We lost Sugar bear early this morning.
When I woke up today our houseboy, Clarence told me that Sugar bear passed around 3am. According to him he was puking blood and the next thing they know he was gone. The first thing I asked was: “alam na ba ng mga bata? And he said: “Hindi pa mam.”
I told Vinny first. Claudia left the house very early in the morning and no one told her the sad news yet.
I received a call from her mid morning sobbing: “did you bury him already, mom?” I asked her: “who told you?” She said: “koko” (Vinny) I didn’t know how to tell her. I didn’t know what to say. I just said: “yes.”
We have 4 dogs. Rocko, Andy, Sugar bear and McLee. Rocko & Andy lives with us inside the house but Sugar bear & Mclee since they are big dogs they stay outside in our garage.
Sugar bear is Claudia’s dog. My gay bestfriend Eric Diaz gave Sugar bear to her when she was about 7 – 8 years old.
Claudia wanted a dog so bad so I told Eric: “Bakla, Claudia wants a dog. Buy her one.” Eric just asked 2 things: 1. find one that is within his budget 2. to call the dog “sugar bear” because that’s what he call his boyfriend.
We found a Japanese spitz that was within the budget he gave me and called him Sugar bear. Sugar bear grew so big and so noisy that we decided to let him stay outside after a few years. He stays in the garage with McLee our Belgian Malinois.
Losing someone you dearly love is tough. Good bye Sugar bear! You will be missed.
P.S. I didn’t tell Vito yet. He might probably find out about it when he reads this post.
Claudia & Sugar bear.
