Thank You & Confessions Review (Finally)

I just wanted to thank you all for your kind words and support. I have to say, I'm really surprised at the way I've reacted to losing my Chloe. We still haven't received the autopsy results yet. Hopefully tomorrow morning. I'm so anxious to get them. I called around to several vet clinics and they all said I should have waited another month or two before putting her under for surgery. My husband and I have talked about getting another one, not to replace Chloe, but to help us move on a little. 

In other news, the move has become official. We will get the lease on Monday for the new place, I've scheduled all of our utilities to be turned off next Friday and I'm meeting with the movers and packers next week. We should be in our new house next Saturday! 

So, I mentioned on Valentine's Day that the hubs and I went to see Confessions of a Shopaholic...WORST. MOVIE. EVER. I was so disappointed in it. The books are hilarious and fun, the movie was rushed, boring and didn't make sense. My husband is a really good sport when it comes to chick flicks but even he didn't like this one. By the 27th glance at his watch, I knew he was bored. The girls behind us thought it was the best movie ever. Don't get me wrong there were, to be exact, two funny parts. They didn't take the time to develop the characters or their relationships at all. So, my recommendation, don't bother.

XOXO,

Completely Heartbroken

At 25-years-old, I am experiencing my first heartbreak. I've never had my heart broken by a boy, and it's my puppy that breaks my heart now. Yesterday, I had appointments to have Chloe spayed and Jaci to have a dental cleaning. Well, Chloe went first. I had this overwhelming nervous feeling this morning to cancel and pick her up. I just felt like she was too young and too small. However, I didn't listen. I dismissed the feeling and she died during surgery. Needless to say, Jaci didn't get her teeth cleaned. I was not about to let that vet put her under anestesia too.

I have never loved anything so completely and it be taken so unexpectedly. She was the sweetest dog and she completed our little family. I  know that there is nothing I can do, but I so desperately I wish I would have listened to my gut and picked her up. I spent, literally, the last 24 hours crying over her. We requested an autopsy because I feel like a healthy puppy should not have died while being spayed. It may seem silly to some of you, but my dogs are such a huge part of my life. They really are part of our family. I spend so  much time with them during the day and I really tried to do everything right with her. I would get up 4 or 5 times a night to take her out when she had to potty, I fed her 3 times a day, I wiped her hairy little mouth after she ate...and that dog loved me so much. She would follow me everywhere, even to the potty. When I would take a shower, she would stand on her back two legs and peek in, like she was making sure I was really in there.

Chloe was the perfect little dog. She wasn't just the dog I wanted, she was the personality I loved. She was like the dog version of me! The thing about dogs is that their love is so unconditional. I never thought I could feel like this over an animal. I mean, my heart actually, physically hurts. Here are a few pictures of her:

This is when she tried on her first outfit, a white sweater and red bow:
