Run free, Cuzin Zero

I just wanna thank you all for your thoughts and good wishes for my Cuzin Zero. I’m very sad to tell you that he had to leave for the Bridge today.

Zero was super special to our whole entire family. Remember how I told you that I changed my mom’s mind about pit bull-type doggies? Well, Zero did the same for my mom when it came to chihuahua doggies.

Before Zero, mom thought chihuahuas were fine but she didn’t exactly LOVE them. And she never could figure out why anybuddy would want a teeny tiny dog.

Brudder Ranger used to call him “Mini-Me.”

Well, as it turns out, Zero WASN’T a teeny tiny dog. He was a great big ROCK STAR dog in a 5-pound body.

But even though he was a rock star, he didn’t have a mean bone in his body and he was always a really good sport.

I mean, a REALLY good sport.

Everybuddy who ever met Zero loved him and he loved them right back. He was always happiest cuddled up in somebuddy’s arms.

Grampa J and Cuzin Zero

Zero, I’m sure Grampa J was there to meet you at the Bridge and you’re safely in his arms right now. But, gosh, we sure are gonna miss you. You were one in a million and you’ll always, always be in our hearts.

Run free, Zero. Until we meet again…

  26. Sorry about the loss of your cousin. I was never a small dog person and forget about a chihuahua! Our little Angel (also known as Chi Chi -queen of the chihuahua’s) changed my mind about little ones with fur. Glad that Zero had a great life and was able to change minds also. A loss of any family is difficult, thoughts with you at this time.
