By our friend Sol,
“As I write these words, I am swinging on a hammock on a warm sunny day, the perfect climate after a week of cold, rain, and tragedy. I am under the shade of the avocado and anon trees that the dogs of Finca Tungasuk liked to eat so much, from the top of the hill where the house where they played is built, overlooking the fields, the crops that that these dogs loyally protected. It’s a beautiful morning, almost too beautiful to think about writing this eulogy. But in the midst of this tranquility, there is a silence that I hear from this hammock that must be addressed. This is a post to say goodbye publicly to five dogs of Finca Tungsuk, who were poisoned in the last month.
Chaplin, Chela, Pirata, and Mini died on January 1, 2018. Chucho died in December of 2017. Their absence is felt every day, and we remember them and the impact that they left on our lives. Please read on, share memories and photos of your own, and join us in honoring their legacies as the first farm dogs of Finca Tungasuk.
