I wanted to share my Cavalier Love Story..... (sorry if this is long!)
My name is Kristen and my husband, Clint and I fell in love with Cavaliers at a dog show. We did our research like crazy and tried to find a puppy in Illinois. After no luck because of the high demand (and some run-ins with puppy mills), I decided to extend my search to a 7 hour radius by car. I stumbled upon Kris and Bruce in Minnesota. With a bit of luck, a puppy was supposed to go to another owner, but they were moving and decided it wasn't a good time for a puppy. Kris was so knowledgable, friendly, and sent pictures right away. That's when I first saw my Wrigley. A cute, energetic pup ready for anything! We drove the 7-8 hours to Minnesota to pick up the little guy and it was more than worth it. We were blown away by the obvious love in the house for all these dogs. Wrigley was the ring-leader, ignored us at first because he was causing trouble with his brothers and sisters! Star, Wrigley's mom, was just beautiful. She was friendly and eager to be petted. Kris and Bruce have always been available when ever we had a question, love sending puppy pictures when Star has babies, and we love to send them pictures of growing Wrigs. I was never allowed to have a dog when I was growing up (same with my husband) and the amount of joy Wrigs brings to us makes me know that it was worth the wait for this incredible puppy. He's such a cuddler, loves chasing blowing leaves, and greets each visitor as if he/she has been special-ordered as a playdate for him! We look forward to getting another puppy from Kris and Bruce as soon as it's the right time. We wouldn't think of another breeder...they were just fantastic!
Here's my little one....(I'm new at posting pics, so if this doesn't work, I can try again!)
