View Full Version : new ruby cavalier

27th August 2007, 09:54 PM
Hi I just joined the forum today so am a complete newbie ! I'm due to get a cavalier puppy in 4 weeks time and as I've never had one before I'd really appreciate any advice . The last dog I had was a scottie and I was lucky enough to have her for in my life for 14 years . She died last january and I 've been dogless ever since . I cant wait for the day to arrive when I collect new puppy ; we visited her a few days ago and met her mother and whole family ! she is a ruby cavalier and sooo sweet .......it's fantastic to have found this forum where so much information is available.

Hi and welcome. You are in for such a wonderful experience. I too am a first-time cavalier owner, and I can't tell you how much I love this little dog. I can't believe it has taken me this long to find this perfect breed....Can't wait to hear all about her and see lots of pictures.Judy

icon_welcome Hilary! I, too, am a first time owner. My kids are all grown and my grandkids are growing too fast as well! Hence the reason I decided on 2 puppies! I can't believe how much I love these two little cavs.
You are going to be so happy with her. :jmp:
(I'm sorry about your little scottie. :( )

Welcome Hilary! How wonderful that you are getting a new puppy!!!!! Make sure to take LOTS of photos because they grow so fast. (I wish I had taken more photos when my two were tiny) We'll all be looking forward to hearing all about the little one when you bring her home and of course we'd love to see some photos! Have you decided on a name yet???

Welcome to the world of puppy wee, chewing your best shoes and digging up your favourite plants in the garden ;)

I have a 11 mth old ruby male who I bought after my elderly cavalier died. The first few months are really hard work as it's like looking after a toddler, which was a bit of a shock to the system as I was used to a slow moving dog who spent all day sleeping!!!

It is exciting. Have you thought of any good names yet? Mine's a Bertie!
