In Dog Years, She’s Perfect.

Chloe just turned ten. And I don’t want to talk about it. I know what they say about dog years. Well, la la la la la with my fingers plugged in my ears to that! Here are some Chloe pix through the years…

The day she became ours:


She was the CUTEST puppy!!!


With her “big sister” Soho:


Fast forward a decade – and by the way, Soho is still the boss! (Thanks to Lori for the photo)


Dizzy adored her…


And so do all the chickens:


That time when the CE said “Why would we get another dog when the kids are grown and gone”. And then it turns out they’ve come home all these years just to be with Chloe:


She’s pretty good with grandkids, too:

James loves a Chloe pillow:


I just hope she lives forever. Happy Birthday, sweet girl!


Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.” – Milan Kundera

    Chloe has definitely been the rug that has pulled the room together in our home ever since she arrived. Hard to imagine how things would have been without her. And if any of you out there have just one friend for every ten that she has, let’s just say you must be living your life the way the good Lord intended.

    Happy birthday, sweet Chloe Meadow Dancer! I still remember bringing her to your home for the first time, feeding her bits of hot dog in the car ride from Somis up to Santa Barbara. And all of our fun walks as well! Wonderful memories!

    Happy Birthday Chloe! You are a kind, generous and beautiful being. I will always remember how you accepted our little Buster into your pack immediately and got along so well during his visits. We love everything about you! xoxoxoxo

    She certainly is a perfect 10. And apparently the only one in the family who ages externally.
