I just got a call from K State U hospital that Maya has stopped breathing. (See original post in chi chat yesterday). She started doing better last night and I allowed myself to be hopeful, but it wasn't to be. I guess the swelling in her brain was too much for her tiny body and I do believe that God took her compassionately. She wasn't in any pain and even was starting to wag her tail at the staff and try to stand. So I think she passed over peacefully. I am devastated. I have 3 dogs and this one is just my baby. You know the one you have a soft spot for. She is the one that made me love chihuahuas. She was only 1 1/2. How does a dog go from being perfectly healthy and acting totally fine to dead overnight? I just don't get it.
Anyway, Maya was born on January 24, 2009 and was the cutest little girl. Tiny but mighty, she came into my life and brought me so much happiness. She was definitely the alpha dog and loved to run, play, jump and go with me to take the kids to school. She was not the typical stand-offish kind of chi either. She loved kids, other dogs and was really curious. She was the one I took to "take your pet to school day" as I knew she would not only behave, but love it too. I am going to miss her so much.
