Profile: After years of research, exploring virtually every dog breed and narrowing my choices in an effort to find the perfect dog for us, I discovered Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I knew one of these little dogs would be perfect for us. . Then to find a breeder! Not as easy as it sounds. While these dogs are the one of the most popular dog breed in England, they are still rather unknown in North America. It was important to me to try to find one in Canada. I did correspond with one breeder in Alberta for a couple of years, but she doesn't breed very often and so rarely has a pup for sale that it could be years and years before one was available. . One day, my husband and I spotted a Blenheim (red and white) Cavalier being walked across a parking lot at a ferry terminal where we were waiting to catch a ferry home. I called the man over, and he was happy to give me the name of his breeder. She lives only two ferries and about four hours from my home! . I contacted her right away, and found she was going to have a litter in the winter of 2007. If there was a Blenheim boy born, he was to be mine! Kiba was born on January 23, my grandmother's birthday. It was fate! . Kiba came home on April 12, my grandfather's birthday. He's been the light of our lives ever since. He is just simply the best dog you could ask for, funny and goofy, kind and comforting, smart and clever, yet amenable and so willing to please. What a dog! This is what love should be. . In case anyone is interested,"Kiba" means "fang" in Japanese. It comes from the anime (Japanese animated program) "Wolf's Rain" in which the lead character is a wolf named "Kiba". He's a good and true friend, just want I wanted in a dog.
