Apologies if the images are too big.
Beautiful photo's, what a handsome boy he was.

Wow, what a handsome boy!
Charlie looks a lot like your dog markings wise, but his hair doesn't start to get long until halfway to his tummy. His chest, legs, butt and tummy have long hair, but his top and sides are short. It's as if we gave him a weird haircut.
Wow, I have never seen a cavalier with such long hair! I think handsome Toby would win as the hairiest cavalier ever posted on CavalierTalk.

Gracie has a very similar coat to Toby! Although when I adopted her a few months ago I brought her straight to the groomers, haha! She also has much shorter hair along her back. Her coat is so fluffy it makes her look fat, the poor girl! Everyone thinks shes overweight but when you pick her up you can feel her ribs, Im a bit defensive.

What a gorgeous boy
Toby had an amazing coat, what a very handsome boy he was. My youngest has a long coat, similar to the look of Toby`s but does`nt come down quite as to the ground as Toby`s, and it`s lovely as soft, I love his coat but it has to be trimmed , I take him to the Groomers as I am not brave enough to do it myself. My older cavalier has a completely different coat, it is short and a completely different texture, so easy to brush and never been near a Groomers in his nearly 13 years so there are some advantages to a dog with a shorter coat.
We've trimmed Charlie on the lower sides and hips and back but have left the back and sides alone to see if they start growing. Now he looks a little more even. If I can figure out how to post pictures from my phone I'll do so. I've not figured that out yet.
