Rest in Peace Miss Kay.......

This is one of the hardest posts I've had to write for a very long time. We have to say goodbye to one of our favorite girls.....Kay. Kay was a beautiful Akita.....I know we run a husky rescue but when I started volunteering she was there with her son, Kaj. We actually got him adopted and she went to foster. The foster's fell in love with her and were going to adopt her and take her to England with them. That all fell through when the guy lost his job and Kay came back to us.......she was basically the house dog for the last six years. Everyone loved her....on days when volunteers were around they loved to take her for walks or just hang around her. She really was our gentle giant. The last year or two were starting to get hard on her......arthritis in her back legs made it hard for her to walk, but we still tried to get her out as much as possible. The last month or so she has barely been able to get up at all, we would have to literally pick her up to take outside....and then she couldn't stay up. She wasn't eating much and just wasn't Kay. I saw her this morning....brought her some fancy cookies we didn't think she'd eat......she did.....but she just couldn't move. We knew it was coming......she went to sleep peacefully late this afternoon......

We will miss you so much....but at least you can finally romp around at the Rainbow Bridge......

  2. The loss of this big sweet girl is going to leave a giant hole in the heart of Husky Haven. She was gentle and absolutely gorgeous. Poor Twister, I know his heart is breaking. I'm so sorry Beth. I know you and Pat are really feeling this loss.
    Big hugs and soft woos.
    Kay, find Winston and tell him we all miss him and let Tamara know, she is not forgotten.
