Introducing Sophie

This is our new Cavachon puppy Sophie.  A Cavachon is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise mix.  We brought her home yesterday and the entire family is totally in love.  I may be MIA on the blogs for the next week or so as I'll be taking care of this sweet little fur baby.  Ahhh the sleepless nights again, lol.
