I had to say a very heartfelt thank you to all the loving messages regarding my Kira. I had no idea the diary was chosen for diary of the day by Dogster. It has been a very "ruff" (pun totally intended) week and to not have her anymore after almost 16 years is very hard. I remember bringing her home as a puppy. She lived with my mother, which worked out just fine, and taking her in on Monday was heartbreaking.
I know one thing, this community has been amazing and I can't thank you all enough. My heart is just full right now and it really helps to read all of your messages. Hugs to you all, hugs to your fur babies, you never know just how long they will be with you, but enjoy that time while you have it. I was sent this by my cousin the other day.
A DOG FOR JESUS
I wish someone had given Jesus a dog
As loyal and loving as mine
To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine.
As our Lord grew to manhood His faithful dog
Would have followed Him all through the day
While He preached to the crowds and made the sick well
And knelt in the garden to pray.
It is sad to remember that Christ went away
To face death alone and apart
With no tender dog following close behind
To comfort its Master's Heart.
And when Jesus rose on that Easter morn
How happy He would have been
As His dog kissed His hands and barked its delight
For The One who died for all men.
Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine
The old pal so dear to me
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone
Knowing they're in eternity.
Day after day, the whole day through
Wherever my road inclined
Four feet said, "I am coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.

...I found that waiting for me was my sister Brandii! Oh what a reunion we had! We played like we were puppies again, and I could see and I could hear. I had been sick for so long and it was like nothing had happened when I saw her. I felt so good! I saw my daddy, Chet and my grandma and grandpa too! It had been ten years since my daddy died, and 8 years since my grandparents died. I didn't want to leave my mommy but I was feeling so bad, and I think the worst part was that I couldn't see anymore. Now, I can see again. I will have fun seeing everyone I missed so much. I am at the Rainbow Bridge.

Well, as you all know, my sister Brandii died the day after Christmas. I wasn't sure at first what was going on, but my mommy started to cry really hard, and I sniffed Brandii to see what was wrong with her. I didn't see anything wrong at first, because she had just died and it looked like she was sleeping. Then, it hit me, and I started to cry. I cried when mommy was taking her and putting her in the car, and then I cried when she took Brandii out of the car and buried her in the back yard. I cried on the way back to my other house where my other mommy, Jan, was. (Mommy Laurel is who I live with, Mommy Jan is my other mommy, they are mom and daughter, mommy Jan has the two cats) Anyway, I got lots of attention when I got over to mommy Jan's place. Everyone was so sad, including me.
I live over in the retirement community with Mommy Laurel now, and we go on a lot of walks, and my eye allergy has cleared up too! I have a lot of cookie bones to bury, and I hide them all over the house now. And on the screened in porch. It keeps me busy. I don't like being by myself still, but I stay close to mommy here. I miss my other mommy and Brandii, but my other mommy comes to visit often. Even though Brandii and I had our differences, she and I still grew up together. Since we were puppies. I know one day I will see her again, and we will play!
