Saturday it will be one year since we lost our precious Katie, but she sends us signs all the time to let us know she is still with us in spirit. We think about her and talk about her all the time, but mostly, we miss her big white fluffy self.
Mom and I miss her the most as we were the closest to Katie. Katie was there for me my whole life, and we were as close as sisters can ever be. I really miss her, and now prefer to hang out on my own or with Mom most of the time. I’m not close to my other sisters at all.
There are things only Katie, Mom, and I shared like living in Germany, moving to the US, stuff like that. My sisters will never know how that all was for us. We did do some traveling in the US, taking road trips to Florida a few times. The first couple times it was just me and Katie, then Bailie came along after she joined our family. No doubt, Katie was well traveled.
Despite being a guard dog breed, Katie was the sweetest pup on the planet. She welcomed Bailie with open paws from day one. I was never too happy about that because Katie was my sister and no one else should try to steal her away.
Nevertheless, we three did so much together. This photo was our last walk all together in the spring of 2015. Katie was having a lot of difficulty walking and it got to be just too much for Mom to try to take us all out together.
When Katie passed away last June 17, Mom told us she would probably get a new puppy in a year and she would email Bailie’s breeder about that wish. A few weeks later, Mom learned that the breeder was having a litter in August. She only has a litter every two years or so. Mom emailed her all the criteria she wanted in a puppy, but she also had reservations about getting a puppy so soon.
Everything Mom wanted was available, and Madison came home to live with us in October. We know Katie was behind Madison moving in with us. In all the years Katie was alive, we never saw another Kuvasz. A few days after Madison arrived, they went to puppy school and there was a Kuvasz. This Kuvasz was fixated on Madison – Mom says it was almost eerie! Now when Mom and Madison go to various classes and tests, they run into a Kuvasz almost every time, and not always the same one. We believe Katie is sending us signs to let us know she accepts what we are doing and little Madison.
The time we had with you was precious to each of us, and we are so thankful for those years and the signs you send to us now. Love you forever!
