Well I lost one of my best friends on friday 4/10/09. My mommy brought us over on thursday night so we could say good bye. At first I did not know what was going on when at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday night when my mom hung up the phone with my MorMor (grandma) and she was crying. What was going on? She asked us if we wanted to go to MorMors and of course we all got excited, but she was not her usual happy cheerful "lets go" self. Well I knew why when we got there when we came in the house and my bud Chloe was not at the door with the rest of the dogs waiting for us. But when she saw my mommy she got up and stumbled a couple of times and I got scared. My mommy started crying again, and ran over to her to help her and hold her. My mom lifted her on to the couch where she was cuddling her when I went over and smelled her and put my head on her back. You know being a dog we can smell when things are not okay and I knew. We stayed for a while and then we left, and my mommy cried the whole way home.
My mom said that Aunt Chloe was having a bad time, and was not eating, and if she did eat that she could not keep it down. Also her balance was really bad. We were all hoping she was just in one of her down moments, and would bounce back like she has done a few times, but it was not to be. My mommy told us that the brain tumor has taken over and Chloe could no longer fight. But my mom told us that she had enough strength to go to the park were we used to go all the time and smell aroung for the final time, before she went to the vet. My mommy also said that Chloe went peacefully and that she did not suffer at all.
I will miss my Aunt Chloe a lot we were sisters only a year apart. My mom told me when she was eighteen she went to the shelter and looked at all the puppies and Chloe was the only one who came up and stuck her paw through the chain link. She said she knew then that she had to have her. We lived together for a couple of years and went to work with mom at the dog day care everyday for a long time, and we got to go places all the time. Then my mommy and daddy moved in together so my mom left Chloe with my MorMor. Because my dads dog who I was raised around since a baby (my sister) Indy, who my mom said was a little dominant of adult dogs picked on Chloe. And my mommy said that Chloe was a little lamb, and she did not want her to have to deal with it. Well when my sissy Indy (at ten due to aggresive cancer)passed away, and my mommy was going to take Chloe to come live with us, but our MorMor asked her if she could just stay with her. So my mommy decided that it would be best since I still got to see Chloe a few times a week, and Chloe could stay in the house she was raised in. We still went to the park together and we still got to play all the time.
Chloe was the one who raised me to be who I am, taught me to follow my mom, showed me how to play, and was one of my best friends. I love her very much and she will always be in my heart and my mommies.
