I'm a long-time Cavalier lover who is FINALLY having her dream come true, as we are picking up our Blenheim puppy next Saturday! I've done so much research and so much dreaming about this that it hardly seems real. I've enjoyed reading all your posts, and can now join in the conversations!
Her name will be Daisy, and she will be 10 weeks old when we get her. We looked long and hard for a breeder that follows the MVD protocol and had the type of puppy we were looking for. We feel like we've found her. We are spending about twice what we had hoped to, but we hope we are rewarded for spending that much by having a dog who is healthy for a long, long time. My husband about had a coronary over the price, but I finally had to just grit my teeth and stand my ground (I'm paying for her myself anyway, but he is very frugal and thinks I'm crazy for spending that much money.)
Just wanted to introduce myself and join in the fun. Wish us luck that she doesn't get carsick because we have an 8 1/2 hour drive home from the breeder's house!
