I was reading an old post on Honey the Great Dane's website a couple of days ago, and I read one that talked about Honey's parents, and I have decided to do a blog about my parents too!
My mom's name is Lizzie, and she is a a tan and white (Blenheim) Cavalier. She was born in Ireland, but she came to Missouri when she was a puppy. She is a very pretty dog, and she was a great mother!. When I was born the only other puppy in my litter died at birth, so my mom raised me as an only child (this is partly why I am still pretty timid around rowdy, hyper, dogs. )

My dad's name is Sailor, and he is a tricolor Cavalier, just like me. Tonya says I look just like my dad. He was born in England, but he also came to my breeders when he was a puppy. My dad was a show dog, although he still had time to spend with my mom (and have me!) When my breeders introduced my mom and dad they hit it off right away. My dad charmed my mom, and they soon became a couple. They had a couple of litters before I came along, but when I came I was as cute as could be!

When I was born my breeders were at first not going to put me up for adoption, they were going to use me as a stud dog, to perform in dog shows, and have puppies with their other girl dogs. But they put my puppy photo up on their website, anyway. That's when my human mom saw a picture of me when she was surfing the web, looking for Cavalier breeders. She fell in love with me right away! And when she told the rest of the family, they agreed I was the dog for them! After exchanging several emails with my breeder, the deal was done, and I was due to start my new life, in my new home when I reached 8 weeks old.
Here are the pictures my human mom first saw of me.
