Katie, “Katiebug” as I fondly called her rescued me in 2007. She was found tied to a pole in the heat of the summer and taken to a high kill shelter where an amazing rescue organization found her. They said she was three and not much else was known about her. I fell in love with her at first sight. Her eyes told a story of neglect and abuse but also a longing for a safe home. Don’t ever touch my tail she told me and I listened whole heartedly. We were inseparable and became the best of friends. She was an escape artist at first and I nick named her “Bolt”. She was a magnet to cactus and liked her adventures over the hill. She soon realized she was in her forever home and decided she didn’t need to explore any longer. Katie loved the water and never found an ocean, lake, pond or puddle she didn’t like. I can’t count the times I had to swim out to get her. Never mad, always just so happy to see her having such a great time. She was the most incredible girl…she possessed a wide smile, a happy tail and a sweet spirit. When I decided to move here to Oklahoma from San Diego she was the best co-pilot a girl could ask for. She didn’t like the elevator so much and was too old for the stairs, but she loved having her own bed and room service was her favorite. She loved living here in Oklahoma and gave me 10 amazing years. I miss her each and every day. I couldn’t think of anyone or anything to name this incredible business after, she is the namesake and will be with me every day.
A very wise man once told me that dogs find owners, not the other way around. They pick you and they choose to stay with you. In that way, they are also giving you the end of their life. The deeper the bond, the harder it is to say good-bye. I know I’d rather have any amount of time with a dog I love and suffer the mourning than not have the time at all.
I wish you could know –- really know -– how grateful I was for you, how much you changed me, how I’m a better person because of you. Thank you for all of the laughter. Because of you, there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t laugh. Even in the darkest times, the bleakest moments, you managed to put a smile on my face. You found the fun in every little thing and encouraged me to do the same.
Thank you for perspective. It’s true that sometimes I took myself too seriously. I thought too much about things and spent too much time glued to the computer and my phone. But you were a constant reminder about what’s truly important. With a gentle, well…not so gentle paw on my leg, you convinced me to walk outside, feel the sun, and maybe stretch out with you on the grass. Enjoy this moment, you seemed to say, because this moment is all we have and the only one that ever really matters.
Thank you for being there. In the last few years, I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs. Hellos and goodbyes. Life and death. Triumphs, failures, and uncertainties. But what never wavered was you, dear Katie. Regardless of what was happening around me, there you were in the center, my furry, shedding girl keeping me grounded, whole and balanced.
Thank you for just being you. It seems impossible that by not doing anything, you still managed to do so much. Your happy attitude in the morning –- this is the best day of my life! –– set the tone for the rest of my day. Sitting near you in the same room while drinking my coffee while you were snoring quietly (or not so quietly) on the couch filled me with peace and made me calmer. Just the fact that you existed somehow made life better.
I have always thought you would live forever. That I would never have to make the decision we had to make, but we both knew that wasn’t true. No matter how much I wished it or willed it, that day did come, and a piece of my heart left with you. But….my heart is bigger because you were a part of it.
My dear, dear Katiebug.
