If there was any doubt that Chloe is the most popular member of the household, there is none now. The other day Shaun and I were walking down the street with Chloe and Connor when someone whom neither of us recognized said “Oh look, it’s Chloe.”

Of course this is not the first time that a stranger seemed to know Chloe by name, it happened before when we used to live in Texas. It could be that we’ve met people who remember Chloe, but whom we have subsequently forgotten, or maybe Chloe does some self-promoting from the window when we aren’t home. Almost all the children in our street know Chloe and come running to pet her if she’s out while they are playing. None of those children know our names, it’s all “Chloe! Chloe!” Fortunately she basks in the attention.

I am sure when we move to Alaska, Chloe will make her rounds so that everyone in the neighborhood will know who she is – maybe some of that Chloe charm will rub off on shy  Connor, who was most recently referred to simply as “the black dog” by our neighbor’s daughter. In the meantime remember this face, folks. She may not be a superstar, but sometimes she sure gets treated like one.

  1. I am rolling on the floor laughing so hard right now at these pictures! At least Chloe’s shoes match her scarf! Now that is one truly accessorized dog! I am going to laugh all weekend (and smile too) as these photographs just made my day!

  2. So glad you got a laugh out of this. 🙂
