If you remember Bob aka Bobby you have been following my blog a fair while. Back in 2011 I re-homed him after buying him in tas a pup to hopefully be a stud to our girls, but he was not overly interested in being a stud. So we looked to re-home him.
Angela came and saw him and took him in April 2011. She phoned me a few days ago to let me know he had passed away and ask if I know of anyone who might be wanting to re-home an older Cavalier or Cavalier cross. Unfortunately, I could not be of any help at this time, but it was lovely to hear what a wonderful life Bob had had with Angela and her husband Robin. Angela was happy to let me share the news of Bob's passing, sending me some photos of Bob as well.
So lovely to talk to once again, even though I had very sad news to impart about my darling fur baby Bobby. He was such a lovely dog, we loved him very much. Thank you for giving him such a brilliant start to his life. Your brilliant training stood him and us in such good stead throughout his life.
We spoke about the possibility of another older ( but not too old) dog if either yourself or any contacts may have one that may no longer be needed for breeding in the future. I don’t mind a mixed breed. We tend to be more spaniel people than poodle people, so Brittany mix would be fine. I don’t know if anyone else is breeding like you are ?
My husband and I are at home all day, as Rob is still working from home. We do have three grandchildren under the age of nine and one on the way, so any dog would need to be child friendly. We do look after them in a regular basis. The children have grown up around dogs and are very good with them.
I’ve been looking on Pets4homes, but have been very concerned to see some Cavaliers with strange shaped heads. Large foreheads, and small muzzles. Any tips you can pass on about buying from there?
My husband Robin is a birdwatcher and there is a picture of Bobby sitting next to his telescope while on a twitch. He send it out on his Twitter account as an RIP and got loads of comments back. If you are interested I could email the picture to you for your blog ?

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
