Hello there! I'm Ariel, I've been reading the forum since we got a cavalier a month ago. Prior to that we've been discussing what kind of dog to have, my daughter likes pomerenian, well because of the influence of most celebrities but we all settled for a cavalier because it's friendly with kids and sociable. Our cavalier, named Cody, is now almost 14 weeks and weighs around 7.4 lbs. I'm glad to be a part of this forum, very informative for a new owner like me.
