Five years ago I
was on the Humane Society website when I found the most
Beautiful Cavalier King Charles little boy. His name is
Charlie, and he was about 7 months old then. A couple had
purchased him and then was unable to take care of him, so they
gave Charlie to the Humane Society.
I rushed down to inquire how to purchase and most of all meet
him. When they brought him into the room, Charlie walked
around in a circle, then jumped into my lap and wrapped his
arms around mine.It was Love at first sight. I was told that
there was a waiting list and they had to call from the list
first, and they would let me know the outcome the next
Morning.That Tuesday morning, I could not wait any longer so I
called The Humane Society and to my surprise I was told that
he was being bathed and tattoo for me to bring home that
afternoon. On January 28, 2002 was the beginning of our new
life. One year later we decided to purchase another King
Charles puppy for Charlie. My Charlie was starting to become a
couch potato. I was out shopping one day when I walked into
this Puppy store and fell in love with this little 5lb, 8
month old little Cavalier King Charles girl.
The day I was to bring her home
she had this terrible cough. The owners of the pet store told
me that she had a mild case of Kennel Cough, and to continue
giving her this medicine. I was told by the owner of the Puppy
store that Kennel cough is common and not to worry. The next
day I call the owner of the Pet store back to inform them that
little Noel was getting worse. I took her to the Vet they use
and I had to leave Noel there for the day. Noel needed to be
on a respirator and oxygen. Her lungs were so full of mucus.
Little Noel was a very sweet loving and Sassy girl. When she
was 2 years old she started developing blood clots in her
pulmonary artery. We were not aware of this until one night
she was having very difficult time breathing, we rushed her to
the animal hospital where she was kept alive in an oxygen bed.
My little Noel was suffocating to death. X-ray’s were taken
to find, that she had a large mass around her heart. She had
to stay there until morning when her vet opened. We ended up
rushing her from the after hour hospital to a local animal
hospital where she had to stay for twelve days.
