Hello all - I am so happy to see so many happy Cavalier Moms and Pops gathered together to share thier stories. I am a new CKCS mom of Jasper - a 5 or 6 year old rescue by our San Diego CKCS club rescue (coordinated by Cathy Torres). As I understand it, Cathy was notified by someone on this board that Jasper was just rescued from the Pound (poor thing) by a Chi-wa-wa (SP?) rescue group some 75 miles way and put on Petfinder. Thank goodness I had my application in when Jasper came in as he is just the best little guy. I feel so lucky to have him now. We went through a transition period because he was abit nervous going through so many hands to get to his final home - but he has adjusted wonderfully - even playing now with my rescue cat, Dayzee Mai. I feel so thankful that the power of message boards like this saves lives like Jasper and made me a very happy Mum.
