Even though they lost almost a decade, the bond between the two has never been stronger!
Nicole Grimes was raised as an only child. As a result, when she was ten years old, her grandmother surprised her with every child’s dream birthday present: a puppy. Nicole and her dog, a Pomeranian-Poodle mix, were best friends for four years.
Unfortunately, things changed when Nicole’s father changed jobs and moved to a home-based business that demanded a calm environment free of distractions, including barking.
Because of this, Nicole’s father abandoned her beloved dog, Chloe, at the Washington Area Humane Society when she was 14 years old. Nicole and Chloe were both heartbroken.
Nicole was surfing through Facebook eight years later when she came across a feed about a senior dog who was available for adoption. The dog’s name was Chloe, and she was a Pomeranian-Poodle mix. Furthermore, she was 11 years old, the same age as Nicole’s Chloe at the time.
Nicole went to meet the dog, unable to shake the sense that it was the dog she had to give up when she was 14 years old. When they first met, Chloe licked Nicole’s face like she used to, and Nicole was certain she was her Chloe. Despite this, her family was sceptical, so they took Chloe to the vet to be examined for a microchip – and it turned out to be the same Chloe who had been surrendered to the shelter 8 years before.
Nicole is now married with a 4-month-old daughter of her own. She is thankful for the second chance she has with Chloe, especially since the grandmother who gave her the unique pet died three years ago. Nicole is now making up for lost time with Chloe and can’t wait for her own child to be best friends with her childhood dog.
