My Kasha is Gone

On Tuesday, Kasha journeyed over the Rainbow Bridge. Hopefully she'll find Dorrie there and the two of them can romp and play like in the old days.

Kasha was my American Eskimo that was with me for 14 years. She lost her hearing about a year ago and has been gradually declining. Her walks got shorter and slower although she loved to romp in the snow and did so like a pup just a couple of weeks ago.

Monday night, she enjoyed her dinner but after she laid down, couldn't get up for her evening walk. I helped her up and we managed to go out back for a potty call and a quick sniff around the yard.

When Kasha came in, she went right back to her now customary spot under the coffee table. Tuesday morning she was still there and didn't get up for breakfast or to go out. In the afternoon it was obvious her time had come. She couldn't stand on her own and wouldn't even drink from the water bowl presented to her.

Ruby was constently checking on her knowing that things weren't right.

I brought Kasha to our gentle vet and he agreed that it was her time. I didn't think it would be so hard to watch her go but it was. Greatfully she went peacefully and if her past behavior is any indication, enjoyed our final "alone" time.

I'm still looking down so I don't put my feet too far under the coffee table but Kasha isn't there any more. She was a good and faithful dog who saw our family grow from 3 to 5 children, added dogs, and countless life events. She had many, many good years and I will miss her dearly.

Rest in peace my little Kasha - I love you.

Re: My Kasha is Gone

My heart is sad with yours.

I can relate to your watching where you put your feet under the coffee table. After I lost my boy, I would step over "him", even though he was no longer laying there.

They are such a part of your everyday life.
