Howdy folks, my name is Claudine. My best friend, Brynn, and I joined rescue, and we are glad to be where we are wanted!
You see, someone found us and took us to the shelter. The shelter found out we had microchips so they called our owners. But they never came to get us! So here we are in rescue and everyone loves us.
We are not sisters, but best friends who have lived together a long time. We would like to stay together if possible, but we understand if that can’t happen.
I am the thin fawn and white one. I am very sweet and love everybody and all dogs I have met. I am in pretty good health for a girl my age—that’s why I don’t mind telling you I am seven.
Brynn is the all white one and she is a little chunky compared to me. She has some problems with one of her eyes, but the people at the clinic say they will have it better in no time. Brynn is also very sweet and loves everyone. She may be a little more playful than I am. She is also seven.
We we are just going to sit back, relax and enjoy a little gal’s time together. Once everything is checked out and fixed, we will be off to our foster home, and then our forever home in no time. Wouldn’t you love to have both of us at your house?
8/2/19 Update: Hello everyone, Claudine here with an update. I’ve been at my new foster home for a couple of days now and things are going really well. I have a new nickname, they call me Dini for short and I think it suits me fine. I’m here with former foster Tory Burch and another fur brother and they are each showing me the ropes.
I am just as sweet as can be, I get along with everyone I have met, and the dogs as well. I have some stiffness in my legs but I don’t let that stop me. We’ve been hanging out watching tv and grilling steaks- I don’t have any complaints!!
8/15/19 Update: Hey everyone, Claudine (Dini) here. Sorry I missed the party on Saturday. Sure looks like it was a great event.
Well, I have found my calling… as a lifeguard. I love to sit and stare at the pool for as long as I can, and if you are swimming, I will jump in and try to rescue you. Needless to say, I am the one that keeps getting rescued… I didn’t say I was a good swimmer, just a good guard. Foster mom and dad have started putting me in the house when they swim because I have been way too eager to join in the fun.
I am settling in really well. I pretty much know where and when to do my business, but sometimes that means that I have to wake the foster parents up at 2 a.m. They tell me they would rather get a wake-up call than a smelly surprise in the morning.
What’s that you just said? Oh, you’ll have to speak up. You see, if you are calling me, you really need to be in my field of vision because I am hard of hearing. And not just a stubborn Bulldog selective hearing either. I had some bad ear infections in the past, and I want to listen intently, but if I’m not coming when you call, please don’t take it personally. I usually just follow my other fur siblings when they are called, and I haven’t missed a meal yet:.)
8/26/19 Update: Hello everyone! Claudine here, checking in. I hope everyone had as good of a week as I did. I got to spend a few days at the spa at Dr Larsen’s and, boy, do I feel so much better. All of the pollen in the air was playing havoc on my skin and I was very itchy. After a couple of fancy baths, I am so relieved and more comfortable. I am home at my foster family’s home and they keep telling me how much happier I look. They keep saying that my personality is really showing through, now that I am not so preoccupied with my skin.
I love feeding time, sometimes I get so excited that I bark with excitement over the cuisine being served. I’m not picky, any treat will do.:) There is some meat stew in the slow cooker, and every time foster mom gives it a stir, I make sure I am front and center, just in case she drops anything…but she never has, yet! That is me in the kitchen dreaming of some tasty treats.
I have made piece with the Roomba (you know, those crazy robot vacuums). I didn’t like it at first, but now I just let it do it’s job and sleep right through the cleaning cycle. In my day, we didn’t have any of those newfangled machines, lol!
That is all for now- see y’all soon, Claudine
9/10/19 Update: I am so excited, I just got a new toy! I love it and I’ve been playing with it for over an hour and, boy, am I happy. It really is just the little things in life that can make your whole day. Foster Mom had a friend visit this weekend and she was so loving. I got extra rubs and pets. I hope we have more visitors soon. I am really warming up to everyone and am liking being stroked and petted more and more. I sure home my forever family likes giving rubs. Take care… I have a toy that needs my attention! Claudine
10/1/19 Update: Here we go again!! Dianne brought this great Bullie to my house and said “Here she is.” Claudine or Baby Girl as I call her took over.
She doesn’t bark much but can out chortle any dog. She is deaf and has eye sight problems as well as being arthritic but gets around great. She is never far from me. Baby Girl lies under my computer when I am working at home and where ever else in the house we are other times.
Baby Girl is doing pretty good at the house breaking thing, although doesn’t understand what the big deal is. She loves going to Lauren’s house for doggy day care and hangs with Lauren’s Dane, Butters. They take their afternoon nape on the couch together. Loves her toys but is death to all balls, no matter what size they are.
Mostly she is loose in my bedroom at night sleeping near me and sometimes in her crate. She goes in her crate when I go to work and back in it if she gets home before I do. I talked to her all of the time and looks at me like I am insane. Treats are common place and demanded at times.
She is in charge and has brought love into both our lives.
