   Leave a bone for Kaya 1996-2011

football head, cutie, pooch, dog, mooch, poochikiki and any other jibberish that comes to mind.

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:

August 5th 1996

Food and attention, and everyone being home so she doesn't have to wait at the door.

People leaving the room as soon as she sits down with them.

Favorite Toy:
Anything with a squeaker.

Favorite Food:
Steak! Kaya is currently eating Fromm Four Star kibble.

Favorite Walk:
It doesn't matter, as long as she's with her people (or any people).

Best Tricks:
Shake-a-paw, Speak, Kisses, Go get your toy, Go to your bed, Where's Mommy/Daddy? etc. Kaya has learned quite a bit of English in her thirteen years and so you can pretty much just talk to her normally and she'll understand.

Arrival Story:
We got Kaya when she was three from some people who couldn't take care of her anymore. She had come for a visit first, and her old owners had picked her back up after. When she came again to stay, she waited at the front door for a few days after, wondering when she was getting picked back up. After that she settled in just fine. We have had her now for more than eleven years.

Kaya has arthritis and degenerative joint disease, but she doesn't let that get her down! She takes medications in cheese slices to keep her feeling like a puppy. Kaya turned 14 years old on August 5th 2010! She had a hamburger as a cake, mmm it was down the hatch in a matter of seconds. She's a happy old girl, and has become more vocal in her old age. While she used to only bark at the door or (reluctantly) when we told her to speak, now she woofs whenever she feels like it, such as when you leave the room without her, when Dexter blocks her view of the kitchen counter or just randomly for no obvious reason. Then she just smiles and wags until you come over and pet her. Everybody loves Kaya!

Forums Motto:
Too cute for my own good!

Kaya's Thoughts

A teenager!

Yesterday was Kaya's 13th birthday! She celebrated with a swimming trip and mini 'cake' made of pumpkin and dog treats. No new toys since she has dozens already, but we brought out her old mousy and sheep toys that she hadn't seen forever and she was very excited to see them! Kaya has officially become a teenager and she is still having fun and enjoying life. If she were a human, she would be starting grade eight in the fall, that's a long time! Happy Birthday Beautiful!

I found this poem that I wrote in grade nine, I think, so it's no longer acurate with her age or anything but I thought I'd post it:


Imagine a beautiful woman, with hair as white as snow,
Imagine that she looks up at you, and her eyes just seem to know.
She smiles a smile you just can’t resist,
And the next thing you know, you’ve been tenderly kissed,
By a creature you thought, that couldn’t exist
A creature that just seems to know.

She knows what you’re thinking, you tell to your friends,
They nod in agreement, the fun never ends,
With your ten-and-a-half-year-old, wait! 74!
Young yet old lady, asleep on the floor.

Asleep? Wait a minute, she’s opened her eyes,
Lifted her head, and what a surprise,
She’s awake! And she’s watching you, wriggling with glee,
You can tell that she’s thinking “They’re looking at me!”

For a dog’s greatest pleasure, you will soon see,
Is your attention, love, an occasional pee,
Kisses! Food! Toys and her ball!
But absolutely, most of all,
Having company from one and from all.

Imagine this beauty, looking at you,
Expecting your greatness, she knows you’ll come through,
For you’re her big sister, her master, her friend,
And she will be with you, right through ‘till the end.
