“Here to tell you that Fiona had a stomach issue last week and I thought it was because she’d eaten something that’d hurt her, but no. The vet told us that dogs also get sick from stress, and like a woman, the girl stressed out because I wasn’t home for a few days and that makes her very sick,” he explained.

Luckily, the delicate situation didn’t worsen, and with a little extra care, Fiona is back on her feet thanks to her owner’s love. Her stress reaction produced by the feeling of loss is understandable as Eugenio melts over spoiling her, as he declared in a recent interview.

“Honestly, I do spoil her very much, first off, I never like to leave her alone, she always needs to stay with a friend of mine or at the office so that they stay with her,” he added.
