My Beautiful Little Chicken Wing

A traveling companion coyote.

Alita and Mary:
Alita came from an animal rescue in Mexico and is part coyote. I named her Alita Bonita not knowing what it truly meant and when I searched for its meaning online, I realized I had named my dog ‘beautiful little chicken wing.’ Together, we lived on a boat for 11 years and we had many great adventures during that time. Alita is a loyal and loving companion. She was even known as the marina mascot. She kept out all of the rift raft – seals and blue herons.

I searched for the translation of her name online and realized that I named my dog ‘beautiful little chicken wing.’
