Welcome & Hello Chloë!

Just adorable...Can't help looking at that face!
Announcement everyone! A new family member has joined us! We've just adopted another beautiful 10 months old Golden Retriever! She's got a big build, kind & gentle, good natured, cream in color, has very thick but soft fur, kinda like almost look like a bear, she has Richard Gere's eyes & is show potential.

At first I named her Anna Clare, then it became Clare, but my father said that Clare's a bit old fashion so he suggested Anna-Lea, then my mother suggested Leah, but I didn't like any of them except Anna Clare but then surprisingly, my brother who knows nothing about girls' names came out with a very sweet, kinda like a princess's name; Cloe. We all loved it until my mom came out with another name, Zoe, which sounded like a old woman's name...But we stuck to Cloe after that. We did a little research on the net to find out what this name, Cloe means. It actually means like a 'blooming flower' in Greek & indeed Cloe is! But then I changed the spelling from Cloe to Chloë with two dots above the letter 'e'. It makes it extra special...

Anyway, the reason why her previous owners gave her up was because they have two very young children & unfortunately, Chloë has knocked one of them down accidentally & caused a very big cut on the child's arm. Well, can't blame her right, what does she know? She's just a friendly dog & that's her way of greeting people...So on that day forward, she was left outside everyday with little human & dog interaction in a huge garden. She also stank & was a little bit filthy when we got her coz she always got wet from the rain & her undercoat never got dried properly. We gave her owners our telephone numbers & they kept on calling & calling us to take her like right now, "ASAP!!!" or straight she goes to SPCA. So we were like, what a waste for such a beautiful Golden to be chucked there...So, we adopted her on that very day.

It was love at first sight! She's just a Bonnie little Chloë...But ofcourse, nothing is stopping me from loving my two other dogs especially my precious Amber-Mae. Now that we have three dogs, there's more work to be done. Thinking of entering her for the Conformation Show in the Bitch Puppy category this coming March. But no guarantee that she can become a Champion that's for sure.

Just one big doggie-happy family...

wow, chloe (with two dots) is surely a cutie... just like me! oh well, i mean amber.

the story for her name is funny but not for chloe's background! oh, i hope i will like my mama future baby. or else i'll end up like chloe (with two dots).

chloe is only 10 months old? i think her previous owner should really consider before getting chloe. poor thing! i hope she gets use to her new name soon.

are we gonna hear more from her?

Oh CONGRATS CONGRATS!!!

Chloe is boootiful and she sure is a blond beauty.

Have you entered Amber in the confromation dog show?? I think she would do well.

Do you need any registrations for conformation shows over there? Or any dog can be entered?

You know, a Malaysian judge came over to judge the Best In Show at Canada's biggest dog show. Well, he gave my boyfriend, Solo, a Giant Schnauzer BIS!! That was Solo's BIS #57!!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Heya Miss Sunshade!

Amber's not qualified to enetr the Conformation Show coz her hip point is out, her fur is out coz thin, she's underweight and abit too large for a female. Not even Faith is qualified coz she's a miniature Dalmatian, her tail curls & when she walks, she tends to bounce.

Chloë's the only one who's suitable for the Conformation show. Those who want to enter their dogs for these shows need to pay quite a price. For those who are MKA members would only need to pay abit but for those who are not, need to pay quite alot!

Haha, I don't know any Malaysian judges here. Oh what's a BIS #57???

it seems like u really like golden

Molly said...

i can see cloe size is very big. how old is amber btw? look like a bit bigger than elder amber?

Melissa-Jane said...

Totally love Goldens!!! But ofcourse there are other dogs that I would love to get some day...The next, will be an Irish or English Setter!

Melissa-Jane said...

Yeah Chloë's big but if you shave her, she's still smaller than Amber. Nobody can beat Amber's size! But in terms of bone structure, they are quite big like Amber's but she's lighter than Amber by 3kg. And Amber's very slim but Chloë's chubby.
