View Full Version : Puppy enquiries

I have sent off my Puppy Buyer's Guide to five people today, there are more and more enquiries every week.

I have decided to set up my own website where I can put the information for people to download for themselves. A very nice young lady is giving me help & advice with the website, but what I now need is puppy photos to go on it.
Tania has sent me some lovely pictures, but I would appreciate some cute 8-9 week old ruby or black & tan photos, if anyone has some.

There are so many pet owners looking for puppies from breeders that do all the health testing, and if there is anyone visiting this forum who has such a litter, I would happily add you to the list I send out.

Wonderful news, Margaret - haven't got any puppy photos (only the golden oldies) but I'm sure there will be plenty of people on CT who have.

Good luck with the new venture and look forward to getting the URL in due course

Hello Margaret

A website to direct people to for healthy bred puppies is long over due ,this will be such a benefit to puppy buyers and our Cavaliers.

We all thank you ,and I shall trawl for any nice puppy pics of any of mine .:)

The website is a fine idea,puppy buyers need a no nonesense guide to choosing a puppy and advice on how to interpret certificates etc.
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished project.

Hi Margaret

Another thought on this .As having four toddlers I am often stopped and quizzed about them by different people and many times have I been asked if I could recommend a breeder and have always declined apart from giving them a CavalierMatters card and pointing them to CavalierTalk .Now I shall print off some copies of the list and keep them in the car to distribute to people as and when I get asked about Cavalier Breeders .:)

Any resources like this are so helpful and can prevent so many mistakes! Way to go!

Brilliant idea Margaret, will you be including anyone from this side of the water on your list?
I'll have a look, I'm sure I have some photos of Bosco (ruby) when he was little and if I do I'll send them to you.

Love the idea of the puppy guide!!!

As for photos of rubies, you could use this one if you like - it's been used by lots of byb's on GumTree and other sites (Davy and others sent me links). But it is my original picture and I will actually give you permission to use it if you want. :)

My sister took it on Lucky's first day home but he was 11 weeks:

What a great idea Margaret.
I'll see if I can find some "ickle pickle" pictures of Pippin and send them to you. He was a cute little munchkin. Still is. :lotsaluv:

Dear Tupup,

I think just one or two of the very cutest will probably do.

Get them to me whatever way is easiest for you, although it would perhaps be nice for others to see them?

Thank you to everyone that has replied with offers of pictures, I do appreciate it . I will certainly have plenty of really lovely photos to choose from.

Hi

I can vouch for that ,when we decided on a fourth it was Margaret that we turned to for help ,advice and guidance and then arrived the horror " Lily " who sits on my chest every morning at 5.30 and licks the end of my nose .

This is great news Margaret. You were also very kind and gave me guidance and advice when I was looking for a puppy last year.:grin:

awwwwww.... sorry folks but Cavalier cuteness is unsurpassable. What a sweet picture of Lucky.

I'm so glad there will finally be a website with this valuable information for people interested in obtaining cavalier puppies from truly health focused breeders.

This is a service that has been needed for a very long time. :thmbsup:

That is wonderful, good luck!

I can only hope that someone can somehow duplicate that effort here in the U.S. when folks see what you have done. :)

I have been working really hard on my puppy buyers advice website.
Now I am a real dinosaur when it comes to computers, but I decided to have a go, & started working on a website design programme. Ambitious stuff for someone who had no idea what a widget was.

I found it time consuming, infuriating and fascinating. I have spent hours learning what I could not do & undoing what I should not have done.
I have now been offered some help from someone who really knows what they are doing, so hopefully it won't be too long now.

I agree that Maggie Ford, the Cavalier Club Health Representative, always wrote a great deal of commonsense.
I'm not sure what has happened since she was prevented from going to the February 3rd meeting called to discuss the BVA/KC scheme.

Not much of a reward for the two years of hard work she put into the scheme

Looking at my Cavalier Club election papers, Maggie Ford has done her three years and is eligible for re-election but does not wish to stand - a shame, because she has done a good (if occasionally uphill, I would think) job as health rep. I would guess she didn't go to the meeting because she wouldn't be health rep/on the committee to follow through with further negotiations.

I'm embarking on a website myself (for my mustard business) so I share your pain, Margaret! Glad you've got someone to help - could do with someone myself.
