    Sorry for the charlie-biased post, I know this is a cavalier-forum...!
    It is certainly not as bad in charlies but its still a problem , I lost an 8 year old to mvd . the other two were 11 & 12.
    My girl that just died still had a good heart at 11 & I had an 11 year old boy who still had a good heart when he was put to sleep for a back injury.

    my sisters two boys still have good hearts at 10 & 12

    we also had a rescue charlie who was about 16 when she died. so its not all doom & gloom.

    A King Charles spaniel; known in the US as an English Toy Spaniel. It is the breed from which cavaliers were reintroduced, though originally the toy spaniel was longer nosed as you can see in old paintings. Also from 19th c paintings you can see there were still lots of longer nosed cavalier type toy spaniels around as well.

    The Charlie discussion is very interesting! And they are close cousins too.

    probably closer than you think in somecases ,lol

    a couple of my charlies from a certain line have been more cavalier in character.
    Then there are some suspiciously shortnosed freckled cavaliers around too

    Thank you Pauline - my English is ok I guess - just a bit rusty from no practise (maybe that's what makes it interesting...te-hee! ). I did live in UK for 5 years, but have been back in Finland for almost 8 now. I don't sound as <good> anymore when I speak, but at least I can express myself quite clearly.

    Thank you on my mum's behalf - just spoke with her on the phone and made plans for next weekend's show and found out we have entered my kc puppy Orly twice to the same show

    entirely OT: happy to find out Finn Martti Ahtisaari (our previous president) was just nominated the Nobel peace prize "for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts"

    <tongue-in-cheek mode on>
    Keeping in mind all that has happened during the last months or so, maybe he should come and resolve some conflicts in the dog world too...<tongue-in-cheek mode off>

    I'm sure he would join those with truly altruistic intentions and fight for the best outcome for the dogs
