Hi Alison,

there, you are balancing it out :-) One of my 14 years olds is actually black and tan.... I just think it's lovely to know there are quite a few older Cavaliers out there in the big wide world!

Incidentally, yesterday I went into the dog room and Raziela; the 14 year old ruby; had climbed onto a chair and was trying to get the lid off the 30 kilo size container of kibble! It's one of those plastic lids you have to push down hard, and I have difficulty getting it off sometimes...... Her black and tan sister Rascally, despite her name, would never try to do anything so naughty As soon as she realised I was there, Zellie hopped off as if she'd been doing nothing at all!
