Chulo & Jeanna-hope you two are having lots of fun playing, running, chasing the sun and talking to the moon. Know that your mommies miss you and love you and can't wait to see you again when it's our time.
Jeanna belonged to my neighbor's-Holly & Elyse and Jeanna was always smitten with Chulo. Chulo had many loves--his first love was Chela and then there was ChaCha. Of course his other love was Kim-one of my former students who begged me to take him.
I can honestly admit, I never wanted a Chihuahua because I thought they were just too yappy for a dog. Much less a dog that would have to be kept inside. But after a little insistence from Kim, I finally decided to take this dog as my own and nothing was the same ever since! He was my little man who had been my loyal companion and I cannot imagine how my life existed before. I'm not sure how or why I came up with his name but it sure did fit him! Chi's are one of kindest dogs and now I get it-why owners are so head over heels for chihuahua's.
I've been asked if I'm going to get another dog and my answer is yes--when the time is right. I don't plan to actively search for one for Chulo came to me and my next dog will have to come to me as well. When and if she does, I will name her Luna. After I moved into my house, Chulo and I would often sit in the patio talking to the moon! Now I sit alone, talking to the moon, knowing he's out there--albeit far away.
Chulo was cremated on 4/3/14 and today I brought him back home. I placed him on the sofa for a bit--it was one of his favorite spots. Earlier this evening-- I brought him outside to the patio and sat in silence talking to the moon while burning incense. I've been asked if I planned on having a service of any kind and for now I don't plan on it. I remember now that, his brother Blue passed away in January of this year. They were not the best of friends the years later when they met but I hope now, they are being nice to one another. I've been slowly putting away some of Chulo's things and will make a donation to a local Pet Rescue but will hold onto one of his toys-Buddy. In fact, I bought three of them several years ago. I will give one away, save one next to Chulo's remains and whenever I get another dog, it will be one of her first toys.
It is said that when pets die they cross the Rainbow Bridge where they are happy and content, except for one small thing they miss someone very much. And when it's our time and they spot us we are reunited, never to be parted again. Thus, we cross the Rainbow Bridge together. So for now Chulo, run, play and be happy. Everyday til then, I'll save all my kisses for you and hold them in heart while talking to the moon.
Chulo's life in pictures. I plan on framing one of them but not sure which one yet.
