Hello from Texas! I've been lurking on Cavalier Talk for weeks now and finally decided to give in and join the group. I recently received the joy of my life, a blenheim boy named Kingston. When his breeder sent me pictures and told me about his sweet personality, I jumped in my car and drove FOUR hours to pick him up.
He's just over 4 months old now and a bundle of energy. I've never met a more loyal and loving dog. Sometimes I can't find him, go around the house looking for him, and then realize he's right under my feet!
When Kingston needs a bath, I put on a bathing suit and hop in with him (it's much easier)! The only problem is now he thinks he's supposed to be in the bath with me ALL the time. Good thing I have a garden tub and he's too short to jump in.
My whole family thinks I've lost my mind. My sister asked me to drive three hours to visit her this weekend and I said, "I can't, Kingston has his first day of obedience school." You should have heard her response. After out first trip to Petsmart, I called my mother saying "Everywhere we go people want to hold him and pet him. Is that okay? Will he get sick? What if they drop him?" She said, "Honey, you HAVE to calm down. Let him be a dog!"
Anyway, it's wonderful to have a website like this, and I'm so excited to meet other Cavalier owners who are as crazy about their dogs as me.
