Khyra's Mom here today
I missed posting for 7/15 but knew today would be acceptable - or at least I hope so!
Khyra and I will be sad as we look across the street and see the empty space in the backyard - that is where Khyra's Bernese Mountain Dog boyfriend Baloo lived - we don't have many pictures of him as the two of them were always LOTS of motion when we encountered them on our walks - usually every night - as soon as he spied her, his khanine body language went into full swagger and he turned on his charms for her - and she went into full Khoy Khyra Mode for him!
Last week, his mom told us she had an appointment for him - he had just seemed off to her - more so than just being related to the weather - as we went for our Monday night khamp walk, we saw their minivan and were ready to wave at it - Meg had the window down to tell us she had just come from the vet - they suspected he had a mass that might be bleeding and they would be operating on him - of course, the hairs on my arms raised along with THAT feeling in the pit of my stomach - the same activities I just experienced as I pawed this paragraph - I so hoped what I feared wouldn't have to happen, but it did
I've not gotten to talk with her but a neighbour on the other street told us the news Friday night as we took our walk - he asked if we knew the lady that walked Baloo - I said yes - and KNEW what he was going to say - well, she had to let him go
He was only SIX YEARS OLD - just so wrong - I'm going to hold onto the last GReat memories I have as we met up with them last weekend - he SO loved MERDIE! - I mean, he would blow off Khyra to go sniff and greet her!
I recalled I had a video - and a blurry picture - in the Photobucket I had put together for Dodi The Belgian Malinois transport I did - that was a special one since she got to come here and spend the afternoon until her next driver could meet us at one of the Harrisburg exits for The PA Turnpike -
Here is the video of the very handsome Burned Yeast Mountain Dog - and the blog post about the transport - which also features two of those OTHER Belgian types!!!
Run Free Baloo - we'll miss you - it makes me wish I had more pictures of the fun times you and Khyra enjoyed!
I'm sure everyone knows the face - The Look of Lennox - and one of the few times in my life I am truly without words
Throughout the entire saga, I couldn't bring myself to say anything - I couldn't believe it was happening - I couldn't grasp the entire scenario - I couldn't envision the wrongness of it all - yet I kept wanting to believe it wouldn't end as it did - I kept thinking they would have some moment of lucidity - and in the end, release him to someone even if they wouldn't return to his FAMILY - but once again, ignorance won
As I prepared to put this post together, I tried to find a link to include - but decided just to use the Google link for my search -
Unhumans failed you Lennox - but in the end, they will get theirs as Karma doesn't forget
Until then, we'll continue to try and BE AND BLOG THE CHANGE FOR THE ANIMALS
Hugz&Khysses from Khyra's Khorner
P.S. Khyra will return tomorrow - she asked I be sure to tell of you she had a good long walk on Sunday without THOSE Golden Khousins of hers!
