For those of you that know Chloe well, you know she LOVES dogs. Ever since we left Maizy in Roanoke, over 1.5 yrs ago, Chloe has been asking for a dog. In Haiti, there are an abundance of dogs, but most of them are ugly, mean, and they all look alike. It has been obvious, that a Haitian dog is not what our family wanted or needed. (It’s not like the states, where you can pick any breed of dog, and have it shipped to you the next day.)
On Christmas Day, our fellow missionaries the Wagenbachs’ dog had 6 puppies! Chloe spent countless hours playing with the puppies, taking care of them while Brent & Alisha were out on teams, and learning their different personalities. The Wagonbachs let her have first pick of the puppies. She choose one of the females, and decided to name her Izzy. The preparations began!

This dog is so spoiled, it received toys, shampoo, treats, and even a bed from Grandma Jean and Maizy.
Chloe is so happy to have a dog, and can’t wait to take her to the beach. Izzy seems like a good fit for our family. I am reminded of Gods perfect timing, as I would NOT have been able to handle the stress of a new puppy during our time of transition to Haiti last year!
