very saddened by the news of
Chino dying. He was part of the family to us all-- a beloved
friend. He was always somewhat magical to me when he would look
with those beautiful mysterious eyes. He was around as the children
growing up and he was always there for them to be their
pal. Death is unbelievable even though we know that it must
I do believe however, that he was where he wanted to be at the
end- at home
in the woods. He leaves you with wonderful memories of your good
times with him as part of the family. I envied the wonderful
you had to own a special pet such as Chino." Sylvia.
"I am so sorry to hear about Chino. He was one of those beings that seemed to defy mortality. Even when you told me how he was slowing down, when I watched his easy lope around the property, it seemed impossible. He was definitely a streak of wildness who seemed to grace us with his friendship by choice, and the only consolation that I can think of is that wild creatures do not choose to linger. Life seems to be an all or nothing thing to them, and when he could no longer live fully, he chose to die in the wild with dignity--something to think about. It is at times like this that people console themselves with thoughts of the spirit." Gary.
