I will NEVER be able to rid my mind of the memory of those hundreds of poor neglected dogs...
MADONNA'S FORMER CHIHUAHUAS, EVITA AND CHIQUITA, have HAPPY ENDINGS and the SAD UNFORTUNATE DEATH OF ROSITA LEAVES HER WITH AN UNHAPPY ENDING -
MANY FORMER VOLUNTEERS HAD HEARD ABOUT INSIDE EDITION DOING A PIECE ON CHIHUAHUA RESCUE SAVING MADONNA'S THREE DOGS. PATRICIA AND KIMI HAD A DIFFERENT VERSION (from the former volunteers' version) OF HOW ROSITA HAD DIED. THEY CLAIMED ROSITA DIED DUE TO AN INJURY TO HER MOUTH/JAW (an injury from her former owner, NOT MADONNA) AND THEY EVEN WENT SO FAR TO CLAIM ROSITA DIED IN PATRICIA'S ARMS ON THE WAY TO THE VET.
FORMER CHIHUAHUA RESCUE VOLUNTEERS WHO WITNESSED THE TRUE DEATH OF ROSITA TELL OF A MUCH DIFFERENT FAIT.
Volunteers and an apparent autopsy report state pneumonia was the cause of her death.As a matter of fact, Kimi, Patricia, and a few other volunteers were eating dinner at a restaurant when Rosita died at Chihuahua Rescue and Sanctuary. Rosita had apparently been sick for months and like many other sick dogs at Chihuahua Rescue and Sanctuary, Rosita went untreated. While eating at the restaurant, Kimi received a call from her boyfriend, Dave, who stated 'Rosita's dead'. They quickly left the restaurant and rushed back to the kennel where they picked up a dead Rosita and drove her to the vet at which time an autopsy was performed. According to former volunteers, the autopsy report concluded Rosita died from pneumonia. It was at that time, Kimi finally decided to adopt Chiquita and Evita to a wonderful and loving woman who immediately took them both to the vet. According to a vet bill, Chiquita had to have extensive teeth cleaning including extractions (something Kimi Peck should have taken care of)
All of the Inside Edition segment where Kimi Peck 'describes' her version of the death, was thankfully cut out.
