Just thought you'd like to see a few photos of Mickey. I'll add more as I get round to it.

Mickey died just after 11pm on the 22nd February 09, of MVD, aged 11 and a half. He'd be acting completely normal until that afternoon, when he started struggling to breathe, and it all went down hill from there. He went to the vets that evening and they did everthing they could and they stayed with him; we are told he died peacefully in his sleep. Poor baby was exhausted. My only regret is that I wasn't with him when he passed, but I was boarding on panic attack state and it just wouldn't have been good. I spent a few moments with him sat in our garden just before he went to the vets though, I hugged and kissed him and told him how much I loved him, and I think he understood.

Can't see the picture.
Sorry for your loss- looks like you will be bringing home a new puppy soon. :) I hope he will bring you just as much love and joy as Mickey did. Cavaliers are pretty good at that.

Oh sorry, don't really know how to do these pictures, not very good with things like that :rolleyes: will try again and see if I can sort it out.

Yeah looking forward to the new puppy, it will be nice having a Cavvie in the house again.

So sorry to read of your loss, Mickey was a very handsome looking boy. My Jasper has MVD and has been on medication since January, he seems fine except for a few coughs, he is still being monitored by the vets, she wants to get him off of the water tablets due to they can damage the kidneys. I do worry what the future will bring for him.

So sorry for your loss. :flwr:

To get a picture to show, you need to post the link to the actual image -- you are posting the link to the entire webpage on which it is based. You can get a full explanation of how to do this here:

What a gorgeous boy, you must miss him terribly.

I'm sure he understood your goodbye, and perhaps it would have been more stressful for him if you'd been with him if you were that distressed anyway. Please don't feel badly - he obviously had a wonderful life with you, and was lucky that he was only ill for a short time.

What a wonderful looking cavalier! I'm so sorry for your loss. After our last golden died 3 years ago, it seemed so quiet around the house:(

Although you couldn't be with him, I'm sure he knew you were there in his thoughts.

Pauline - thank you so much for putting the photo on properly for me! :)

Jasperspaw - sorry to hear your boy has MVD, I wish him well xx

Thanks for all your kind comments, brought a lump to my throat! He really was a beauty, on his back there was a 'C' shape in white fur, I used to always say it stood for 'Cavalier' :p
