Ready. Set. Fly.

May 25, 2010


Parker in route to St. Louis with his toys in tow. As the vet suggested, we fed him a quarter of the normal amount of food, limited his water intake and gave him a half tablet of Benadryl prior to the 9 a.m. flight. I wish I could share a frenzied story about him barking at the pilot as we entered the plane or refusing to get back into the bag after going through security. But, we didn’t hear so much as a sigh from our co-traveler the entire trip, as he rested in his travel bag under the seat at 30,000 feet.

Parker’s dad is Travis (left), who is originally from Wales. When he came to America, he was honored with “Best in Show.” He was also featured on the cover of The Royal Spaniels magazine, spring 2009 issue. His equally stunning mom is Katie (right). Photos provided by Crystalridge Cavaliers.

There’s an App for Parker

May 8, 2010

Parker is featured on his very first app. He is part of the Ruby gallery of photos on waremobile’s “My Cavalier,” available for iPhone and iPod touch. The app, specifically designed for the Cavalier enthusiast, provides information on the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed including history, regal colors, health and a full gallery of photos. Want your Cavalier to be featured or part of the photo gallery? If so, send images to The team will e-mail you when the image/or images are published in the gallery.
