Run Free, K

A blogger community rallies when one of our members hurts.

To see K’s special eyes looking down on you, you need only look up at that Colorado sky and see the new bright star shining down.

And remember all of the stages of her too brief life here on earth.

We are thinking of you all – KB, R and Runner.

Special thanks to Ann at Zoolatry for all of her special art work.  Except, of course, for the special art in K’s eye.  That art work was created by a higher power to let us all know how special our animal friends are.

    We share our Blog Family’s sense of loss. Your tribute to K and the amazing lessons she taught us on this journey makes momma hug me tightly and call the others in just to say “I love you!”

    I cried so much reading that post.

    The pain of having to let them go is excruciating and deep. Some are never the same again and avoid loving another being, a mistake, because it’s the only thing that cuts through the grief. The interesting thing is when we reach the other side of this life we’ll look back and wonder how we couldn’t have known that the most powerful force in the universe would never have separated us from those we’ve shared this life with forever, just temporarily. It’s love. The only thing we take with us when we go.

    For the family of beloved K.

    So much sadness in the pet blogosphere lately. My thoughts and prayers are with them. K’s loss reminds me that it’s important to let people know how much you appreciate them NOW, as opposed to later. Please give Rusty, Cheoah, Natasha, Qannik, Kiska, and Frankie hugs and kisses for me. I enjoy reading about them so much, even if I don’t know them personally.

    I could hardly keep the tears from falling while reading this beautiful tribute to K. It is so very hard to accept that one you love so much is ready to cross over, much harder to be with them as you let them go. My firm belief that, although physically gone, they can still be around you when you least expect them, makes letting go hurt just a little bit less.
    Run swift K, young and healthy again!

    We’re wooing sad woos to K’s pack, and are soooo grateful that they shared her with us for as long as they possible could. Run free, K, we’re watching for your star.

    I know I’m going to miss her like crazy! I’ve loved seeing her pictures on KB’s blog for a very long time. I knew it was coming soon and I still cried buckets last night!

    She will be missed by so many. She was quite the inspiration.
