Yesterday the animal world lost a great friend: Diego Chandler. For his short life, he touched many lives. He was so loving, so silky-soft, and so full of energy and curiosity about the world. He loved to ride around on Hugh’s shoulders (and even mine once or twice).
Hugh and Jami adopted Diego just six short months ago. He was soon diagnosed with kitty leukemia and spent most of his life hanging out in the bathroom sink of their bedroom. But he was more than content there. He then developed a tumor in his lungs that was just too much for the little guy to handle.
I’m glad I got to know Diego — who reminded me of my old friend Licorice — and got to be his friend and even his one-time maid. My condolences to Hugh and Jami on the loss of Diego, and rest in peace, little man.
