Chia Tapioca

Gosh, my neighbor’s dogs on the street, on the corner of my driveway, got poisoned again. Rosita, my neighbor was so sad. She had four dogs. One left, after three were poisoned,They threw poisoned meat over the fence along the road, to any dog available. On purpose. It’s weird because I just posted a post from a year ago, almost to the day it happened to Tiko last year. So strange and so sad.
