Hi Julie.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Cavaliers!
Our Charlie is four and he often snores like an old man
(much louder then me) :).
It hasn't caused any problems yet (except for a bit of lost sleep on our part).
I'm not sure about the red eye but I'm sure your Vet will address this on your visit.

The whites of cavalier eyes are suppose to look 'muddy'. They shouldn't look swollen or irritated. It should look like the color is blending from the iris to the white. This is very hard to explain without a pic-lol

If they are red, it could indicate an eye infection or that they are a bit irritated but your vet will be able to tell you if it is anything needing treatment. :thmbsup:
