Well, At Least I Finally Got A Girl
October 13, 2008
Meet our newest family member, Chloe.
Friday, J called me at work to tell me that he had, “the cutest things” following him around. It seemed that one of his co-workers had stopped to get gas before her afternoon shift, and came back to her car to find two tiny flea-infested puppies cowering under her car, apparently abandoned by some douchebag looking for a sucker. He described them as blue heeler/beagle mixes. He went on to explain that both puppies had already been spoken for, otherwise, he would bring one home. I breathed a sigh of relief at this news. We already have 2 dogs, so we really didn’t need any more.
His next phone call was to inform me that plans for a home for one of the puppies had fallen through. Another co-worker had asked him to take the puppy to her home for her, as she wasn’t due to get off work for several hours. Upon arrival, her husband was less than thrilled with their new addition, and flat refused to take it, leaving J with posession of the doggy.
“I have to take her home, I can’t just leave her on the side of the road”, he told me, “We’ll just keep her until we can find her a good home”.
“Yeah, ours”, I thought, as I heard our boys in the background asking, “what are we going to name her”?.
By the time I arrived home, minutes later, the little furball was christened, “Chloe”, after the lead character in “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”.
She is a cutie, and already has a special place in our hearts. The boys adore her, and the feeling is mutual. She follows them around everywhere, and they check up on her constantly. We let her come in the house some, and she promptly curls up on someone’s lap, or in a quiet spot, for a long nap.
We have actually had an offer by someone to provide her a good home, but it ain’t happening. She already has one………….ours.
