Default RIP Tiko

Last month, I lost Tiko. To jog your memory, Tiko was found outside in my bushes after being thrown out of a car. He was in horrible shape, filthy, long nails, roach backed, rickets, blind in one eye, dry eye in the other, bilateral luxating patellas, numerous scars from living in a cage probably all his life, 4 1/2 pound little grouchy 11 to 13 year old boy. The vet when I brought him in told me to take him home and love him, he wouldn't last long. Well, he lasted almost 5 years before his heart finally gave out. He had a heart murmur and congested heart failure and eventually went completely blind. But he was my tough old man and I miss him terribly. I'm still listening for the bell on his collar and looking for him to take to bed at night.

Pam, I am saddened to hear about Tiko. I have often thought of you and your gang. You were one of the few "old timers" here who shared your home with more chi babies than we did. Your have such a huge heart and brought love to so many abandoned and discarded fur kids. Bless you. Deb

Oh no, I'm so sorry. You are a very special person who gave him the best years of his life. He knew you loved him. RIP tiko.

I'm so sorry, he sounds like a very special Man! How lucky that you found each other and that he got to live out the last years of his life so very loved. Thinking of you both. xx
