This is our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel "Lucky". Last year we went to Amarula Dorper Stud's ram sale in Northern NSW. On the way back to Inverell on dusk we saw a small dog walking along the centre line of the highway. We stopped the truck and called him to us - just as a huge truck roared past. Fortunately he came, and we put this small dirty package of skin and bone on the back of the truck and took him with us. When we got to Martin's son at Inverell we discoved he was covered in thousands of fleas, so thin all his bones were sticking out and was sore everywhere.
The next morning after having fed and cleaned him up we went to the local council to see the dog ordinance people,( to check if he was microchipped). We were concerned that he was a child's lost pet, as it is an unlikely breed to be abandoned. He was microchipped but only traceable to the breeder, who had no idea who had purchased him or might have lost him. So the pound man said "if you want him, take him as he has been so neglected". So we did, we just happened to have a vacancy at the farm for a house pet and we called him "Lucky".
