Memories of Kodiak (Karamad’s Sweet DragonHeart)
May 26, 2007 – November 22, 2013
Ralph has always been the dog lover, I was always the cat
lover. Then....I met Kodiak (Oso) and he stole my heart.
From day one he was an “attention magnet”. Everywhere we
went someone wanted to pet him, or say “OHHHH HOW
BEAUTIFUL”. I loved going on walks with him. He was my
walking partner and made sure I walked my 10,000 steps daily
every day....rather, I ran the first 1/2 mile, then settled
into a walk. We were inseparable.
For over 6 years, we were blessed with this wonderful
companion, my best friend, my protector...my “I WANT A COOKIE”
Then suddenly, something was wrong.
He got sick so suddenly, there wasn’t time to
say..”wait..can’t we do this?” I saw my best friend go from my
chasing cats, playing with his buddy Harshini.... to laying
there, with no energy....blood in his urine. We found out he
had a bleeding tumor on his kidney and it spread to his
lungs. So fast. We didn’t know! He was fine, then.....he
Kodiak died November 22, 2013.
My grief has been so intense. Nothing has eased the pain of
loosing Kodiak so young. I miss him daily, cry myself to sleep
and wake up in the middle of the night remembering, he’s not
there, then once again, crying as the realization hits once
They say, “Time heals” But I don’t think time will ever
heal this loss.
I loved you Kodiak....always will.
