On a lovely Saturday, we pulled into a Starbucks in Tampa, where we lived at the time.
In another vehicle in the parking lot slept a three-month-old, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, girl.
No, the show Sex and the City, and their beautiful CKCS, Elizabeth Taylor, had absolutely nothing to do with our decision to get a Cavi. As a matter of fact, I had totally forgotten about that precious puppy when researching canine breeds. Enough to know that even though Cavis can and do have a multitude of quite serious health issues, we knew this was the breed for us.
We were 100% correct.
If you have never met a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, you should. You will never find a more loving and devoted small dog. They are descended from British royalty, but they don't really act like it, too much.
They are food-lovers, people-lovers, sleep-lovers...well, they are all about love.
So, Happy 9th Birthday to the sweetest girl -- our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Reggie.
Okay, her official name is Bella Regina. But, the real story is, we named her Regina after the character played by Audrey Hepburn in a film titled, Charade. Her name was Regina, but she was called, Reggie. I loved it, and it fit our precious girl.
Please come, and envision the world through the eyes of me, The Lady, Reggie (yeah, I'm a dog, but these days everyone yaps about nothing on a blog).
