If you were to look up lapdog in the dictionary, you’d probably see an illustration of a Cavalier
. This cheerful and loving dog wants nothing more than to be with you and will adapt his activity level to your own. Sit on the sofa all day and eat bonbons? He’s there. Be a rowdy playmate for the kids? He can do that after school. The Cavalier is a small breed that typically weighs 13 to 18 pounds, although many are larger and may be better suited to families with children.
