Still so sad
It has been 4 months since I lost Kodiak and I am still so sad. Still crying, waiting for the days when I can just smile with his memory. His 7th Birthday is later this month. That's the hard part. This big robust dog, full of energy, full of life, passed a little over 6 1/2. He died of bladder cancer. I got him fixed when he was 5 1/2. On one hand, I feel that may have triggered something. On the other hand, I know he had significant allergies and some other medical issues we dealt with. I don't know what went wrong.
He was a one of a kind. He howled when I was upstairs and my cell phone would be ringing downstairs. He howled whenever he heard sirens. The neighbors would go out and laugh. He let me vacuum him. Anytime I wanted. I'd call him over and he gladly would stand by the attachment as I sucked away his shedding hair. He loved to play hockey. I would pick up my stick and he would find his bone and ball. I miss him. I loved him. I am trying to move on. He brought me such happiness.
We have a new little one that offers so much. I am trying so hard to open my heart to him. He is quite exhausting as here we go again with all the training.
love them and enjoy them!
