    Smile Our new addition and a final farewell to my angel Harry

    Hello everyone

    I decided to take a break from CavalierTalk after I lost Harry as it was so overwhelming and unfortunately I was finding it difficult to come on here. I found myself depressed and isolating myself from everyone and everything but I am now leading a happy life again full of acceptance, hope and memories of my special little guy So thank you everybody for the messages of support I am so grateful to you all, you really are wonderfully special people.

    When Harry passed, my first words were "I can never have another dog" especially not a Cavalier for fear of the heartbreak. I was scared of 'replacing Harry' but I know thats not how it works. For weeks, I was casually looking over the internet for weeks - emaphasis on the words casually and looking Some said it was too soon, but weeks felt like months along without Harry by my side, I saw a picture of a perfectly adorable Cavalier puppy and his littermates, I later found out he was living only 30 minutes away. Mum suggested we go and look but I told her I wasnt sure about it and was expecting to come back home diappointed and disheartened. After much deliberation I decided to visit him, so me, my mum and my boyfriend set off on a Sunday morning. As soon as they opened the door, 3 adult beautiful Cavaliers came bounding towards us and I felt I could cry, not with sadness, with happiness. I had missed this so much. So we went in and sat down, all 5 puppies were asleep in the conservatory. The owners called "Puppppiieeees" and they all woke up and ran towards us like something from 101 Dalmations. Anyway, after visiting, I called back a few hours later to say I would take Buster home, who has now become my Charlie In fact we nearly had his brother too! But this was just too much for my poor dad (not a huge dog lover) to take in!

    So I have come to you all to introduce Charlie (aka Charlie Bear - you will see why!)

    My first morning in my forever home..

    Wow little Charlie is so cute!!! I'm so happy for you not just on getting the new puppy, I know it was heartbreaking for you to come to terms with the lost of your Harry. His memory lives on no matter if you ever owned a new dog or not. I'm also glad you don't feel like your replacing him either Charlie is his own dog....that special relationship can be had several times with different dogs in different ways. Again I'm glad your on your way to learning that.

    Sending lots of well wished and its nice to met you super cute Charlie.

    Charlie Bear is so so super cute and looks very very happy and content. Lucky him! I believe this is exactly what Harry would like for you to have.

    I am so very happy for you. Harry would be proud of you for opening your heart once again. I know how difficult this was for you as I lost Sydney on April 4 and even though I know there will be another cavalier in my life, for me, not just yet. Someday I too will be ready.

    Charlie has the most adorable face. So glad you have him. Have fun and enjoy all his new adventures and keep us posted with stories and pictures!

    Charlie is adorable and he does look like a little teddy bear!

    I love the memorial plaque you had made for sweet Harry.

    Congratulations on little Charlie, he is so cute, nothing will ever replace Harry, they are all different and special in their own way. Hoping he will give you many years of joy. The memorial plaque for Harry is lovely.
