If any of you follow me on facebook
then you know my dog Kula
has gone to that puppy dog heaven in the sky.
It has been two weeks today.
I am feeling better and know that we made the best
decision for him. He was 11 and he could no longer get up
most days because of his arthritis in his back legs.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of him.
He loved the snow, He would stay and play in it all day.
He and I used to sit on this bench in the summer.
I would say to him Do you want to sit on the bench?
H would run and wait for me to sit down, then he would put his
head on my lap or my shoulder. He was such a good boy.
He was forever sneaking up on the bed and putting his head
on one of the pillows, After a while when I got ill and had to have a nap everyday,
I would say do you think it is time for a nap and he would get
on his spot on the bed.
He was great for photo ops and
here he was having a tea party.
It took quite a while to get them settled down for that!
He was a very smart boy,
Many times I would have a Cataplexy episode and fall
and he would lay beside me on the ground or floor,
sometimes lick my face. I felt safe just knowing he was there.
He never left my side. He became very protective of me and
if my husband ever gave me a hug when he was around,
Kula would bark at him, as if to say "Don't hurt her,"
One of his favorite things was to play soccer,
He would do that for hours when he was little.
It was a great game when kids would come to visit him.
He always had Christmas presents to open and these
were his favorites. We would say where are your barkers,
He would go get them, toss them in the air and step on them
until they would bark. Those were his favorite toys.
His favorite thing was to go for a walk.
We could not say the word around him
without taking him for one.
Then he even learned to spell.
We were okay for a bit,
But after a while he figured out what
W A L K spelt, and he would go to the door
and sit and wait for us.
I miss him to pieces, the house is quiet, I have many wonderful
memories. On pinterest lately there are all these pins about
Animal Abuse. It drives me crazy and I can not imagine
anyone being cruel enough to hurt an animal.
You only have to have one to experience
unconditional love. I trained Kula many tricks,
but it is funny because I know I learned
way more from him than he ever did from me.
R.I.P Dear Kula Boy
Until next time,
