Earlier this year I moved to a very rural area for the first time in my life. Growing up, I was one of those kids who never saw cows or horses unless we went to a petting zoo or drove somewhere on vacation and passed a field of animals. That was always an exciting event. But now that I'm all grown up, and I live next door to a field of cows, I'm much more mature. I no longer point out the window and yell COWS! when I drive by. Sure, I still slow down to admire them, and I talk to them and take their pictures, but so does everyone, right? Right??
So now that I'm a country girl, I've been wanting my very own cow. The only thing stopping me was that I have no idea how to get a cow, how to feed a cow, how to take care of a cow, or what Ziggy would do with a cow. Fortunately Chloe came along to take my mind off having my own cow. It's sort of like giving a guinea pig to a child who really wants a dog. They might be disappointed to not get a dog, but having a guinea pig is still pretty cool. I know I can't have a real cow right now, but having a dog who sort of looks like a cow is still pretty cool.

Chloe is around five years old, and she is extremely sweet. In fact, one of the great things about Chloe is she is so eager to please. She's been working really hard to do a good cow imitation.
