Claude with the maid and Mr. Drysdale
Claude was owned by Mrs. Margaret Drysdale (Harriet
MacGibbon), the befuddle, hypochondriac wife of banker Milburn
Drysdale (Raymond Bailey).
Mrs. Drysdale treated Claude as her own child. She was always
pampering the dog with expensive food and beauty parlor treatments.
She even pushed the dog about in a baby carriage.
Mrs. Drysdale once chastised her husband (who hated Claude) by
saying, "Claude senses every nuance of your rejection. I will
not have your sharp tongue undo three years of psychotherapy."
full name was Prince Claude of Burgundy. His girlfriend was Fifi.
