Pete, Lori and Chloe
Betty has a pleasant surprise this morning. Pete and Lori along with their new little girl Chloe came to visit. They are in the San Jose area on business and visiting relatives, decide to stop by to visit.
As our long time members probably remember, Lori was the treasurer of our guild for several terms. Pete and Lori were very successful in breeding and showing English Angora in the 1990s. Their rabbits won the Best of Breed in the ARBA conventions three times in 1996, 1997 and 1998, twice went on to win the Group in 1996 and 1997. They stopped breeding and showing after the 1998 convention to concentrate in developing their architecture design business. And they have been very successful in doing so.
In 2003, they decided to adopt a child. After almost two years of applying and working through hurdles, they traveled to China and adopted Chloe in April 2005. Their journey is detailed in http://www.chloechavez.blogspot.com/ Chloe is now the center of their world.
In the top two photos, Pete, Lori, Chloe and Betty enjoy company. In the third photo, Pete is horsing around with Chloe at Betty's yard. Chloe is adorable and active, a very curious child.
Though Pete and Lori are no longer in rabbits, they remain to be members of NCAG and friends to Betty. Betty feels very fortunate to have them as good friends and that they would come by to visit when they are in the area.
