With the end of Lost comes another end for Jorge Garcia: the loss of his precious Chihuahua. The actor’s beloved dog Nunu dies after being struck while crossing a street.
Garcia, who played Hurley on the hit series, posted to his blog to announce the sad news. “It breaks my heart to tell you that yesterday, as we were preparing to all, go to the airport, Nunu was struck by a car as she crossed the street,”. Jorge was devastated, more so when he proclaimed that “She died in his arms.”
Jorge Garcia, who was not available for comment, chronicled Nunu’s adventures frequently on the blog. He did so by posting photos of his black-and-brown pup chewing on toys, sheets, and sometimes even Garcia’s nose.
Garcia wrote that in 2005 he had been thinking about rescuing a dog from a Hawaii Humane Society. But, a stop at a local pet shop brought about a change of plans. It seems his heart couldn’t resist little Nunu.
“We are burying her in the Pet Garden at Valley of the Temple in Kaneohe,” Garcia wrote. “Nunu hated the water so we couldn’t bring ourselves to have her ashes scattered in the ocean. Three months from now you’ll be able to find a bronze plaque inscribed with just her name there. “
“If you’d like to leave a flower or a toy, I’m sure she’d love it.”
