    Default New Puppy coming home Saturday, July 8! Newbie

    Hello, Everyone!

    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!

    Hi DeAnna. Welcome. How exciting for you. Daisy certainly is a pretty little girl. Hope the trip goes well. We will love to see pics of her once she is home.

    Oh Daisy is so cute!! So good that you did your research and didn't settle for less. Isn't it exciting that you've waited and waited and now it's going to happen??!!

    Hey, DeAnna. Welcome to the Board. We'll help you count down the days. I think most of us live vicariously through those that are bringing home new babies. Don't forget to post pictures as soon as you get Daisy settled. She is a doll!

    Thanks, everyone for your good wishes! I hope having a dog will be as great as I remember it being from my childhood. I had toy poodles growing up and loved them dearly. I"ve been waiting for many years for the "right" time to get a dog. My kids are almost 6 and 8, and I think they will be gentle with a dog, and my work is at a point where I can work from home a great deal now. Plus, I'm off this summer, so I can spend full time with her until school starts up again in the Fall.

    So, the stars seem to be all aligned to make this the perfect time to get a dog. I cannot wait! And seeing all your beautiful Cavaliers is just making me more impatient !!
