I'm Phyllis.

I think the National Geographic TV show 'the Dog Whisperer' is responsible for my discovery of my adorable little puppy. Actually, I always wanted Spot from the Dick and Jane books I learned to read with when I was young. And I think Spot was a Cavalier. So I took a test online and this breed came up.

And who can resist those eyes. So we are learning together.

She seems to have the potty down pat,that is, as long as she's not alone when it's dark in the morning--or--there happens to be raccoons in the yard.

Now she's chewing, we have a flexible screen door and a totally fenced in backyard, and a houseful of leaves and mulch. It's so cute, and I love her to pieces. My two cats are still not sure, and my cocker is tolerating her.

Her name is Tinker, our cocker is Belle. Hubby's bit of cleverness there.
