We're about to move from NZ to Perth WA. Unfortunately due to his age and some concerns as to how he'd handle a long flight and major climate change, I made the choice to find Rory a new home and did rather well at it too... He chose it.
To give a little background, I was never a "Cav" person. About 6 years ago I purchased a boat and decided to live on it. Then found that some company was duely needed. Having grown up with Terriers I decided that one of those was for me but a dog of around 2 to 3 years of age would be best, thus avoiding the puppy "I'm going to eat everything" stage (not good on a boat, might chew something vital). So I proceeded to phone all of the local vets and animal shelters to see if a suitable dog needed a home. Eventually one phoned back and said we have a Cav (a certain then ignorant person asked "how big is he?"). So off I went for a look... I went back to my boat with a very large Blenheim (16kg) and a quite lazy dog to boot.
Yet we shared many adventures together and he went everywhere with me. Some of the funniest are..
The "Rum incident"
The "Crayfish incident"
The "Resort incident" (involves kids wanting to take him for a walk, parents buying me a drink as a "thankyou" how dog and I got back to the boat let alone on it to this day remains a mystery)
The customer at work who says "I can't pay my bill but I'll give you $300 for your dog" (the bill was $250.. Guess who wasn't allowed back in the workshop again)
The best was while watching a big fireworks display on the deck of a friends boat, me and Rory sitting there watching it and Police boat saw us... Cop:"You can't do that" Me:"Yes I can" Cop "but the noise scares them" Me "Not him" Cop "Why not?" Me"Coz he's deaf!!".. Rory may have been deaf but he certainly could hear when I got the food box out.
Which brings me to the point of this post..
Where can I find another like him?I know that isn't really possible yet another cav is needed
Any help would be good
