An Instagram Story

This is Cailloux.

She’s what we like to call a Puerto Rican terrier, or “sata”. It’s an original island breed. They are smart and gorgeous, and the sweetest you’ll ever meet! She’s a rescue, so she’s also fiercely loyal and trusting. Four years ago, we embarked on our first adventure… we moved to Chicago.

She agreed whole heartedly, and traded in the beach fur for a winter coat.

She didn’t always like them. She didn’t really like the boots either, but she did see squirrels…

The solitary squirrel, a rare opportunity for Cailloux, and she seized it!

We fell in love with Chicago, but after 4 years the adventure had to come to an end. And again she was ready to help. (Without opposable thumbs she was more there to provide morale.)

Trusting as she is, she jumped right in! We moved back to her home country of Puerto Rico for the summer.

Boxes arrived.

Long sunny walks started…

And then, Cailloux’s favorite activity… beach!

She’s finally back home, she has a big yard.

The point is I’m leaving soon, and this time Cailloux can’t come on the adventure. And I’m going to miss her because she’s a great furry companion. At least, when I was living on my own, I felt less crazy about talking out loud. I wasn’t talking to myself, I was talking to my silent partner. And I’m going to miss her goofy little fur ball.

So, here is a series of very self-indulgent Instagram pictures I took of Cailloux.
