Nicknames: Finn, Finny, Barky McFinnigan, Finn Finn, Blenheim boy, lil man
Birthday: February 21st 2008
Likes: Attention, chasing the felines, playing with Skye, playing ball with dad. He loved running through the house especially with Will. At 5, he still loves to run through the house, but he does love his bed and laying in that all stretched out.
Pet-Peeves: He likes to taunt Misa the feline. HE HATES HIS SNOOD. He just freezes and refuses to move when we put it on him! Pine straw on the floor. He stands there and barks at it until you pick it up. Items on the kitchen counter, like thawing meat. He has a fit.
Favorite Toy: His "buddy", a stuffed brown and white bear/lion mutant looking thingy that squeaks. He also loves his soccer ball and anything that Skye is playing with. At 5, Buddy is STILL around. He carries it everywhere. And buddy is flithy now.
Favorite Food: Finn is a "finn"icky eater, although it has gotten better..He eats kibble and chicken breast, loves his cookies and loves soft philly pretzels. Also, loves the morsels in the CAT BOX!!!
Favorite Walk: In the back yard. He loves his fenced in back yard. He also loves Waggy World Park in Alpharetta
Best Tricks: Laying down, turning over and showing his belly when I say "Relax"; quietly sidling up to you when you least expect it (I list sidling as a trick because its like he appears out of nowhere)
Arrival Story: We adopted Finn from Brookhaven Cavaliers in Madison, GA. which is run by Brenda Martz and Paula Ayers (sisters). He was one of three Blenheim boys and Finn chose us and our hearts when he came over and sat in between my husbands feet that day! It was a long ride back home and Finn slept on my lap the whole way like he knew he had his forever parents and home! Paula and Brenda are great breeders and raise their pups with alot of love! Thanks to them I have a wonderful pup. Finn is also an AKC Canine Good Citizen and a therapy dog with Therapy Dogs, Inc. He is also a titled therapy dog (C-TC) with the CKCSC USA and the AKC (THD).
Bio: Finn's father is CKCSC Ch Pascavale Pancho at Brookhaven - a 2006 champion and a handsome cav!! His grandpa is Eng Ch Pascavale Enchanted (Teddy).
As of November 21,2008 Finn has a new brother! His name is Skye and he is 3 days younger than Finn. Although not blood related, they both are from Brookhaven Cavaliers.
Forums Motto: He's a kissing machine!! & very complex.
gosh, i had a very not so great week. i threw up and was panting and all sorts of unsettled and mummy whisks me off to the vet man. well, i got something to calm my stummy and a doggie prilosec pill to take at nights. it did make me feel better. but two days later something on my leg was making me itch so i started licking and biting it. it was on my back leg. mummy saw me licking and came over and she freaked out on me. it was raised above my fur and shiny and red. mummy had daddy come and look at it and i heard them say go to the vet men. ugh, i was just there people....
so we go there and they look at my leg. and the vet lady says it needs to come off and they are gonna do it NOW. WHAT???? Are you kidding me. So mummy is all teary and kisses me and says "I love you so much little man"... WTF.
The vet lady uses a thingy called gas on me and the next thing i know i got a bandage on my leg and i am not feelin so hot. but mummy and dads come and i was so happy to see them and get the you know what outta there and go home. i was never so glad to see the big old lard butt...
but i was panting really really hard and was all unsettled and wonky. i finally got on the sofa and slept next to mummy but i was hurting and not feeling so hot. I did eat a little but mummy had to feed me by hand.
the next morning i felt better but i still panting alot. this was all done on thursday and today is saturday and i am still not my complicated self. i really dont want to eat, and i know i am mopey and the leg is making me want to bite the bandage.
mummy is worried, she gives me water off the water bottle and tells me she loves me. i go back to the vetman on monday to get my bandage changed and i know mummy is gonna ask how come i am panting so much. then, a week from monday i get the stitches out. but they had to send out that lump to see if it is maligant or benign. mummy is all worried and prays for benign, so i guess that is what i want it to be also. so dogster buddys, pray it is benign. okay. i even asked the big old lard butt to pray for benign..he said he would because he is my brother and he loves me...
So the pawrents got a new bed for me and the lard butt to sleep on at night. It is upstairs and on the holder that has the pillows and blankies on them. The pawrents sleep on it too. it is like big. but not real real big like the hotel kind of beds we sleep in. we have lots of room in them beds.
this one here is much higher up than the old one. mummy needs a stool to get into bed now. daddy says she's over the hill. i dont see no hill anywhere just a stool and a bed.
but that bed is way more softer and better than the other one. i like it. the lard butt probably cant tell the difference. he still sleeps on the pillows. them are the same.
so this aint the greatest post. but its all about comfort when you is 5 like me.
