Settling In

Things are beginning to settle down a little and find a rhythm. Kiki still hasn't declared friendship with Boston (though he tirelessly tries to win her affection which is sometimes heartbreaking) but it's getting much, much better. He is such a good little boy and already answers to his name by leaping up and bouncing over to me like a little spring lamb! He is extremely cuddly and I adore shmoozing with him. 

I also am extra careful to give my sweet Kiki enough attention, especially when Boston is napping. Today she wagged and rolled onto her back for me, so I knew she can't hate me. 

I am truly harmony-hungry and can't wait for Kiki to love Boston....but on the other hand, I try to enjoy things the way they are now, knowing that Boston will grow up so, so fast.

For now Kiki still chooses to sleep way on the other end of the bed...but I know one day they will curl up in an adorable snoring pile of Cavalier.

  1. Awww, lovely photos yet again Dawn! Doesn't Boston look tiny next to Kiki?
    Try not to be too harmony-hungry, they will find their own place in their own time. And lovely to see they're already sniffing and exploring together!

  2. will pass...she's already coming round a bit! xxx

  3. He's precious and kiki is going to adore keep that lovely dream alive!! :) your family is growing and so will the laughter, smiles and memories. xoxo ><>

  4. so cute.....i love that kiki sleeps as far as she can away from him...but refuses to leave the bed entirely! luka does the same when i watch other dogs that happen to find their way into my bed....soon enough they will be great friends! i love the nose to nose cute is that?!
    so much fun...enjoy

  5. Too much! I love how you are settling in, patient for the outcome that is most certain to come. Boston is absolutely adorable, and I have such a great love for Kiki. Thank you for sharing them with us!



  6. Oh my darling! YOur pictures just capture these two in beautiful moments so we too can enjoy their love and growth!!

    xoxo Gert

  7. they are just so beautiful and adorable

  8. Darling Dawn, you're quite right....all will be well. It's new and strange for all of you, Kiki says 'who IS this & when's he leaving?' Boston says 'where's my mum & my brothers & sisters?' Soon they will be inseparable. Dogs are meant to live in groups after all. You've given them both a great gift. So happy for you, have a lovely weekend xox

  9. Oh my gosh!! They are two of the cutest things I've ever seen! That picture where they're looking at each other is beyond adorable! ♥

  10. I just love him! My daughter and I are both trying to convince my husband that we need a Cavalier puppy. We have two terriers already :) I love your blog!

  11. I can't get over how cute he is!
