…..well actually Yuki Ko was the name given to our rescued Akita by Tomiko. Yuki meaning ‘snow’ and Ko denoting a ‘female’. These past few months Yuki decided she no longer could jump into the car to go to B-Elegant for her grooming and hosing her down on the driveway as I previously showed you wasn’t that much fun. So, I got a doggie ramp and a lifting halter but you can figure out how that worked for us.
Cathy’s Critter Cleaners came to the rescue and Alfredo was WONDERFUL….Yuki had never looked so good. I suspect he used the furminator on her.
Everything seemed to be going along splendidly until Monday morning when Yuki decided she was done. Time to say goodbye. She was 13 1/2 which for a doggie her size is pretty awesome.
I thought it appropriate to remember Yuki by what she said for Christmas 2000.
“Dreams do come true…as I lay on the cold concrete at the Animal Shelter, I would dream of a warm bed and food beyond imagining. Somewhere there had to be love and play and happy doggie times. I found it with my new family and asked them to send you this message.
May you always have lots of frisbee time and squirrels to chase. Long romps to lighten the heart and bring joy to all.
May your kibble bowl runneth over and may there be extra treats and surprises.
May you always have adventures and friends to share them with and when you sleep at night may you be blessed with a soft pillow and lovely, sweet dreams.”
Goodnight dear Yuki……………
