I want to introduce my dog Kilian (yes, my “baby” is wearing a onesie and booties…don’t judge!). He is my little Irish pup. My gaggle of brothers said, “Hey, cool, you named him after a beer!” BEER? What beer (you can see how much I drink). He is named after an Irish saint: Saint Kilian! (They were on the floor laughing at me)!
He is an American cocker spaniel, but a lot of people think he is Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, due to his beautiful coloring. Cockers have more domed shaped heads and longer snouts, while Cavaliers have flatter heads and shorter snouts. They also typically have mellower personalities, while cockers (like my boy) are livelier…like when he zooms around the room while I am trying to watch TV. Like when launches himself off my lap, practically rupturing my spleen! Like when he barks ferociously at innocent little Shih Tzus (well some of their tails are a little squirrel-like, just saying).
