I have just read the Article in last week's Our Dogs.
What a Warped piece of Journalism,and facts that were Lies.
The Author ,who needless to say, did not have the Courage to put his or her name to the Article, has no idea about the Cavalier Breed.
The Cavalier Breed has NOT been in Existance for over a Centuary.
It was created in the late 1920's early 30's.
The unknown Author also stated about the Cavalier Heads, that no-body knows what a Cavalier Head looks Like.
All I can say about this Statement, to-days' Cavalier Heads are nothing like what they were 20-30 years ago.
Neither are many of the Cavaliers ,with their Long Backs and Short Legs now-a-days.
It was also stated in the Our Dogs Article that the SM Figure is not known in the Cavalier Breed .
Well I have News for the Writer of the Article, it is now known that there were around 60 Cavaliers MRI Scanned in February in Australia, and 50% of those Cavaliers who had no symtoms of SM ,were found to have SM
Those Cavaliers were from a Random Sample .
What a Daming Result.
All I can think that this Rubbish has been written by a Cavalier Breeder who has had Difficulty in selling their Surplus Cavalier Puppies as a Result of the PDE TV Program.
Could this be why there were about 3,000 Cavaliers registered by the KC less than Last year.
Have the Public now realized, that thanks to Jemima Harrison and her PDE TV Program.that at last the Truth can't be covered up any Longer ,that our Cavalier Breed has Two Serious Health Problems , SM and MVD.
