Introducing Dolly

I am happy to announce the newest member of our family:  Miss Dolly!

Miss Dolly is a seven year old King Charles Cavalier that my friend's friend was breeding, and she decided that Miss Dolly needed to go into retirement and have a chance at the good life.  It only took a little begging and pleading for Big Daddy to come around.  And now I think he is loving her...

She needs a bath.  And a haircut.  But she is sweet as pie, and tolerates the absolute hysterical excitement J-man had when he met her.  Miss Dolly is going to be awesome for him, I can tell already. 

Oh, and have you ever heard of debarking?  That is when the cut away a portion of the vocal cords to soften or eliminate the dog's bark.  I had never heard it before.... it sounds barbaric.... but the previous owner (prior to the breeder we got her from) had her debarked.  I must admit I am a little horrified.  She has the softest squeak.  And don't think that I don't miss the irony that my apraxic, verbally challenged son's dog has no voice.  In a way, it may be a match made in heaven.

On another note:  J-man peed on the potty today!  Details coming in my next post....
