Desertberner’s Sweet Edelweiss (Chloe)
Berner Garde # 62800
Linda Collmar, Reno, Nevada

Chloe is the newest and youngest member of our family.  She was just nine months old when she came to us one year ago.  She was a little shy with people at first but she immediately took to our other two berner girls. Our lives have not been the same since her arrival.  Full of endless energy and enthusiasm, there is never a dull moment. She has such a sweet personality and is so entertaining that it is hard to believe that she was found roaming the streets of California and was never claimed.

Chloe is quick to learn and eager to please.  She does everything at 110%.  She is the talker in our family, clearly making her desires known.  As the youngest, she is doted on by all.  She thrives on the attention. With the glow of excitement in her eyes to the cocking of her head when you talk to her along with her many expressions, she can get most everything she wants and she knows how to make the most of it.  Chloe is all about having FUN and living life to the fullest.  Chloe can be quite an instigator at times, teasing the others with toys and then taking off with the others in fast pursuit.  There is nothing that gets passed Chloe, whether it is the smallest bird or the neighbor next store coming out to get their mail, she is ever alert and curious.  One of her favorite games is to play peek-a-boo.  She covers her face, peeks at you and then covers her face again.  But at the end of the day, you will find her snuggled up next to you on the couch.  She also loves to give you lots of doggy kisses.  She enjoys watching TV, especially programs with animals. She will watch them, occasionally bark at them and wags her tail.

Chloe has played a big part in helping our other rescue, Haylie, learn to play and have fun.  In return, Chloe enjoys the “mothering” Haylie gives her.

Chloe has begun training in obedience, rally and agility.  With her enthusiasm, I am sure she will do well.  She has come a long way from the shy little girl we brought home to the fun loving little clown she has become.  Chloe has forever changed our lives.  I think she knows she has found her forever home.
