On August 3, 2012, I lost my 15-year old furry kid Chloe. Chloe was a lab/border collie mix I adopted from the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago and I adored more than anything. One week to the day, I lost Chloe's bestest bud Harley, a 15-lb tabby cat who was devastated at losing his best friend.
Yup. I lost not one, but two, furry kids in a week. And, while I wasn't ready to adopt another pet, I knew I could give one a good home.
