Claudi's life as a CC

I know, this blog is mostly to track Natara's life with us, but she is away with Stef and Bethany for a few days and so I thought I would write about miss Claudi..
(The house feels empty with only 4 dogs and 1 person!)

She was CCed last week for some health issues (we saw this coming for some time) and boy is she living the life!

Yesterday we went to my work (dog daycare) and played all day long with dog friends and then her "boyfriend", Owen came home to stay with us for a week...

Today-back to daycare for a 6 hour play date with many many boyfriends-including MYL CC Riley (Astro/Daria)..

Tonight...a visit from my parents (oh you should see the whole body wiggles and hear the sounds!!) and then some playtime with before mentioned boyfriend Owen and 8 month old lab sister Sidney!

Then bedtime on my bed--with her head on the pillow and all...It's rough to be a newly CCed girl--with 10 new PINK collars, but it suits Claudi very well!!
Claudi says it is time for her dinner!:)

Natara's First Day Photos

Natara's First Day with us--July 26, 2008...

The Perfect Little Emmy/Claudi Face! She looks like Emmy from the front and Claudi from the side! Holly and Simon must be in their too:)

Playing with her Pet sister, Sidney, already...She had no fear of our 3 other dogs-she walked into the house like she owned it!

I think she is going to fit in...and she even slept for 6 hours last night :)

Ogden Photos

Ogden went to his new raiser home today...Stef and Bethany were very sad, but it sounds like he will do very well with them...We can't wait to see him at Fun Day!! He is going to be such a cute dog!!

Guide Dogs For The Blind "Simon" Girls

What the heck-we are just about to start on our 4th Simon puppy-3rd Simon girl-so why not start blogging about it?

Bethany raised Simon-aka "Mr Perfect"..

Then being her roommate, I decided to join in on Simon's first liter and helped raise THE most perfect PRINCESS and Guide Dog ever my Emmy "monkey"..

After Emmy we raised Claudine-who just got CCed for health issues and now lives with us and her 2 pet dog sisters.
Then came Mr Ogden whom we convinced our 3rd roommate to join in on and we quickly discovered he was just too laid back to really fit into our all female household..

We are now getting ready to welcome Simon puppy # 4 "Natara"..
