Whoops, I guess my supposition was incorrect as I see you posted in another forum that your breeder only breeds Cavaliers who are over the age of 4 and are heart clear so that's a different number than 5 or my guess of 2.5. So I'm not sure what the story is at this point. You said mom of pups is 7 and heart clear, and that is a good thing. But I'm more confused than ever about your breeder's age criteria.

Thank you all for your words of wisdom. I have learned a lot from them. Since I have already paid in full for the pup, I will bring her home, and pray for the best....but prepare for the worst. I will invest the $350 per year for health insurance on her to be sure she has the best care possible. If she DOES develope SM and is suffering, I won't let her for long. Even worst case scenario...her life will be filled with love and affection no matter how long or short it is.
Again, thank each one of you for your input, Veesha
