Today I have double rescue joy! Let me introduce you to Fleur and Roos, 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels owned by my best friends Jeroen and Nienke.
Fleur is 9 years old and was adopted 5 years ago. One day when Nienke was groceries shopping, Jeroen gave her a call to ask if she could also bring some dog food and a dog bed. He had been surfing the internet and found a dog available for adoption, not far from their house. That same day they went to have a look and there was Fleur. Her previous owner wasn’t able to look after het anymore for health reasons. They were very sad to put her up for adoption, but they didn’t have another choice. Fleur was adorable and of course they took her home. When they got home they took her for a nice walk and she seemed to be all fine with it. She is very calm and affectionate. They both love to have her company since!
After a year they saw another Cavalier on the internet who was available for adoption. It was a bit further from their house, but they decided to have a look anyway. Roos lived with people who rescued abused and neglected dogs. The amount of dogs was a bit much at that moment and so they were looking for forever home for Roos. She was very sweet and friendly and so yes.. they took her home too! When they came home, meeting Fleur went really well and they are inseparable ever since. Friends for life.. real BFF’s! She just turned 9 in March, but looks much younger with her big puppy eyes.
They both have very different characters, but that is what’s making it so fun to have them, says Nienke. Fleur is the most cheeky as she regularly takes a walk by herself. Luckily she always came home safely so far. And Roos.. well.. she isn’t that clever, haha! She needs a bit of extra support now and then. Though she is full of enthusiasm and always comes running to you being all happy.
They both love to run around in the forrest near their house, to go for long refreshing walks on the Dutch dikes near the sea, sleeping with the cat(all 3 in 1 dog bed.. they make sure it fits, haha!), playing with the chickens and their mini pig.
They are also very child friendly and that is a good thing as their almost 1 year old daughter is totally in love with them!
Now and then they have a trim, bath and blow dry and they are ok with that, but the most fun part is to roll in a nice fresh towel afterwards. A joy to watch! They definitely bring a lot of happiness and it’s so nice to hear that both of them are living such a nice life full of attention and love!
