Chloe Writes


It's Slice of Life Tuesday!
Join us at Two Writing Teachers and have some fun.


"What's up?" I think, as I lift my head. "Someone's here. It can't be Mom or Dad, it's still light outside."
I decide I'd better check this out, so I slowly stand, stretch, and sniff as I make my way to the door.

It's her! It's her! Mom's home. I'm so excited I begin my happy dance in the kitchen. Mom puts down all her bags and gives me a big hug. I just wiggle all over I'm so happy.  

And then, the best thing of all. 

Mom changes her clothes and says WE'RE GOING FOR A WALK!

We haven't gone for a walk in a long time--not since, well, I really don't remember. She gets my leash and out the door we go.

I grab the leash in my mouth and head out on our usual path. I don't know what takes her so long, or why she walks so slow. I swear if I didn't take the leash, she'd never get out of the yard.

Anyway, once we finally get going, it feels really good to be outside and out of my yard. I really tug on the leash to get Mom moving a little faster. Doesn't work though.  She just doesn't understand all the things I have to check on while we walk.  There have obviously been some strange dogs and cats on my route. I can smell them all over the place. I wish I could meet some of them sometime. They smell pretty interesting. I bet we'd make good friends.

I also have to check out these rabbit tracks. They're starting to move back into the neighborhood. Can't let that happen 'cause they eat my apples. I hate it when they do that. Oh, oh, oh---I smell that squirrel that comes into my yard, sits in the tree and makes fun of me. I'll show him. When we get home, I'm going to try and dig up all his walnuts. That'll show him.

Gee, it feels so good to walk. Maybe Mom's right and I should slow down a little bit. If I go too fast, we'll get home too soon and then I'll have to stay in the house and I don't want that. It's too nice a day to stay inside. 


I can't wait for spring...

  1. Sweet Deb,
    I'm into the dog head: She just doesn't understand all the things I have to check on while we walk.
    More coming?

  6. Welcome back, Chloe! We've missed you. You and Max would get along so great together. He loves to pull on the leash and get me moving faster too. I think Max is gearing up for a couple of slices in March and we look forward to hearing more from you, Chloe!

  8. I always love hearing Chloe's voice, Deb! My favorite part was "she just doesn't understand all the things I have to check on while we walk" -- so funny! It reminds me of a story my mom always tells from my early childhood: it would take us a half hour to walk down the street, because I would stop and point at every bug, saying "Somebody's walking on!"

  9. I wish I had my own pet again to share stories. Have always loved the name of your post "Coffee With Chloe." Yes, keep the Chloe stories coming. I might write about my past pets for posts, including my yearnings for a new pet. Yes, Deb, we should support each other in our third try. Here's to a good challenge.

  10. I was just thinking that you hadn't posted in a while, Chloe. So happy for you that Deb took you out! And thank you Deb for recording for Chloe!

  11. Chloe would be good friends with Star, who is dozing beside me, hoping that her mother will stop writing and take her for a walk. It's not happening tonight(ten degrees and snowing), but she hasn't given up hope yet!

  12. I wish many more exciting walks for Chloe. So much to see, so much to do. The plan of revenge to squirrels made me chuckle.
