Cavalier Love - Leslie Brier, Brier Design

We are enjoying one of the most beautiful shows of fall color that we've had in a long time. I thought this would be a good time to introduce you to our cavalier king charles spaniels, Marilyn Merlot and Brigitte Bordeaux.

They love to go out and run in the leaves. Sometimes they blend in so well that it's hard to see them when I first look out into the yard!

This is Merlot. She's three years old, but already acts like a little old lady. She loves her naps, and loves to cuddle. She is extremely laid back, and doesn't even bark when someone comes to the door. She does bark at the evil squirrels and kitties that sometimes come into her backyard territory however!
This is Bordeaux. She just turned two, but is stil full of puppy energy! She runs everywhere, because walking just takes too darn long. She spends a good part of her day pawing at me and then looking longingly at the treat jar. In the world of dog shows, her white markings would be considered a fault, but I think they are beautiful.

Both of my girls are great companions for me. They sit at my feet when I'm at the computer, and nap nearby when I'm in the studio. And a game of fetch is always a good remedy for artist's block. They have brought so much joy to our family.
