So Cavalier!

We welcomed sweet Charlie into our family today.

Look at that sweet face!

We visited the local animal shelter and saw a cute dog with sweet eyes, but we wanted a female dog so we checked out another shelter and a pet store before returning to the city shelter to see if this Cavalier dog would be a good fit. Once we got him away from the other dogs in the kennel, we fell in love with him!   He'd only been in the pound for 24 hrs and we felt lucky for that.

At PetSmart afterwards, we found out that our little doggie was a very expensive breed - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  Everyone we've talked to has said that they cannot believe we got Charlie at the pound! We can't believe it either now! We just know that he is so sweet, is always wagging his tail and just seems to love being with us. The Cavalier was originally bred to be a comfort and companion dog and that is so what we have needed.
