View Full Version : Season's Greetings

28th November 2009, 05:05 PM
It's nearly that time of year again...

This thread is open for everyone to post, either a simple message, poems, photos or whatever you would like to share.

However at this special time of year we would like everyone to think about Irish Cavalier Rescue {run by Karlin, who also owns and manages the forum, and is rescuing 50 - 70 Cavaliers a year}; and The Syringomyelia Cavalier Collection Scheme run by Margaret Carter - more info here http://board.cavaliertalk.com/showth...lection+scheme (http://board.cavaliertalk.com/showthread.php?t=28230&highlight=syringomyelia+collection+scheme)
This is an important research project....see http://www.veterinary-neurologist.co.uk/

We are therefore asking for donations to one {or both!} of these in exchange for posting on the thread. This would be a very special way to perhaps remember loved ones {human and animal} whom are no longer with us.

Irish Cavalier Rescue
please donate either by Paypal karlin@indigo.ie
or by bank transfer to the Cavalier Rescue account at Bank of Ireland, 2 College Green, Dublin 2;
sort code 90-00-17 and account number, 86741757.

The Syringomyelia Cavalier Collection Scheme
please donate either by PayPal https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/we...ry_lang.x=true (https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_home&country_lang.x=true).
Entering the following email address at the PayPal site will bring up the 'SM DNA Fund' account: penny.knowler@ntlworld.com. Donations can be made in several currencies using a credit card or PayPal funds.

Please PM Margaret C with the date and amount, so that the money can allocated for the SM Collection Project.

Alternatively you can make a cheque out to 'SM DNA Fund' & send it to Margaret, please PM her for the address.

:thnku::thnku::thnku::thnku::thnku: your generosity is much appreciated cl*pcl*pcl*pcl*pcl*p

I would like to wish everyone on the board a very Happy Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful New Year.

Our precious Rupert


Our thanks to everyone who contributes to the board and makes it such a wonderful place to visit, for sharing your knowledge and friendship. Also many thanks to those who assist in rescue work, wherever you are in the World; and a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the health research. cl*pcl*pcl*p

Thinking at this special time of year of those no longer with us - most especially Cruz, Rupert, Kyla, Peaches, Fillipa and Izzy {Cavaliers}; also all our other animal companions who honoured us with their companionship. You are all in our thoughts and hearts.

Our thoughts are with those serving abroad - and of those who will not be returning :(; also with their families and friends.

At this time please also remember those less fortunate - rescues are always grateful for items your dogs are no longer using - especially leads, collars, bedding, bowls, useable toys etc

Hi Nicki

I am right in thinking that to be eligible to post a Xmas greeting here one should also be prepared to make a donation to either Karlins or Margarets Cavalier Charities or ideally both charities.:)

1st December 2009, 11:08 PM
Preferably Brian but obviously we are not forcing people - we won't be sending round the heavy mob if people don't donate LOL

It is to raise money for both worthwhile causes but if people are not able to donate then they are still welcome to post - and we will appreciate their good wishes just as much :thnx:

My cavalier boys, not amused at the idea of putting up Christmas decorations.

I got so carried away with working out how to put text on the photo that I put the names in the wrong order,:oops: Tommy is the blenheim.

Seasons Greetings and thank you to everyone on this forum for their support. This is a great community of cavalier lovers.

9th December 2009, 08:54 PM
These are all lovely photos that you are putting on this thread, the idea of which is to send Season's Greetings to each other, while at the same time raising money for Karlin's Irish rescue and Margaret's SM collection scheme.

But I've noticed lots of gorgeous Christmassy photos appearing on other threads too in the past few days.

Can anyone be tempted to put them on here for a donation to two such good causes (and so close to our CT hearts?)

Dawn ,Luke and I plus Poppy,Daisy,Rosie and Lily wish all members a Very
Happy Christmas and New Year ,and especially to Karlin a BIG THANK YOU for your work and skill in providing this platform which cultures happiness and friends and of course all our resident experts like Margaret ,Nicki ,Carol ,Bet ,Flo ,Sins, Mark and our many friends across the water who all rally round if any of us report an illness to our furbabies and not forgetting tupup who has been greatly missed by all .


And the girls have clubbed together so a donation to Karlins fund and Margarets fund both on the way

I can't let this message go Past with-out Thanking You All for making me so Welcome on the List, I know I was a BESOM ( Another Scot's Word)in the early Days with what I was saying, Hopefully now I am forgiven.

You a cracker ,I wish there were many more of you with your knowledge and tenacity for all things good for our Cavaliers.

Best Wishes and Happy Xmas and New Year.

I will make a donation to the Cavalier Scheme and Karlins Rescue. My contribution next year will be two cards designed for Christmas next year, proceeds will go to the Cavalier Campaign. I am also having made some head rest/cushions which I will post you pictures as soon as they are ready. I am disappointed, I was hoping to have everything to show you before Christmas.
I would like to say thank you to everyone for all the support and advice they given me.
I am showing: Two Designs, then insert, then Back!http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2631/4194256557_2a92a2debd.jpghttp://farm5.static.flickr.com/4043/4194218103_18e10aca1f.jpg

18th December 2009, 06:22 PM
WOW they are fabulous Tania, thank you so much :D

Count me in for some cards for next year!!!

Thank you to everyone who has posted - don't forget we are happy for any greetings, messages etc, you don't need to post a photo.

20th December 2009, 06:30 AM
Happy Holidays to everyone!

20th December 2009, 11:59 AM
I want some of those cards for next year too Tania. They're fabulous! Sign me up.

21st December 2009, 10:06 PM
Last few days for posting your greetings - please take this opportunity to help and to wish everyone a happy festive season. :thnku:

21st December 2009, 10:21 PM
Brian thanks so much for the VERY sweet card, it is just BEAUTIFUL!!!

Brian and his doglets sent me the original of the card he posted above which arrived today and has pride of place for all to see here. It is a lovely artful card and has my dogs wondering 1) why I didn't do something like that for them and 2) why we don't have a ruby yet! :lol:

I also got a lovely card from Sins which has a suspiciously familiar looking cavalier sprawled before a nice winter fire... I just love getting these cavalier cards with our Cavaliertalk cavaliers on them! :)

Tania what fabulous cards -- just love those! -- next year be sure to let me know and we can put up a link here for people to order them.

Thanks to all for the kind donations -- I sent mine over to Margaret today, having forgotten til this afternoon!! icon_blshing

Merry christmas from Elliot and Millie to all on Cavaliertalk:)

Sophie is not very photogenic, and does not like the camera, so I don't have an updated picture. If you will click on the link below, you'll see a lovely e-card I received from a friend today, that I think everyone here will enjoy.


22nd December 2009, 10:56 PM
Happy Holidays!! Thank you to everyone for all you do for our cavies and for allowing me to be part of this great community. Have a great New Year!


23rd December 2009, 09:59 PM

This is obviously a past photo, but it's got a good Christmassy feel to it, so thought I'd share it with you all to add my very best wishes to the growing tally on this thread.

Have already given Margaret a donation for her scheme, so will now Paypal something for Karlin's K9 Krew.


23rd December 2009, 10:21 PM
Oh those are both such cute pictures! :D Are the dogs about to draw something with the chalks? :lol:

23rd December 2009, 11:55 PM
I love this thread, don't we have the most wonderful cavaliers, and most of them seem to be natural little posers.

Tania's cards are wonderful, we certainly have some very clever people on this forum.

Thank you to all those who have made donations, your generosity is very much appreciated.

24th December 2009, 07:57 PM
Merry Christmas to everyone from a sunny and hot South Africa. Thank-you so much for all the invaluable advice and support. May 2010 be a great year filled with lots of love, laughter and cavalier kisses!

Kathleen, Thomas and Jade
P.S. Sorry, I couldn't attach photo. Posting rules state that I may not post attachments?
