Hello all. I just joined this forum and it looks to be a great place to talk about our favorite friends. I own a blenheim male, he's 6yrs old now but still acts like a puppy. I got my cav, Tank, when he was only 2 months old but I consider him a rescue. When he was about a year old I went off to college. I thought I was leaving him in good hands while I was away, but now that I'm back (I was away at school for 5 yrs) I regret ever leaving him. My family are not really the dog owner types. Aside from feeding him and opening the back door to let him out - it seems that they interacted with him very very little, if at all. If it weren't for our pomeranian Nugget, who is the same age, I'm sure they both would've gone crazy from the lack of human attention they've received. So now that I am in between jobs, I decided to fall in love with them again. They're still at my parent's house, but I take them for a walk every day and play with them. Because nobody has really taken them for walks the whole time I was away, they used to be really anxious and misbehaved on walks. After some time and a lot of patience - they're both much better now and not so hyper/frightened/insecure. I hope to get a bigger apartment soon so I can take have them with me full time. Anyway, sorry for the boring story.
