Chocobot (Category Chellenge: Animals)
Ever since I was a kid, I have been surrounded by animals. My mom used to have eight cats at home (though they all stay and sleep in our garage) , my dad had a bulldog named Abraham while us kids had a dog named Casper.
Chocobot, on the other hand was a dog brought home by my brother five years ago. He was a mixed breed of dachchund and aspin (Filipino dog) and stood at only one foot and a half. He had this tiger-like fur and drooping ears and of course, long body and short legs.
Chocobot was a darling. When I gave birth to my son back in 2010, he was at the foot of my bed and would always look after my son whenever I will leave him in his cradle. When Carl (my son) started walking, he was alwmost always behind him and Chocobot would always call our attention whenever Carl would fall on his knees or when he was almost losing his balance.
Chocobot stayed with us for five short years. He got sick and two days after we brought him to a local veterinarian, he gave up the fight. We were all crying and can't bear to part with him so We had him buried in our backyard. Up to this day, we still celebrate his birthday. Today, January 16 was supposed to be his 6th birthday. Even if he's no longer with us, we are still cooking his favourite meal - chicken adobo. How we all miss Chocobot.
