A Noble spirit rests


  Kirra has passed on. I had her for 13 years.  She was one of the most beautiful dogs I have owned.
Willful, stubborn, fast as lightening. Strong enough to break your wrist. A fierce looking and excellent watch dog but gentle tempered. She was extremely wary of some men but loved hanging out with the girls.
She would become terribly upset and defensive around screaming children, even if they were just playing. I guess she felt protective. She used to cuddle with her buddy Jinx.
She did not like to be photographed and she hated me for this one. But it still cracks me up.
May you be hunting lots of squirrels somewhere.

I lost my friend almost 2 years ago. I have a new baby but Shadow holds my heart. I feel for you.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how deep the grief for the loss of a companion is and I sympathize with you.
When I first saw the picture I smiled, then I realized what the post was about. She was beautiful and had beautiful eyes.
