Today is a hard day for those who loved a wonderful dog named Kimber. At some point during the night, the senior dog, beleaguered with age-related health issues, drew her last breath and peacefully slipped away.

Remembering Kimber is a joyful endeavor because hers was not a life of sadness or hardship. She was a dog who was loved deeply from the moment that she joined her human mom’s life – and  though her mom knew that Kimber’s time was limited, there was no need for the creation of a bucket list.

You see…every day of Kimber’s life was an adventure. Kimber was the center of her mom’s world – on sunny days, and even not so sunny days, Kimber and the other members of her “pack” would be off on an “out and about” adventure with their adoring mom. Some days it was a trek to a stream or river…other days it was a visit to a lake or the shores of the Puget Sound.

When Kimber’s body became tired – the fun didn’t stop. Instead, her mom bought her a cart and they continued finding people to see, and places to go. Kimber had a loving demeanor, and her manners were impeccable (thanks to her dog-trainer mom). Because she was a joy to be around – everyone loved her, and of no surprise, those who loved her are grieving today.

Every dog should be as fortunate as Kimber was to be loved so perfectly. Kimber lived an exceptional life and she passed away in a manner that most people dream of…peacefully in her sleep, after a full and long life.

Rest easy beautiful Kimber.

    All dogs should have a full life like Kimber had. Doesn’t matter what age you get them at, from puppy to adult, to senior. Giving a dog a home at any age is rewarding to you and especially your dog.We adopted our 6th dog (in 49 years, always vowing we wouldn’t get another when the last one died). Well, this little girl was 6 when we got her from the Manhattan ACC and she is the most different dog we’ve ever had. The previous 5 were all medium sized dogs, but as we’ve aged we thought a smaller one would be easier to handle (sometimes as she has a mind of her own). She is so loving,devoted to both my husband and me and welcomes all to her home. Giving a dog at any age a home is the best thing you can do in your life until the day you have to say goodbye. You cry,vow not to do it again, but after a while you look around and see one that wins you over and the cycle starts again. Wonderful story.
