Well, let me tell you about my weekend.
It was both fun, happy, tiring, nerve wracking and humilating!
First off, Friday afternoon - WILL and his dad came over whilst I was napping in my royal x-pen! OMD. WILL! We went bonkers when we saw each other! We went outside and ran circles, chasing each other! But then...We got put back into the x-pen and crate (Will stays in a crate) and my brother LEFT! What just happened there???? So Will and I just stared at each other. I threw my buddy out for him but he could not reach him. Then mummy came home! And she was surprised to see Will! We got to run outside again in circles and we were wet and exhausted. Then mummy fed us and I just kept growling because I did not want Will to take my food. Mummy said I was being naughty.
Will and I played all night and we finally ran out of steam and fell asleep in front of the telly. Then my brother came home and Will and him went to bed and we went upstairs to sleep on the big soft bed.
Then it was Saturday. I love Saturday mornings because after I wake everyone up at 3 am to do my "stuff", I go back to sleep knowing that I do not have to go into my royal x-pen! Mum got up early though and left me and daddy in the big soft bed. Daddy told me I smelled and and get out of his face! I was hurt. I did not think that smell was me...I thought it was Daddy! And I would NEVER tell Dads that he smelled.
Well, mum came back all happy..and she petted me and told me she would make me my special egg. And then Will came running down and he got an egg too! I heard the parents talking about how bad I smelled and then I figured it out....I was going to that place and getting a bath!!! But they waited until my other brother came over to visit. They wanted to eat together as a family. WHO CARES WHAT TIME YOU EAT?? WHY WAIT??
So anyway, when my other brother shows up, they put Will in his crate and I get go in the mini (Gosh, I LOVE to ride in the mini!). I was in the back with mum and Will's dad. And yep, I was going to the bath place. I get so nervous when I get a bath. Chris, the man who gives me a bath, told mum that I really do stink more than normal and mum said something about being wet and rolling in the leaves. I have fun doing that! So it makes me stinky!
After my bath, I admit, I did look rather dashing. And the smell was gone. So it must have been me all along! We go back to the palace and pick up Will and drive to the humilation.
What is the humiliation? Will and I get our pictures taken. That was totally humiliating. I had on a cowboy hat and bandana, antlers, a bath towel, etc. I will say I did look good in the jaunty cap and tie they put on me, but c'mon people!!! Will had an american flag draped around him! So, mum and my brother were saying "ooooh" and "ahhhh" at all the pics. I know they bought some and I heard mum say she was gonna post them to dogster.
The humiliation I have to endure for being so cute and princely!!!

My daddy came home last night! I was sooo happy! I was up in the royal bedchambers with mum and while she was putzing around (I learnt a new word - putzing) I was playing with my buddy.
Then, I hear the beep noise that means the door opened up and I ran downstairs and there he was! And besides the black bag with rolling things on the bottom of it, he also had something that smelled really really good! Something I have never smelled before!
Well, I went crazy over this smell and had to have some of this food thing! I begged and squealed and then mum gave me a little bit of it. YUM YUM YUM. It was like tasting heaven!! Mum and Dad laughed at me because I was very protective of the bits they were giving me.
They called this stuff PIZZA. Since I came to my furever home, we never have had this stuff. Let me tell you, it is incredible. It has to be better than Wendy fry that Nibbles goes wonkers over!
Mum told me don't get used to it. It was only a treat and it won't be back in the house for another 6 months! How can they be so cruel? All the other food is only lots of veggies, chicken and fish. And I don't get to eat the fish. And I already get chicken for dinner so it ain't all that, although I don't mind the broccoli.
Just think....if I had this pizza thing AND Rita's water ice every day....Life would be PERFECT!

Well, I have not written in a few days...my weekend was not too exciting.
No Will. No Waggy World. No Rita's Water Ice. Just alot of staying in my x-pen. I missed several cavalier events that, I, as a young prince, should have attended. However, my handlers (they used to be called mummy and daddy) had OTHER plans. Like football games and something called a church meeting. Pooey. So, me and my buddy stayed in my royal x-pen and we both were comiserating with each other. And those felines....all they did was to watch buddy and I atop the kitchen table. LIKE VULTURES.
I thought Friday was gonna be fun. I got dressed up in my turtle outfit and we paraded around the palace grounds. (me and my handler). Then all the little humans in their costumes came to the door for the candy mumm...oops, my handler....was giving out. I loved them and they all were wanting to adore and pet me!
Well, let me tell you. THAT was the highlight of my weekend.
And then yesterday, when my handler let me out after she came home, she did not leash me so I decided to bolt the palace grounds. I went into the woods behind the palace. She couldn't come after me. I was free! Running and eating leaves and smelling all kinds of smells! I was running like an idoit (that is what the handler said) and I could tell she was NOT happy. She finally tricked me into coming back into the palace by telling me she was going to give me a cookie. HA. THat did not happen! I only got yelled at! And I had dirty paws and a dirty belly. After the yelling, I wish I had my mummy to cuddle next to, so when the handler sat down on the throne to watch telly, I cuddled next to her and magically mummy appeared!
I wish they knew that I am a young whippersnapper and I am not "fixed" yet (although they are talking about it...) and I just want to run! My hormones are running high....just like the deer that mummy says are in the rut. Don't know where this rut is and what it's got to do with hormones, but I think she is pretty knowledgable about stuff....

Ok mum and dad went and pulled up all the carpet in the palace and put in it's place this hard brown stuff. Not soft at all and I now can no longer sidle them in the lower level of the palace.
I don' t like that brown stuff. I cannot eat my cookies on them. I am not comfortable. I slip when I run on them. That feline, Misa, LOVES the brown stuff. She hides and attacks me and just waits for me to slip all over!
I now have to either go into the room that has the big table that nobody eats at (mum calls it a dining room. I dont know why. I have yet to see anyone eat at that table) OR I have to take my cookie upstairs to the royal bedchambers.
The room with the telly is no longer my comfort place. I used to lay and sleep in there all the time. Now I have to have mum put the throne throw pillows on the floor so I can rest!
I hope all my furiends will have fun at their pawties this weekend. I am stuck at the palace and cannot go. They are going to a stupid football game instead!!! I am sooo upset that MY needs come second to theirs!!!

I am just beside myself...Dogster Diary of the Day! Me. Finn. Blenheim extrodinare. Prince of Alpharetta. Love of my parents lives. Will's best friend. O-M-D!!!!
When I found out, I just squealed and jumped for joy! I took my buddy (you know my buddy is my true buddy even though he is not real...mum calls him my security blanket..oops i digress..) Well I just took my buddy and launched him out of the royal x-pen so he could run to the computer to see for himself!!
I told mummy and mummy didn't believe me so she had to look and then she had to call daddy to tell him! I hope that I get something out of them for this achievement! Like AN EXTRA COOKIE? RITA'S WATER ICE??? Hint Hint....
And shouts out all around to all my dogster cav buddies and non-cav buddies. I just think you all are the BESTEST! But not as bestest as Ruger. He's really cool and he has to put up with too many women...He deserves dog of the day or something for that.

Well here are some more random thoughts from this weekend...
I just love being part of the cav corner and meeting all my new cav buddies!! It's the bestest!
And oh yeah, I am really bummed about this whole football game thing that the parents are going to. It interferes with my "me" time!!
Will did not come over this weekend and that bummed me out too. I waited all weekend for him and even told my buddy that he would come and he NEVER came!! I miss my Will!!
And what is it with the costumes?? Mum got me a turtle costume awhile ago, and while it is not my favourite things to wear, I was proud of how it looked on me. (I made the costume, it did not make me!) But then, mum and dad come home with ANOTHER costume and I was like WHAT????? They kept calling me a stinker. I was not amused, as you can see by my dogster photos. I put up with this humiliation but I don't tolerate insolence!! I am a PRINCE! And if them felines saw me in that, I would never live that down.
You know, I like going to AKC dog shows. Mum and Dad took me to one this weekend to see the bigtime show cavs, plus my half sister Rosie was one of the bigtime show cavs. She won her category!! YEA Rosie!! And my breeders won alot of really big ribbons. I got to see them again and they told mummy I looked like a Pancho baby. Pancho is my fur daddy. They said I looked really good and could tell I got alot of love. I sat on mummy's lap and watched all the cavs parade around the ring and mum and dad told me that my behaviour was most excellent! OF COURSE it is! I am a royal cavalier!! I only fell asleep for like 10 minutes but it was a real long time. There were 56 cavies all in one spot! WE RULE!
I also got my pictures taken by a lady at the dog show. I hated that! I did not want to stand still - I am not a poser. But they got pictures of me and mum says she will send them in the Christmas cards....
And guess what I ate at the dog show...a thing called a HOT DOG! At first I thought it was DOG and did not want it but as soon as I tasted it, I wanted the whole thing! Mum feed me little bits and I ended up eating it all up except for the bread. And I had one of them fry things. I really did not like them. I liked the Hot Dog better. I don't know what is special about the fry. Maybe I need a Wendy fry??
And lastly, here is some sad news that made my mummy sad yesterday..she saw gran at church and gran's fur, KC, crossed over the bridge on Thursday afternoon whilst gran was walking him in his favorite park. He just collasped. He was an old fur and gran's baby like I am mummy's baby. Gran was too upset to call mummy when it happened. Mummy said KC was an old man - he was 14. Gran and Gramps took KC to the vet from the park and even though Gran knew he was gone, the vet needed to give him "the shot". Gran held KC's face to hers and when KC got the shot, he had a reflex thing and bit Gran's nose. Gran said there was alot of blood from her nose and was upset that KC was suffering. She is really sad and misses KC. Mummy came home and told me that she loves me and gave me hugs and kisses and wants me around for a long time. I hope gran remembers all the good time she had with KC - like mummy has with me.

I just had something after I ate my dinner last night that I never had before..it was peanut butter like but really cold and milky...mummy told me it was frosty paws and it was strange but oddly tasty.....
And speaking of food, I really prefer plain yogurt over vanilla. I dont know why, i just do. Oh yeah, and I really really really really beg hard for some of them red twizzly sticks that dad eats but he wont give them to me because mum says not to. Dad calls them twizzlers. I call them something I really want.
One of my dogster cav buddies has told me that wendy's is good because they have a thing called fry. I want one of them too. I dont know what a wendy's or a fry is but I have been whispering in mum's ear at night to gimme one of them fry things. Hopefully, it will work.
And lastly, I am disappointed because I cannot go to my cav howloween pawty. I have a turtle costume and everything! But my human family is going to a thing called a football game that day during the pawty. Like I told one of my cav buddies - I like foots, I like balls and I like games...why can't I go? It is some big deal I guess. They keep talking about Buzz. What is Buzz? Is Buzz a dog or a feline? He will be at this football game. Why does he get to go and I don't? Am I being replaced?

Oh boy, when mummy came home I got to go to WAGGY WORLD! I love to go there. We first went outside to do my business (and of course I kept my buddy in my mouth the entire time) and then after we came inside, mum got the mini keys and we got into the car.
Gosh, I love to ride in the mini. I was so excited that we were going in the mini that I wanted to sit in mum's lap whilst she was driving. She told me I could not do that and I got put into my seat. DARN.
Well, when I saw it was Waggy World we were at, I just was beside myselft! Tail wags all over and jumping up to thank her! We got into the play area and there were 4 really really small dogs and another one that looked the side of a bus I saw once only it was really small too. Then there was Hogan who was an old man and he could not hear but we played and ran and he barked at me. Gosh I was in my element! Everyone said I was such a handsome pup! (HELLO!!) And everyone asked if I was the sex and the city dog. WHAT??? What is that? I am the prince of alpharetta...a royal cavalier king charles....What the heck are they talking about?? Mum said yes to them too! She then told everyone that I was a cavalier. I guess she wanted to set the record straight on that one.
Oh yeah and today I am a BIG 8 month old! Mum says I am a big boy now! I heard her telling daddy that my fur is really coming in nice and that I am starting to lose my puppy face. My gorgeous face? I am losing my looks? Is that what she is insinuating? I need to know!!

It’s been a while since I was able to journal in my diary…it’s been busy around the palace lately!
It’s the usual routine…where I spend time in my royal x-pen and then it’s tail wags and kisses for mum when she comes home.
Well, on Thursday night it was daddy who came home early and he surprised me! I was catching up on my princely sleep when I heard him come in the door! WOW! I just love it when I get out of the x-pen early! But I was starting to worry because mum wasn’t around again!! Not to worry, she came home and she had taken my buddy and his detached horn and ear and must have operated on him because he was all better. I was so happy to see my buddy! I immediately grabbed him and carried him all over to show him the palace in case he forgot what it looked like.
Then on Saturday it was Daddy’s birthday! My human brothers came to visit and so did Will! I was licking and tail wagging my big brother Steve in the face and he kept petting me. I even took him toys so he would play with me and he kept throwing them and I kept running after them! Then WILL ran into the house and we had the bestest time! We kind of fought but it was play fighting and everyone was laughing at us. What is so funny? And why did everyone say we looked like 2 rams fighting? What’s a ram? Is that a good thing?
Everyone went out and Will went into my crate and I got the royal x-pen with my buddy. Will had his elephant but he could not free him like I can free buddy from the prison that is the royal x-pen. I threw buddy out and freed him and Will just looked at him like he was jealous. Will and I just stared at each other until everyone came back to the palace.
Then, Will and I went outside and we ran circles again. We love to run circles around the grass. It is fun! But it is getting a little bit cold outside now. My tender paws don’t like the cold!
Afterwards we came inside and Mom and Will’s daddy (Mike) had a thing called a pirate costume that they made Will put on. He was not so happy at first and everyone said he was “cute”. I think he was shocked and appalled at first! He was so upset that he ran to daddy and peed on his leg! He told me that was to get back at them for dressing them up. Well, wouldn’t you know it but then a TURTLE costume goes on me! ARGH! I started slinking and Will was laughing at me! Mom said Will and I will get pictures taken. UH OH!!!
Will did not spend the night and neither did Mike. I was kinda lonely, but I got to sleep with mum and dad (and Misa). And yesterday, I got to go for a long walk around the palace grounds! That was fun and had a bunch of different smells. But it is still kinda cold on my delicate footsies!!! What is a prince to do?
