WE CELEBRATE THE UNBREAKABLE BONDS BETWEEN PUPS AND THEIR PEOPLE WHILE ALSO RAISING AWARENESS + SOME MUCH-NEEDED FUNDS FOR ANIMAL WELFARE & RESCUE GROUPS.
"Twelve years + eight months, his age. For ten years, he brought joy and love. He ferociously battled a failing heart for nearly 18 months. At 9:23AM on November 7th, I said goodbye to the love of my life. Even in his final moments, he resisted giving up and fought for every breath in his miniature five pound body. He was and for eternity will be Tiny But Mighty. I didn't have the opportunity to mumble these last words to him but I believe with all of my heart and soul that he already knew: On that fateful day when we met at the animal shelter a decade ago, you rescued me. I now believe in love, have compassion, and am the individual that I am today because of you. Your final lesson to me is that life is truly too short. I must make every day count until it's my time to depart and we are reunited again. I love you buddy."
YES, THE LOVE OF MY LIFE WAS A SCRAPPY RESCUED CHIHUAHUA NAMED CHICO.
"UNTIL ONE HAS LOVED AN ANIMAL, A PART OF ONE'S SOUL REMAINS UNAWAKENED." -ANATOLE FRANCE
We believe this statement wholeheartedly which is why the Tiny But Mighty Fund was founded. Tiny But Mighty Fund not only honors Chico's spirit, but to also celebrate the unbreakable bonds between pups and their people while also raising some much-needed funds to connect more of our furry friends with families.
I selected the name "Tiny But Mighty" for the fund because this was a phrase that I frequently used to describe Chico's larger than life personality especially during his valiant battle with congestive heart failure. This phrase also motivates me when I choose to challenge myself or during phases of my own personal struggles through the years. Universally "Tiny But Mighty" reflects how even the tiniest acts of kindness or action can certainly make a mighty big difference.
