Claire has been in our family now for about 14 months. In some ways it really doesn’t seem like it could have been that long. Having three has been wonderful. At first I was overwhelmed and sleep deprived. It was tough getting in to a new routine with Claire’s habits. But she has really made a very positive difference in doggy dynamics here. She plays well with both Kallie and Catcher even though those two rarely play together. She gets along great with both of them and I can see that they enjoy having her in the family. She and Catcher are major buddies and she pretty much looks to him to guide her regarding what to do.

Also, she has really blossomed in to such a pretty girl. When I got her at 7 months she had a lot of tear staining and her facial hair and ears were on the short side. I cut out all the tear staining and it has grown back in white. I’m not sure why she had the staining as she was finished with teething but for whatever reason it’s gone now!

Just so you can see how much they can change as they mature,
here are a couple older photos . . .

This is a picture from the breeder before I got her:



Here is one not long after she joined our family.




The next 3 were taken today:




She really isn't fat! She has extraordinarily thick hair .. tons of it!




This was taken at the end of March. (Bow by Marj at M'Lady's Dog Bows)

Sher, You've deprived us of this beauty too long. Claire has grown into such a pretty girl. I'm in awe of you being able to handle three. Sometimes my two are overwhelming. I'm so glad Claire fits into your household so well. She certainly makes a lovely addition.

Oh, thanks!! I got the idea of cutting out the stains from you and how great Rain looked once they were cut!



Sher, she is stunning!!!
Thank you so much!!

Thanks, Reva. Three really isn't too hard. It's a challenge taking them all to the groomer's as they get so excited, etc. but at home they are really easy to manage.



Claire is stunning! :D
Oh, thanks so much!

Thanks, Paula!! The 2nd face close up is my favorite. It really captured how she looks.



What a gorgeous girl Claire is, she was a beauty when you got, but now is just Wow!! She has just blossomed under your care and love.
Oh, thank you! I appreciate it!! She is such a pleasure to be around. A real sweetheart.



awww! she's gorgeous!
Thanks so very much!!!
