Mum has been so busy with work and uni, we hardly get to see her anymore, and when we do, she's always so tired! Our walks have been cut back to twice a week (Mum can't walk all three of us at once, even with a leash divider, and Dad works nights, so there's only a couple of days available for us all to go for a walk together).
This has been Mum's schedule for the last month
Monday: Work 12pm-3pm & 6pm-11pm (we get a walk in the break!)
Tuesday: Uni 9.30am-12.30pm Group Study 1pm-3pm Work 4pm - 10pm (we don't see Mum all day!)
Wednesday: Uni 9.30am-6.30pm (Another day we don't get to see Mum! And she's always really tired afterwards cos she only gets four 15 minute breaks all day!)
Thursday: Uni 9.30am-12.30pm (this is the second day we get walked!)
Friday: Work 12pm-3pm & 6pm-12am (Or 3.30pm-12am)
Saturday: Work 6pm-12am
Sunday: Work 9.30am-5pm
Sometimes, if Mum isn't too tired, we get a third walk on Sunday evening. We hardly get to see her! But, when she's home, we all give her lots of attention, because we know that nothing makes humans feel better than lots of Cavalier hugs and kisses!
We know that we will get to go for another car ride soon though, because winter is coming and Lucky needs a good jacket. Monty and Pirate each have a Weatherbeeta jacket - they're rip proof, water proof, and stain proof. Weatherbeeta are a company that makes horse rugs, and they have a lifetime guarantee (as we are all boys, Mum thought that this was a really good idea!). Pirate and Monty's jackets also came with a free collar and leash last year, so Mum is hoping that the pet store will have the same deal again this year.
We know we are going for a car ride because the pet shop that Mum goes to is dog and kitty friendly! They don't sell pets, although they do have a notice board where people can put up their own ads, or other signs such as Missing posters. The manager there loves us! Last time we went in, he gave us a dried kangaroo tail each, and the time before that, he gave Mum a bag of dried chicken treats for us!
He told Mum that he had a cavalier when he was growing up, and even though he doesn't have one now, Fluppy (his cavalier) is the reason he opened a pet shop in the first place!
Sorry about the HUGE post! Mum has a couple of photos from when we went to the Estuary in January that she wants to put up, because she thinks that a post is worthless without photos!

|Monty - he doesn't really like the water|
|Pirate - he LOVES water!|
|Lucky & Pirate - if you look closely, Lucky is sticking his tongue out!|

Thanks for reading!
Puppy Love from Monty, Pirate, and Lucky!
