I must start with this:
I can't even hold back my tears! The tears and sadness has started all over again. I thought I had accepted his death, but the heartache only seems
to grow. If you only knew how much he meant to me, you would be as sad as I. Never has a dog graced this planet with such wisdom, insight, intellect
and the most human ways...ever! I learned a tremendous amount of everything from Chako.
Oh sure, we would all say, that our pet friends are just as special as Chako, but I'm telling you, this guy, was the best canine friend I have ever
had in over 40 years. I have been around more animals than people and Chako was, is and will always be the most loving soul I have ever encountered in
my life thus far. I have loved and cared for everything from Ligers, to Chimps, to Wolves and everything in between. Chako was the best Animal
Ambassador to man ever to grace planet Earth. He truly was "Otherwordly".
I lost my guy over just a week ago and the pain I feel is incomprehensible! After losing my Hero Dad, I thought I had felt the bottom of the barrel of
pain. I guess I was wrong. Suffering this loss is so much greater, so much more intense.
I chose to let Chako go naturally...no euthanasia (I hate that) he had a mast cell tumor on his shoulder. He passed at home in my arms. I've never
seen anything like it before in my life. It took only minutes and poof, he was gone...just like that
So painful...so incredibly painful!!!!!!!! In
the end, he made the decision that it was time to leave this stinking place.
I thought that I would be okay with it by now. After all, it's been almost 2 weeks...but it hurts more than ever. My other pet friend Shottas is so
sad, he just lays around all day. I break down crying all the time...and he cries with me, he misses his only dog friend. The only canine friend Shots
ever had was Chako. He was the only dog that would ever accept him except for those "Wiley Coyotes" in my neighborhood.They seemed to very much
appreciated his gameness. Other than the local wild canines, Chako was the only friend Shottas ever had...ever.
We miss Chako so much...what an Angel he was...what an inspiration he was to so many people and other canines. Chako's the reason why at least 100
people aren't afraid of dogs, let alone afraid of pit bulls. His nickname at the 8 local dog parks we frequented was "The General" because he kept
order and peace as long as he was around. No misbehaving went down on his watch at the parks and if it did, he stopped it...he stopped it all in its
RIP Chako...you did your job dude. Because of you Chako, I learned how to be a better human and a better human friend
This was Shottas on a time out and even then, he was happy as long as Chako had his back:
In memory, I'll post more pics of CHako. Thanks for reading about my best friend ever
