kyra left us today
doesn't seem that long ago that my 7 and 8 year old daughters filled the house with the joyous laughter that only a new puppy can evoke. enjoying the new game game of chase the ball which would go on till i had to give the new puppy a rest. the new little brilliant jet black fur ball with the seemingly huge bat ears would sit waiting for the game to begin. a bond, formed with love that first day and ended with kyra's final tender brushing bathed with tears. the once tiny hands that now belong to two adult woman placed some fur in a plastic bag and were placed in a treasure box filled with other small trinkets from there childhood. kyra left us at the vet surrounded by her family. it was only today i figured out it wasn't that tennis ball that kyra treasured, it was the two little girls that she helped raise into the now college woman. good bye kyra, you will always be a "good dog".
