Kona was brought to us as a kennel dog who had been bred quite a bit so we knew that cancer would ravage her we just didn't expect to only have 5 years with her.
As she settled into our home her unique and audacious personality came to life! We'd typically find her sitting on an end table after knocking all of the decor and lighting off. One of her favorite places was on the back of the couch with her head hanging off the end, like a cat! LOL
She was built like a mac truck! She'd barrel around the yard and into the house through the doggy door all the way to the master and barrel up the ramp to jump on .the bed and 'dig her way to China' fiercely on our throws or pillows.
This brick house was the sweetest baby too, she didn't know a stranger and everyone fell under her spell, you were wrapped instantly and permanently.
She didn't understand personal space as we would frequently wake up with her on a hip pawing at us for breakfast. She was a snuggly, floppy bundle of pure joy.
She taught our street rescue pup who was in really bad shape how to be a dog in the York household.
Rather than watch the cruel decline of our sweet Kona's quality of life, we said goodbye humanely to her while in our arms Monday evening.
As she was star stuff, shall she return to star stuff with all of our love and gratitude!
Mama & Daddy
