We are new to this forum and also to Cavaliers. What a delightful breed this is. You can't help but love them. Everyone just has to say hello and pet and snuggle our Jenny, who is almost 1 year now. It's really sad for me to think about all the potential health issues that this breed has. It just doesn't seem right that these nice little dogs carry these big health burdens. We will love and care for Jenny as best we can. We probably would not have gotten her if we had done our research better. As least now we can be better prepared mentally for the future we hope will never happen. Still forewarned is forearmed. We'll try not to be focused on the health issues and just take it one day at a time. Are there others who have similar feelings?
