Summer is almost over and a lot has changed in our lives. We left the house where we were robbed and we are in the process of buying a new house to start life in a new place. We will miss our church family and our friends, but we are enjoying this new beginning. Sadly, as the summer began, we said goodbye to one of our dogs. Echo, our chihuahua, suffered from encephalitis and passed away in May. I would like to tell you what a sweet little dog he was, but in reality, he was a stinker. He had an attitude and he wanted a lot of attention (don't we all).
We went through a lot with that dog. He was about 6 months old when we were robbed in our home. He went from being a very mellow chihuahua to (almost) that twitchy, paranoid chi stereotype. After the home invasion, we had to watch his diet carefully--he was prone to low blood sugar. We had him almost 4 years. It wasn't quite enough. The encephalitis came on quickly and severly. Unfortunately, we were unable to save him.
We are sad to lose little Echo. After the loss, we looked through our pictures to find what we could of him for my son. I made a slide show of all the pictures and videos I could find. You can watch it below.
I still miss the little guy.
