What is your “Chloe Joy Factor?”

For those who know me, you know how much Chloe is a part of my life. She has filled my empty nest and makes my daily gratitude list. She also keeps me on my toes. Chris and I have a practice in place to help us have the patience & understanding  and to find humor in Chloe’s mischievous acts. We keep an ongoing list on our frig of all the things she has hunted for, retrieved and chewed up in our home. As of today, we’re on item #76.  Her latest was the book below.

Chewed Book - October 2010

Okay… so I took the photo below, a bit staged however I think she looks a bit remorseful, don’t you?


Here’s the thing for me. That sweet creature gives me so much joy EVERYDAY!  I hope each and everyone of you have a “Chloe Joy Factor” in your life. Joy comes in all shapes and sizes, in the expected and unexpected. What I know is joy can be found everywhere, everyday if you just look for it.

She's just so darn cute!

p.s., Just realized she ate a full bag of her chicken chew strip treats!  #77 and counting…
