Katie

For those who remember Katie, she went to sleep a few nights ago and went to the Rainbow Bridge. It took a few before I could post.


She was 12, almost 13, not bad for a seven year old that they thought wouldn't have long due to the damage to her heart from heartworms. When I took her in she'd never been allowed in a house, had run free and did what she wanted, which is what got her in trouble. She had heavy heartworm infestation, but due to never having been in a house had also never been in a crate, so I had to quickly crate train her before she could begin treatment. She was skin and bones when she came. I wish I'd taken a current picture, but I hadn't. She'd greyed up a lot more, had slowed down, but still could get up by herself and wander around the fenced yard. We really miss her.


RIP Katie

I'm so very sorry for your loss of your precious Katie.

I've always felt the ones that need us the most, always leave the biggest paw prints on our heart. Katie sounds like she was one of those special dogs.

Godspeed sweet girl.

She was so sweet, so good with my granddaughter. So patient with River as a puppy who certainly tried her patience. He walks around looking for her. Dakota now lives behind me with my daughter and was a little confused for a day or two, but River still looks for her. It will take time for all of us.

I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Katie. I remember Katie's story and her heartworm treatment very well. She had wonderful life with you and went so peacefully. It is never easy for us left behind, hugs to you and your pups.
