Months ago, Kadie’s peep sent photos for Friday’s Foto Fun. I posted them here happily, but I never knew about Kadie’s recent journey.
You see, a friend I’ve never met sent me a gift. A loving handwritten note, a wonderful card and Kadie’s book.
Why? Because Stuart guided her to.
My friend is a Scottie Chronicles follower and misses Stuart, that little “misfit” Scottie who was actually perfect. And a perfect gentleman. And more. All bundled in a black and white package of love. I miss him so. The Dad Peep misses him. And I know you miss him, too.
Today, we miss Kadie. Kadie won her battle with liver cancer last year, but was called across the bridge last Friday.
Before she left, she and her mom wrote a book about a grand trip they took after she was pronounced cancer free.
I now have a pawtographed copy, thanks to my friend, who is owned by Ozymandias and Calysta.
I keep asking “when will the sadness stop?” and my friend’s generous and thoughtful gift reminds me that I must replace the sadness with the happiness that Stuart and Kadie and so many others brought us.
Portions of the book sales help canine cancer research. To learn more, visit http://www.kadieandkelly.com/ or, if you’re a Facebook member, please search for “remembering kadie”.
Rest easy Miss Kadie. Stuart is ready to show you the ropes. So is Kyla. And Daisy. And Kenzie. And too many others to name.
