Tomorrow I'm taking Fletcher and the #1 cavalier lover in our house, Mr. Monster to a event with our local CKCS Meet Up Group.
Its at a pet spa about an hour away, I'm not looking forward to hearing "Mommy are you getting us lost?" from my 5 year old in the backseat. Fletcher in the other hand is a wonderful car rider. The pet spa is a new place just opened in January, they have all the grooming, boarding ect. things you would expect however, they have these totally fenced in walking trails thur the woods, and several huge play yards all double gated to prevent accidental escapes, and even a huge outdoor pool with zero entrance on one end!! (not that its warm enough to swim). I believe this whole place is some brainchild of a vet. They also offer training and behavior management.... Sounds cool!!! Our group has use of one of the .5 mile trails and a large play area from 1pm-4pm for FREE. Wonderful advertising, I guess.
Mr. Monster is super excited to go meet other cavaliers!!! All day he's asked me if we are going tomorrow and every time I say yes, I also review the "meeting dogs" rules. Funny he asked me about 1/2 hour ago, when I said yes he said....no touching dogs without permission from you and other Mommy or Daddy of the dog, put my hand up slowly and let the doggie meet me first, only gentle petting and sweet words. HAHAHAHAA I think he gets it. He's great about these rules, he followed them to a tee when we went to a cavalier dog show in March. I just hope he has fun since he will likely be the only child there. Most members are older folks....super nice people, cavalier crazy to the end like me (or us)
I'm going to take lots of pictures so I will post them tomorrow. Hopefully I can get a shot with Mr. Monster covered in dogs
