I am here in middle Iowa - awaiting a little baby girl, Abby. She is just 6 weeks old, so she won't come home with me for awhile yet, but I am really looking forward to that. I picked a CKCS because I had a hybrid of CKCS/Yorkie who recently died. Lilah was unlike any other dog I had ever had, or been around, so I thought her characteristics were probably more CKCS than Yorkie and I wanted some more of those in another dog. She is a blenheim and already beautiful in her young age. I am anxious to get acquainted with this site and it's members. Hoping to pick up some help with problems, if any arise.
