When i was looking for a cavalier, i spoke to a breeder who had two older males, one 6 month old and one 1 year old. I told her i had been looking for a female, but was open to a male. She said "The girls love you. The boys are IN LOVE with you."Originally Posted by Roxanne
but i don't know if you can generalize. For about a week and a half, i've been a two cavalier household, i have my daughter's 19 month old Belle here. Zack is 16 months old. They definitely have different vibes and behaviors when it comes to relationship to human. Between the two of them, Belle is the one who will jump up on me when i come home, Zack will run into the living room and wait for me to come, Belle wants to merge. But she is getting used to how things are here, and is conforming to the norms Zack sets, behaviorally.
The two adore each other, they are great pals.
Belle, more than Zack, likes to lay right on you. Zack is bigger so it's harder with him. But while i'm typing, he is laying in my lap, while she is across the room snoozing on the loveseat. Lisa asked me today if Belle has been sleeping on me. She really hasn't. But compared to Zack, if i pick her up and hold her in my lap she will lay down and get comfortable, while Zack may or may not want to lay on me, he mostly does it when it's his own choice rather than if i pick him up and put him in my lap. Belle is always lap ready.
Both follow me into the bathroom. Both follow everywhere. Belle is more literally under foot.
