A cavalier...is a cavalier...is a cavalier!! Jakey was my first and I couldn't have asked for a more loving boy. Shelby has a totally different personality. She's very sweet and loving but has a much more independent streak than Jake. I don't think it's a female thing though, I think it's more of a 2nd child thing.
I do have to watch Jake when we visit others because he does tend to mark. But....it's really not a big deal. You learn what his behaviors are. When he sidles up to something...I know he's getting ready to mark...and a quick correction of "ah ah" and the problem is nipped in the bud. He just needs to be reminded that it's not okay.
