View Full Version : Bluebell and Lottie... best friends!

We took this picture on Xmas day, my mum and dad on the sofa... if you look closely you can see little Lottie in there too....

They are both getting on so well, when we come down in the morning they are sharing the same bed, and they are always playing together and snuggling together. So we are really pleased!

Lottie looks so tiny in the picture with your parents. Look like they are getting on great together. I know she will never replace Daisy but am sure Bluebell will be glad of the company:)

Bluebell weighs 11.4 kg now! the vet weighed her last week - i think that is quite big for a puppy of 9 months !???!

Did you mean pounds Emma? Dylan is 15 months and I think he is 6.4 kg. (14lb).

Emma, it's great how Bluebell and Lottie are getting along. Like they've known each other all along. Love the photos. Bluebell is very pretty and Lottie, as cute as she can be.

11.4kg = 25.13lbs :o That is pretty big, but it seems like there are quite a few bigger cavaliers now. Does the vet think she's almost done growing? :flwr:

Bluebell is a beautyfull girl,never mind the size,just more to love:)

Oh Emma I hope you don't think I was poking fun at Bluebell's size!! She is beautiful!!! ;) ;) I just merely realized that it seems as if I went to bed one night thinking she was so tiny and then the next day I woke up and she was all grown up :flwr:

Scout is also on the larger size for Cavaliers. She is still rather skinny at 20 months, I can still feel her ribs with no problem. She weighs 25 lbs. She definetely a solid girl. Really long legs.

Wonderful photos - good to see them getting on so well.

Can you feel Bluebell's ribs and chestbone ? She may well be a larger Cavalier, but she does look a little big from the photos.

Have a look at Laura's website:


If you scroll 1/2 way down the page, there are some excellent photos. You should be able to see a clearly defined waistline when you look from above.

well i just put Bluebell on our scales and 11.4kg is correct, the vet didn't seem worried when we weighed her though, and she isn't just fat, she's just a big cavalier. She only gets 1 meal a day, i don't over feed her and she doesn't get any of our food at all. so i think she is just a large build. i don't know if that's her stopped growing though. As far as i am concerned, she's just a nice, big, healthy cavalier!

This isn't always so, as it depends on the shaping of the ribs. Teddy has a clear waist, as does Monty, but Joly doesn't. His ribs don't curve in the same way as theirs. A friend , who breeds and judges, felt him and said his weight was fine and that he woudn't have a waist.because of his frame.

I've just weighed my two as they both have waists - although Oakley's a more solid frame so its a bit harder to see.

Oakley is 8.8 kg and Merlin is 8.4 kg - they both look the same size but Oakley has much thicker bone structure than Merlin so I think thats the difference as they both eat the same.

(you can really tell the difference in bone structure when they are wet - poor Merlin looks like a weed!)
