Arrival Story: My sister showed up with a little pup and I fell in love. I asked if there were any left. When we got there, one little dog was in the kennel by herself. So began a great love story. She changed my life. I felt as if we were one from the moment we met. Through puppy kindergarten classes to Obedience classes, to her first swim, everything was special with her. When she was diagnosed with fibrosarcoma in 2003 I was beside myself. We took her to Colorado University where she underwent surgery and radiation. She was there for almost 2 months. I went out to see her every weekend, I couldn't wait for Friday to get here. When she came home, she bounced back to her old self quickly, even though she had to learn to walk on her left front leg again. They had to remove most of her shoulder to get the cancer out. Her chances of surviving this were excellent. Before long she was running and playing, her old self again. We had a glorious summer and a great Christmas that year. In March of 2004 she suddenly stopped eating, we had x-rays taken again and found some spots on her lungs and in her heart. We rushed her back to Colorado. She had another kind of cancer. They tried everything they could to save her. They did surgery to remove the fluid from her lungs and we were going to start Chemo. We were there early on a Saturday morning to pick her up to go home. They came out and told us she had collapsed during the night and the only thing keeping her alive was the oxygen chamber. When the fluid was removed, somehow the tumor spread completely over her heart. She could not breathe on her own anymore. I truly believe she held on just for me, so we could be with each other one more time, so we could say goodbye. I could not let her suffer, so I made the only choice I could make for her. I said goodbye, for now, we will see each other again one day. I will love her forever, she is my Heart and Soul. She will always be my Forever Love. Life will never be the same without her.
I love you Always, my sweet ^Kiss^ ... Mom
Bio: Born March 9th, 1999 ~ Went home to the Lord April 10th, 2004My Angel ^Kissa^ grew up with her sister Kiana. My sister Amy lived only a short ways from us and the two pups saw and played with each other almost daily. After ^Kiska^ returned to Heaven, whenever my sister brought her over, it was so hard for her. She looked for ^Kiss^ everywhere and then she would just lay by their favorite tree. She would not play and was so depressed. It boke my heart to watch her. She would not even play with KJ or Rain for quite a while. Eventually they won her over. Now she comes to play with them. It is wonderful to see her, and at the same time, it hurts. She and ^Kiss^ were so close, all you had to do was say their name to each other and they went nuts. Howling and jumping all over the place. I wish I could tell her and she would know that she also will see her sister again someday. On Aug. 11, 2010 Kiana joined her sister at the Rainbow Bridge...together again...I have included some of their pics together in Kiskas dogsterplus photobook.
