    There are some wonderful breeders who post on that board and I am pleased when I read some of their posts, knowing that they truly care about the Cavalier breed and are fighting hard for our dogs' welfare. There are others there who are so full of themselves and refuse to see the truth of what they are doing to our wonderful breed. How any breeder can write that health isn't the MOST important issue is beyond me! I will take a HEALTHY poorly marked Cavalier with a "gay tail" over the most beautiful show-dog who is living with the pain of SM or will die of CHF by 8 years of age any day.

    I am sorry about their offensive behaviour. They do not speak for most of the people in the UK.

    I did not read this joke. I stopped reading their attempts at humour quite a while ago, but I do find it hard to imagine how anybody on a dog forum would find the thought of throwing a dog from a moving train in any way amusing?

    "health, conformity and temperament are all of equal importance - one is not more important than the others"

    This was written by the Secretary of the UK Cavalier Club.......... The person the Kennel Club recommends as the first point of call to anyone making enquiries about cavaliers.

    As I said on CC, I think that any dog would probably think health and a pain free life was the most important.

    Oh Margaret im sorry to hear youve been censored/banned on there, your posts were the only chink of light at the end of this damn tunnel.
    Right now im disheartened,having just come back from there,the attitude of "Stick together no matter what the experts say & ridicule all attempts to improve health matters" STINKS.
    The problem is how much damage they are doing with their lousy attitude,"humour" & vindictivness,God help our breed if its left in their hands.
    I cant say what i really feel about them right now,in polite company & in public except every one of them should hang their heads in shame.
    Blessed by the love of a Cavalier!

    I know that this is so true. You don't need to apologize....they are the ones who need to.

    Then someone else will need to post asking why HarleyFarley is now a "guest".

    I only ever made 1 post on Cav Chat, as I found......and still find that the attitudes and manner of alot of the regular posters is incredibly childish....and more often than not offensive,

    You're better off out of it Margaret.....and you too Brian

Believe me, the next cavalier I purchase will certainly not have certain lines represented in it's pedigree. The way certain people are treated on that board is horrible. I have not read anything that you have posted on that board that would give the admins cause to censor you. They say they want an open forum but certain posters seem to have no problem "hitting below the belt".

I will take a HEALTHY poorly marked Cavalier with a "gay tail" over the most beautiful show-dog who is living with the pain of SM or will die of CHF by 8 years of age any day. I keep reading posts about Cavaliers diagnosed with SM who are asymptomatic. Asymptomatic by who's standards? We don't know what those dogs are feeling. Outwardly, they may not show signs of pain but we all know how stoic these dogs can be. How many of us have had dogs who became seriously sick "all of a sudden"? The truth is that dogs often "hide" their discomfort and pain until it becomes totally unbearable.

    Certain posters keep screaming that we should be putting our efforts into getting rid of puppy farms and byb instead of hounding them. Yet, every time legislation is introduced to control puppyfarms, they ask us to fight it saying that it hurts the legitimate breeders also. Yes, puppy farms are bad and need to be eliminated, but people have no control over them as individuals. Breeders, as individuals, have control over how they choose to run their breeding programs. I applaud those breeders who are doing what is right for our beautiful breed. We know you are out there and that you care. For those breeders who turn a blind eye to health issues....well.... nuff said!

    Quite agree with what you say in this post - there is no excuse for it!
