Enjoy reading the posts. Am a new owner of a Ruby Cavalier King Charles (will be 3 in Oct.). His name is Arnie and is a "love sponge".
Arnie was a gift from Heaven. The previous owner could not give him the attention that he craved, as her husband took a bad fall and was bedridden for a year. She is blind and has a service dog along with Andy, who is Arnie's brother. This was too much for her to handle, so Arnie came to live with us at a perfect time. He is very much overweight as his food was left down 24/7. He is 28 pounds and we have put him on a very strick diet and exercise program. We have a 15-1/2 yr old Shih-tzu, who is in very ill health and who will be leaving us soon. We had voiced our interest in the Cavalier quite a while back, but the cost prohibited us to go any further. The opportunity presented itself to take Arnie, not for money, but for a good home, which he certainly has gotten.
Arnie has become a very important part of our family and has fit in from Day One. We can see why so many people can't say enough about the Cavaliers.
We hope to hear from others soon who enjoy their "love sponge" as much as we do ours!!!
