Embee Cavaliers - A Giveaway!

And no, I don't mean my girls...at least not today anyways.

Aren't they cute? Its not the best picture, but it is the best of the many I took trying to get that shot. It is so hard trying to get all four at once.

Back to the giveaway.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Canada's
(CKCSCC) health and education committee has put together a completely awesome and very practical, two-pocket folders.

We are selling these folders as a fundraising initiative. In my house this type of folder has been used for just about everything. Veterinary records, resume's, school projects, meeting minutes, they are just so handy to have around.

All proceeds from the sales of our folders go into the CKCSCC health and education committee's general health fund.

The CKCSCC health and education committee is responsible for many health initiatives in our breed including:
  • Ongoing Mitral Valve Disease research and diagnostics. Started in 1993, this initiative has provided many pet owners and breeders with expensive diagnostic testing, and researchers with important data regarding MVD.
  • Offering lower cost MRI's to breeders in partnership with Matheson Blvd. Veterinary Services to assist with the high costs associated with screening for chiari malformation, syringomyelia and PSOM.
  • Donating to CKCS research projects and initiatives worldwide.
  • Funding older cavaliers to be scanned for the genome project.
  • Organizing educational seminars for breeders of all types of dogs to attend, on topics such as reproduction and genetics.
Our folder and snood giveaway!

To show just how awesome these folders are, I am giving away folders to readers of this blog. In addition to the folder I will include a snood in your cavalier's favourite colour.

  2. Hi Gretchen,

    You do not have to be a resident of Canada to enter. That is the nice thing about snoods and folders, they are fairly light to ship! Thanks for asking though, I definitely didn't make that clear in my post so I have edited it.

  3. I would use this beautiful folder to keep all Rhetts records in and take on visits when he is therapy dog certified.

  4. First I have to tell you as soon as I saw all your girls together I thought, "Oooh I need a Cav in every color too!" LOL

    But the folder is great, and for a great cause! I wold use it at work to keep all my new class rosters in. It looks like I'm going to be co-training some next month and I'm putting together my training binder. I think a Cav folder would be just the thing to keep me organized!;)) Although I think if I put Magnus in a snood he may disown me and run away.LOL What fun! A great idea Marybeth!

  5. I would use the folders in my puppy packs that I give out to families when they purchase a puppy from me...Cindi Rackler...www.cruisincavaliers.com

  6. Oh my! They are adorable. Are you going to have some available at the picnic? I'd like to order 4 pretty pretty please! If I order in advance, then maybe they won't get sold out ahead of time *thinking about that nice picture you won I lost out on!* I'll also have money for you this weekend for the snoods I ordered last time I seen you. See you then! :)

    (ps I can't figure out how to fix my account so this will have to do!)

  7. I would love to have one to keep all my foster records in. I have a generic one from Walmart that is completely full!

  8. That's a great cause. Anything to help with the breeds' health issues is worth it.

    I would use the folder to keep Kendall's Delta Society paperwork and the new AKC Therapy dog paperwork in between visits.

  9. I would use the folder to support Cavaliers rather than Walmart. I would keep my NEW puppy's records in it.--Elin

  10. I would give it to my mum so she can keep her cavalier papers in it for her girl cassie and boy winston.

  11. I would use the folder to store all my Cavalier friends contact info :-)

  12. What an amazing cause :) you're snoods are just amazing.
    I would use the folder to keep my Izzie and George's records. I carry around their vet records, vaccination and agility records at each of our shows and it would be lovely to be able to do so in a very fashionable way :) !

  13. I love the folder! It is super cute! I would use it to keep all Fino's and Rouky's papers. They tend to get lost here... :-(
    I, too, just love your snoods. They are so beautiful!

  14. Hi im Chewy and miss kodi told me all about your contest. Can I still enter even though i am a shih tzu? that is a hard question to answer....I will use the folder to help momma keep track of my shot records.

    Excellent!

  15. Love the folder ~ SO regal and gorgeous! I would use it to hold Cleopatra's (Cleo) very important papers! She actually could use one of your adorable snoods, because her ears are always in the way when it's time to eat! (We usually give them a little twist and tuck gently under her collar 'til breakfast or dinner is over!)

    And, of course, LOVE supporting Cavalier health and education, as we lost our beloved Indiana Jones this past January to MVD. We miss him dearly, but his wonderful spirit lives on! ❤

  16. Well I already have four but I'll tell you what I use them for. We just went on a trip and I put our passports and the dogs vaccination records in it. I keep each dogs registration and health information in one - another I have for unfilled training sheets and course maps.

  17. The folder is very cute, I could use it for my documents, vet things & Co. Good Luck to all!

  18. I will have folders at the picnic! I will have your snoods too Sara.

  19. Chewy you are more than welcome to participate and I bet you will look great in a snood!

  20. IndyandCleo I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful Indiana. MVD claims entirely too many cavalier lives. I hope that the most recent research is as promising as it looks for MVD.

    Cleo definitely sounds like she could use one of our snoods!

  21. Adorable--since each of my cavaliers already has their own medical folder, I'd probably use it for all my reference material, ie. vaccination protocol, supplement info, etc. Then it would be more readily available when discussing different issues with the vet.

  22. Hello, Mylee, Molly, Zoey, and Sadie. My name is Sammy, and I am a cavalier king charles spaniel too! I was visiting my friends Kodee and Becky's blog and they had a link to your's, so here I am! I'm looking forward to reading about all of your adventures!

    My blog website is: www.kingofthecavaliers@blogspot.com

  23. I luv your 'girls' - they are so adorable.
    If I won a folder, I would use it for my loving companion 'Kirra', as her personal organiser, for vets, shopping, and the many photo's - she is worth it.

    You have a wonderful blog and delighted to view.
