Te Adoro, Teodoro (Adopted 2/21/05 - 2/4/15)


Recommended Posts




He was meant to be here. To say it was fate would be an understatement. His arrival was so well-plotted that from the time I put in a call to Anna Clements (of SOS Galgos) in Barcelona, to the day he arrived in Pittsburgh (courtesy of David and Marci Anderson, who happened to be in Barcelona at the time fate went into action) only one week had passed. And within 24 hours of posting in search of a GUR crew to get him north from Pittsburgh, the run was completely filled. Yes, Teo was definitely destiny!


Teo had two very distinct personalitiies: his public persona was of a fearful, unsocialized and mistrusting hound; in reality (and you have to take my word on this as no one ever witnessed it) he was an outgoing, euphoric, happy, wagging, leaping-in-the-air, rooing, eastie-westie, tippy-toeing fuzzbucket. An "I'll get behind you so I can nose you in the butt while you're walking down the stairs" kind of guy. Afraid of the world, but in the safety of his home, with his mom and pack, the world was his. He was a tremendously loving and brave brother to Mafi and Gigi, but had an adversarial relationship with Dandi, with poor Teo usually being on the losing end. But since Dandi died 18 months ago, Teo came into his own, and became the core of the pack. Always happy and exuberant, he sparkled as the pack settled into its new order.


I could never imagine Teo anything other than the funloving pup he'd always been, so it took a while for me to recognize that he was changing. The boy who literally climbed the walls when I arrived home, no longer did so. Medical challenges arose which at times affected his ability to do what he loved, and over the course of a short couple of days, he trusted me with his soul, and told me what he needed. The only gift I could give in return for the blessing that was Teo, was to listen.


Please joins us in a special "Celebration of Fuzz"

:beatheart Absolutely beautiful storybook of Teodoro and his lives, the one he left (sad eyes) to the one he embraced (happy eyes) (and I might add, infectious smile!). Jordan, with you Teodoro found everything he needed. How blessed you both were to have had fate introduce you. You were the only one he could trust with his soul, he loved you so much. I am so sorry it was time to listen and help your friend cross over. :grouphug x infinity

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -- Unknown

Your celebration of Fuzz brought tears to my eyes. Seeing those sad eyes become happy full of joy surely is the journey of a lifetime.

How blessed you were to have "earned" the love of this special boy. My sincere condolences.

Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.

What a lovely tribute and video for your beautiful boy - I am so sorry for your loss. :grouphug


When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry
