Acquired: Breeder (professional)
Posted September 6, 2014
In my youth I had King Charles cavs. I remember they were easy to handle, great to be around, the whole mess. Of course, they had their moments - food is an issue. Even think about going near them when they had food and you got growled at. But they were very affectionate.
Roll on a few years and we have Rosie, who looks like a cloud on legs, being a mix of breeds, and no matter what evil you get up to with her when she's eating, she thinks it's the best day ever.
She's a happy dog, very affectionate, and has the Cavalier appetite. The only problem I find with her is that training just doesn't seem to work. Now 16 months old, she knows she's doing bad but you can take her out for a walk at 11pm and by 2am she'll have weed not only in the corner of the room, but next to the training pads - which by all accounts she shouldn't need at this age.
However, I don't know if this is just a plumbing flaw of the mix or if she feels affected by the fact that we've just moved.
She's small and wees in places she shouldn't. Those two things are literally the only things I can say are cons. I'd definitely get another one of this breed.
