Thanks to those who took the time to send their condolences regarding my dog, Chucha. We buried her last Saturday not too far from the house. Through the trees I can see her grave and in the evenings I’ll glance over that way and reminisce. Lots of special thoughts came from so many readers and I’ll remember them all. One very special message came from J.R. Guerra who wrote, "Take comfort that she lived like a dog should, unchained and free to wander in the open air."
