View Full Version : A Message to Sara from Faith

30th January 2007, 02:10 AM
Hey Mom!
I can't wait to meet you tomorrow. I tried to bike to Canada myself, but I couldn't reach the pedals.


I'm glad you're coming soon because it's getting a little crowded here.



Are you SURE all of this stuff you sent me is going to fit in our suitcase?



PS I don't know what's the deal with my eyes in these pictures. Mickey obviously can't shoot a photo worth a lick. But she's gotten pretty good at cleaning up my messes...thanks to all the practice I've given her!

30th January 2007, 02:23 AM
oh Faith you're such a dollbaby!! I can't wait to grab you and hold you in my arms!! I am getting so excited - only about 12 more hours and you'll be in my arms for reals!! :) I can't wait sweetheart!!

Don't listen to what Mickey says your eyes are perfect in those pictures. :) You made my whole night with those.

Thanks so much Mickey and I look forward to meeting you tomorrow!! :flwr: :flwr: :flwr:

OK--ya'll are getting ME all excited! Faith is such a cutie! I know someone who's not going to be able to sleep tonight... Try counting sheep or Cavs, Sara. She'll be in your arms before you know it!!

Have fun! :flwr:

30th January 2007, 02:31 AM
I can't stand it! Hurry up and get that baby home!!! Good luck, Sara, we will all be thinking of you during your travels to pick up your precious cargo. Be safe.

30th January 2007, 02:33 AM
YAAAAYYY!!!! I am so excited for you both!!!! Zoey sends her love!!! I wish I could be there for your meeting, it is going to be soooo amazing to hold her for the first time!! Good luck good luck!!!! :luv:

Oh my gosh....I am so excited!! Mickey your pictures, as always, are hilarious! Yes, I spot a sit stay label, an amazon.com label and a tiabellas label!! :D

30th January 2007, 02:41 AM
I cannot tell a lie...the amazon box is mine, not Sara's. But since the box that the carrier came in was all smushed, I swapped the two. Same difference, right?

30th January 2007, 02:54 AM
Oh Dear Lord Sara

Are you sure you ordered enough stuff, how are you ever gonna manage to carry Faith and bring all those goodies home with you. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

She is absolutely precious, :l*v: :hug: :l*v: I am so excited for you and I know you are anxious and although you should already be in your bed, I see you are logged on here. :dogwlk:

Get to your bed or you are gonna miss your flight, your home will be filled with such excitement tommorow night. :w**h**:

Kosmo, Darlin not to worry you will get used to your darlin little sister. :hug:

Mic you are doing a amazing job with her she looks absolutely wonderful. :thmbsup:

Will be thinking of you Sara, have a safe flight. :lotsaluv:
Oh yeah Sara and you thing all those goodies are gonna fit in a backpack. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
Luv Ya
Linda, Dudley & Darby.

Have a good trip Sara! We can hardly wait to hear all about it! :)

30th January 2007, 02:59 AM
Travel safely and post LOTS of pictures ASAP!!!!! :) Soooo exciting...

30th January 2007, 03:50 AM
We know Kosmo will be a perfectly behaved brother - he is the master of dog therapy. BUT if they were to rough house play, that sweet little face of Faith tells me, that girl can stand her own! She looks mighty fiesty and ready to PLAY!

Mic, those pictures are special. It's apparent Faith has been in the most loving hands. Sara I'm so happy for you. She is of course, gorgeous.

30th January 2007, 01:50 PM
Those pics are so great! When will Sara be back home with her?

30th January 2007, 02:22 PM
When will Sara be back home with her?

Sara's flight is not coming in until tonight around 10:30 or 11:00 b*n*n*

She is about 45 minutes to 1 hour from the airport, at that time of night she is once again avoiding traffic. :drivecar:

So I would imagine she really won't get home until after midnight, let's all keep our fingers :xfngr: that Canada Customs leaver her alone. :xfngr: :xfngr:

You know they like to get their hands into everything, it just depends on who she gets at the airport. icon_nwunsure

Sara darling just give them that beautiful smile of yours and once they have one look at Faith they will melt. :l*v:

30th January 2007, 02:27 PM
I'll bet she gets home later than that - they'll all want to cuddle Faith :lol:

Sara! Just how much money have you spent on that new baby? :shock: :lol:

30th January 2007, 02:59 PM

Faith will sleep through most of this, but poor sara is going to be exhausted! Between excitement and travel she will need a wk vacation to recoop! But something tells me she would do it again, and again, and again...

Mic, you can tell from all the pics, that you and your children are the PRO puppy socialization experts. Whoot, lets all send our puppies to you!! :flwr:

30th January 2007, 03:02 PM
How much? Well, I have all of her invoices, :yikes but my lips are sealed! Everything was either on sale or shipped free, though.

Sara arrives in Arkansas at 10:50. I've rechecked her tickets 100 times 'cause I don't want a repeat of the Robyn/Logan fiasco. I know what she looks like, and she knows that to look for whoever's holding Faith. I don't think we'll miss each other in our little one-terminal-with-twelve-gates airport. We're stopping by PetSmart and PetCo on the way home...surprise, surprise! Then she can chill and bond with Faith at my place for a bit over lunch. We'll swing by and pick up my youngest from school on the way back to the airport for Sara's 4:20 return flight.

Nice paced day, imo...not too rushed, but not enough time to need a nap!! I'll keep you posted.

30th January 2007, 03:39 PM
8 more minutes until your flight lands!!! Your ears are probably popping right this minute from the descent of the plane!!!!! YAAAAAY!!! I am soooo excited!!! :D :D :D

30th January 2007, 03:45 PM
:updte: I just received a :blabla: from Sara about 1/2 an hour ago she was in Tennessee and had about a hour delay. :wggle:

She was starving, and just going to grab a bite to eat. :jmp2:

She didn't want to wander to far from her connecting flight.
She is extremely excited. :jmp:

Canada Customs Buggers took her honey away, you would think whe was going over to the US to poison everybody. :(

Honey, Oh don't get me started with those customs people. :bang:

She should be just getting on board to get to you now Mic, make sure you take lotsa pictures.
I know that she is just on Cloud Nine about coming for Faith. *ng*l
Faith you are one lucky little gal. :w**h**:

30th January 2007, 03:48 PM
Oh that would just drive me crazy about the delay!!!! I think I would have a panick attack! Leave it to customs.... :x

30th January 2007, 05:08 PM
:updte: :updte: :updte:

Yipeeeeeeeeeeee, Sara is in Arkansa and she just saw Mic coming along in her Sporty Red Bug.

So they should be at Mic's soon. :flwr: :flwr: :flwr: :mexwav:

Of course after their shopping spree. :jmp2:

Either Sara will try and post later if she can herself or Mic,
if not I will give you some more details when I hear from her again. :thmbsup:

30th January 2007, 06:48 PM
:lol: :lol: :lol: Those pics are GREAT !!!!! I loved seeing my box with the TiaBellas sticker on it :lol: :lol: :lol: Faith is in her mamas arms now ! Yippeeeeee !

Lol.. ditto to that... my butt has been infront of the screen all day! :cffee:

30th January 2007, 07:58 PM
i cannot wait to see the pic's so help that she made it safely to collect faith :flwr:

30th January 2007, 08:01 PM
Well, she made it! AND she's decided she's gonna bring Faith home with her...ha-ha-hahaha! Like that was ever a question!! Faith's paws haven't hit the ground since Sara's arrival. I think she likes her. :p

Sara brought a bunch of goodies for my three dogs and ME, too! Everyone's enjoying their new stuff. Sara gave me a huge blanket with Cavaliers on it. Very cool...well, warm, actually. I can never find anything "off the shelf" with Cavaliers on it.

Well, I gotta go and help Sara load up all of her puppy goodies. I hope everything fits!

30th January 2007, 08:21 PM
Aaaaaaaaah Mic your a funny lass, I bet she is bringing her home.

I have that same blanket and it is super warm for snuggling with the puppies.

I take it she will be leaving again soon, to return home to CANADA with her. I can't wait to meet her, I am sure you are gonna have to give her a hand with all that stuff she ordered.

Faith is one spoiled little girl already.

Sara soak up those puppy kisses, how you forget how small they are.
I bet your are just luvin every single second of it. :D :D :D :D :D

30th January 2007, 09:50 PM
Great to hear the update thanks Sara for letting Linda know and thank you Linda and Mic for keeping us updated too!!

I've been doing some work tonight that I didnt manage to get done in the day and was dying to get it finished so I could get on here to find out the latest!!

Not sure I'll be able to stay up all night to wait for you to get home Sara, but rest assured the first thing I'll do when I get to work at 8am is log on to see if you've posted :D

Hope you have a safe and hassle free trip back to Canada, thinking of you :flwr:

30th January 2007, 10:01 PM
:updte: :updte:

The phone just rang, guess who.???????

Yep, Sara she is just getting ready to board her flight from Arkansas to Tennessee. :w*w:

She has a small lay over in Tennessee, so I may hear from her again. :blabla: I hope. :xfngr:

She is so happy, and said that little bundle she went to collect is just absolutely precious. :wggle:

She is getting smothered in Puppy Kisses, lucky gal. :lotsaluv: :hug: :lotsaluv:

She is not arriving in Toronto until 11:00 p.m. so it will definetely be around 12:30 or 1:00 a.m. before she gets home. :slp:

I told her to post or call me to let me know that she is home safe.

Sounds like everything is going great, Mickey you are the best. :thmbsup:
Thanks for letting all this happen for Sara, I know how much she will love Faith and care for her. :l*v:

30th January 2007, 11:54 PM
Wow! This is such an exciting thread! Thanks for keeping us up-to-date, Linda!

Sounds like Sara had a wonderful trip to get her new baby. Great job Mic and Sara!
I'm sure she is so happy to finally be with Faith.
Looking forward to pictures!

31st January 2007, 12:04 AM
Linda and Mic, thanks for the play-by-play. I really missed all the details today. I was too busy working to logon to Cavalier Talk today. I can't wait to hear about the next part of Sara and Faith's journey.

31st January 2007, 12:37 AM
If I had never had a cav and read this board, I would not understand.
But now I do! I'm already dreaming of another one! A long way off of course. I shall enjoy my Maddy as much as I can.
I am excited for you!

31st January 2007, 01:47 AM
:w**h**: :w**h**: :w**h**: Can't wait to hear what Kosmo thinks of all this!!!! :)

31st January 2007, 02:17 AM
Sara called during her layover in Memphis. She had a question about Faith. Apparently she can't get Faith to pee or poop.
I told her that I couldn't help her.

Faith CERTAINLY didn't have that problem at my house 'cause she peed and pooped everywhere.

31st January 2007, 02:49 AM
OMG, I can't believe I missed all this!!

SARA!! Congratulations on your new baby. I'm SOOOO excited for you!! :rah:

And that is SO cool that she's a rescue from a member of this community. Now we can all watch her grow up together 8)

Can't wait to see pics of her, and Kosmo together, he's going to be the BEST big brother! She looks and sounds like a little pistol, I'm sure she'll keep him on his toes :lol: And she's sooooo beautiful :luv:

Now I'm all excited and can't wait to hear from you! Glad you decided to fly in/out of Toronto. The weather isn't bad so you shouldn't have any delays flying in. You'll probably be exhausted by the time you get home, but if you get a chance to pop on for a minute let us know you got home safely! I'll probably still be up, my daughter is at the Pink/Justin Timberlake concert at the Air Canada Centre, so I'll be waiting up for her father to bring her home... *yawns*

Wow, I'm just so excited for you!!! We should definitely hook up one of these days and get all the pups together for a play date. We're so close!

Safe landing!! :hug:

31st January 2007, 03:14 AM
Oh Sara!!!! I am so sad that I have to go to sleep before I get to see pictures, but the past few nights with Zoey have been absolute HELL!!! I am sure you won't have those problems with Faith... icon_whistling Not if you're lucky!!!! Give kisses to that sweet baby for me!! I hope you arrive safely!!! Don't worry, if she poops on the plane, then you can always blame it on the person sitting next to you!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

31st January 2007, 03:18 AM
Mic.....not uncommon at all . Its the stress ( even if its a happy stress) and excitement of it all . Just tell Sara to keep her hydrated , make sure she drinks and eats ( if she wont eat ....sometimes that happenes too ........tel her to give some nutrical ) and she will be fine when she calms down .

31st January 2007, 03:46 AM
It's just after 9:30 and Sara just called. She's in Canada and all went well. Faith was a champ during both flights and the lay over. Sara flirted with the customs dude and she got all taxes, fees, duties, whatevers waived...on Faith and the millions of toys, bones, leashes, harnesses, bowls, sweaters, jackets, clippers, teeth care products, kongs, etc.

It really wasn't a bad flight - 5 hours including lay over. Not bad 't all!

Kosmo is very excited, apparently. He came to the airport to pick up Sara and is VERY interested in Faith. Faith's not phased at all since she's been living with my 3 dogs for the past 3 weeks. I know they'll get on fabulously!


31st January 2007, 03:51 AM
Glad everyone arrived home safely!

Bet that camera is clicking like crazy right now! :lol:

Mic, I loved your photos, they were terrific! ;D :flwr:

I can't wait to see pics!!!!

31st January 2007, 05:17 AM
I'm home I'm home!

alright guys it's 1/4 after 12 and I AM DEAD EXHAUSTED!

OK, Mic you got me - faith PEED on the carpet!! :yikes :yikes :yikes I said AHH AHH mid stream as it was running down lets just say I had to change my clothes. icon_whistling

She's in her brother's big crate now I told her it was time to settle down. We are all just exhausted!

I'll post you guys the story tomorrow - I gotta get some shut eye!

This is the very first time I laid eyes on her (yes Mic wouldn't let me see her until she had the camera! :yikes )


And this is her sleeping belly up in her flight carrier - doesn't look like she minds it too much does she?!


I love her - she's perfect. ;) But we're going to have to hit this potty training thing hard as she just went about 5 minutes before she went in the house.. Oh well at least I got a poop outside. I think I may buy an extendable x-pen and put it across the kitchen.

Oh dear, I'm rambling.. I gotta get off to bed - :wggle:

a poop outside is excellent! off to a great start. a pee inside by a puppy that age is routine, ho hum, but a poo outside! that dog is a genius! :lol:
just keep up your magic touch (and hard work) and watch her learn and grow.

wonderful photos, she is SUCH a doll baby, and i love that one of you, you look like a little kid on christmas morning, only better. :D

bon voyage :flwr: (and hurry up and get some rest, we need more photos)

31st January 2007, 08:08 AM

Sara, she's wonderful :flwr: I love, love, love that pic of her upside down :lotsaluv: Hope her and Kos settle down well together and don't give you too many grey hairs :lol:

31st January 2007, 01:01 PM
So glad the trip went well and you and little Faith are home safe and sound. She is so cute. I love her sleeping picture.

31st January 2007, 01:03 PM
YAY Sara! I am so glad you made it home safely and that all went well!!!

For some reason I can't see the pictures!! Why is it that I can never see your avatar either?! It only seems like I can see it when you are online :x I want to see little Faith!!!! :( :( :(

31st January 2007, 02:19 PM
Oh my, she's precious! :luv:

Ok, now I want a B&T puppy! :lol:

I'm so happy for you! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip, and Faith!!

31st January 2007, 03:03 PM
I think I may buy an extendable x-pen and put it across the kitchen.
First oh my she is cute - like you dont know! You must be so tired! I cant imagine the extra excitement of having to fly out/back on top of just new puppy excitement - I mean I was wiped, but you must be wiped x10!

Kodee got constipated the first day too from all the excitement to the point the second day she didnt go and yelped as she tried. Not to fear all was good by 3rd day - I just encouraged her to drink more.

If your looking for a steady but inexpensive one, go to Petcetera on hwy 2 in ajax chapters mall - mine was $49 - I got the 24" one. I havent used it open but it works great in a zig-zag set up across a long opening to my den. My spoiled little girl has the run of the kitchen. Now that she is more than settled I know I have broke the cardinal rule - good luck to me getting her to actually go in an expen now - trust me I knew better :sl*p:

sleep, sleep, sleep, take pictures, sleep, sleep, take more pictures - ok you can feed kos and faith in that routine too :flwr:

31st January 2007, 03:32 PM
Gorgeous girl!! She looks pretty comfy in that carrier. Did she wink at the customs agent, too? Between the two of you--he didn't have a chance!

Welcome home and happy potty training! She'll catch on quick!

31st January 2007, 03:42 PM
YAY!!! I can see them now!!!! She is just getting prettier every day!! I can't wait to see more pictures!!!! :D :D :D

31st January 2007, 04:04 PM
Are you awake yet Sara? We need e pictures of Faith & Kosmo together. :snap: :jump:

31st January 2007, 04:23 PM
Yay.....our girl is home. Oh yes...she's our girl because we've all taken such an interest in her. She looks quite comfy in her little bag. What does Kosmo think of her?
