Kia


Well, we had to put Kia to sleep yesterday morning. We did it in the back of the Expedition because she loved to go for rides. Mike held her head while I scratched her back. It was one of the hardest decisions we've ever had to make. She went downhill suddenly on Tuesday and we knew it was time. Mike made a box for her and we buried her next to one of her favorite apple trees beside the pond where she grew up. (She used to pick apples off of those trees and then eat the whole apple, core and all.) It's really hard for us to be at home right now because we remember things she's done in each room. Given time, it will get better, but we're missing her an awful lot right now. Thank you all for your prayers. They have been felt.


Now, enough with the depressing posts. I'll try to post something happier next time....

Oh Kim- I am so sorry. I had to have my dog put down a few months ago and it was soooo painful. Jessie was my best friend. I understand your pain.

I will be praying!!!!
