    Default Celebrity Cavalier Owners are the best to raise awareness

    I know that recent talk has been about the health of the breed and I feel people will listen if there is a face. Diane Sawyer of Good Morning America has a Cavalier. If you want to get the message across, the best way to do it is by the press. The problem is, I think with the BBC special it did not say what could be done. I don't have the solution but I do think that people who love this breed needs to know the health concerns that they are facing. I am not the best person but I don't want to give up.

    Reagan had a Cavalier named Rex.

    Liv Tyler has a Cavalier named Neil, but from a very good/health conscious breeder. She is probably ulikely to have SM issues (or heart issues at this point) but given she did go to a good breeder might be another source to contact.

    I think it's a good idea, but I'm not really sure what platform the show would be a part of ... an Oprah show would be great if it could be arranged to focus on heart problems in the breed and how good heath-conscious breeding can help.

    Back in 1997, two of our Cavaliers were on a 2-hour live nationwide (USA) call-in television program on the old America's Health Network, called "Ask the Veterinarian". The vet took calls on all sorts of pet health matters, but her commentary between calls was about MVD in the Cavalier King Charles spaniel. During commercial breaks, my wife briefed the vet on various cardiology journal articles about MVD.

    I don't know if there are any similar programs being produced now, but in two hours, the vet was able to cover just about everything that was medically known about MVD in our breed. She was Dr. Jane Leon, who I just discovered has a website, http://drjanepetvet.com/

    Mary Matalin and her husband, James Carville, had two Cavaliers, both of which were short-lived. They then gave up and switched to another breed.

    I tried to contact jennifer love hewitt, but could not get on her forum. I think it would not hurt at all expecially since who could not love cavaliers. I know kristin davis does not have a cavalier but is huge on animal rights and who can forget elizabeth taylor. I am going to try the best I can, but who knows

    I know that Julianne Hough from Dancing with the Stars has a cavalier, she got it last year I believe. It was in a magazine! Maybe she is an option! Someone was just on the cover of a popular american magazine with their cavalier, I can't recall who it was. Maybe Jaquelyn Smith from Charlie's angels.. not sure! I'll try to figure that one out!

    In the UK DJ Chris Evans has cavs and is BIG dog lover. He would be a good choice. Type of thing they could have on The One Show
