View Full Version : Hello to all - I'm new

8th October 2008, 11:56 AM

This is a wonderful forum. I've recently lost my beautiful tri, Bailey. He was 12 years old. I knew I wouldn't have him for a life-time, but nothing prepared me for the shock and heartache.

He was a very healthy boy with no heart murmur, but he got cancer.

Dan is my ruby boy 12 and a half years and he misses him. He is in good health now, and I hope we will have him with us for a good while.

I know I have been very lucky to have two healthy boys - and I hope to get another cav in time. It is just so worrying to hear that there is such a high incidence of heart problems and this other problem SM.

I really don't want to change my breed. Cavs are just perfect for me, especially as I work from home and my cavs are so content with having me here. Well Dan is now.

Thanks for listening.

Hi Mary icon_welcome So sorry for the loss of your boy Bailey :hug:I hope Dan continues to do well. I think when dogs live to be 10/12 years old, we kind of think that they will live forever and it is such a shock when they go :(

I look forward to seeing pics of both your boys :)

hi mary, im new too. my name is maria, i have a 7 month old cavi named honey, she's beautiful. she's my 1st cavi. i had 2 springers, lucky died on 1 dec 07 and pebbles died on march 6 08. my heart is broken. they were 15 n 14 yrs. i would have loved another springer, but im getting older and springers need so much excerise. i decided on a cavi because they look like springers and i love the nature of the spaniels. sorry you lost your baby, but they never leave you, they stay in your heart forever. hope we can be friends. love honey n maria xxxxxxxxxxxcavtiny:jump:
