I wanted to share my story in order to help others with their fur baby as well as seek advice/help for my fur baby. I was looking for a companion for my 6-year-old female CKCS and to possibly have puppies, as I am extremely fond of Cavaliers! I knew the puppy had an eye infection when I bought him.
