    They may ony be small but they have a HUGE impact on whoever they meet. They seem to know when things are not going so well..

    One of my mum's goldens has just been diagnosed with lymphoma sarcoma. Merlin used to jump up at him but I sat down with him in his bed and told him that Uncle Dollar wasn't well and cried with him. We then went to see my mum and Merlin went straight to Dollar - gave him a gentle kiss and then went to mum to give her a big baby hug (as bug baby hugs always cheer you up).

    He seemed to know that the atmosphere was different.......

    They are soo intelligent and you can't thank them enough for their kind eyes and gentle expression in all the right situations.

    I can only thank Charles II for reintroducing the breed as it is today.

    Wow. Thanks so much for everyone's kind words and wonderful, touching stories. I love all of the rewards that come with opening your home and heart to the "kids" and am amazed by how big such small hearts can be I can't say enough how great this community is even though I have only been part of it for such a short time. I have enjoyed "meeting" and hearing about all of you.

    Thank-you Karlin et al.

    Sincerely,

    This is the most touching thread ever! It'll take me a while to regain my composure after reading all that

    It is so heart waring though to see how special our little dogs can be

    Very touching stories here! Finn is a very special one! Thank you so much for sharing such a personal and heartwarming story with us! (I really need to get a box of tissue for the computer now....almost every day I weep when I check in with Cavalier Talk!) Thank you to Sara too.

    You know, it isn't a total surprise that our precious ones have such compassion and a knowledge that takes us back at times. Every day my two make me laugh, cry and feel deeply grateful that they are in my life. They are little wonders....I feel like God has given me a very precious gift.....

    Gosh... This thread is so touching. Thank you for sharing the wonderful treasures our precious Cavaliers are. I hope someday my little furbaby may aspire to be as compassionate, loving, and forgiving.
