Lindsey Hammers (‘12) This is Charlie. He is a mix between a poodle and a shitzu and he is 11 years old. Charlie was actually given to me by one of my favorite professors at CU: Susan Blevins. He is a true lap dog and loves every person he meets. Charlie perks up at the mention of a ride or walk and he is really good at getting whatever he wants with his puppy dog eyes. Not too shabby of a dresser either as you can see from his Christmas bow tie. He is the best dog.
Randy Dill (‘73) Our toy schnauzer “Basil” (now going on 10 years) has a most mischievous personality and still acts like he’s a puppy. He is beyond spoiled rotten and usually gets his way!
Jenni Owen (‘14) Gus is feisty and a ball of energy most of the time. Here he is trying to catch snowflakes as they pass the window. He is named Gus after my favorite character in my most loved childhood film, “Cinderella”.
Franzeya Choate (Childress) (‘19) Moxie is a miniature pincher with a big dog personality. She loves snuggling with her momma, chasing cats, and making the neighborhood think she’s bad. However, she can’t go to bed without her monkey and giving her momma kisses. She loves going on walks, and getting all of her squeaky toys out of her doggy basket and making her momma pick them up. Moxie found me in April of 2019!
