IN LIFE AS IN THE DANCE : GRACE GLIDES

ON BLISTERED FEET.

Thank you all...

You all have helped me through this difficult week.  Katie was 12 years old and was stricken suddenly with Pancreatitis.  I'm thankful that her illness was very brief and she didn't have to suffer very long. This photo isn't very clear but it's such a good example of her good nature and sweet spirit.  Can't you just see Homer sitting there waiting to get her attention?

Zoe passed away last year, and we brought Homer home to "Aunt Katie."  He bugged and pestered her to no end.  She did everything she could to escape from him but finally accepted him and they became very good buddies.  She endured having her ears bitten, her tail chased, and being awakened for another round of tug-of-war.

She gave us so much pleasure and she never gave us a minute of worry.  Sweet, sweet Katie.  We'll always miss you...

Oh I'm so sorry for your loss! I know this must be such a difficult time, though I'm glad her passing was brief.
As Robert Louis Stevenson once said of dogs- Katie will be waiting in heaven..
You'll be in my thoughts and prayers-

That is a great picture of Katie even if it's not the best resolution. Her sweet spirit still shines through brightly.

I sure hope that Homer has stepped up to the plate and is giving you and Hubman all of the love that Katie left with him to share.

Big hug!

We sure love our furbabies, and miss them terribly when they are gone.

Wrapping you up in warm hugs, honey...
