. If I were younger, and in better shape, I think Tucker would do great in agility type activities, he's so fast and catches balls like crazy, he even uses his paws to help him catch, I'm not kidding! So they may look like sweet little confections of dogs, but they are full of spunk, they're just the coolest dogs, ever ! Laurent I live north of Boston, and never see any cavaliers around here either, but I know they're out there. I'm probably a 4 hour drive from you. I've been to Montreal it's a lovely city.
