As a little girl, all Nicole Grimes wanted was a puppy — a furry friend to confide in and lavish with love.
And when she was 10 years old, her wish came true. Nicole’s mom and grandmother had driven together to pick her up from school one day with an adorable surprise in tow. As the girl approached the car, she saw the critter sitting on her grandma’s lap, wearing a pink bow. Nicole was smitten. She named her Nana’s gift Chloe.
