Wipeout the beautiful and clueless. A 16-year-old Mexican immigrant mutt who rules the sidewalk of C Street, S.W. in Capital (foot)Hill, DC. I bought her from a street-corner vendor in Guadalajara when she fit into the palm of my hand. Now she’s a vet-shaved, cancer survivor with enough strength to chase squirrels but not to climb stairs. We haven’t decided if she can survive the next chapter of her storied life: a road trip down the Pan-American Highway in a vintage truck camper. Is it cruel to uproot her or worse to leave her with friends until we return?
