Chloe, I don't know how I've survived this long without you. I remember the emptyness and sadness I felt when you were first gone, but more I remember the happy-happy times we had when you were young. Chasing squirrels as they ran along the telephone lines strung between our house. Walking you and the little boy with giant glasses that would run out of the house to grab you around the neck and hug you. He must be a grown man now. All the rushed trips home from work to let you out at lunch. I never wanted you to be in the house more than 4 hours with a break. Then we finally just got you your own door and you loved it. I still went home though, I just wanted to see you. Now is these last few months we have lost Ivy and Chopper too and we are alone and all the sad feelings are back. I know that your memories will somehow pull me through but having lost Chop just a few short days, yes 4 days ago. All the sadness is back. But I must say that I remember you fondly and hope to see you all soon. Love Dad.

I still remember the days of you being here like yesterday. Never any trouble really, well behaved from the start, gentle, loving, always a happy girl... I see your pictures around the house and remember you and playing ball in the back yard till my shoulder would hurt, watching you "eyeball" the squirrels and bounce up and down in the front window as the kids went off to school each day. I remember those first days when I was on my own, all alone after you were gone and how awful it was. Then Chopper came and he was so much trouble. I compared him to you all the time and then I learned not to. Now my buddy is ailing and I must take care of him. Ivy is 17 yrs old and they both need me the way you needed me. I promise you I will do a better job for them because of the things I learned from you. Rest in peach my precious girl. There will never be another you.

I still miss you each and every day Chloe. I must feel now the way you felt then, old and tired. Sometimes I just want to give up but I haven't yet. I hope you are free from pain and running after a tennis ball the way you used to love to do. I just thought of you and our mornings together today and remembered what to today was and how much I miss you. One day, perhaps soon, we will play together in "our" back yard once again. I still love you. Dad.
