Chloe's Home

Chloe's Home! We had a very good first night! Chloe's slept in Emily's room and didn't whine or bark at all! Sarah was afraid she might, but we did good. Emily said the weirdest part was waking up in the night to find Chloe sitting up staring at her!



Poor Chloe had a bad night Friday before we got her. Sarah had to take her to the emergency room because she finally had had it with her bandage and chewed it off, so she had to take her to the emergency room and have the stitches checked and get an e-collar. Oh she looked so sad when we picked her up! But we found if we are with her she only goes to lick them a few times, so we can take the collar off if we are around to watch her. So she only needed to sleep with it on.

And Chloe is already like velcro to me and Emily! She has behaved so well considering the stress from the spaying and a new home and people. What a wonderful weekend this is!

What a pair! Chloe looks and sounds as though she's fitting into your lives just fine! What would there be for her to whine about?!?

Glad you all found one another. Very sweet. Good thing animals are so forgiving of what we put them through.

Fantastic Dawn! Emily and Chloe seem like they're good friends already. It is a bit weird waking up and finding someone (yes dogs are people too!) staring at you!

I am glad it is going so well. Chloe obviously has a lovely temperament :)

what a great photo of dog and girl...I am sure all will be happy now that Chloe is part of the family

Glad everything is going well!! What we don't realize is that dogs and cats can detect the slightest change in our breathing and when they see us waking up even slightly they come to greet us...thus waking up and seeing a dog staring at you. Or in my case, a cat sitting 2 inches from my face!!

Your daughter looks thrilled! Here's to a long friendship!

I think every teenaged girl should have an adoring and loyal pet that she just loves to pieces right back. Chloe and Emily look like a good match!

Cheers!
