Hi guys!! This has been a very exciting last few weeks for those of us on Cavalier Talk and guess what?!?!?! I AM GETTING ANOTHER BABY!!! :jump: :jump:

Providing references and home check goes through she will be MINE MINE MINE!! :D :D

She's a B/T girl born 11/12 and rescued by a WONDERFUL member of this board!!

I couldn't be happier - I am absolutely tickled pink! She's just adorable. If you want to read more:

http://cavaliertalk.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6403

Now my problem:

What to name her?! She's currently called Faith which I think is a good name.. I also like the name Gracie because it's by the grace of God and the wonderful rescue folks that she's still alive.

Hooray hooray hooray!!! :jump: :mexwav: :lotsaluv:

Can you tell I'm excited??!!! Sara - this is so incredibly exciting. I've thinking about you tons the past couple of days. Can I uncross mine, Jake's and Shelby's fingers now....we were starting to get cramps.

I love the name Faith.....I had "faith" that if she was meant to be she would...and she is!

Okay, give us more. When would you get her? I'll be a reference for you ;)

I'm so pleased that you are getting her. They do say that a dog responds better to a name ending in the 'ee' sound, so Gracie fits, in more ways than one.

Normal hernias are no problem and many don't need intervention, though it mat as well be seen to with her spay. Izzy has had a hernia for over 9 years with no problems at all. In fact it has proved usefull, because it told me when his mvd was beginning to cause a fluid buildup in his abdomen. .

Yipeeeeeee!!

Oh Sara I'm so happy for you fingers crossed that all the checks etc go ok and she'll be on her way to you soon :xfngr:

Please let us know all the details when you know, oh I'm sooooo excited for you :jmp2:

Sara-- CONGRATS!!! That is SO awesome! She is such a cutie...and from my home state of Arkansas. My parents still live in Hot Springs, which I think is not too far from Mic (and Faith).

You know I'm partial to the name Gracie...just seems to fit these adorable Cavalier girls!

WTG Sara! Good luck with the final references and home check. Can't wait to hear an update :jump:

What wonderful news! Truly and international connection! I love the name Faith. Maybe you should wait until you meet her to decide. I bet the perfect name will come to you once you have her in your arms. Keep us posted on the adoption.
How are you going to get her? Fly, drive. . .?

Sara,

How exciting! :D Faith looks a bundle of joy ;)

arasara
15th January 2007, 05:30 PM
I could wait until I see her :):) It's always an option. Of course I will take LOTS of pictures and I'll keep you guys posted. I still need suggestions though!

I am planning to drive to the NY airport and then fly to AR from there and then fly back and drive home. The airport is about 3 hours from me. Yes - it's SOME international connection!! lol :) It will be fun though. ;)

I am so excited. I can't wait until I get the go ahead - I should be getting her sometime within the next 3 weeks I would say if everything goes well..

:xfngr: :xfngr:

Congratulations Sara. She is beautiful. You and Mic are wonderful to rescue this little one. Thanks for being the angels that you are. I look forward to getting to know your little girl through your stories and pictures.

I love the name Gracie!

It just goes so well with Kosmo! It just rolls off your tounge... Kosmo and Gracie!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Charleen
15th January 2007, 06:04 PM
Congratulations Sara! What wonderful news. I like both names, Faith and Grace. This will be very exciting for Kosmo - a little playmate.

Have you checked to see what the border rules are for bringing the puppy from the US to Canada? I know there can be a hassle sometimes.

If you need any help in your travels to pick up Faith please feel free to contact me. I work only about 1 mile from the Buffalo Niagara Airport. I am assuming you will be crossing the border near there or Niagara Falls. So if for any reason you need assistance, I'd love to help you get your little girl home.

arasara
15th January 2007, 06:13 PM
I checked into the government website and if she's under 12 weeks old she needs to have a certificate from a vet saying that as far as they know she's not unfit for travel into canada and she's not carrying any diseases and if she's over 12 weeks then she needs a valid rabies certificate as well as a vet certificate. ;)

I took that right from the government so I am assuming that it's spot on. I will bring along a copy just in case I get a mean crossing guard that hassles me.. icon_whistling

Thanks so much for offering Charleen - I can't believe that this is finally happening!! :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

How about other names besides Grace/Gracie and Faith? What do you guys think when you look at her? What's she look like??

Lindsay
15th January 2007, 06:29 PM
All she looks like is PRECIOUS! I have been pining for that puppy ever since the thread was posted! I am so glad that you are (hopefully) going to be her mommy!!!! :D :D :D :D :D

I think she looks like a Gracie. She is so teeny and cute. Gracie suits her so well.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! :mexwav:

Have you broke the news to Kosmo yet?

arasara
15th January 2007, 06:34 PM
I told KOsmo and he wagged his tail like he always does. . . . .

I think he will be thrilled!!... ... Until he finds out she's not going home!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lindsay
15th January 2007, 06:36 PM
Don't worry too much. Kosmo will always be your baby boy...she will probably rule the roost and be daddy's girl! Speaking from experience.... icon_whistling

Zippy
15th January 2007, 06:47 PM
Sara, That's terrific news!! :jmp2: :jmp2:

Faith is a beautiful little pup....she'll fit right in with your family and Kosmo!!

As for the name, I like tons of names....so I'm no help at all! ;D

Best wishes for your new furbaby!! :flwr: :flwr: :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

Woo hoo! Sara, that's amazing! b*n*n*
:mexwav:
I knew you were interested in getting a rescue eventually but I had no idea that it would be so soon. Congratulations!

Kosmo is so lucky to be getting a little sister. She looks sooooo sweet btw. Oh, you'll be having a cavvie GIRL this time!!! So much fun!!!

:xfngr: I'm sure everything will go well with final references. :flwr:

Kodee
15th January 2007, 07:09 PM
WOW this is really exciting! Kos will be lucky to have a little playmate. I often wonder due to the cavalier nature if they arent better in 2's. OH BOY you should see my husband freak when I mention sometimes they are suited to 2 to keep each other company.

This little girl is only a mth older than my lil one - we can compare dairies next mth. Hmm between you unable to leave Kos in "the window" and this lil gal I think you have the rescue bug... which is a darn, nice way to give back to society!

Keep us updated on it - a 3 way Cavalier Talk all star weekend now with rescue dogs and happy new board member owners!

:w**h**: Sara

We'll Sara awoke me this morning shortly after 6:00 am with the exciting news. :jmp2:

I am extremely happy for you sweetie, and that little one will be tearing your place apart in a short while. :w**h**:

I can't wait till we get all four of them together for playdates, tearing the place apart. :w*w:

You can all scream at me if you like but if she were mine her name would definetely be :shock: :shock:

SASSY

If she is as spunky as Mic says she is it would suit her to a tee, you have absolutely nothing to worry about with sweet Kosmo darling. :l*v:

He loved having the boys over to play, yes he was happy to see them leave. It will take him time to adjust, but he will soon come to realize she is not going anywhere. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I was keeping in touch with Sara all wkd, to hear if any news had come about as I had no internet access this wkd. She could not eat, she could not sleep, this gal was so excited. Can anyone blame her, I was jumping out of my chair Friday when she made the call to Mic. :jump:

Brough back alot of memories for me. :l*v:

Hugs, Hugs and more hugs darling. :hug: :l*v: :hug: :wggle: :thmbsup:

Don't tell me I have to start buying all this Pink stuff now. :yikes :yikes :yikes :yikes

15th January 2007, 08:03 PM
I love the name Gracie!

It just goes so well with Kosmo! It just rolls off your tounge... Kosmo and Gracie!

You know, she is right, when you say them together they do sound really nice!

Are you driving to avoid customs at the airport? I dont know much about taking animals across the boarder. Hopefully by driving its easier - they dont make you quarrantine or anything I hope? I'm sure the rescue people know all about proper papers, vet check papers etc.. to keep it safe - just be sure to cross your "i's" and dot your "t's" before you leave - so you know what is to be expected with the Niagara boarder into Canada.

Zippy
15th January 2007, 08:09 PM
People do take pets on vacation to the US....so I don't think quarantine is a problem.

My understanding, is that they need vaccinations and a vet certificate dated no later than 10 days before crossing the boarder.

I know there are problems taking dog foods across the boarder....not sure why but have heard of "snowbirds" having to throw it out at the boarder and buy it in the US.

If I took a dog *into* the US, I'd take the ownership papers too but that's not applicable to Sara. It's also just me, being extra careful.

Hope all goes well.....take your camera, Sara!! :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

My kids said she is too sweet to call her Sassy, I said just wait.
I remember that sweet darling face from my Darby too, I swore if I ever got another Ruby or B/T and it was a wee lassie that would be her name. ;) ;) ;)

I know that is your mom's JRT's name. :yikes :yikes :yikes :yikes

Oh Thank you guys for all of the well wishes!! :)

I am excited I can barely eat and sleep!! LOL I am like a little kid waiting for Christmas.. icon_whistling icon_whistling Oh I will never grow up!

I am not sure what we will call her - my OH is fine with whatever although he will make me name her and then probably say a week after the fact "oh no we should call her this.. :sl*p: " Men.!

Sassy is good Linda but how do you like trouble!? :yikes :yikes

I could name her "Hilda" like my grandma's dog's name! LOL she said she wanted to pick a name nobody would forget.. :badgrin:

oh my lord! congratulations! how exciting and wonderful for both of you!

sara i just looked at the photos of your little baby and she is SO adorable!

what a cute little pair her and kosmo will make. i've been admiring your avatar for so long----i just love the fact that he is *smiling* in it and it always makes me smile.

my vote is for gracie, but i agree that you have to wait until you see her to see if it fits.

Mic
15th January 2007, 11:32 PM
Well goodness gracious! I'm glad I logged in today. I guess Sara's a wee bit excited, y'think? She mentioned shipping some goodies for Faith here for her to bring back with her, and now I'm worried they may need to hook up a U-Haul to the plane!

As far as names go, I'd love to start calling her "HER" name to get her used to it, but a week or two won't make a difference. Everyone here calls her a different name. My daughter Riley and her friends call her Rhonda. Why? I don't know. Megan calls her Fay, which is Spanish for Faith. My husband is impressed by her bone structure and solid look and calls her "J-Lo" cause he thinks she has a big butt! Men! The girls at the knitting shop call her Purl, a knitting term/stitch.

Sassy fits her personality. She's a hoot. She won't "go" on the newspaper but loves to shred it instead. So I got some of those wee-wee pads and she won't "go" on them either. She does, however, like to sleep on them. Go figure. She wrestles with and barks at chewy toys, especially ones that roll. She flails herself against the ex-pen, growling and barking at it like she's some big shot. But put her next to my 90 pound lab/chessie mix and she rolls right over to bare her belly. The next thing you know, she's crawling all over Kahlua, tugging at her ears and chasing her tail.

She likes privacy when she does her business, which is fine during the day, but makes potty breaks in the dark more like Hide-and-Go-Seek. She's teething BIG TIME and her little teeth are razor sharp. She goes everywhere with me...sleeps in my purse occasionally poking her head out to cause a stir. She cute and she knows it. Quite a little ham-bone.

Hope some of this helps with the name selection.

Well, Mic, your description of Faith/Gracie/Rhonda/J-Lo/Purl sounds like a typical mischevious B/T! Reminds me so much of our Casey, the terrorist cavalier.

Sara, I am so excited for you! What a wonderful addition to your family. And Kosmo is going to love her. And she will rule the roost :lol: in no time! Wonderful news.

Hmmmmmmmmm Sara, I told you yes I know, I know, I know but she is gonna be a Sassy to me. :D :D :D :D

My son like I already said she is to sweet looking to call her that I told him I bet she is a cheeky wee lass. Sassy, Sassy, Sassy are you hearing me Sara or should I give you a ring. icon_whistling icon_whistling icon_whistling icon_whistling

I had plans for the evening (concert and knitting group) and left dh and the kids in charge of the dogs while I was gone. After giving them detailed instructions on when to walk which dog, for how long, where each likes to do his/her business, etc., I asked if they would take some new photos of Faith since I've had a few requests.

I knew something was up when I got home and everyone was in the kitchen, all smirking, with my computer on the counter just waiting for me. They wanted to show me the pictures of Faith they'd taken while I was out.

The five of them were literally rolling on the floor as they watched me open each pic. All I can say is my kids must take after their father, 'cause they sure don't take after me.

Hmm...mom's at a meeting. What can we do to amuse ourselves while she's gone?
Listen, pup. Just stick with me and you won't get into any trouble, okay?

Do you feel lucky? Rack 'em up, Pool Shark!

Time for my bath...but I don't wanna get my hair wet. You know how we girls are about our hair!

Oops...here comes mom. Look cute and act natural.
http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r135/bobnmict/IMGP0474.jpg

If Faith could talk, I'm sure she'd say, "HELP me, Sara! Get me outta this looney bin!"

From the looks of it your family is really fixin to have her for supper!! LOL the microwave, the stove, the fridge!! That makes my day. It reminds me of when my JRT was a puppy my brother put her in the china hutch and took pictures!! I will try to find it tonight and post a picture of it - I can't believe he put her in the china hutch!

She is so cute Mickey thanks for all of the picturs.. I am excited and love struck once again!! :flwr: :flwr:

Oh Sara....are you ready for this?! She's gonna steal your heart big time. Wait til Kosmo has a baby sister to romp with. How fun!!!

I am still trying to confirm which airport I want to fly out of.. icon_whistling I will be buying my tickets either tonight or tomorrow sometime. But the dates right now are pretty well set and it's between the 29th and 31st! :)

I told myself I would stop fooling around on this site last wk and get back to work and my online course till then. but your new puppy posts, Claire and Penny opps Minnie posts have just got me logging on to hear the news, share in your excitement and view the pics. Really, I have to stop this...

ah but the 27th is still a good day - its just a good day for you and Kosmo. Your new puppy and you will meet soon enough!

Where do you take the therapy dog training or did you do it on your own and then you go for testing. Hmm Perhaps I should have start a new thread for that question?

arasara
16th January 2007, 11:35 PM
yes a good day! :) I am excited for it.. Kody - you can train your dog on your own and then go for the test. ;) I have an extra special advantage because Kosmo's trainer just happens to be one of the testers for the therapy dog thing. If you are interested I can give you her email address and you can get the application from her. Your dog does have to be 1 year before doing the test though so you'll have to wait a while.. ;) I'm lucky ~ Kos turns 1 this saturday and the saturday after is his test.... Thank God it didn't work backwards.!

Ha not me! :yikes If you ever met me you'd know why, I am too excitable - I like to call it passionate about life- my husband has a few nasty words to describe it though :roll:

Thanks for the info, its just something I have always admired and wondered how people/dogs got involved with.

Who knows, my youngest has an odd connection with all/any animals. Maybe she will aspire to the task after participating in obedience classes this year.

Oh Sara!!!! You lucky girl!!! She is soooo adorable. One of the cutest little puppies ever. I think she will have to get into modelling for photo shoots- a very photogenic little girl. I think that Gracie Faith :D should have the browm mutt snuggle puppy :D . Best of luck with everything. Hope it all goes well and best of luck for you and the gorgeous little Kosmo for his test.

Cynders (like in Cinderella whose life was turned around)

Missy (because she is so tiny)

Natalie (just because she looks like a Natalie)

Gabriella (same reason)

Oh, I just love girlie names.

So, it's official!!

I'll be flying out of Toronto instead of NY. I was going to fly from NY and save the $100 but by the time I got back I would need a hotel.. so when you factor in gas, parking, and a hotel I might as well just fly from Toronto and be driven to and from the airport.. icon_whistling

I leave at 6:45 in the morning on the 30th (and I have to be to the airport 1 1/2 hours early for customs.. :yikes ) and I get home at 9:55PM that same night - oh Thank God I am flying out of Toronto. Depending on traffic (which I don't think there will be much) the airport is only about 45 minutes from my house. Plus with this time of the year you're never sure about the winter weather so it's better to be safe than sorry!!

I'll keep you all posted! :flwr:

Sassy (I know you are not calling her that but it is still my favourite)

Darcie

Misty

Ebony

Holly

Hailey

Kylea

Emma

Kara

Keke

Are you looking for a name that also starts with a "K" it might help she looks cheeky and solids are vey well known for being spunky so in all honesty my next favourite is

Keke then Kara then Kylea

18th January 2007, 02:51 PM
Linda ~

I really really like the name Ebony. It means a deep beautiful black. ;) I will see what Avi says - that one really catches my name. It would be nice to have a K name - maybe Kasey like someone suggested but that's also kind of a boy name! :yikes I might have to wait and see.. Ebony sounds good though.

Linda
18th January 2007, 03:01 PM

Sara - if you like Kasey, but think it is a boy's name, how about Cassie. That is almost the same and definitely a girl's name. And you can substitute a K for the C and have a K name. Kassie.

Here are a few other K names: Kerry, Kiley, Kaety, Kayley

Since you like Ebony, Here are other names for black: Coco (or Koko), Raven, Sable

Nope no name decisions yet there ladies!!

Thanks for posting those names, Mic.

It seems like every name I like my OH says "that's stupid" and every name I like he says "you're ridiculous." SOOO.. I think we're going to have to wait until we see her.. :lol: :lol:

Where did you find that website??

Sara, we almost got a little black puppy(rescue-mutt) before we decided to get Cavaliers. We were going to name him either Kieran or a girl, Kiera....below is the meaning we found. I have loved this name since that little pup stole my heart. I think Kieran could be male or female.

Kieran - Gaelic: little dark one', Saint Kieran

lol...too funny! To each his own on the naming, I guess! icon_whistling

Have you decided if you're definitely changing the name or waiting until you see her for that, too?

duncans_ma
28th January 2007, 08:25 PM
Sara,

I can't find the site where I oringinally found Kieran, but I remember that it said "little black warrior"....appropriate considering the fight little "faith" has had in her short life...

arasara
28th January 2007, 08:28 PM
Ashley that's a really cute name I'm going to mention it to my OH

I think that he's planning on waiting until we see her and her personality before we pick a name. I personally don't mind the name Faith - I think it suits her well.

I'll let you all know as soon as we decide though but seriously, thank you for all of the wonderful suggestions! :flwr:
