A Diós Cha Cha

6 Aug

The TORTAS are off on another adventure with a quick trip to the U.S. and then four weeks in Central Mexico. We were only gone three days when I received a message from our neighbor that Cha Cha, my new little dog got out of the yard and was hit by a car and killed.


Before she came to us after being spayed. Looking sad and skinny.

We’re not sure how she got out. I’ve been feeling sad and even now it’s hard to write about it. I only had her a month, but time really doesn’t matter. I took a risk and opened my heart. How often do we really get to do that in our lives?


Adiós Cha Cha. Vaya con Diós. Go with God.

    I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet new puppy. I have felt guilty and a bit silly about these pet losses, but have learned to accept the mutual love these family members share with us and treasure them while they are in our lives. Enjoy your travels, love to you and Lisa.

      I truly will treasure the time I had with her, however brief. It will take me awhile to not look for her when I get home.

    I’m sorry, AA! I know that hurts.
    Catch my hugs, Jane

    I’m so sorry, Alex and Lisa. It’s hard, I know. And you’re right, time doesn’t matter, she was (and still is) in your heart. Bye sweet pup.
