Addie's not around a lot of kids her age, in fact she hasn't really spent a lot of time with any kids. She's usually around adults. She's the only child in either of our immediate families and we have a family member who watches her during the day. The chances of her having any interaction with kids so I'm always a little concerned how she'll do when she meets a kid. You may think this post is how Addie met the first kid her age and they've become great play date friends...
Not so much, we're talking best friend of the K9 variety.
Chloe is our 9 year old chocolate Labrador retriever and she is the sweetest dog ever. I was a bit concerned how Chloe would react because she's never been around children either. She doesn't like loud noises and tends to remove herself from the room if she's not feeling comfortable.
We got lucky, Addie and Chloe became best friends early on. Chloe is really patient with Addie as she pulls on her hair and ears on a daily basis. Addie chases her around the house screaming after Chloe.
Chloe just likes herself a little rub down and Addie is always willing to give her one.
She also likes when Addie shares her pool as Chloe is a lab and labs love water.
Wherever Chloe is, you're sure to find Addie not far behind.
On any given day you can find this going on. Addie loves Chloe so much and it's so cute to watch them interact though I think she oftentimes drives Chloe crazy!
