On May 21, 2013, I had to put my dog down. He was suffering from urinary stones in his bladder and penis. He was 9 1/2 years old. He would have to endure surgery and more pain. With my work schedule I would not be able to take care of him like he should be. It would cost $1700 that I don't have. I was with him at the end. I held him, talked to him and hugged him while he was euthanized. He went quietly, quickly and peacefully. I felt him go limp and breathe his last breath. I cried. I'm still crying.
My husband brought him home to me 4 months after the death of our son. Our son died on a Wyoming highway. His friend was driving. No drugs, or alcohol involved. A single car accident. No one knows why. I am still grieving my son. So when Kimo passed it was like taking a time machine back 9 1/2 years.
Kimo was my "lifesaver", he gave me a reason to live. A purpose to focus on. He was such a beautiful little spirit. It feels so strange in the house without him. It feels so empty. He was so smart, loving and always a little gentleman. He will always be missed. Daisy, our other dog misses him too.
Please say a prayer for Ronnie and Kimo.
