Hi! My name is Kathleen and I got my first Cavalier in Sept. She is a black/tan and we are so in love with her.
I swore from the time my kids could say the word "dog" we would NEVER, EVER own a dog. By the way, I have two girls ages 5 and 8. I've never been a dog person. Well as usual while at the mall the kids made me go into the pet store. I ususally stay back while they are in the little rooms holding them, as I've always think dogs stink.
Then out comes this little creature called a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. This is no dog. This is an angel from heaven. The dog was so sweet and with those big eyes it was calling our name. Well at that price I was not going to make a hasty decision. So I went home and researched. Found out about pet stores and puppy mills. I contacted several breeders and found the one that I was most comfortable with (even though there was a heavy price with her).
Anyways, she has two females pregnant right now and we will be bring home our second pup (this time a ruby) in Mid March/early April. A year ago I would have said "Hell no, I'll never own a dog". Here I am about to add a second one to our family. When he or she is born and brought home they will be 2 months and 9 months. If I could, I'd buy both her new litters.
Anyways, thanks for letting me babble! I've been lurking around for quite sometime and decided to come out of the woodwork as I had a question for Bruce.
