It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this today. Yesterday was a very sad day. I lost my very best friend, Keeda. She was such a great dog. I loved her so much. Last night she was with me in my craft room just before she passed. I could never really go too far without her being at my feet or side.
When we first got Keeda, 12 years ago, both the boys were still at home. I thought that I had to prepare for the Empty Nest Syndrome for when the kids left home. She definately made it a bit easier. It was funny, when the kids did leave home, I found out who the real culprit was that always put dirty socks in various corners of my house. I always blamed Rob. It must of been her way of getting back at him for all the tricks that he would play on her.
It is going to be very strange opening the pond this year without her. She loved the pond. Every morning she would put one paw into the water and take a drink. Many times the fish would swim around her. It really was a cute site to see.
I know she had a good life. I am going to miss all the little routines that she had. I'm even going to miss the annoying scratching that she just started doing the last few months. At least she is not going to suffer.
I am going to miss you Keeda Marie.
