I have so many stories to tell you and so much has happened lately and my mind is a jumbled chaotic mess but all I can focus on right now is MY NEW PUPPY! I finally have another Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in my life!
Emma and I went to pick him up three days ago and it was love at first sight when we met him! I drove over FIVE hours away to pick him up in the San Bernardino Mountains (gorgeous area by the way). It actually took SIX hours to get home because the GPS took me by Los Angeles DURING rush hour. Eeek! Kind of a scary experience for a small town girl with no sense of direction and a car sick puppy! The GPS and I are currently not on speaking terms.
He absolutely adores Emma and does everything she does. I'm so excited that Emma has a "mini-me" who worships the ground her paws walk on.
And she is such a good big sister to him. She's so tolerant and patient and she happily "volunteered" to sleep in the crate with him for moral support during his first few nights here.
And are you ready to get some major goosebumps???!!! Do you remember how Daisy sent me a sign that our new house in California was THE ONE? After that happened I actually thought to myself "I wonder if Daisy is going to send me a puppy too....." And guess what - She did! This puppy was born on March 26.....and guess who else was born on March 26.....Yup....Daisy! The new puppy and Daisy share a birthday. Do you have goosebumps yet???
So now that you've all been properly introduced to the incredibly sweet, smart and stunning Sir Baxter Buckingham Puddingstone III I need to get back to staring at him as he sleeps on a down pillow beside me.
P.S. We're going to call him Baxter for short. And there was no Sir Baxter Buckingham Puddingstone I or II. My cousin came up with the idea to give him an outrageously long name with Sir at the front and III at the end. And I reserve the right to change the name if I come up with something better in the next week! He doesn't know his name yet so it won't be a problem for him.
P.P.S.S. Don't worry about Emma! She's not sad in that first photo. We'd woken up at 5:00 a.m., driven 5 hours and entered a home that had 7 Cavaliers in it. She was just exhausted and a wee bit overwhelmed!
