You all may know abot this book but just in case:-

Whilst browsing at Manchester Airport book store I came across this book called My Life with George by Judith Summers. Its a delightful read about a bereaved family who buy a Cavalier king Charles Spaniel.
Animal enthusiasts will love this story of four-legged emotional rescue and how George re awoke their laughter- whilst driving them barking mad along the way. Enjoy.

It's a lovely book, well worth a look at. Donna lent me it a while ago, have read it twice!

It's a great book, more about bereavement than Cavaliers.

Read this book recently, I found myself laughing, occasionally I had a lump in my throat, I really enjoyed it, I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it yet.

I enjoyed it too although the range of health issues that dog suffered is incredible. I don't think the lady went to a health focused breeder. I was sorry there wasn't any photos though.

I think poor George had health issues because she stuffed his face full of the most unsuitable food imaginable!!:pHe trained her exceptionally well too.....
I enjoyed the book a lot mainly because we could all identify with how much a dog becomes part of your life and eventually takes over and we love it that way.

Was she Irish? I think I saw a full page story on it in one of the newspapers about a year ago. It was just after our second pup died from a litany of health problems, but the article made me smile and resolved me to stick with the breed (although I was anyway!).
(funnily enough my mother cut it out for me because she thought it would put me off getting another cavalier!)
