Meet Beau

Meet Beau, the newest addition to our family. It was a 3,500 mile round trip road trip to get him, but it was worth it. It took us 2 days to get to San Antonio, Texas from the SF Bay Area and 3 days to get back home (which was still a LOT of driving). As well as picking up our Beau, a very sweet east going almost 1 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who instantly fit into our family, we got to enjoy the very beautiful city of San Antonio - we loved it so much, we hope to return to it again someday.

Bean looks like a sweetheart and a wonderful addition to your family.! It blows me away that you traveled so far for him.
I'm guessing the we will see the "kids" in paintings soon, at least I hope so!

I don't think I've ever seen a Cavalier that wasn't a beauty! I love Beau's coloring Edward. He looks like he has a delightful personality. How is little Sophie liking having a brother?

Well done Edward, I'm sure if you took the time and effort to travel so far to collect Beau, he'll be well looked after for life.

No wonder Sophie couldn't resist him with those big blues! What a couple of cuties! We have a Springer so I'm probably partial.

Kathleen Krucoff said...

Beautiful boy. We had to make a road trip to get our youngest basset, almost three years ago...not as far as yours, but 26 hour round trip from Colorado Springs to Phoenix and back. Well worth it. Great to hear he's fitting in with the family.

Hi Edward,

Children and pets ( it almost seems that I'm saying they're the same :-) )bring joy to a home.
I'm sure that he'll add up.

Kind regards,

José
