Hi all!

Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm in Ontario Canada, and we've just put a deposit on the most sweetest puppy ever. Her name is Bella and we bring her home this coming weekend - I'm so excited!

We drove to Niagara Falls yesterday and spent well over an hour at the breeder's home. When we pulled up we were greeted by the puppies' mom, dad, AND grandmother, who all live there (inside, with the breeder and the pups!). All 3 of them were spectacular, tails wagging, sweet, friendly, eager to greet. Mom and grandma are Blenheim, and dad is a gorgeous Tri-colour. The breeder is fantastic with her dogs, and the puppies are VERY well socialized... they snuggle right into your arms and lick your chin :luv:

I ended up leaving very torn... the little male tri-colour also stole my heart. He's a bit more 'spirited', LOL, but an absolute love. I tried talking my husband into letting me have two *pouts* But, I'm sure he won't last long!

This will be our first dog since the loss of our beloved English Bull Terrier, 4 years ago. The breeder tells me compared to my Bully, raising a CKCS will be a walk in the park, heh.

Anyway, it's been a few years since I've raised a pup and I'm a bit rusty, so I'm sure I'll be around asking lots of questions!

Bella already has her own webpage (click my signature image). The photos on there are from yesterday at the breeder's. I'll be adding lots more once we get her home!

Glad I found this site! :lol:

Bella is adorable. Tell her...It's a good thing her mommy and daddy are geeks...it just means they love her and aren't afraid to show it!!

Awwww, get both of them! They can keep each other company when you're away from home. I just bought my 1st Cav about three months ago, and I'd love to have another!

Congratulations! And welcome to the board! It's great to have another Canadian on board. I'm also from Ontario. I am new to cavaliers too as I just got my puppy 4 weeks ago! You must be so excited... She is adorable. I LOVE the webpage.
Enjoy Bella and the extra special Thanksgiving! :wggle:

What a beautiful little girl. I love that picture of the brother getting in on the act, some what reminds me of Darren's brother Mat who has to get in the picture... had some nice pictures of me and Darren ruined.

Your baby is only three days younger than mine- who comes home on Monday. The week seems so loooonnng in passing, and I'm on tenterhooks in case something horrible happens!
Morbid, innit? :yikes

Website is lovely and so is Bella. Blenheim spot and all :drool:

Certainly am. My kitchen presently resembles a vet's, with play pens and crates set up everywhere. I want my older cav to get used to the environmental changes before inflicting the puppy on her :lol: :lol: As I said elsewhere, I'm trying rather desperately to forget that anything important is happening on Monday on the principle that a watched kettle never boils. Plus, the breeder told me last night that although my pup's getting her final vaccs on Mon am, they're bringing her over in the evening so they can watch out for immediate nasty reactions. So I'm gonna jump every time the phone rings in case it's them.. :yikes

I love the website idea! My new year's resolution (academic new year's resolution, rather) is to learn HTML. Really gotta do it.. :D
