Hi there pretty girl! Well you know what it is....the 65th Sunday you have been gone from me. I MISS YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH! I cannot believe you have been away from me that long. I also want to thank you and the Lord for answering our prayers for Matt to get that job. That was amazing Kuda Bear. I had prayed long and hard for that one. I know your watching out over me. Today when I visited you I told you how I would love to put my arms around you and hug and kiss you just like old times Koodie. Gosh I miss that. My life would be totally perfect if you were here. I know you know that too. I know you know how hard it is on me. You should feel very special knowing that I will never let another dog take your place or fill that emptiness I feel in my heart. My heart belongs to you. I will never forget you no matter what. It makes me feel warm inside knowing I had you in my life and the special bond we shared and how special you were to me and I was to you. You still are in my heart and always will be. I cried the other night missing you and telling Dad how very long it had been since I walked you. I hope your missing me just as much. I am truly hurting inside for you still. I go on because I must and Cosmo and Karlee need me. When my journey is over I will be so glad to have you at my side. Please continue to watch out over us always...we need you and I need Cosmo with me. He loves Karlee. I so wish you could have been here for her. You would have loved her. She is a lot like you....wanting all my attention. You play hard until I get there. I miss and love you lots. I wish you were here. I will continue to remember you and think of you each and everyday. Keep us blessed.

Hi there my pretty girl....I sure miss ya! Tonight at 10pm marks the 64th Sunday I have been away from you. That is in 3 minutes. GOSH I MISS YOU SOOOO VERY VERY MUCH!! I dread the 10pm time every Sunday knowing you took your last breath and left me. I really truly believe you didn't want to go, wondered how I would go on without you, if I'd get another puppy, and wondered how you would go on without being able to be with me. Oh Koodie I wonder so much each day about you. I miss you terribly and always will. Everyday I remember how it felt to kiss and hug you and have you near. I picture me hugging you and how I felt. Gosh it felt good. I also tell myself that I will see you again and that you are here in spirit. If I find out different I will be crushed. I think thats what keeps me going everyday. I know you want me to be happy but it so hard without you here Kuda. Even the sound in my voice isn't as up beat and cheerful as when you were here. I know I will never be the same. My mind is constantly on you and wondering when Cosmo's last day will be. Your missing out on sooo much Koodie. I wish you could have seen Karlee. Cosmo loves her so much and likes to lay by her. One good bonus is when we get a sitter Grandma comes and he doesn't have to be left alone. I love it, he loves...everyone loves it!! I sure hope you are watching out over us cause we need you! I hope you and the Lord are going to bless us this new year and give Dad that new opportunity. We need some success and happiness Kuda Bear! I will never forget you or quit talking to you everyday. Be a good girl until I get there. I love and miss you.....

What a beautiful dog! I lost my dog recently, a huge German Shepherd Simba. Your memorial brought me to tears and you will see her again....No one really knows the grief , the deep void and loss of unconditional love. Your memorial to her and your memories will keep her alive until you meet again Kiana

Hi there my pretty girl! I sure miss you! Tonight at 10pm marks the 63rd Sunday you have been gone. YOUR MISSING OUT KUDA! I still visit you everyday and participate in the candle lighting ceremony on Mondays at 8pm. You are thought of, loved, and missed each and everyday too of course. There will never be a day that you aren't. This was the second Valentines Day since you have been gone too, and it was very hard. I got Karlee a stuffed dog that looks a lot like you. I told Dad its a girl and when she gets older I hope she is attached to it and wants to take it everywhere she goes. I told him, her name is Koochy....so then Karlee will have you in her life too:) I MISS YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH!!!!!! I am sure you know that! Life is hard without you and always will be. I wish you were here with me Koodie! Its ironic...the other night instead of your solar star being on in your memorial, the one landscaping light was on. It kept flashing at us just like your solar star. The last time I looked before going to bed it was on very steady and bright and very slowly it faded to off. I stared and weeped. Even 20 years from now...I will cry for you. You are the last thing I think of when going to bed and the first thing I think of when I wake up. JUST REMEMBER NO DOG CAN TAKE YOUR PLACE AND NO ONE CAN FILL THAT VACANCY I FEEL IN MY HEART WITHOUT YOU! You and Cosmo will always have my heart. I will never be the same cause a part of me went with you when you left. What we shared was unique and special and your life will be kept alive through all those memories. You play hard until I get there and be a good girl Koochy. I love and miss you lots!!!

Hi there pretty girl...how are ya? I sure miss you!! Tonight at 10pm (in 10 minutes) marks the 62nd Sunday you have been gone. I wish you were here each and everyday. I had a wonderful dream of you last night. I so want to hug and kiss you again....its been a very LONG time Kuda Bear. The dreams of you are so real and then I wake up kind of sad but yet happy that I got to feel those feelings again of you next to me. I know you miss me very very much. I still wonder what you were thinking as you left me. Did you know it would be hard on me? Did you know I would miss you and not want anyone to replace you or fill that vacancy in my heart. Those are my feelings....for some reason it was your time and I told you to go ahead and go and I would survive. Thats exactly the word to describe me currently...surviving. I love having Karlee around and Cosmo too, but I miss you terribly...I so wish you could have met the baby and seen her get bigger. I still look forward to my alone time with Cosmo boy and our walks too. I will always want that time. You and him were my world, my everything, and my closest family of all. The unconditional love you gave was so heart warming too. I was thinking how I loved going out with friends knowing when the night ended I came home to you and Cosmo....and you were always just waiting for me to arrive. That made me feel so good inside. I thought of you all the time while being gone and still do actually. We had to leave Cosmo the other day and I thought about him the whole time and how lonely he probably was without me near. I knew you'd be watching over him. I sure hope you and the Lord are working together to provide success, happiness, and guidence in this new year...cause we need it. I hope you are watching out over all of us too....you are our angel Koodie. I miss holding you, going for walks with you, having you in the car, kissing you, I MISS EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU OF COURSE!!!!! I will admit like I did before....Life is very very hard without you here. Life will never be the same and I will miss and love you each and everyday and look forward to seeing you when my time ends. Until then Kuda you be a good girl. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU LOTS!!!!!!!!!

Hi there my pretty girl..how are ya? Tonight at 10pm (8:40pm now) marks the 61st Sunday I have not gotten to go to sleep with you. Today was also the super bowl so the big Mom was here watching Karlee. We came home early and I was happy to come home to Cosmo and Karlee. I MISS YOU SOOOO VERY MUCH! I was talking to you today remembering you here and missing you.....I know you knew I loved you very very much and that life would be hard for me. I wonder if you thought it would be easy for me to continue on or if you knew I would be very very sad. Well here I am....tomorrow marks 14 months you have been gone and I miss you just as much as the day you left. I hope you know I am living my life cause thats what has to happen....but I so look forward to seeing you again when my journey is over. I cried yesterday as I sat and looked at pictures that were saved to my flash drive. You were playing on November 24th of 2007 and December 2nd died on me. I just didn't really see you that sick. Gosh I relive that moment over and over. I try to remember all the good but sometimes find myself remembering you leaving me. I replay that whole weekend and moments in my mind. Things are getting pretty stressful here.....the economy is bad, we must decide what Dad will do about his business and what will happen to us if things get worse. I am thankful I have a job but there are no promises. On Friday after school I started to shed tears thinking about you knowing you weren't at home for me and were missing out. If you are here Kuda....please give me a sign other than just dreams. I love those dreams but please watch over us and help us. We need you to be our angel. You will always be the number one girl and no one will ever replace you. My heart will always belong to you and Cosmo only. You were my babies that kept me going and going and now when times are tough only Cosmo sees me through. Please guide us in the right path. I LOVE and MISS you tons Koodie. I wish I could give you a big big Kuda Bear hug and kiss. You be a good girl.....until next time play hard with all those other kids.

Hi there pretty girl! Tonight at 10pm marks the 60th Sunday you have been away from me. When I visited your memorial I told you how someday I would be standing there saying its the 600th Sunday or the 6000 Sunday....well I am not sure on the math there. I really don't care to think about how I have to live my life without you. Gosh I miss you so very very much Koodie. I have been trying to keep my spirits up and having a positive attitude but its sooo hard to do. I know I must for little Karlee. We have done some more home projects here and you are missing out on them. I try to keep my mind busy. The last few days have been very very cold so Cosmo and I haven't gotten to go on our long walk...just a short one. I carry him if his paws get cold too:) I love our walks and am just as disappointed as him if we can't go for a long one. I wish you were here. Its been very very hard and I think you know that. You came and visited me in my dreams and I so LOVE that, but of course I walk up to being sad realizing you aren't here with me. Cosmo has been sheading so much lately. He really didn't shead much, but this times its a lot. I told him how it was about as much as the Kuda Bear! That is one thing I can assure you...you will always be thought of, talked about, and remembered for as long as I live. No one will ever take your spot or my heart. Karlee sometimes stares at your picture and I tell her about you. She is starting to notice Cosmo too. Cosmo loves her. I so wish you could have met her. How I wish those dreams were real of hugging and kissing you just like you were here. I sure hope you are watching over all of us trying to steer us in the right direction and be successful and happy this new year. I know your my angel now pretty girl. I need that Cosmo boy. You play hard with all those furry kids....and if you see Bubsey Annie NO FIGHTING. Be a good girl for Momma...I can't wait to see you when my journey is over. I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!

Hi there Kuda Bear....how are ya honey? Well tonight marks the 59th Sunday since you have been gone. I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH! I think about you each and everyday. I so wish you were here. Each and everyday you have been gone I think its going to be Cosmo's last day with me. It scares me to death to think how I will live without the 2 of you forever. I need him so very much even with the new baby. He is my escape from my stressful life. I absolutely LOVE our walks everyday. Today when I got out of the shower I looked out the bathroom window and had to do a double take. I mistaked Cosmo for you. He had your exact stance pretty girl. It brought me to tears thinking about you and picturing you here. Its been so very very long and hard without you and it will always be. I think you know just how special, important, and loved you were by me. I would have done anything to save you and keep you here. I know you are here in spirit, but its just not the same. LIfe will never be the same for me. I sometimes wake up as a stranger. Each day I wake up to the problems of my life, but the first thing I think of is how your not here to help me face the day. I go to bed at night and your the last thing thats in my mind as I drift off to sleep. Oh how I miss you. You knew life would be hard for me and that I'D MISS YOU! JUST LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL MEMORIAL MADE FOR YOU! There will never be another Kuda Bear and I will never try to let a dog replace you or fill that vacancy in my life. I don't want to do that. I will continue my journey with Cosmo and all those human kids knowing when it ends I get to be with you. I look forward to that day, to hug and kiss you Koodie. I still talk to you everyday and I know you listen. Since you have been gone, times have been very tough too. I still break down and cry and I know I always will. You be a good girl and play hard with all those furry kids pretty girl. LOVE AND MISS YOU TONS KOOCHY!

Hi there my pretty girl...I sure miss you! Well tonight marks that 58th Sunday you have been gone from me. I miss you as much as the minute you left me. I have been thinking and crying a lot on my walks with Cosmo about how I really thought I had spent a lot of time with you but now that you are gone I wish I would have spent even more time with you. I wish you were here to hug and kisss Kuda Bear. I know you know I was very very good to you and got you all you wanted and you loved me dearly just like I loved you. I sooo wish you were still with me. I have had a very hard new start to the new year.....nothing is going our way here at this house....which it never does. I hope you are watching out over all of us and trying to ensure us of a good successful new year with many blessing and not much stress. I guess whats the point in being negative its not doing anything or getting us anywhere. I hope you are really watching Cosmo, because I need him. He is my little stress reliever and has helped me survive after you. I sure hope you know just how much I miss you and how my life has changed. Its almost like I'm a stranger to my own life trying to adjust. I really am not even enjoying Karlee as much as I should be! I am very happy about having her! Cosmo loves her. I sure wish you could have seen her. I still believe you had something to do with her coming to me. I hope you have adjusted to your new home....something tells me you haven't since I'm not there. I will join you someday..I promise, so you play hard until I get there. Be a good girl Koodie...I love and miss you lots!

Hi there pretty girl.....well tonight at 10pm marks the 57th Sunday you have been gone from me. I miss you so very very much. The holidays have come and gone along with the 2008 year and I am sooo glad! Dec 07 to Dec 08 proved to be the hardest year of my life besides having Karlee. I know I strive to be positive but its so hard when I have been sailing on this sea of depression for sooo long! I hope 2009 is better but I am not holding my breath! It seems its not in the cards to have any good luck around here at this household. I am very very tired of it! I hope you and the lord have it planned for some relief come this new year. Tomorrow is back to reality and the grind. I love my job, but I also love being home with Karlee and Cosmo and not having a schedule and sleeping in too. Its wonderful now when we leave Karlee here cause the Old Mom comes and watches her and Cosmo. He hates to be left and I hate leaving him as well. If its really possible about looking over me, I have you noticed how bad I am hurting and how much bad luck we have had? I hope you and the Lord have something better planned. I know you would want me to be happy but its hard to be happy without you here with me. I try to be happy about having Karlee and still having Cosmo. You leaving me has been so very very hard on me. I know you can see me missing you and I will until I see you again Koodie. I have been thinking about your life a lot and you came to me in my dreams. It really put a smile on my face. I wish you were here. This was the second Christmas without you and with everyone being sick my time off wasn't the best. YOU PLAY AND RUN HARD KOOCHY UNTIL NEXT TIME.....I LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY VERY MUCH PRETTY GIRL.

You sure are a beautiful little fur baby!!!! Have fun up there and I hope you and Chakka have met and keep each other company like your mama and I. Love you, Koochy! MIchelle, Chakka's mama xxoo

I MISS YOU KUDA BEAR! Tonight (right now) at 10pm marks the 56th Sunday you have been gone from me. Its been the hardest thing in the world. I know you miss me. I hope you are playing hard up there with all the furry kids of all the Moms on critters. Today has been 1 year since Chakka has been gone from her Mom. Her Momma misses her very very much. I hope you two are keeping each other company. Her Momma is a very special lady and Chakka was very special to her. Cosmo got a bath today. He has had a few since you have been gone. The only thing is, we bought a shower sprayer that comes down now so it makes it much easier. I also put a towel in the tub for him. You know how he was scared to death of baths and water. It was a beautiful day out today so we went on a long walk.....he loves his long walks. Lately its been so cold that we haven't been able to go on such a long one. Tonight at 10pm I was on your site and Chakka's Momma had signed your guestbook, thats so ironic. She had a very hard day today just like I did on your 1 year mark. I sure hope you are watching out over all of us here cause we need you to be our angel. I am still sailing on the sea of depression and it looks as if it will continue into the new year. I was thinking our luck would change. I sure wish you were here. I would give you a big big hug with all that fur of yours and a big Kuda Bear kiss. Cosmo would kiss you and lick your ears. Cosmo loves the baby. He kisses her a lot and when she cries. He sleeps a lot by her bassonette too in our room. I ask him if thats his baby a lot. I so so wish you could have seen her. She is beautiful just like you. She is like you in a lot of ways. Please watch over her and Cosmo. You know Momma needs Cosmo...he is my stress reliever. You are a great role model for your little sister. I LOVE AND MISS YOU VERY VERY MUCH! BE A GOOD GIRL UNTIL I GET THERE KOODIE! PLAY HARD WITH ANNA CAKES!

Melissa, Oh my goodness I just realized that I missed Koochy one year mark... I am so sorry that I didn't write to you on that day. This whole time I have kept that in my mind to be the one thing that I don't forget and was to let you know that I was thinking about you... :*( It is just so hard... I guess with Windsor being sick I just forgot.. i am so very sorry.... please forgive me......
12-27-2008 11:44 AM -- By: denise, From:
Hi Melissa, I hope you had a nice Christmas. Things have been a little tough here. We suspect that Windsor has Melanoma. He is having surgery on Monday...I couldn't wait to get this year behind me to hopefully take some of this heartache and with a new year it be different... looks like I'm going to be up against another battle, only this time I'm not going to choose Chemo for Windsor because of his age. I will bring him home, love him and then he will go be with Wallace. I will have lost my two best friends in more than likely a year of each other...that has always been my biggest fear.. My heart is aching so much. Windsor is my oldest, most loyal friend. He is just over 13 and we have been through so much together, even more than Wallace and I. Please keep us in your Thougts and Prayers.....I thank you from the bottom of my heart...Denise

I miss you Kuda Bear!!!! Christmas Eve and Christmas Day came and gone and it was a very depressing time. Obviously from the simple fact you weren't here with me for the second year. I can't believe its been 2 years, just because you died right before the first one last year. Cosmo loved opening his stocking. We actually put our decorations and tree up this year, for the simple fact we now have a baby in the house and that would only be the right thing to do for her. We had no family over or went anywhere because everyone was sick and we didn't want our baby Karlee sick. So it was very very depressing here, just the 4 of us. That sounds weird cause with you here it was just the 4 of us. And just think its still a girl and boy for the kids:) I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH KOODIE! Since you have passed I have been in a deep depression not living for myself but for everyone else. I guess thats all I know to do through all of this. The only good thing in the last year was Karlee being born and having Dad and Cosmo in my life, otherwise its been very sad. Last night I pictured you in the house again, which I always do, but I kind of was in a phase. I miss you coming up to me, sitting pretty in front of me, me asking "what do you want Kuda Bear" and you pawing as if to say "come follow me Momma and I'll show you." I would say that to you too, "Show me what you want" and I'd follow...wish you were here doing that. I missed you opening your stocking too. It was hanging up and always will. Cosmo enjoyed his treats and all the ham he got to eat. Remember the last Christmas Eve you were here, we had ham and you loved it. Cosmo has been opening a stocking 11 years now, I think he pretty much has it down. He was real anxious while I opened Karlee's for her too. I think he thought it was yours. Remember you each used to snoop in each others stockings after opening your own. I wish you were here to give me a BIG Kuda Bear hug with all that fur and one of those special kisses. I have prayed and prayed for the Lords help and for you to watch over us and I hope you two are but as for the guidance, I think I will just let it run its course, because at this moment in time I am not sure what God had in store for us. I can't imagine 2009 will be any better. You be a good girl until we meet again and play hard with all those new furry kids and all those furry kids from the Old Mom's house. I miss and love you dearly pretty girl!!

I want to wish you and Karlee a wonderful Christmas. We have both seen two Christmasses without our beloved furchildren. It is not that much easier this time around is it? Regale little Karlee with stories of Koochy and keep her memory alive. Teach her to love all of god's creations, especially those without a voice.
All the best for 2009.

I was reading your entries in Koochy's memorial and I see that you are really having a difficult time. I so know how you feel. I hope that you are doing better today. Today was hard for me, but hopefully the days will get easier. Melissa, please try to have the best Christmas you can with Karlee and know that Koochy is up there, watching...wanting you to be happy. I know it's hard. Good luck to you, girl. I totally get it.
