Without Arnold, the Humans are nothing
Arnold is a dog of course. But not any dog. He is a Cavachon. Originally from USA, the Cavachon is a cross between a King Charles Cavalier and a Bichon Frise. Clever and easy to train, the Cavachon is a friendly and inquisitive breed.
Arnold is the perfect kind of Cavachon. He is three (nearly six, he says) years old and loves people a lot. Dogs worry him a little and so he tends to bark at them until they have exchanged news (and sniffs). He has big Cavalier ears which are ideal for listening and a big Bichon heart for understanding. He has many interests: long walks, chasing and catching a ball, sniffing out the occasional cat but mainly he loves cuddling on a human lap to enjoy big strokes and cuddles. Recently, he has spent time in a school with his human Mum and this gave him the idea that perhaps he could do his GCSEs but he decided that a vocational route would be better for him and so he has recently completed a PAT (Pets As Therapy) assessment. He passed with flying colours. But he isn’t able to fly. Yet.
