In honor of Paws: July 1996 - today

My Labbies
Paws and Bear 
Coronado Beach, California 2008

Paws joined her sister, Bear, today.  She was 14 1/2 years old and my dearest friend.  Both the gifts and the loss are immeasurable.  

I love this photo of my two old sisters taken on one of those perfect days.   They sat and stood there for quite some time that morning, comfortable together. 

Sempre Fidelis - Always Faithful


  1. oh no I am so sad for you hang in there and God Bless Paws!

  2. I am so sad for your loss. I know that my dog is a most special person to me. My life would change with out her.

  3. Kim, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. What a special picture.

  4. that photograph is perfection. I am so deeply sorry that you lost your baby today. the pain.... oh, the pain. I'm thinking that there was one very happy reunion in heaven today when Paws saw Bear again....
    hugs to you,

  5. Such a precious photo of your two sweeties enjoying the day together ~ I am so sorry to hear of Paws' passing! I know exactly what you mean when you say "the gifts and loss are unmeasurable". We lost our lab Bentley 2 years ago at 11 1/2 and this past December adopted a sweet lab Ernest who turned 12 last month. In my thoughts ...Deb.

  6. Dear Kim,
    So sorry to hear your news. We understand your grief having lost our Katie a few years ago. They become a part of our families don't they?

  7. Dear Kim
    Thinking of you today... a beautiful photo of your sweet Paws... finally resting and always protecting and comforting you... xxx Julie

    RIP, sweet Paws.

  9. So sorry for your loss. As a fellow paw lover I can only imagine how hard things are now. They fill our days with such love and joy, the vacuum left behind can be overwhelming. Time does help and fond memories too. Thinking of you xox

  10. Blessings to you during this difficult time. That is such a gorgeous photo of the two of them- may you look back at it often to remember the joy they brought to you.

  11. This breaks my heart. He loved you as much as you loved him. May you smile at every photo and sweet memory that you shared. <3

  12. My heart is breaking for you! Our sweet dogs are in deed "always faithful" I un-officially follow your blog, so I'm familiar with your story and the life of your dogs...each one a special member of your family! My prayers are with you!
