Yesterday was my dad's birthday. I forgot. Of course I did. I always forgot my dad's birthday. I don't know why. I was always calling the next day,"Oh I forgot your birthday". Why should now be any different?! Wish I could call him though.

Last week our little Xochitl died in my arms. We got a call about 6:15am, a guy said he found my dog. I left right away. When I got there he had her in his sweatshirt on his seat. Said he found her by the side of the road. She was still alive, but barely. She died about 45 minutes later at home with all of us around her. I don't think she was in pain. We are certain someone took her because she was so far away and Cucui was still here. We are guessing she was hit by a car although she wasn't bleeding or anything. I can't believe she is gone. She was such a GREAT dog! We will really miss her!

OMG! Poor Xochitl. Couple days ago I was looking through my photos from the AFS year and wondering how she's doing now.
It's so sad .I'm gonna miss her to.She's the first Chiwawa I've ever known

I am so sorry to hear this news, what a day for it to happen on too. I can't imagine how hard this must have been for everyone. (((((((((((hugs))))))))

somehow I missed this post until today, I was going to the link you shared and saw the dog. I am glad I did
