    Thank you . I'm assuming that there isn't a list of MRI scanning breeders?

    Thanks for confirming my suspicion about Georgia. I'd look north, skipping the Carolinas to Virginia, up to, say, Suffolk in that commonwealth, and then jump to Connecticut, around Hawleyville or Bridgeport.

    You have to ask. Then, if the phone is not slammed down on you, proceed to ask for results, in writing, signed by the examining specialist.

    And those are exactly the breeders that I would contact first - Pat and Anne.....and then I'd talk with a couple in the midwest area.

    That said, I must report that in April I adopted a young female Blenheim that was found wandering the streets of suburban Atlanta - no collar/tag, no chip, no ads in paper, no missing report at local shelters. I took her to foster for a few days, and you know the rest of the story. I am a failed foster home many times over. She is the most pitiful example of a Cavalier I've ever seen - 8.5 lbs at 1-3 years old - I call her my Cavalier/rat cross. But she has the quintessential Cavalier temperament - happy, outgoing, playful, smart. Thus far, she has no health problems other than mildly luxated patellae. I purchased insurance for her right away, and she is chipped and registered now. She was just spayed last week as she came in season right after I got her, so I hope she bodies up a bit.

    But.....if I were going to purchase a puppy, it would be a very different matter.

    Yes, I read your new thread about purchasing a puppy. But you are confused; I am not searching for a puppy, I was only responding to your questions in this original thread.
