Chloe was a family dog for a few years before my daughter Paige moved out and took Chloe with her, which was appropriate because they had become a fully bonded pair. She then became my granddog. We got to hang out together frequently. Chloe would stay with me every time Paige travelled. Tango and Jazz just ADORED Chloe, and would snuggle with her, try and get her to play, wanted to be wherever she was, and each chi would sometimes even try and chase their sibling off so they could be the only one with Chloe.

Here she is with my daughter, at the time a gap toothed 10 year old, shortly after we rescued Chloe.


And a more recent one of them together:


She stayed with me back in 2010 when Paige was on her honeymoon.



She spent more than one Halloween with me and my dogs.


I'm so glad I have many pictures of her together with Tango and Jazz. The last batch I took were a couple of years ago. Here are a couple of artsy ones that I particularly like, and that I had framed. They've been sitting on my desk since then, so I get to look at them fondly every day.



She's been slowing down for several years now, and this last year had a variety of ailments, nothing life threatening but her age was definitely showing--she was 14. The last month has been rough, and by this last week it was obvious she wasn't long for this world. She had renal failure, and passed away peacefully on Saturday night, in my daughter's arms, after everyone got to say goodbye.

Chloe was family. This is very hard.

I sometimes watch my daughter with Kalisee and think of how they will be growing up together just like your daughter did with Chloe. Chloe had a wonderful life and was very well cared for and loved. I am sorry it ended but I am glad for you that you have so many wonderful memories to cherish.

For you and chloe

I think this is so beautiful,had to share with you and your loss.

IF I SHOULD GROW FRAIL

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain does keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done
for this - the last battle -can't be won.

You will be sad I understand
But don't let grief then stay your hand.
For on this day, more than the rest
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.

Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.

Don't grieve that it must now be you
Who has to decide this thing to do.
We've been so close - we two -these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Sending thoughts and prayers!

I ONLY WANTED YOU

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

I was very sad to read your post but Choloe was obviously a very well loved dog. Peace to her. I hope there are many happy memories for you and your daughter to relive in the years to come.

Thank you all so much for your condolences. Chloe was a very well loved dog, that's for sure, and is greatly missed. It's particularly difficult because Paige's 18 month old little boy/my grandson River obviously misses her and asks after her, walking around saying "Mo-Mo?" No matter what he's told, he's too young yet to be able to comprehend that his Mo-Mo isn't coming back. :(

He would often curl up in Chloe's bed with her....or sometimes on her :) Chloe never minded, and would shift to make room, even when she was very, very sick and obviously uncomfortable.


Giving Chloe kisses.

Oh Ronni, seeing those pictures of River and his Mo-Mo brought on the
waterworks again. What a sweet boy. I'm so sorry your family is going
through this. It's so difficult and sad. Nothing helps but time unfortunately,
but if you want to talk I'm here. Hugs sweetie.
