I have received a lovely update for Lucy who is nearly 10 years old. We re-homed Lucy nearly four years ago. We got her as an adult dog, as someone was advertising her to re-home. She settled right in with us and produced two lovely litters of Cavapoos easily and just as we started to do her health tests to breed her third and last litter, Judith and Tony contacted us about having a puppy from her. They visited us and meet Lucy and Reggie, but Lucy on having her annual heart examination over 5 years old by a cardiologist vet was heard to have a heart murmur. I contacted Judith and Tony to tell them we would not breed from her again and what snowballed from that was they would be very interested in having Lucy. They had Cavaliers before and understood the heart issues. My main reason for re-homing Lucy was that she had spent the early part of her life not living in a pack and although she fitted in well, I thought she would probably be better suited to living out her adult into old age life in a home with less dogs. So nearly four years ago Lucy started her life with Judith and Tony.
"Hi Jane and family
I hope everyone is well and enjoying this wonderful sunshine.
Lucy had a trip out in the car with me (Judith) and my daughter yesterday and here are a few photos of Lucy to keep you up to date. She is doing fine and has had her usual annual check up, injections etc. and her heart murmur has got no worse. We love her to bits and so does everyone else who meets her. She still loves her toys and does her usual collection which we are not to touch unless she wants a game of tug o' war! She is so funny at times.
Judith and Tony"
"Hello Judith and Tony,
we are all well thanks and trying to make as much use of the sunshine.
Really good to hear that she is so well at nearly 10 years and and that the murmur has not got any worse over the last four years. She looks really good in the photos, and looks like you are keeping her pretty trim, as keeping the weight off is a big factor in helping them keep in good health.
Really good to hear from you both, and hope that your family are all well.
Love from us all
