    DefaultTwo years ago today I said goodbye to my soul mate.

    Kassa Bella (Once Upon A Dream). 26/01/02 – 9/2/05( Osteosarcoma of the Jaw)

    I didn't really like dogs. My family wanted a dog. O.k. I will just look at one. By the time I got home with a black bundle of fur I was in love. My family and friends are still astounded I became attached to a dog.

    Something about Kassa made everyone fall in love with her.

    At the age of 2 Kassa was diagnosed with Oesteosarcoma of the jaw. I was devestated.

    She was so brave in our fight to beat the cancer, and never once complained.
    Letting her go was the hardest decision I have ever had to make.
    I didn’t want to, but I knew I must let her go to a place where there is no pain.

    The pain of letting her go was unbearable and I miss her more than words can say.
    The pain is less, but never go. l can remember without tears the special times we shared, and the things we did each day.
    We taught each other news ways of enjoying the precious life we shared. I taught her new tricks, sit, down, stay, come.
    She taught me so much more.
    She taught me that with love and mutual respect a human and an animal can share a bond so strong they become one.

    She enriched so many lives and touched so many hearts with the joy and love she gave.
    There will always be a special place in many hearts for my beautiful black Lab who fought so hard for the life she loved, gave so much, and asked nothing back.

    For 10 months I hoped and prayed for her to live. I wanted a miracle. What I didn't know was.
    I did get a miracle. Kassa Bella. My beautiful black Lab my companion, and soul mate who gave everyone she met unconditional love.


    Run free without pain my angel in fur. Run free precious baby until we meet again.

    Text from 1st Timothy 4:4: “Bless you, my faithful friend, God’s gift; your beautiful eyes can close knowing I love you and your beloved Ernie and I will see you soon.
    This pic was taken several days before she crossed the bridge.


    This pic was my signature pic.


    Kassa 25/11/01 - 09/02/05 O.S Jaw cancer forever in my heart.

    Chris, you and Kassa created quite a bond with each other. What a beautiful girl - inside and out.

    Thinking of you and Kassa and Ernie today.

    I remember Kassa and your pic of her chewing the gate slats. She was a beautiful girl. I'm sorry for your loss.

    What a beautiful memorial for your friend. She was a gorgeous lady, and so infinitely lucky to have you in her short albeit meaningful and important life.

    We share in your sorrow. Today is the 1 month anniversary of losing our Winston to Degenerative Myelopathy. Although we were blessed with nearly 9 years with our precious boy, it's not the amount of time that we have together that matters, but the unbreakable bond that you speak of in your post that death can never erase.

    Our babies are always watching out for us from heaven.

    Run free sweet Kassa and Winston :'(

    Run free Kassa. If you get a chance, spend sometime playing with Simon.
