After a long search and much research, we have a new addition to the family, a Ruby boy!

He's 19 months old, a retired show dog who was looking for a "forever" pet home. He's called Teddy Edward. {Edward is a family name from Trevor's side of the family}.

Teddy's breeder is wonderful, well aware of the health problems sadly affecting our Cavaliers, especially Syringomyelia. She is training to be a judge, and is very keen on conformation and movement - and it shows. If a dog is "built" properly, they are much less likely to have certain problems.

Teddy's movement is very elegant and it's beautiful to watch. He has the most wonderful temperament, very loving and affectionate. He's full of life and energy. He's already Daddy's boy - which is what we wanted, as one of the reasons for looking for a young, healthy dog was so that he could accompany Trevor on his walks.

Rupert and Peaches are both delighted with their new companion, and already the three of them cuddle up together.
