Charlie McFarlie is 9 years old
Charlie McFarlie turned 9 in January.
He's had good health, so far, but it got me thinking about how long he will be with us and it got me a bit depressed.
We love him dearly and I'm hoping he will live a good, long life.
Sorry for posting this, but I just thought I'd reach out to my fellow Cavalier lovers.

I am sure I will need the same advice at some point, but healthy at 9 is great and just cherish every day! Love on that guy and a big virtual hug to you both!!!

Way to go Charlie...I am sure you don't act a day over 2
It is hard to think about endings as they all come sometimes don't they? It can be depressing, but you should feel so lucky to have him at 9 and healthy! What a gift he has given you

We took on a wee rescue 2 years ago and Kaley is now 9. We lost our other Cav,Sonny, to MVD at 10 and although Kaley is in better health then Sonny was at 9 I do worry about Kaley. My only advice would be really appreciate every day you have with Charlie. I appreciate even wee small things we do with Kales and I just pray she'll be with us for a long time to come. Please post some pics of Charlie!!

Having a healthy 9 year old Cavalier is something to celebrate. I know it gets depressing sometimes when you think of how long you have them. Mine are 4 and 5 with MVD and SM. I enjoy every day I have with them.

I have a healthy 10 and 7 yr old and an 8 yr old with epilepsy and MVD. I try to enjoy them now and not worry about what the future will bring, though now and again I do tend to wonder how long more I will have them, I suppose it's hard not to as they get older, but just try to enjoy the here and now and build up those happy memories
