A 12 hours shift, ouch! Do you have to work that hard? What do you do?

My son Ash always said he didn't agree to me getting a dog. He said it was too much work etc. Well now, the first thing he does when he gets home is call Dylan and make a big fuss over him. It's the best welcome anyone can have :lotsaluv:

AMEN to that, its the best!! Sabrina sleeps with us and when she wakes up she lays on my chest and puts her nose about and inch from mine, like saying hello are you in there. I always wake up to the feeling someone is watching me!! I open my eyes and alls I see is ears, eyes and nose. Night time is great too, come home and get massive kisses!!!

When I used to come home from work I would always be the first in the house. It was always silent and unwelcoming and I would say to my hubby and son that they were lucky when they came home to warm house, smell of dinner and noise. Now I am the lucky one as I now get welcomed by two mad dogs with tails wagging, no other feeling like it.

I'm a bus driver Pauline, most of our shifts are about that length, but we're in the middle of negotiations to try and get them cut back a little :xfngr:

It really is the best welcome :D

12 hours :eek: .

I can walk out to the mailbox and come back into the house and Scout is like, 'where have you been?'. I was gone for 30 seconds, but it does feel nice that she is so happy to see me.

Yep, it's so awesome - I had a totally crappy day yesterday, and then I walked in the door, and Willow greeted me with a full body wag - it made me feel instantly better!

Willow greeted me with a full body wag...

I just have to wiggle too when Dylan does this, it's too cute.

YES!!!! This is one of the best things about having a Cavalier! I love the way Ziggy greets me when I walk in the door. He dances around on his hind feet and gives me high fives with both paws. You just have to be there to see it. I wish I had some one to video his dance. Its a scream!

I have to agree 100%....I'm not sure there is much better than when the pups are sooooooo happy to see you....

I have 2 'real' children ages 18 & 19 and of course we love them, but dh & I agree that had Max & Molly come along first......we might not have had kids! (our teenagers are exhausting & frustrating much of the time)

That's the thing with these dogs, I remember many years ago when my Sisters ancient old Cavalier (he was 12 at the time) was given 72 hours to live, I simply could not imagine coming home to there being no dog there to welcome me in true Cavalier fashion!!
My then fiance' now OH, who I met walking the dog incidently! Anyway we talked to my parents and they said get another puppy but it goes with you when you get married next year, that puppy extended my Sisters lads life by a further 2 years! He was also responsible for me getting into showing this wonderful breed and eventually breeding them, so he is to blame for my current house full, and I wouldn't have it any other way!!

You just cannot beat a Cavalier Welcome Home can you?

We have a porch (now the dog grooming room) between the living room and the garage; there is a french door between the porch and the living room. It is just so heartwarming to come into the porch and see all those dog faces lined up in the living room at the french door waiting for me. When I open the door, I am absolutely mobbed by dogs and I love it! Everyone gets a petting.

Kris once complained that I greet the dogs before her when I come home. I told her that when she meets me at the door, jumps all over me and licks me all over, I'll greet her first :lol: :lol:

Oh my gosh, Molly's whole little butt wiggles, and I just love it! :wggle:

We have our little routine. I open the door to the xpen and she runs out, always with a toy in her mouth, and then she usually goes back in to get another one. I'm not exactly sure why she has to have the toy, but the butt is wiggling the whole time. Brings the biggest smile to my face. :D

The butt wiggle is awesome! In my attempt to teach Aoife manners, she must sit still & then I will greet her. It's so cute seeing her stamp her feet in impatience & wiggle her bum on the floor as I fill her water bowl or open a window. :D

Couldn't agree more, no matter what kind of day you've had it's awsome to see the smiley faces ang waggy tails coming towards you.....the girls usually turn their attention to attacking Jakes tail after saying hello......which usually sets him off on a tail chasing frenzy :lol: .....but at his age after a couple o swirls round he just gives up....lies down, rolls over and waits expectantly for a belly rub....all the while the 2 girls are just jumping all over him :rotfl:
