Is it Chihuahua or Chiwawa?
I can never remember.
Regardless, Mr. and Mrs. L., who are both in their 90's, have had a number over the years.
They all had names that began with a "T."
When last at their home I met Toby.
When I returned for a second visit, Toby was no where in site.
He had recently died.
Mrs. T. then asked me to follow her to the fireplace mantle.
There sat a picture of Toby next to an urn with his ashes.
Next to Toby's picture was a picture of Tina with a small urn, that was next to a picture of Tiny with a small urn, that was next to a picture of Tubby with a small Urn and that was next to a picture of Trixy with a small urn.
It's quite a memorial.
A wonderful tribute to an incredibly faithful breed of man's best friend.
Mrs. L. let me know that they aren't planning on getting another due to their age.
I sort of bet things might change if/when someone happens to show up at their home with a Chihuahua puppy.
Hopefully, if that happened, they would be able to come up with another name starting with a "T."
