A Memorial for Kaddy
On Sunday, March 22, 2009 we lost our baby girl Kaddy, who succumbed to congestive heart failure. She died 3 months short of her 13th birthday and as much as we all wanted her to live forever, 12.8 years is pretty good for a Bulldog. We are all heart broken and miss her terribly. She was one-of-a-kind who touched us all. She was a sweetheart who was loved by all who met her. She was as kind and loving a creature that ever walked this earth.
She never suffered, never lost her will to live, or her spirit, enthusiasm, playfulness, and desire to be with us. That all changed the last week when she stopped eating and just wasn't the same old Kaddy. On Sunday she was in distress and she gave us "the look." It killed my husband and I to have to put her to sleep - we were wistful in hoping she would die of old age one night in her sleep, but not naive to think we wouldn't do what was right by her. She was everything to us and we miss her terribly. Our home is empty and lonely without her. We bought her back in 1996 when she was 10 weeks old from a family in Petal, MS. Looking back we believe it was fate that brought her to us as we poured every ounce of love and care into her so she could have a great life. She brought us so much love, joy and happiness - she changed our lives and us forever. She was not just a dog but a special member of our family. Goodbye sweet Kaddy, we love and miss you.
Rest in Peace Kaddy
