Posts Tagged ‘Personality’
One of the perks of getting a new puppy is that you get to name her. Chloe was a bit hard to name because her personality is so big that one name wouldn’t quite cover it all.
First of all, she doesn’t bark (or didn’t until this week), she chirps. Next is that she loves humans- all humans. All she wants is to follow humans around or lay by them if they are sitting, unless she wants to play with you (which feels more like fighting with her sharp little teeth). She will take other animals as a second choice and her best friend at my house is a cat, Tesla, that thinks he’s a dog and is a bit aloof. Chloe has made friends with him and they are wrestle buddies. Chloe’s other friend at my house is a long haired Chihauhau/Terrier mix, Gertie, and they play tag and wrestle.
Chloe gets the “monkey” middle name because she climbs like a monkey. The first day in our home she climbed the fence that was to contain her, we put her in a bigger fence where the bars were spread a bit further apart- and she climbed that. Today she climbed my jeans just like a cat. And she has no fear. Nothing, no one, no fear.
The princess in her name comes because she is a princess. Everything has to be her way and just right. She is intelligent enough to figure out how to get things to happen her way- and cute enough to pull it off. This has been a busy time since she arrived because she’s managed to wrap five adults around her paws and make them dance to her tune.
So, Miss Chloe Monkey Princess, you can sleep at the foot of the bed for the last time tonight because I don’t want to hear you chirp and wail our last night together, you just don’t like the thought of being in a kennel and humans not being in touching reach.
And tomorrow you’ll go to be a dog. We’ll be praying you find a forever home with a human that wants a smart, creative, determined, stubborn and very loving little monkey princess. We’ll pray that your new home will appreciate both your monkey talents and princess traits. And we’ll miss you.
UPDATE: Chloe Monkey Princess found a home with a 15 year old girl that totally appreciates her need for being a princess. Last time I saw her she was sporting a beautiful pink collar and wrapped in a pink blanket. From her throne in her Momma’s arms she threw me the “look at where I am now, pheasant” look and strode out of my life. LOL. Perfect home for you, Miss Chloe.
