The Meatless Monday Campaign, which is a national health effort aimed at preventing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and cancer, has become increasingly popular over the last few years.

It's no surprise that Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are currently one of the desirable breeds out there. Not only are they beautiful dogs with regal shiny coats and big beautiful eyes, they're as sweet as can be! Cavalier King Charles are generally affectionate dogs with friendly dispositions.

It was said, "His Majesty was seldom seen without his little dogs." We can see why! Check out some pics of these royal pups!
