Yes, she was the family dog. Chloe’s family just happened to include anyone she ever met.

Of course, she was loyal first and foremost to her clan.

But she loved and was loved by so many others. Friends, friends of friends, neighbors and whomever she met on the street that day. Chloe radiated calm and peace and acceptance and joy. So much joy.


She was unfailingly gentle with smaller creatures.

She looooooved her toys.


She loved her siblings of every species.

Especially the Tart. Soho is lost without her.

We are lost without her, too. She was always on the kitchen step. Always next to our bed. Always in the back seat of the car. Always right next to us. Always.


The CE called her his wingman. No walk will ever be the same without her.


So much sadness. So many tears. She tried, up to the last moment, to be there for us. So much heart. Such a good, good, girl. She will be loved and missed forever.


“In one of the stars I shall be living

In one of them I shall be laughing

And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing

when you look

at the sky all night”

    Even though I saw her less and less after my moves out-of-state, she always remembered me and gave her unconditional love…I miss her dearly. She had a wonderful life and will be missed by many. xoxo

    I don’t know how I missed this earlier, but what a tribute. And to see her with all of her flock and loved ones: even Tiny and Buster. Rest easy, Wingwoman. Tell my boy I love him….A

    The passing of these members of the family is so painful… but memories of their love enrich the rest of our lives (after the worst of the grief is gone).

    God grant that we get to enjoy their company again when he makes the new heavens and the new earth.

    She was a beautiful dog with such a gentle heart and definitely loved by everyone who met her. It’s still hard to believe she is gone. I will always remember her lifeguarding skills at the pool as my girls swam… she was always keeping an eye on them. She will be missed but never forgotten.
