All Four Colors

Not every family gets all four colors...One might wonder how breeders handle letting their puppies and especially their older retired dogs go off to live with other families. I have been blessed by the wonderful families that have come along through the years, but this family has become very special.

Renee called me years ago when her Blenheim Cavalier passed away suddenly from an unexpected turn of events during surgery from the anesthesia...he was only two years old. Their tri-color girl pictured here, Snickers was suddenly an only dog and they were grieving the loss of their beloved Starbucks.

They opened their home up to Cinnabon who is the Blenheim boy pictured here. When they came to pick Cinnabon up at 10 weeks of age they also fell head over heals in love with Cruiser. Cruiser was our first Cavalier...our first champion...and we named our kennel after him...so let me tell you he is a VERY SPECIAL BOY! A year or so went by and Renee and her family moved from Wyoming to Florida and once moved they were ready for a Cruiser offspring I was ready to retire Cruiser and gave them the opportunity to open their home once again to a third Cavalier. Cruiser settled in very quickly as I knew he would. Another year or so went by and Cracker Jack became available so I asked Renee if she was ready to have all four colors...as you can see here she said yes.

No, not every family gets all four colors, but I am blessed to meet wonderful families like Renee's family who I can build lifelong friendships with through the years. Luckily, Renee's son lives in Edmond, Oklahoma and they are huge Oklahoma SOONERS fans just like my husband and I. They travel from Florida to Oklahoma on a regular basis to see their son and granddaughter and of course all the dogs come too. Their first stop in Oklahoma is always our house where I can catch up on hugs and kisses from my boys.
