In Memoriam -- Kelsey

We are mourning the recent loss of our Airstreaming pal, Kelsey on 11/9/03 -- she had kidney and lung cancer. We adopted her 2 1/2 years ago when she was 5. Lucky for her, she joined us on every Airstream camping trip we ever took since purchasing our trailer in March, 2002.

The attached photo was taken on her last day -- at Salisbury Beach. We spent the day with her doing all her favorite things -- fishing in the lake, walking in the park, playing in the surf. She will be missed.

She was a lucky dog, and I'm sure she really enjoyed her last years with you. What a great way to spend her last day! You were so lucky to have that opportunity to spend time with her doing what she loved. My heart goes out to you...

Sorry to hear of your loss. Those who aren't owners don't always understand the grief you feel when you lose your 4 legged pals. Few creatures in life can give you unconditional affection like these guys can.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I don't have any pets right now, but I have in the past and know how much they truly are family members.

It sounds like she had a good life, and is probably right now Airstreaming in heaven.

I found this little poem a long time ago, and whenever we lose a pet I go back and read it, and it always brings me to tears, because the sentiment is so true. So although it's about a beloved pet parrot, I wanted to share it:



Under this sod lies a sourdough parrot.
Her heart was gold, pure fourteen carat.
Polly now can spread her wings
Leaving behind her all earthly things.
She ranks in fame as our dear departed,
A just reward for being good-hearted

- from a memorial plaque in a Klondike graveyard

I'm sorry about your loss. You can tell by the smile on her face, she was very happy to have you as her human companions! Thank goodness for all the wonderful people that help take care of God's creatures!

One of my favorite sayings is "the more I know people, the more I like my dog!".

It's hard.

I had to put my Shepherd down 10/9/03 for health problems. She was 11. I saw her the day she was born. She was 5 weeks old when I took her home. I still miss tripping over her.

sorry yukionna, sorry toaster,

I had to put Tessa down last year. Somehow she managed to live for over 14 years, but I'm not sure how. At 1 she was abandoned on the side of the road in minus 30 deg C weather which is when we adopted her. At 4 she was hit by a car and lost her hind leg and 1/2 tail. (40 stitches) At 7 she was kicked by a horse and couldn't move for a week. When she was 8 she was attacked by 4 coyotes and left for dead before crawling home (100+ stitches) I cursed everytime I had to pay the vet bill. I use to call her the most expensive mutt alive. I miss her.

My condolences.

bbb

Wow, condolances to all. bbb, are you sure your dog wasn't a cat? Sounds like she used up at least nine lives! What a survivor.

I feel for you, toaster. Our Eskimo girl Alki we picked out from the litter before her eyes were open, and the breeder sent us baby pictures in the mail every week until she was ready to go home. She's been with us 9 years now, and I can't even stand to think she won't live forever.

Stay strong and remember the good times, all of you...
