I found this picture buried on my camera's memory card yesterday. It was taken in our backyard one summer evening just as the sun was starting to get lower in the sky. Despite all the shenanigans Chloe is capable of, I still find her face absolutely breathtaking sometimes. I'm not sure she'll ever lose her 'puppy' ways, and even though there are days when I wish she would just settle down, I have to admit I'm not sure I want her to. (Now all we need is a rambunctious child to pair with our crazy four-legged and the two can chase each other around until the street lights come on. Or perhaps I better be careful what I wish for!)
Any of you have a four-legged, or other creature in your life that you just can't imagine living without? One that drives you nuts yet has weaseled their way into your heart? I was very fond of my first-ever goldfish when I was seven, and sobbed for hours the day he had to swirl his way down the toilet to fishy heaven.
