We lost her on August 27. My Facebook friends know this already.

She had been doing pretty good. I had noticed the tumor had started growing but it was spreading down her leg and not into her rectum which was the normal progression. My hubby was out of town on work and came home on a Thursday. I went to show him big the tumor had gotten and she screamed in pain when I touched her tail. We took her Saturday morning.

I had just brushed her on Tuesday evening and she did not cry like that. So I think it just took off and was into her bones.

Kayos was what the breed should be. Of all my dogs I never had to worry about how she would act, how she would tolerate kids or strangers. She always did the right thing. She was intuitive, she was my partner in my training business, my neutral dog for CGC tests, a therapy dog that people gravitated to. my peacemaker. I honestly do not know anyone that disliked her. She was always social but not to the extreme.

She raised puppies and taught them how to behave in the house. She mothered Mayhem.

Kayos was supposed to be an agility dog but was never able to as she had severe HD. Instead she was an ace tracker, fantastic obedience dog that would have had her UD easily if she could have jumped. Perfect therapy dog.

She was born on January 20, 2003 and passed on August 27, 2016.

She will be forever missed.

I have to share that yesterday my vet's office called. They had her hip. rofl I had wondered what would happen to it. It was titanium and would not reduce to ash obviously. I picked up her cremains the Wednesday after we lost her so I know that had it for a while. I think it would have made me cry if I had known it then but this week I can laugh about it and I think they knew to wait a bit before they told me. The vet tech said we have something that belonged to Kayos. I immediately knew it was her hip. I told them to dispose of it or use it for education if they wanted to. I think it is going to be used to show folks what one looks like and describe the surgery. So Kayos is still serving others. fetch

I am saddened by her loss. There will never be another dog like her in my life. She was truly the dog of my heart. But she is free now and I hope one day to meet her again. And I need to stop crying.

She's ours!!!



She is home!!!



My beautiful girl.

Ahh Kathy, I know the loss is enormous. She had a grand life with you, fancy hip or not. What a wonderful time the two of you had.

Oh Kathy, my heart hurts for you. Wonderful Kayos will forever live on in her stories and beautiful memories. She was, in her own special way, a teacher. You had such a magical bond with Kayos. Please, take good care.
