Our girl, Kenai


Our sweet dog, Kenai, peacefully passed away today. I cannot believe the tremendous effect it has had on our family. I suppose the effect is reflective of what she gave to our family. Kenai was a happy, loyal and loving animal. She was tender and sweet to Kaitlin, despite the numerous times playing dress up. Jimmy and I have cried together more at this event than any other in our life together. We loved Kenai. She brought such a special spirit into our home. We will miss Kenai dearly. I have no doubt that she is cheering up many children in heaven. Jimmy and I both admitted to each other that her heart was clearly for children. She would follow Kaitlin around and just kiss her to pieces. I am grateful that I was granted a short time with, Kenai, the angel dog. Rest in peace, sweet girl.

I am so sorry Stephanie. Losing a dog hurts incredibly but know that she is up in heaven playing fetch with the Father! Praying for you and your family! xo Sarah

Stephanie I'm sorry for your family's loss :'(. I'm grateful you shared a little of her with us. Also I'm glad you're being able to enjoy the Spirit so strongly this season. We all love you and miss you.

Stephanie, I am so sorry. I drug my feet on getting a dog mostly because at some point you have to say good-bye. Sounds like she was a lovely addition to your family.

I am so sorry for your loss! We lost our dog earlier this year and it is so hard. Big hugs!

Oh, I'm sorry. I think sometimes people underestimate the absolute unconditional love we get from our pets. Hope you all feel better soon.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
