    Default Keyko - RIP baby girl

    For Keyko, a wonderful girl who sadly crossed the bridge yesterday.

    Keyko was a truley amazing dog & showed love to all she knew, she has helped many an akita settle in foster with her & her mummy Donna, before being sent happy & healthy to their new forever homes and a big reason why i myself became involved in rescue.

    God bless Keyko, you are one special star shining brightly. Donna, thoughts are with you.


    The Spirit of an Akita Dog

    I was standing on a hillside
    In a field of blowing wheat
    And the spirit of my Akita Dog
    Appeared suddenly at my feet.

    She looked at me with kind dark eyes
    An ancient wisdom shining through
    And in the essence of her being
    I saw her love for me, too.

    Her mind did lock upon my heart
    As I stood there on that day
    Then she told me of this story
    About a place so far away.

    I stood upon that hillside
    In a field of blowing wheat
    And in a twinkling of a second
    Her spirit left my feet.

    Her tale put my heart at ease
    My fears did fade away
    She helped me know where she had gone
    When she left me on that day.

    "I live among God's creatures now
    In the heavens of your mind
    So do not grieve for me, my friend
    As I am with my kind.

    My collar is a rainbow's hue
    My leash a shooting star
    My boundaries are the Milky Way
    Where I sparkle from afar.

    There are no pens or kennels here
    For I am not confined
    But free to roam God's heavens
    Among my Akita kind.

    I nap the day on a snowy cloud
    Gentle breezes rocking me
    And dream the dreams of earthlings
    And how it used to be.

    The trees are full of liver treats
    And tennis balls abound
    Chew bones line the walkways
    Just waiting to be found.

    There even is a ring set up
    The grass all lush and green
    And everyone who gaits around
    Becomes the Best of Breed.

    For we're all winners in this place
    We have no faults, you see
    And God passes out those ribbons
    To each everyone, even me.

    I drink from waters laced with gold
    My world a beauty to behold
    And wise old dogs do form my pride
    To amble at my very side.

    At night I sleep in an angel's arms
    Her wings protecting me
    And moonbeams dance about us
    As stardust falls on thee.

    You picture me as I was on earth
    Just before I died
    The pain is gone I am whole again
    Filled with Akita pride.

    So when your life on earth is spent
    And you stand at Heaven's gate
    Have no fear of loneliness
    For here, you know I wait. "

    Keyko"s family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I am so sorry for their loss. Keyko sounds like a real special pup. The poem is so lovely.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance......

    I'm so sorry for her loss. It sure can be one of the harder things about rescue sometimes; you feel for the loss of any dog you have had to touch you in the course of their going to a new life.
