All Dogs Go to Heaven

I really hope that the animated movie with the same title as this post is right, because we just lost the best and sweetest little puppy ever.  Our little Pingüina was hit by a car Monday morning.  She didn't survive.  We are devastated and heartbroken.

Pingüina was a perfect little puppy.

We all fell in love with her the moment we saw her.  After finding out that she had been living in an abusive home, we decided to adopt her.  The kiddies thought she looked like a little penguin, so we named her Pingüina.



She was more than just a pet to us, she was part of our family.  She was my companion throughout the day, while the kiddies were at school.  She'd play in the kitchen while I made lunch, happy to snack on anything that I "accidentally" dropped on the floor.  And she curled up on the bed beside me, while I worked on the computer.


The kiddies loved Pingüina so much, that they mentioned her in their letters to Santa and El Niño Dios.



And Pingüina loved the kiddies too.  Whether she was chasing them around the house, playing fetch with one my chanclas (flip-flops) or just clowning around.  She was always the first one the kiddies hugged when they got home from school.

Losing Pingüina has been hard on us all.  We will never forget the love and happiness she brought to our lives.  She will forever be in our hearts.


Rest in Peace, Pingüina
Te queremos y te extrañamos.  Besitos.

  1. It's hard for people who do not have pets to understand how important the pet is in the family. I feel for your loss....
