Narrative Essay Kloe was a beautiful, caramel colored dachshund that I hated loving. She was never the most energetic dog. If I took her to the park and tried to get her to play fetch, she would look me in the eye with the blankest expression. Then I would proceed to sadly pick up the ball up myself. Normally I could open the door for her and she could go out and do her business by herself, because she knew her boundaries and I knew she was never the type to interact with other dogs, but one day she took it too far and we had to make drastic changes.

We’re taking them tomorrow” I was right, that was the last thing I wanted to hear and I felt like my heart dropped to my stomach. I know Kloe was never the easiest going dog, but I loved her and the thought of letting her go made me cringe so badly.
