Klardyn aka Klara, Zulu, Zulie and Zuligan
First… The story behind Klaradyn’s name… I was in search for a pitch black girl and being on a waiting list, I waited a few months for her. I never name my dogs “just a nice name”; I wait for their names to be ‘given’ to me, so each one’s name has a very special meaning. The litter black puppies were born and I had to choose one, so I chose the one that had the most black fur but still I didn’t have a name for her.
At the same time, I was busy writing an article about our hearts that has to be clean and pure before the Lord for Him to use us for His purpose. Psalm 51:10 says: “Create in me a clean heart, o God, and renew a right spirit within me.” For a few days (or weeks) I wrote about this subject and one night I woke up in the early morning hours with the name ‘Klaradyn’ crystal clear in my mind. I searched on the internet what the meaning of the name was, and believe it or not… Klaradyn means: “Create in me a clean heart, o God”. I was overwhelmed by joy and I no longer had to wonder what my black girls name was, as the Lord already named her Klaradyn.
So Klaradyn is our pitch black girl with a heart of gold and her personality reflects the meaning of her name perfectly. She is a soft-hearted, friendly, loving, talkative and spirited girl. She has loads of energy and she LOVES to swim, which can be problematic as she taught herself to climb into a tree near the wall… she climbs like a baboon (and yes, then she REALLY looks like a baboon) high up in the tree until she is high enough to jump over the wall… and off goes Klaradyn… wandering through the sheep… taking herself for a nice swim in one of the dams. She is very submissive towards other dogs with no aggression at all.
Klaradyn is a real sweetheart, she loves being loved. She loves being the centre of attention… and the best part… she LOVES to lie on top of me with her head on my chest. What a special, special girl she is.
Oliver is usually dad of her puppies as their temperaments together form the most amazing, beautiful puppies with wonderful temperaments. The can be playful, wild, silly and very loving! She usually has 3-4 pitch black puppies as well as outstanding black and white puppies. Underneath are photos of Klara’s previous litters…
