Just a reminder that a couple of useful meetings are coming up.

On 7 October, there is a Kennel Club/Brisitsh Veterinary Association Seminar at Markfield in Leicestershire, to introduce the new MRI scanning scheme for SM. The panel includes Claire Rusbridge, who will talk about the latest research into SM and recent genetic research.

On 20 November there is a Health Day organised by the Cavalier Club and the Royal Veterinary College. This is at the RVC in North Mymms, near Hatfield in Hertfordshire. Lasts from 9.30 to 5, and speakers include Bendan Corcoran and Simon Swift on MVD, Tom Lewis and Sarah Blott on the EBV project, Natasha Olby from the US, Holger Volk from RVC on pain control, Imelda McGonnell on the Foetal Tissue project, and a round table discussion on SM.

Thanks Kate,

Both days look interesting, so I will probably be going.

I live near to the RVC, so I can give you a lift from Hatfield Station if you are going?

I'm also thinking of going to RVC one. Does anyone know if you have to pre-book as couldn't find any details on the Cavalier site.

There does not seem to be any details about booking yet, but there is a provisional programme shown if you go to 'special events' on the Cavalier Club website.

Dr Brendan Corcoran from Edinburgh, who is talking about heart research, is one of the researchers who receives cell tissue from the SM Cavalier Collection Scheme.

The Meeting about the important new BVA/KC MRI Scheme is on Thursday.

A new forum member introduced herself a few days ago.

Today, October 5th, is a significant anniversary for me for three different reasons.

I've put it all into my latest blog.

Happy Anniversary to you and Roger, Margaret. Hope you're going out for a nice meal this evening - maybe to that yummy Chinese restaurant :)

Happy Birthday to Monty too - I imagine they are having a big party, with jelly and ice cream and balloons ;)



The meeting on Thursday sounds very interesting, I hope lots of people are able to attend. I will be especially interested to hear the latest on the gene research.

MEETINGS COMING UP.

Hopefully we will hear on the List about how the Research is Progressing., and what the Kennel Club Health Schemes are to be for our Cavaliers.

I noticed that Margaret had mentioned about some Cavalier Breeders hoping to derail this Meeting, I do so hope this won't happen.

What is the problem with those Cavalier Breeders, are they scared that they could be loseing Income from their Cavalier Puppy Sales.

It sure makes you wonder !!!!
