A Tribute to Frito

Frito, shortly after she was rescued.

Portrait of Frito, June 2008

Yesterday our rescue family said goodbye to a beloved little pug. Every rescue is special, but Frito tugged at all of our hearts so much. She was taken in by our Houston coordinator, Mary Fran, and Mary Fran gave her a loving home. Although Frito's little ears were leathery and her tail bare, it always waggled with joy, even yesterday morning, when she felt so ill, knowing her mama was near. Frito loved to dress up, and she wore her outfits with such style. Her battle with cancer is over now and she is not suffering. How lucky and how blessed we were to know her.

What a shock Nancy! I too remember that post of Frito because it was so darling. Luckily Frito was able to finish her life out in love and style.

Goodbye sweetie.
