This past week has been very stressful for me. I’ve had several late nights spent worrying about a special black and tan princess. Add a little red dog wanting to go out on middle of the night excursions and you have the recipe for a *very* over tired owner!

Princess Molly, home from MRI

Molly recently turned 2.5 years old. For Cavalier breeders who choose to have MRI scans done on their dogs it is a milestone number. It represents the age in which an MRI scan should be completed prior to breeding. Most severe cases of SM show up prior to 2.5 years old.

Yesterday was that day for our girl.

Still a little woozy

I would once again like to say thank you to Matheson Blvd. Veterinary Services for what they do for our Cavaliers in Ontario. Yesterday 11 breeding dogs were MRI’d at MBVS. Without Jane Sykes and her team’s compassion and expertise, MRI’s for Cavaliers in Ontario would not be affordable for breeders, nor performed as often as what they are. We are so fortunate to have them.

Molly sailed through her MRI with flying colours. This is always the biggest concern and risk for Cavalier breeders performing MRI’s. The dogs must undergo a general anesthesia which is both invasive and does not come without risk.

You’ve starved me all day, can I have a cookie yet?

Seriously? Not yet? What do you mean I’ll throw up!

Only a pink bandage is suitable for a princess

Not only did she recover easily from her procedure she also had a beautiful clear scan.

I’m so happy and thrilled with this special girl. Thank you especially to her breeder Karen Murray (Mysticmoon Cavaliers) for sharing this healthy princess with us. I am excited for what the future will bring…
