11 Years gone by so fast

I've been so lucky to have shared my life with great pet friends. You Chlo are still my first ever only my dog and I will always love you for being there with me. I didn't really know what it took to take care of you, but I learned and you were tolerant and never doubted me. I remember so much still, even after you are gone 11 years, the times we spent together in the back yard, on walks around the old neighborhood, moving to a new neighborhood. I remember you "ate" a bed, window sills, dug a 3 foot hole in the back yard and took my dinner right off the grill. I laugh about them now. I mostly remember you were big and soft and so loving to me, spending Winter afternoons on the couch with me. When we moved it must have been traumatic for you, I never realized, and those new 7 deadly steps out the back door are still there. I still hate them. I still miss you, I still love you with all my heart and I will always. You know ... I really do still think of you everyday. I know there are days that it's just a passing memory but it is everyday. I hope to see you again. I really do. Just once more to feel that gentle muzzle on my shoulder. Love Dad.


The 10 year without Chloe

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.


The 9th year without you

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.

Love Daddy.

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.

I bet you thought I forgot... I might have but my heart won't let me. I think of you everyday and how gentle and soft you were. My heart still breaks at the loss of you and I can only hope that one day I will feel that warm muzzle against my neck and I can feel the way I used to feel. Ivy and Chopper are great companions but there will be forever only one Chloe for me. Love Dad.


The 6th year, everything changes.

Just before you went away, everything changed. I was at home happy to be with you until you were gone. Then I was alone, some more hurt came and went... then Chopper came and helped me by just being here. Now things have changed again. I am grateful that he and Ivy have each other through the day and I know that you are there to watch over them in spirit. I still think of you most everyday. Your picture is still everywhere and I do my best not to forget. The tree we planted as our last outdoor adventure blew over in a storm this week. I always called it "Chloe's tree". I feel more change is coming. I count on the things you taught me to get me through it. I still remember, miss and love you Chloe... especially today. Love Daddy.

It's been 5 years Chlo and still remembering you. So much has changed in life but so much of you is still here. I remember our last days and our first days as if they were yesterday. Your picture is still on the fridge and I still find bits of you around the house :) Your yard is well taken care of I think of you every mowing day. I remember how much you liked the back yard just after it was mowed. We miss you.

Dear Chlo,

I come here to mark the your passing. My life has changed so much and I am once again busy like when you first came. I so now wish for the chance to spend more of the time you were a puppy with you. You did such a great job of taking care of us that I didn't notice you were also taking care of yourself. You are the best of best and I miss and love you still. I remember you everyday but today especially I miss and remember you. I love you still. Dad.


Three years goneby

Today it has been three years since we last held our Chlo. The day still haunts me and it is truly one of the saddest times of my life. For now I try to keep Chlo's memory alive with me and remember little things about her. At about 7 years old she learned to talk. She would grumble at us and "roo" then at about 11 years she just became quiet again. We still had long conversations though. I still miss you stinkerbell, I guess I always will.


Two Years Gone Bye

It's been two long years since Chloe left us. So much has happened since then. Grandma Betty has left us and Ivy lives with us now. We remember how when you visited Grandma Betty and Ivy that you couldn't wait to leave because Ivy was such a pest to you. Well my dear sweatheart with Chopper around she is getting a little taste of her own medicine. They are so different from you as you were quiet and retiring, steadfast, gentle and mindful. They are loud and the world is all about them. It's so different from sharing my quiet days with you. I miss you still to the point it hurts. I love you my little "stinkerbell".
