Koa is already nine months old and while we have only had her for seven of those 9 months, time has certainly flown by. Last year at this time, Kaiser and Nala went downhill fast, back to back, and by the Fall of 2018 we were without our doggies. It is incredible how we are all capable of loving, suffering loss, grieving and eventually, however hard as the while process may have been, moving on. I longed for little Koa, and later Gunner, in our lives and I am thankful every day for their love and companionship. So for today, here is a little tribute to my beautiful puppy – Koa the Boa (or so she was dubbed when she got feisty as a 15 lb armful at twelve weeks), born November 5th, 2018.
