    Default Hi

    Thankyou for the chance to join and a big hello to everyone (quite a few I recognize) from all the gang in North Yorkshire.
    I have had Cavaliers since 1969 but gave up on the chance to breed when I realized I would keep all the puppies
    I dabbled in showing, but preferred to watch than participate!
    My fascination is for pedigrees and written memorabilia of Cavaliers. I have been collecting photographs, critiques, articles, Breed Record Supplements etc. for years and have had to give a bedroom over to it all for storage!! My pedigree database is running at 40,000+ dogs at present, and to think I started it all back in the 70's with a card index
    My family consist of hubby, five elderly Cavaliers all between 11yrs and 14yrs ( a couple who are rescues) a rescued Papillon and a Rottweiler who thinks he is a Cavalier and can't figure out why he doesn't fit on my knee.
    I look forward to joining in the chat.
    Best wishes to you all,
    Ruth

    Wow, what a great collection that must be. Sounds like your house is a good place for all of us to take our holidays...

    Hi Ruth lovely to see you here.

    I think most of us would jump at the chance of a week's holiday in your spare bedroom!! All that Cavalier memorabilia icon_banana

    Hope all the doglets are keeping well - we'd love to see some photos if you have time.

    Rupert and Princess Peaches send hugs to kisses to you all

    Hi Karlin and Nicki, lovely to be here. I will try and get some photos up if I can wake the gang up long enough!

    How are Rupert and Peaches doing these days Nicki ?

    Ahhh it would be great to see everybody - maybe wave some food about, that soon wakes mine up!! Hope all are as well as possible - I think you said Teddy was doing better?

    Thanks for asking about the doglets:

    Peaches is recovering well from her luxating patella surgery, Ruth - bouncing again! She is SO much happier, I'm really please we went through the op. We go back in Sept for a 6 month check, and may make a decision then about the other leg - this right one was the worst, and actually far worse than we expected.

    The bad news is that her murmur is getting worse - worse than a 2 now, and the vet would expect her to show clinical signs between 8 and 10 years old {she is 6 1/2} and would probably need medication then We are just enjoying everyday with her, and will keep her weight right down, and as fit as possible.

    Rupert is seizure-free most days icon_banana we are controlling him with an homoeopathic remedy made from his steroid {i only discovered recently that this could be done, if insufficient on its own, the remedy can be given alongside steroid treatment, and will help to prevent the side effects}

    He is reasonably pain free - seems happy and enjoying life, the biggest problem is his walking now, he's only managing about 1/2 to 3/4 mile daily. We have borrowed a cart for him and hope to get it set up and try it out.

    But he can still run a bit when he wants too, and potters about the garden quite happily - he just can't keep going for too long.
