The last time we had time to sit and write…
it was Chloe’s birthday!!!
Since then Thibby turned 2 in March!!!
Take a look back at some
of the Thibbsters baby pictures
Such a handsome lad!
Then after the birthday month…
With May the temps start to rise
A nap in the A/C with Miss Bobo
As spring turned into summer the days became hotter and hotter
and harder to handle…
Both outdoor loving pups became A/C hounds.
Around the end of August
we started our move back home to the farm in Alabama…
Life at home is VERY
exciting and a lot of work for a young boy!
By the end of the day it’s hard to hold your head up your so tired!
(Thibby falls asleep with his head “propped” on Daddy’s chair)
Then right in the middle of it all
had to under go
She stayed with Dr. Mooring for a week then it was only leash walking for 3 more weeks…
At first, having to stay in the house was ,
in Chloe’s mind,
just absolutely awful…
(She has always loved outside)
Then we thought of the baby gate so she could be outside watching over her domain from the porch!
With the baby gate up,
Chloe on the porch and Thibby in the yard…
She directed “traffic”.
The least little “woof” from her
Thibby would jump to attention in order to see if something needed
They make quite a team!
Then Chloe finally got her first day off the leash in the yard!!!
Thibby was Sooo excited!!!
He had been wanting to
with his big sister so much!
Starting out a little slow and easing into it
she walked around the yard…
Then Miss Chloe took a rest…
Till the UPS truck pulled up
then she is out
fence in no time flat,
fussing and sending up a warning
just like old times!!!
We will stop here for now…
Thibby seems to think it’s a good time for petting…
We’ll see ya later
it’s time for my Daddy
to give me some
Oooh, yea I like a good
rubbin behind the ears!!!
Daddy, don’t quit
You can watch football later, Daddy…
Keep on pettin’ me now!!!
You sure you’re done???
Momma,… it’s your Turn to Pet

March 9th 2003
Bell’s Chlothilde Lagniappe
10 weeks old and her first night at home…..
Chloe’s first pool…
Boudy teaches her to play..
Chloe is 5 months old…
@ 6 months old Boudreaux
is still teaching her to walk the fence line while guarding the yard…
Chloe turned two among the daffodils…
The Princess loves to smell the flowers…
just like any little girl!
She loved her big “brother”
He was a good big brother and taught her well.
She mourned his passing as hard as we did.
Early that summer we were sent to New Hampshire
and Chloe got to walk on the beach for the first time.
Chloe is there to meet Michael when he first comes home…
She is such a calm and gentle pup,
just great with the little fellow!
Back in NH the brisk autumn winds and the “Beach Plums” ice cream found favor with Chloe.
December came with the first dustings of snow
and it was time to cut a Christmas tree…
Chloe's Koi Pond froze…
And when the snow began
it snowed and snowed and…
Chloe LOVED the COLD & the SNOW…
It was very hard to get her to come inside!
Then there’s the story of Chloe and Her lime sherbet…
(and Daddy thought it was his…., so why did he put it out side the door in the snow?)
The last day in February we took a van ride into Vermont…
Chloe LOVES to ride !
In March a Nor'easter
Cold, Windy, and Snow!
She was in hog heaven!
Then in May
Chloe got a little brother…
Which began a whole lot of play time…
She showed him a lot of things,
how to walk the fence line,
how to keep the pond free of Great Blue Herons, the yard free of turkeys and
Thibby taught her
and the meaning of the word patience…
She had a heart to heart with her little big sister,
and was reminded of how
Boudy had shown an enormous amount of patience with her…
and given half a chance
Thibby could turn into a really good little brother, too.
He too is older now & she still watches out for him as if he were her “little” buddy.
Happy Birthday Chloe!
We love you Princess!
