Today is Bunty’s 4th birhday, Bastille Day. Her mom was Kenzie and her dad was Kingsley. She is 11 lbs. and almost entirely black with a white soul patch, a small white patch on her breast and a few white toes. What an unbelievably loving and lovable companion she has been! I waited a long time to get a small black puppy and was rewarded with Bunty. She loves everyone and wants to say hello to people and other dogs when we walk, but is easily contained if that’s not a good idea. She especially likes to chase balls (still not quite ready to “leave them” everytime) and to sleep on my lap when she gets tired. She and kitty get along famously. She sleeps with me and usually ends up under the covers before dawn (my choice — I could have trained he to sleep in a crate). She is a joy!

Love those black beauties. We only get solid black pups 1-2 times per year, so it’s definitely a more rare color. Kenzie, her mama, has been retired because she struggled during birth both times she had puppies. She is living a happy life with a family, walks, and cozy beds and treats!
Bella and Daisy aren’t actually sisters, but they are close enough. With just three months separating their birthdays (late 2018 & early 2019), they seems to be like two peas in a pod.
I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable photo of them with their tongues sticking out!
Also, if you’re wondering about their colors, the dog on the left is an adult solid sable and the right is a blenheim.
If you’d like to share your Silver Paw Cavachon on the blog, send an update with a bit of info (please include parents and birthday if possible) and some photos and I’d be happy to post here on the blog. It’s so fun to hear what the dogs can do now and how they have become part of the family.
I love getting updates on the puppies. This is an Olivia & Jester pup!
Obi is now 5 months old and doing great. He completed his puppy training, goes to weekly socialization “play dates” and has just started his “Teen manners” classes. He continues to love everyone and everything which is what we wanted. He can Sit, Down, Come, Touch, Leave it, and Drop it. He loves chasing balls but is learning that bringing them back to me allows the game to continue. We are working on “Go to your Matt” and “Stay”. He is still lovely in his crate overnight and many times puts himself to bed. He is already 18 lbs! Bigger than we thought he would be since we thought he would be about 19 lbs fully grown. He may be a “megachon”. People love his friendly demeanor – he has never met anyone he did not like! Even the young man with autism down the street who tends to make sudden loud noises which has caused other dogs to startle and bark at him. Obi loves him (which I encouraged by giving Obi a piece of cheese when we would see him) and they have a good cuddle every time we meet. My neighbours had to euthanize their old dog about 2 weeks after Obi came home and now that Obi walks well on a leash, they will come over and take him for a walk and a cuddle when they need a little “puppy therapy”.
What a blessing he is to his community! He’s a “golden” dog, which is the color of the four females we have that are available and ready to go home any day. What a little trooper Obi is!!
