Paquito was absolutely heartbroken. His best friend was gone and though he remembered him fondly, they would never be together again. You see, Paquito and his friend, Evlyn Catro’s uncle, were always together. They were inseparable, in fact. They weren’t just friends or companions even: their bond was so much deeper than that. It was as though Paquito, who is a Chihuahua and Evlyn’s uncle were like a father and son to one another. Evlyn says her uncle took Paquito everywhere with him, first carrying him in his pocket until he became too big for it. Then, he carried the little dog in his arms. But sadly, things ended abruptly for the pair.
Nearly six years ago, Evlyn’s uncle became very sick with an illness. Sadly, he never recovered from the illness and died recently. Paquito was absolutely devastated by his tremendous loss. Evlyn and her family did everything they could to comfort the dog, but it became clear to them that Paquito never forgot his owner. It began when Evlyn went to her aunt’s house. She was helping her aunt sort through her uncle’s belongings. The items had gotten wet in a rainstorm, so they were laid out on the floor. The items happened to be her uncle’s clothing.
Evlyn and her aunt laid the clothes out on the floor to dry. The moment they did that, Paquito ran into the room and headed straight for the clothing. He laid on top of them, gently smelling and snuggling into the pile of clothes. It was as though little Paquito recognized his owner’s scent and it was like the two were together again. Paquito did not want to leave the clothing and spent hours lying on the clothing gently smelling them and rubbing his head against them. While it was emotional to see, Evlyn and her aunt say it was comforting to know Paquito still has that bond with his owner, even though he is no longer here.
