    Default Hello from Ohio!!

    Hello!
    I'm so glad to have found this web site! My husband and I have 3 Cavaliers: India, our tricolor girl who turns 3 this month, Geordie, our blenheim boy who will be 3 years old next month, and Chocolate, our 4 year black and tan girl, who we just adopted in December 2005.

    Each one is a cute little individual; they each have their own little quirks - personality plus, as our breeder promised!!!

    We've been having our share of health issues - India tore a bit of cartilage in her knee and had surgery at eighteen months of age for luxating patella (very successful surgery - she's allowed to play agility), Chocolate has a low grade heart murmur, and now we think our Geordie ( my best-est agility buddy) might have PSOM.

    Thank goodness I found this site! We didn't know anything about PSOM. Our breeder gave us information about SM, MVD and large platelets, but PSOM was never on our radar. Geordie has the symptoms - hearing loss, neck scratching - so I've made him an appointment with Dr. Hillier, one of the PSOM specialists at Ohio State University Veterinary College (2 hours away.) The soonest they can see him is July 18.

    Thank you so much for hosting this site and everyone for sharing Cavalier information. I've been so worried about Geordie, and now it may be possible to save his hearing.[size=6][/size]

    Hi Cathy and welcome! Your avatar picture is just beautiful. So glad you found us. This place is an absolute godsend. I'm constantly amazed at how much I learn from this site.

    My Shelby is 2 1/2 (she has also had knee surgery and has a minor prolapsed valve) and my Jake will be 4 in August (he had squamous cell carcinoma and had his upper left jaw bone removed). This board was an absolute blessing when I was going through health issues. And continues to be so with day to day things.

    I am so glad you are pro-active about your dog's health! Good for you. Let us know how Geordie's appt goes.

    Thanks for the welcome! That was my first impression when I came to this site - how warm, friendly and caring everyone is here. The photos of people and their pups are absolutely priceless! Some of the stories brought tears to my eyes, while others made me call my husband over to have a good laugh!

    Yes, I put Geordie's picture in the avatar until I have time to get a snap shot of all three. Well, first I have to locate the camera!? We had fun naming Geordie and India (that's a story in itself), but Chocolate was already named when we adopted her. Sometimes we call her Chockie!

    Thanks for the welcome! That is a lot to go through - so glad the group was here to help you. Your boy and girl look so cute on the swing - they look like they're best friends! Are they both better now?

    Cathy - yes, they are both great healthwise. Now...if I could get Jake to control his attitude!! The board was just such a wonderful place to come to when I was going through this. The warmth and support was just outstanding. I have gotten so much good advice. And lots of varied information, which really helps.
