6 years ago #chefjavs wanted a dog and so he chose Romeo from the litter of puppies because he was the friendliest. Romeo was the “runt” of the litter But Javs insisted on getting him so we took him into our family. Romeo was our companion at all times and loved us all unconditionally. Last week he was surprisingly taken from our family and we are very sad. We will miss him #H2HTribute #h2hanimals #BostonTerrier
He loved being tickled and Papa James would do it At around 1140am before leaving for the airport (Jan 25)- our other dog Chef came up rushing to the family room. We don’t keep him in the house because he’s magulo. But somehow he escaped and was able to go up. But it was at that same time james got a missed call from the vet about Romeo. It was Romeo saying goodbye ( Romeo was in the clinic when he died so we didn’t see him ) Last October a friend gave #chefjavs a puppy and maybe that’s God’s doing in preparation for what was going to happen since only He knows.
God has always given new life to our family every time He takes someone He gives new life. When Mommy Carmeling was called, 3 months later the twins – Luis and Ariana- were born. A month before Dada Monching passed away, Antonio was born. God always watches over us. #H2HTribute #H2HAnimals
