Goodbye to another sweet girl

Close on the heels of our loss of Hershey, our matriarch, we lost Kyra, Gene's first agility dog.  Kyra was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma in November of 2012 and surgery was not an option.  We only had one more week with her before we had to once again make the hard decision to deliver her from the pain.

Hemangiosarcoma is a nasty cancer, and called the silent killer because it does so much damage before it rears its ugly head.  Kyra had a few good days and a few bad days, but was vomiting blood as well as bloody diarrhea.  Kyra was such an easy dog to own, as long as she wasn't left unattended.  She was an eager and biddable dog who spent her "off time" as a couch potato.

We will miss you, sweet girl.

Kyra, enjoying a deep nap.  This was one of the last photos we got of her.

One of my favorite photos of Kyra.  She was so photogenic, and there was so much emotion in those eyes!

RIP Kyra 1/14/2001-11/24/2012
