The problem with owning dogs is that, treated well, they give you unconditional love. You know that, barring some unforeseen happening, you are going to outlive them and suffer the pain of losing a creature to which you have given your heart. I have no doubt my old boss, QEII, will be feeling the pain of that loss.

My house has not been without a dog since 1968 and in that time five have passed through our lives and each has been mourned on its passing. Currently there are two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels in charge here and they hold our hearts. In fact they are curled up at my feet as I type this.

One of the things I loved about the UK on my visits was the way in which dogs were allowed access to places despite the protestations of the health freaks.

Hi AussieD we had a standard yorkie that my wife rescued!! from Epping forest when it jumped into her car.13 years later still going strong she took our two children to see a litter of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels a friends bitch had just had and I foolishly said emphatically not to come back with one. Sure enough six weeks later we had two. The Yorkie was seventeen when he had a heart attack and died the Caviliers lasted ten years and died within sixmonths of each other.We now have a big Mallinoire cross that hates men but loves kids and women I still cant figure out how my wife trained it.

G'day PW,

I had to look up Malinois/Mallinoire as a breed as I had never heard of them. A handsome looking dog but one I'd like to stay on the right side of. A lot more intimidating than a Cavalier.
