Greetings all,

Just wanted to introduce myself as a soon-to-be proud owner of my wife's and my 1st dog. We both grew up with dogs (me, English Springer Spaniels and my wife, a Shih-tzu) but this will be our first dog together. We live happily in Charlotte, N.C. and are anxiously waiting to pick up our 9 week old, Blenheim, male puppy (named "Oliver"--"Ollie" for short). We've done extensive research about the breed and feel that a CKCS will fit our lifestyle perfectly, while also compromising between an ESS and a Shih-tzu. We are driving to our old stomping grounds, Charleston, S.C., to pick up the little guy this weekend. Pictures of Ollie to come.

Thanks and happy to be here.
