  1. Old dog drinking

    Yes that may be a possibility as to why. Thanks. She does get sore and is on meds for arthritis. The bowls we have are fairly narrow and have kept Spaniel ears out for years. She wears a snood for dinner but she wouldn’t keep it on all day. I’ll see if I can find something to sit the bowls on and see if that helps
  2. Old dog drinking

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Our old Cavalier, Lacey, always drinks with one ear dipped in water. She used to do it occasionally but she’s always dripping water through the house now and the others don’t like drinking out of the bowl after it’s been dunked in. We haven’t changed bowls. I’ve no idea why? Any thoughts please? I guess I could clip her ears off but she’s so pretty. It’s not a major hassle. Just need to clean bowls frequently and mop the floors. I’m just curious as to why. Thanks

    I’m sure she’d love a friend Jemappelle! Thanks Poochmad.
  4. The Ckcs Photo And Chat Thread

    Didn’t happen if there’s no photo! Since I last posted we have lost Bree. Her heart was worn out Lacey is 14 and still chugging along. She tried to catch a bird this morning! Still plenty of spirit.
  5. I know of a standard poodle who really wanted to kill the family’s cats. He was serious! Cavaliers moult constantly and furminators damage their coat. I wouldn’t recommend using one on them. If hair about is a major worry a Cavalier is not the dog for you! I’ve had them for many years and they are wonderful dogs. They are friendly and many are very amenable to training.
  6. Introducing.... Bolt!

    Beautiful baby!
  7. Which out of the 2 please

    Please find a reputable breeder who health tests their breeding dogs and raises their puppies well This pup will be with you a long time so it’s important to choose carefully. And having support from a breeder is great.

    Such a lovely bunch of puppies Not much happening around here. Our two oldies aren’t doing so well these days. Sad to see them aging. But mostly they are happy and enjoying life. Lots of drugs!
  9. Home made dog food

    I’m on a Facebook group you may find helpful. Raw fed healthy Cavs.
  10. Nupentin (gabepentin)

    My two older Cavs are both on gabapentin. They both have neck pain and one has arthritis too. I’ve not noticed a lot of difference to be honest. The arthritic girl was really struggling last night.
  11. I have a Finnish Lapphund too. Love her but she is vocal! A friend has a cross Japanese Spitz and Shetland Sheepdog. He is even more vocal
  12. Gilly is 21 today!!!!!!

    Happy birthday! We need a 21st birthday photo please!
  13. Kidney failure

    Thanks CR. I’m lucky that I still have her daughter with me Not sure I can suggest anything to prolong life except that I was very strict with her diet until very very close to the end when she got some treats she’d been missing out on. And be sure to always have lots of water available day and night cause they really do need to drink a lot. I also gave Ingrid cranberry as it’s supposed to be good for kidneys. I hope your friend is with you a good long while yet!

    Sorry PM I hope the vet can help.
  15. Recommendations please

    Cavaliers are a breed that loves to be with you. Are you after a dog who will be inside as well as out? Wherever I am that’s where my girls are. They love outside as long as I’m out there lol
