Remembering Chico

I’m still in shock, I can’t believe you’re gone. Losing you was totally unexpected. You were taken so quickly by liver cancer. The cancer meds didn’t have a chance to work (we sure tried)! You were such a trooper while you were sick, trying to be strong for Mommy.

I’m thankful for having you for 9 years. You were there for me through my divorce, death of my Mom and every other bad day or moment I’ve ever had. You truly knew when I was sad, mad, stressed, happy, scratching at my legs for me to pick you up, you were my little stress reliever! I was fortunate to be there when you first opened your eyes and imprinted on me (a feeling I will never forget) and there when you took your last breath. You gave us a little over 9 years of HAPPY memories which is not near enough! We’ll miss your high pitch bark when Daddy got home, keeping guard at night, ‘keeping the peace’, watching you play with your brother, plastic bags, car rides and walks in the stroller. You were ALWAYS at my side, ALWAYS watching me. Things, and my life, will never be the same again.

When you left you took a huge chunk of my heart with you. You were by far one of the BEST parts of my life that can never be replaced. We want you here with us and you left us way too soon. You were so loved all your years! Your paw prints will forever be on our hearts. We will be together again. We love you and miss you so very much, our sweet Chico. I couldn’t have asked for a better fur-baby. R.I.P our sweet boy.
