In loving memory of Chloe Scarlett our beautiful, beloved "Wissa-P" who we will love and adore forever and who is always with us in our hearts. Chloe came into our lives on October 5, 2008. We fell in love with her instantly because of her sweet personality. She always tried to play with her toy poodle brother and he eventually grew to accept her, despite their size difference. We loved to watch her "shuffle" in and out of rooms and run down the stairs sounding like a herd of elephants. She was always happy.Never a day in her life did she ever not want to be part of the action or play. Every morning she greeted me with a wagging tail. She always had to then find something to carry around in her mouth. Her appetite had no bounds- eating everything from table scraps, to nonedible items like scrunchies, socks, and once even checks and money. She ate my birthday cake one year too. It took Chloe a while to realize she loved to swim but once she discovered it, she loved it. I even found her one morning swimming in the pool. She was every dog's friend and was the sweetest girl in the world. She had a very deep bark when she encountered any stranger but was always kind and gentle. You could always tell when she was startled or apprehensive by the way the hair stood up on her back. She loved to go for rides in the car always barking at every dog along the way.... and oh how she LOVED to sit on the couch.

One day when she was just 3 1/2 she went for a check up at the vets because there was an odor to her breath. We went to see the vet on March 6, 2012. The vet scheduled her for a dental cleaning but we did precautionary bloodwork even though this was optional because she was young . The next day she called me with the results-Chloe was in severe kidney failure. Because I couldn't believe this since she was acting so normally- we repeated the bloodwork, but it was confirmed. The only explanation I have is the possibility that it was a medication for incontinence that Chloe was taking in a miniscule dose that I tapered down from the original dosage prescribed. I immediately discontinued this. I spent the next 2 months adjusting her diet, mostly learning how to make homemade food for a kidney diet- lots of liquids, broths, low protein additives. Her levels improved a bit and Chloe continued to have a good appetite, but I noticed her energy level slowly start to dwindle, frequently taking naps. About May 4, 2012, Chloe would no longer eat her kibble and was switched to the canned kidney diet which she enjoyed. However within a week, she grew tired of that as well, and on May 11, 2012, she completely stopped eating almost everything. Over the weekend, she grew more and more lethargic, her eyes barely able to stay open for any length of time. I could not see her suffer any longer. Chloe was buried May 14, 2012 in a pet cemetery overlooking a beautiful lake. I wrote to the FDA to alert them to my suspicion that this drug caused probable hypertension and destroyed my Chloe's kidneys. At the very least, kidney function tests should be monitored in dogs on this medication. I continue to miss her terribly every day of my life. Life will never be the same without you baby girl. I will love you till the end of time.....

Nothing cuter in the world than the way Chloe sat. We called it the "Chloe sit"

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.”
