Goodbye dear, sweet Kali.

Yesterday we said goodbye to our dear Kali.

She would have been 13 this coming February, and while we knew this was coming for a while as age and her cancer and spondylosis were starting to catch up with her, we hoped it would be a ways off yet. But Saturday it seemed everything caught up with her at once. Sunday she had a big rally and was back to her old self, but come Monday morning things were going downhill again.

Yesterday was a good day. She was feeling ok. Not as good as Sunday, but much better than Saturday or Monday. But we knew it wouldn't last. So we stayed home and spent the day with her.

She played some ball and some tug. Took several walkies (though much shorter than they were just last week). Lots of cuddles on the couch with us and her best buddy, Kaiser. And lots and lots of time spent outdoors, enjoying the beautiful weather, lying in the cool grass with her ball and sniffing the autumn air. Her appetite was back temporarily, so she got to eat whatever she wanted.. including a favorite treat of a McDonald's double cheeseburger, hold the mustard, extra ketchup and pickles.

Then towards evening she took her last car ride. We took the scenic route, windows open so she could enjoy herself. And she passed peacefully with her head in dad's lap and mom rubbing her favorite spot behind her ears.

We miss her so much and there was a huge vacancy in the house last night and this morning. But it was the right thing to do. She had a wonderful day, and left for the bridge with that being her last memory.

Goodbye to our wonderful ol' girl. Thank you for sharing your time here with us.

Some photos from her "rally day" on Sunday, back to her usual self for a short period of time.

Re: Goodbye dear, sweet Kali.

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Look at those pictures, she looks so wonderful...I'm so thankful you were able to spend a very special day with her before saying your goodbyes. My heart goes out to you though.

RIP little lady, you will be missed.

Re: Goodbye dear, sweet Kali.

I am so sorry, Chris and Tim and pack. You gave Kali a wonderful life of fun, enjoyment, family, and love. You also did the right thing for her, giving her a glorious send-off and an easy slide to her spot at The Bridge to wait for you. I am sure the love you gave her fills her as she watches over you now. Run free, beautiful, loved Kali!

Re: Goodbye dear, sweet Kali.

Oh Chris I'm so sorry. I lost duchess last month at 13, no matter how long they're in our lives, it's never long enough. Hug the rest of the gang, they'll help you thru it. Give my condolences to Tim as well.

RIP dear Kali.

I'm very sorry for your loss. She was so lucky to have a family that would give her such a wonderful day and life. It's so obvious that she was very loved and she loved you right back.
I'm sure she's watching over all of you.

Beautiful Kali.

Re: Goodbye dear, sweet Kali.

My condolences to Chris, Tim and the Paq. I dread the day as I have three "double digits" now. I am thankful for each and every day with them because I know the majority are behind us.

Sweet Kali!

Wishing you both peace and comfort. What glorious pictures, I would have never guessed her 12 1/2 yrs old.
