Arrival Story: Caroline is the best $60 mutt ever! I adopted her from the city pound in Chicago. I went looking for an adult dog, but at 15 weeks of age, Carrie was the best behaved...she was just waiting patiently in her cage and I almost walked past her. When I took her out for a 'test drive' she went crazy, running with another puppy and smothering me with kisses. I took her home the next day, and the rest is history!!!
Bio: Caroline is proud to be a mutt. Her ears look like black, velvety tostitos. Neil Diamond wrote "Sweet Caroline" for her. She loves to go hiking and camping. She does not like swimming, as water is scary, cold, and wet. She misses the snow back in Chicago and her dream is to visit Meemaw and Papi in Buffalo during winter so she can play in snow and chase deer. Her favorite places to go are the beach (for the sand, not the water), the dog park, and her crate. This summer she took a road trip with mommy all the way from LA to Detroit and back again. She got a little sick of the car after a while and was scared on those mountain passes, but camping, seeing old friends, and Meemaw and Papi made it all worthwhile!
I rode in the car a lot today! At first, I had to wait in the car while Mom went inside a house to feed a cat. That sucked. But then Mommy took me with her to USC, and I got to visit the nice lady in the office that says I'm pretty and good!! The elevator up to the 10th floor was scary so I hid behind Mom and some other lady. After we said hi to people, I got to chase squirrels around campus and a lot of people stopped to watch me because I'm so damn cute. After that, I was tired and I didn't mind waiting in the car while Mommy fed ANOTHER cat...filthy, poop-in-box furballs.
On Sunday, mommy took me and Cooper to pick out a foster brother. We liked Hank, a basset hound, and brought him home with us. I love Hankie a lot, but I also love having my mommy to myself, and I want to see him go to a good home! If you want a really sweet basset hound, check out Hankie's page! He's part of 'my family,' and he also wrote a looooooong diary entry (must be because he's a basset; everything has to be long with him!).
Hi! My name is Caroline, and I'm a beautiful Doberman mutt. I have pretty colors and long legs, and f I were human, I would be a Brazilian supermodel! I'm no princess, though...I love running, hiking, camping, and chasing squirrels. I live with my mom, my two uncles, and my mutt-cousin Cooper. He farts a lot.
I love my grandparents, Meemaw and Papi, and I get really excited when they come to visit!! My favorite treat is rawhide, and my favorite toy is a frisbee, and I like all toys!
Well, now you know a little bit about me. I love making new friends, and I love to give high fives!
