Hi Everyone .. I am new to this forum .. have been reading a lot of the posts and am amazed at the wealth of information here. I am a new Cavalier King Charles mom - Lola is 8 months old. But I am not a new dog owner and have had dogs all my life. Lola is my first Cavalier and I am in love! Such a little sweetheart. My English springer spaniel passed away in April at the age of 14 .. I wanted something a little smaller this time since I am alone at home and my kids are out of the house. I am so happy with my choice . I am thrilled to be here and looking forward to posting some questions as soon as I am allowed.
