Shattered

Kaia
6/20/2019-7/22/2020

My beloved Kaia died very suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday afternoon taking a huge chunk of my heart and soul with her.  She brought nothing but joy, exuberance and love into the world.  I don't think I will ever be able to fill the void she leaves.

We have taken her to Cornell for a necropsy to try to find out why she left us so soon, but it won't bring her back.

  5. Oh Chris, every one of us dog people know just how devastated you are. Information won’t bring her back, but can hopefully answer the “WHY?!?!?!?” screaming in your head. So beautiful; SO young.

  10. Kris. I’m so sorry very for your loss. That “heavy heart” is terrible but take solace in that you gave her a wonderfully enriched year full of love. She will hold a special place in our heart as well, as a beloved daughter of our Simon.

  14. My heart aches for you. My Girl Scout is a real look alike, especially her sweet expression, but also her glorious tail. And sometimes, despite her usual exuberance, she seems so sensitive and strangely vulnerable. But they are each so unique as our love for them is. I’m interested to hear why, even though it can be such a frustrating rabbit hole.

    I am so so sorry. What a terrible shock. They will find the reason but it won’t take away the headache. Another friend lost her dog very suddenly as well. A miniature Aussie Shepherd. It was food related and heart related. Devastating news. You are in my thoughts.

  26. Oh no Kris, I am very sorry!! SO unfair to lose your sweet girl unexpectedly. From one animal lover to another, all we can do when they leave us is know we gave them a life full of love & cherish the beautiful photos & memories. There are no words that help, I know.

  27. Oh no!! Can't imagine what happened. Hopefully when they tell you you will have some closure. So sorry for your loss. I will miss seeing her antics.

    A part of life that is so very difficult.
    My heart is with you, Kris.
