Anyone have any personal experience with them? I have Papillons, and Cavaliers are so similar I am drawn to them too. I would LOVE to have a Cavalier one day, but.. all the health problems keep me away.. Though, I don't want to forget about owning a Cavalier all together. (And, yes the dog shows this past weekend made me love them even more. ) So, I am wondering which breeders and lines have healthier dogs, that have history of living long lives. Any specific guidelines when picking a suitable Cavalier breeder? Also, what is the oldest Cavalier on record, and which line did it come from? Info on required health testing? Info on the major health problems? Also, another question for Cavaliers, is it better to have an outcrossed pedigree? Where there are two lines that aren't related are bred together. Or is it better to linebreed on a healthy dog? Any info would be greatly appreciated. ^^ Thanks!
