My local pet store has a cute little Cav, but I'm concerned about him. He is now about 5 months old and has been there (caged up) for about 2.5 - 3 months. I wonder if being caged up all of that time will have any adverse effects on him. Part of me wants to buy him just to get him out of there, but I really can't start thinking that way or I'll wind up with a house full of dogs. Plus, I'm not sure that Cosmo (8.5 months old) would be able to handle a puppy at this time. Sorry if this is a long post post, as I guess that I'm just venting.
