FUR HEAVEN SENT
On October 6, 2000, Chili Breslauer, without warning, succummbed to her old massive head injuries inflicted upon her by her previous human "owner". She had to be humanely euthanized in the presence of her human companion after suffering a stroke and apparent embolism on a routine outing to the local dog park. She did not suffer and was comforted by many caring humans, who carried her, held her paws, stroked her head and spoke lovingly to her. She left here knowing she was loved.
5 years ago, pregnant Chili had been severely beaten in the head and dumped on the side of a highway, by her previous "owners." She was legally adopted and taken in by our Animals In Print Consultant and Contributor, Jill. After intensive rehabilitation, spaying, plastic (reconstructive) facial surgery and a solid year of behavioral modification (to overcome her fear of being abandoned), Chili was a new dog. She led a happy life with her constant canine, feline and human companions and various foster animals, whom she loved dearly.
Despite partial blindness and her rough start in life, Chili devoted daily attentions to happily bouncing after and playing with her dog friends, rolling in leaves and grass and, in warmer weather, diving headfirst into her own wading pool. She adored kisses, belly rubs, sunbathing, pasta, running after her ball, riding in the car, and sleeping on her own stuffed chair, snoring loudly. One of her favorite toys was George, the stuffed monkey, whom she carried with her nearly everywhere. Chili's remarkable enthusiasm for love and life was only surpassed by her love of food.
Chili is greatly missed by her devoted human, [email protected] (Jill) and animal companions.
Contributions in memory of Chili can be made to your local Humane Society.
A very, very special THANK YOU to the caring individuals who helped Chili in her final hour. Your kindnesses were unforgetable. Thank you.
