Meet Jasper! The New Puppy

We have a new puppy!  
It just sort of happened...  
There was an auction of Cavaliers 
that I heard about through a Cavalier site 
that I follow on Instagram 
(mostly for the adorable pictures).  
They had shut down a Puppy Mill 
and they were going to auction off 100 dogs 
that the puppy mill had at their puppy farm.  
The auction was only a few hours away 
in Missouri so Miss Beaux and I talked Mr. Beaux 
into going on Saturday.  
Well as it happened, 
we didn't end up getting a puppy at the auction...  
A rescue organization 
had raised over $150,000 to buy the puppies. 
They bought 97 of them at a minimum of $3600 each!  
That was too expensive for me!  
But I guess we were supporting them 
in a way by being there.   
At least they won't go to another puppy mill 
to be over bred.  
So, we stopped at the pet store 
just to look at the puppies 
and when we walked in 
there was Little Jasper 
in the window with a sale sticker.  
The story is that he was returned 
by the family because the mother has Alzheimer's.  
They wanted to sell him quickly 
because he is 23 weeks old 
and younger puppies sell much better.  
   So we snatched him up and brought him home!  
He is crate trained and almost potty trained.  
He is very sweet and loving but active too!  
We feel like we performed 
our own little rescue 
by taking him home!  
Of course I know that our house is for sale 
and it probably is not the best time 
to get a new puppy.  
But it's like having kids... 
Is there ever a perfect time?  
All of the snuggles and puppy kisses 
are certainly worth the extra effort!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

Jasper is ADORABLE!!! I think Cavvies are the cutest dogs on earth.

Have fun and enjoy him. He's a sweetie!

Jasper is just adorable! We have a 4 year old Cavalier named Bella. This is the best breed! They have the sweetest personalities, more human like than dog like. You will be forever blessed by this dog!

What a cutie...I would have snatched him up too!!

Your Jasper is so cute...and NO, I do not think you're crazy! We got our 1st Puppy 5 years ago, the 2nd Puppy 2 weeks later and the 3rd came a year and a half later. Our 2nd Puppy died last year...and a few weeks later, we got Puppy #4! Our oldest is a Maltese (he's 6) and his name is Jasper too!! Have a great time with your Puppy!

There is never a bad time for a puppy! I don't believe in coincidences. If you hadn't been at that auction you probably wouldn't have stopped by the pet store--but the stars were aligned, lol. Lil Jasper was obviously destined to be yours and you were destined to be his forever family! Have fun with him and keep those puppy pictures coming!

OMG, he is adorable. I have always wanted a Cavalier but we always seem to take in one or two that have been dumped. That's where we got our Jake and Molly that we have now. We love them and they needed a good home but maybe someday a Cavalier will be in the cards for me.

Congrats! On your gorgeous new puppy, he is precious ;-)

Congratulations!! I could see why you adopted Jasper, he's just adorable. There really is never a perfect time to bring a puppy home but, they just get into your hearts and become part of your family. Enjoy Jasper!
