The 'Lost' star is mourning the loss of his Chihuahua which was killed by a car when the dog crossed the street.
"Lost" star Jorge Garcia is heartbroken after his beloved dog Nunu was run over by a car. The actor, who recently finished his stint on the desert island drama, was with his pint-sized dachshund-Chihuahua mix when she was struck by a motorist on Sunday, May 30.
And he was devastated to watch the pooch pass away in his arms. In a post on his blog, he writes, "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. She died in my arms."
"We are burying her in the Pet Garden at Valley of the Temple in Kaneohe. 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."
"We love and miss her very much."
