Dear Editor:

To all the animal lovers I want everyone to know I had a 20-year-old Chihuahua which died at 5:45 a.m. Dec. 5.

I had her since she was just four months old. I have had all kinds of animals all my life, but Tink Tink was so special.

Everyone says I need to get another dog, but I don’t know if any would ever replace Tink Tink.

While my dog was declining in health I would have never thought certain establishments would take advantage of those who are about to lose someone so precious to them.

I was wrong.

They will take advantage of pet owners from the point of euthanization to creamation because they know the pet owners are at their lowest point.

Don’t let this happen to you as it did me.

Love your animals with all your heart because they truly love you with all of theirs and more.

My advice to those who have animals, you have to be strongest at your weakest point because there are so many out there who are willing to take advantage of you.

Love to everyone and their animals.


Cynthia Slocumb and Tink Tink
