Hi, I just joined and wanted to introduce myself and my beautiful girl, Amber. Amber is a very special girl, 2 years ago I met a wonderful women that needed some kennel help, I moved in with my Italian Greyhounds, and soon my life was changed forever - She raises Cavaliers, Italian Greyhounds, and Whippets, she got my involved in the show world, and gave me a chance to start over in life. I admired her cavaliers, but it was Amber who stole my heart. About a year ago, she moved 1500 miles way and I remained here, and she took Amber with her. Last month I had one of my dogs stollen right in front of me, and just broke my heart, about the same time my friend had decided she needed to downsize her kennel, and at 4 years old and 3 litters behind her, she decided to let Amber go, and knew that I needed Amber as much as she needed a new home. She's only been here 2 days now, but it's as though she's always been here, she came home and fit in from day one, I have 3 Italian Greyhounds of my own, plus I do IG rescue, so with my rescue dogs, I have 10 IGs in my home right now, plus 2 cats, and Amber gets along so well with all of them - I expect bringing a new dog home to disrupt things somewhat, but Amber just walked in, and that was that - None of my dogs cared, and Amber doesn't bother anyone! I also expect accidents the first few days while the dog settles in - But Amber hasn't had a single accident, she's just been a perfect fit!! I've admired the breed for a long time, but never planned on owning one, but there was no way I was going to turn Amber down. And now that she's here, I'm more in love with this breed then ever, Amber may be my first Cavalier, but she won't be my last! When the weather warms up I'm going to look forward to doing some agility with her, and we're going to start working on rally and obedience, and plan to do a little confirmation just for fun (my own 3 IGs are all champion showdogs), but above all Amber will always just be my special pet!!
