This is our new puppy. We called her “Jua” which is swahili for sun or sunshine. My wife’s father used to do a lot of business in Africa so that’s where the swahili came from and we figured it worked well because of the golden color of her fur and the fact that she brings a little ray of sunshine into our lives.
In case you’re wondering what kind of dog Jua is, she’s a Cavapoo – a king charles cavalier spaniel/toy poodle cross breed. Most cavapoos have the curly hair from their poodle parent. However, Jua is somewhat unusual in as much as she was the only straight haired dog in her litter.
She seems to be settling in quite well!
