View Full Version : Hello from the good 'ole U.S.

Looks like I may be the only one from the United States..but "hello" to you all ! :)
My name is Diane..and we have a little ( ruby) K.C. Cavalier.
His name is Wrigley and he just turned 7 mo. old.
He is a bundle of energy..but just the sweetest little guy !!
Wrigley lives w/ our 108 lb. (very laid back!) Black Labrador ~ Zeb.
They absolutely luv each other..and we love them !
We lost our Golden retreiver ( age 11 + yrs.) about 6 months ago to cancer (R.I.P.):(.
He was a sweetheart..we still miss him.
We wanted another dog ( we believe in having 2 dogs :o)...
so we did some research & found that the Cavaliers were just what we were looking for.
We owned dogs for many years...( retrievers mostly) so this is the 1st time we have had a smaller breed...and we are in love !
I am looking forward to chatting w/ you all..and sharing about our pups. :cool:
....could someone tell me how to share a picture of our furry friends?....:confused:

Hello and welcome. :) No you are not the only one from the US -- it is a very international board and we have tons of cavalier owners here from the US. :D Sorry about your loss of your retriever. Many people feel cavaliers have similar personalities to goldens in a smaller package. :)

Hi There! You aren't the only US member :-)

I am from St Louis originally and now live in NJ with my two ruby boys, Sparky and Lucky.

There is a thread in the getting started section about posting pictures ... here you go!

Welcome! Definitely not the only one from the This side of the pond. We relocated from NY to SC. I'm sorry for your loss.

Please forgive me...I'm just getting used to the forum. I think I DID post twice. ...ooops !!
Thank you for your kind replies.
I will post some pictures here soon *!
Yes.. I do think that the Cavaliers personality is much like a Golden retriever.
Very gentle and loving...and full of energy !! Hahaha*
I find it interesting actually..the different personalities each breed has.
Our Cav. ~ Wrigley seems to love the water as much as our Labrador ~ Zeb.
And believe it or not..they BOTH are snugglers.
I also think it funny how "bold" these little guys are !
We have about 1/4 of an acre that backs up to woods & a small creek.
It is completely fenced in...but we have deer, coons, possums..all kinds of critters that walk thru at times.
Huge flood lights...but I still NEVER let Wrigley outside at night without Zeb.
Zeb chases off anything...even tho he is actually a HUGE lover boy.
Wrigley thinks he is the same size as Zeb I do believe (*wink)..as he is fearless!!
They certainly keep me entertained...and I love them to pieces !

You wouldn't happen to be a Cubs fan would you? (with a name like Wrigley) Welcome from my four. Be aware - they're addictive!

Haha.. I don't watch baseball..but my hubby does...so yes. The name came from Wrigley field. My husband is big into sports. Believe it or not..he 1st wanted the name Ditka. ( for Mike Ditka)..and I said...> nooooo !!

Looked at the pictures of your Cavaliers..they are so cute*
P.S. You are near the Chicago area I see?.... we are 3 hrs. away.

Nope I'm in the US too. Born and raised in Virginia!!! I have a 3 month old cavalier named Fletcher, I'm totally in love with. I like to post here because #1 if you have any questions someone here always has good advice espeically in health and #2 we are all so in love with our little cavaliers I think we find more joy in their little stories (well at least I do)

Yes, this forum is pretty international. Being from the "south" I have to refrain from using words like ya'll :rolleyes:
