I've been thinking our senior cavaliers deserve a gallery of their own, especially following on the lovely thread in this forum on the oldies.
Barbara Garnett-Wilson's new book on cavaliers has a whole chapter devoted to pics of the oldies, and it is so enjoyable to look at! And we have some lovely old gals and fellows here as well.
And I admit I have another motive too -- having had several older cavaliers of wonderful nature come into rescue in the past couple of months. I know very few people consider the oldies when thinking about adopting another cavalier. Yet often when folks see and meet such dogs, minds change! I have no doubt that those of you who have older cavaliers and have shared your pics and stories with us, have helped so many discover the special joys of the seniors, and have helped directly or directly, several such dogs find a home.
Thinking about this, I realise that we so easily forget to celebrate the seniors in their own right and they remain largely invisible. So this new forum is a positive attempt to redress that, let those of you with older dogs share them and talk about them and the rest of us, to enjoy them, and just maybe get someone who is thinking about a rescue dog to think about talking to breed rescue about one of those special, homeless oldies.
