“Oh, yes I did!” Parker couldn’t be the only Cavalier at the Halloween MeetUp without a costume. We found this little number online at http://www.drsfostersmith.com. But, don’t you think an angel costume is more fitting of Parker?

Since adopting Parker, I’ve become keenly aware of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. It’s funny – you either absolutely love the breed or mistake them for Cocker Spaniels, or in Parker’s case, an Irish Setter. No kidding – I’ve been asked that more than once. The latest Cavalier sighting was in the movie, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.” A great movie, given the dismal and eye-opening topic, made even better with the addition of adorable Blenheim Cavies.
After an initial examination, which involved listening to his heart with a stethoscope, the vet said Parker was healthy. As Cavalier owners, we know that an annual heart screening is a vital part of caring for our dogs. Dallas Fort Worth Cavaliers King Charles Spaniel Club (http://dfwckcsc.com/) graciously provides low-cost annual clinics with renowned heart specialists. The group has also helped us meet other Cavalier owners, like our friends Sandy, Mike, Kaylynn and Michelle, and continues to be a great source of information. A big “like” to DFW Cavaliers.
Yes, I went the entire month of September without a post. To be honest, I started thinking, “Have I learned all I need to know about WordPress blogs to apply it to work?” “Do people think I’m just a smidge crazy for writing about Parker, rather than my own exciting life experiences?” And, “Who really cares about the blog – other than my seven dear friend subscribers who include my mother?” Love you, mom! Then, it happened. A friend called and told me his brother and family adopted a Cavalier. He said, “They read the blog from beginning to end, taking particular note of the breeder recommendations.” Enjoy a photo of the recently adopted puppy Dash.
