    Default Brian's fault

    I asked Brian not to do this to me, but he decided on Lily as his B&T of choice. That left me with no choice but to give in to this face:





    The fact that she is a little personality and unbelievably affectionate for a girl that was a (failed) kennel breeding dog until a month ago, and cuddled up on my partner's arm, led him to agree that we probably could fit in another cavalier.

    This is Tansy who came in with Susie; the two proved very hard to home together. Susie has been homed to a wonderful pensioner down the street from me whose old collie I walk (so now I will also walk Susie); Irish Cavalier Rescue will cover the costs of her meds and care while my neighbour gets the cavalier he has wanted for ages. He is a former ballet dancer and instructor who sadly now is unstable on his feet and housebound -- so very sympathetic to a dog with a health issue and couldn't wait for her to arrive. He was so excited, and had cooked chicken for her on her arrival and Sam his old collie was thrilled with her as well.

    With Tansy here, they can visit each other every week.

    I have had both of them here the past couple of days plus am still walking my other neighbour's dog so have had 7 in total to walk and mind. Now it will be down to 'just' 5 by Saturday as tomorrow is my last day to care for Nico.

    Both Susie and Tansy are two of the sweetest dogs I've had through rescue -- a real credit to their foster Joe who along with his mum took in these two as scared unsocialised dirty little things only a month or so ago. They are transformed doglets and just love attention.

    She's beautiful Karlin.

    I was visiting a relative of mine last week and she asked how I got DJ.

    When I told her it was from your rescue she said " Oh does that girl own cavaliers too, I think I've spoken to her in the park and she walks them past my house"

    Then I remembered you lived in her area...small world.

    I wonder has she seen you with your current crew she'll think your doggie mad...aren't we all

    She is supposed to be 6 but I am kind of wondering about that -- her teeth don't look like 6 year old's nor does she generally -- but then Susie looks like a younger dog too (but her teeth are terrible).

    That is funny about the neighbour; I wonder where they live? What street? Anyone around here would know me to see at least.

    I had carefully avoided meeting either of these two as they had glowing reports of adorability from the woman who drove all the way across the country to get them from the breeder for me -- very kind person who doesn't even own cavaliers. I tried very hard to home them both elsewhere but once I met them both (after I had a home for Susie and they both were coming here) I knew it was hopeless.

    She's a quiet little thing anyway and very easy outside of wanting to be glued to your lap. She's curled up with Lucy right now. I definitely was NOT planning on another dog.

    Good grief, I think we all seem to be suffering from Black and Tan madness at the moment!
    Congratulations on your new addition Karlin. She looks an absolute darling.

    It's odd, I have had a rash of wholecolour rescue dogs come in over the past month or two -- usually I almost never get wholecolours. Have had 5 rubies just in the past while, and two B&Ts.

    Congratulations Karlin, she's very pretty. She does look younger than 6 but then in the first picture I thought she was a puppy!

    Some group photos including at least one cat would go down well
