Jessi & Chloe

April 28th, 2016

During her time on the Camille Styles team, Jessi was obsessed with dogs. The two of us would unwind at the end of almost every workday by googling puppy photos and researching breeds… in fact, our ongoing conversation was a big part of what inspired the Fox & Hound series! Shortly after Jessi spread her wings to pursue fashion blogger-dom full-time, she made the ultimate big girl decision: she zeroed in on a breed and finally got a dog. Ladies and gentleman, meet Chloe Darling…

Your name: Jessi Afshin, Fashion Blogger at The Darling Detail

Your dog’s name, breed and age: Chloe, King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, 9 months

  1. How did Chloe come into your life? Last fall I was in a season of life where I was very single (age 23). While working for myself (career-wise, alone), and also focusing on myself (alone), a little voice inside me told me to inquire about taking on a little furry friend. I promised myself I wouldn’t get my hopes up and that it would only work out if it were meant to be. All of the Cavalier wait-lists were 6 months, and my standards for this little one were so high (I wanted an itty-bitty girl so badly!) — so it started to look like it wouldn’t happen. But amazingly, within one week, a breeder called my cell and let me know she had a prospect owner cancel for her small little Bleinhem runt (only 1.5 pounds!) and that she would be ready for pick-up in one month. I’m still not really sure how she found my cell number, but my prayers were answered! Enter Chloe!
  2. What’s your favorite thing about your dog? Her company. I can’t imagine a day without my snuggle bug. These little furry friends truly become a part of you and bless every single moment of life spent together. She also teaches me how to sit back, relax and play a little while — which is crucial to my type A, workaholic personality!
  3. Your favorite thing to do together: Snuggle. Kiss. Play. I mean we’re basically dating — and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Sorry boys, I’m taken.
  4. The funniest thing Chloe does: Ha! Chloe throws a Chloe tantrum: she kicks up her feet and pouts every time she wants something. So this basically happens about 40 times a day, and about every 5 minutes. If we want to be fed, Chloe kicks; if we want to play, more kicks; if we want a treat — we’ll be getting a whole ‘nother kick tantrum.
  5. And naughtiest thing she’s ever done? She’s taken and eaten a very large chunk my best friend’s family room rug. She does it every week or so while we’re not watching (the hole gets bigger and bigger). I’m sorry, friends!
  6. If Chloe were a person, living or dead, who would she be and why? Me, of course. Her personality – she’s just like mom. Little girl knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to *literally* chase after it. But also, just like her momma, she’s a little bit stubborn and impatient. Plus, people stop me on the street all the time and ask “is that @chloe_darling_?” You betcha, she is way cooler than I will ever be!

    Living in a city as progressive as Austin it would be nice to see some rescue dogs featured! Sure they may not be “designer” but they’re a hell of a lot cooler!

    • Thanks for sharing Elaine, great idea!!

    • Chanel Dror says:

      Thanks for sharing, Elaine. We like to think that all dogs are equally cool, but agree that it’s important to highlight the value of rescuing a pup that needs a home! Have you seen our Fox & Hound posts profiling Victoria & Lucy, Chelsea & Alice, Jen & Ralph, and Kelly, Samson & Ellie? I think you’d love those!

    I object, whether a rescue animal or a pure bred, I certainly would get what my heart desires…politically correct or not….cooler or not…meaning don’t try to convince my heart otherwise….I do love a pure bred.

    Posts like this warm my heart!! I’ve got a store bought Yorkie & a rescue Pit Bull mix, so I’ve spread the love around in both sides of the spectrum. I can see where both side are valid. It’s not the dog’s fault for coming from a breeding home. Either way you spin it, if you’re giving the dog a beautiful loving life you’re ultimately rescuing them from the cruelties of humanity.

    Peace Be With You,

      That’s the spirit I feel….after all, if the owner is committed to his/her pet and takes on the responsibilities of owning a pet for its lifetime span, the world around you is so much brighter…woof.
