|Thank you everyone, for the kind words & lovely sentiments. Your thoughts & prayers are warmly received & much appreciated. Carl & I are doing okay, considering. I still have to go to pulmonary rehab, & Carl & I have 3 other GSDs to care for. There's nothing like the needs of the remaining dogs to keep you in the present. And the 3 GSDs are sad, too, I think. They are unusually quiet. They normally vocalize with almost anything we do, but now they are quiet, except at mealtime. They know, they used to howl every time Kali would leave the house. Now they are quiet, & just watch & wait.|
Tomorrow I will find out if I may return to work, & the results of my testing. And next Wednesday we should receive Kali's ashes. I am trying to find an alternative to a traditional urn. The vet tech at our vets gave us a brochure for a woman who creats gorgeous placques & pendants out of blown glass that actually contain & incorporate some of the ashy remains. The glass is beautiful, but rather pricey. The site is called "Love Ashes", in case anyone else is interested.
Again I thank you for your prayers & your concern. God bless you all! jackie & Carl harris

|Hugs you both! Your Princess Kali is with my Princess Xena, Xena went ahead to scout out the rainbow bridge 2 weeks ago. Both girls are ok hunni, I know how you feel. Your tribute video is beautiful! I can see how much you loved her and her spirit will always be with you both. She was just too well loved to ever be forgotten as was my old girl :o)|
hugs again sweetheart!

|So dreadfully sorry to hear of your sad loss.|
(For a while I carried my girl's leash with me while walking with my other dogs, as I could not bear to see it hanging on it's own). Dog Owners who have loved and lost, can understand the heart-break of others.
I found this poem, which hopefully will bring you some comfort.
May God Bless your lovely girl and keep her in His loving care.
PARTINGS AND GREETINGS
When on the eyes of dearest friends, the marble touch of death descends,
We see them in their last repose,
But when to us those eyelids close – they open somewhere to the light – the glory out beyond the night….
They wake where life’s dark journey ends – to other joys and past good friends – who stand before their opening eyes – while we are saying our goodbyes.
