Mom Pup, as she was known to all the adopted and fostered animals in our home, went to the land of meadows on April 22, 2011. She was adopted from NCBR on Dec. 14, 2002 and has been my best friend since. She was a very active girl until recently. She loved going to the mountains and swimming in the lake, hiking and riding in the boat. She graciously accepted fosters last summer and shared her space with them without really caring at all. With myself and her human grandma by her side, Kira was relieved from all pain and suffering she had been feeling within the last few months of her life. Her human boy and baby will miss her terribly and her four legged companion, Mater, will be lost without her. Run free my sweet girl until I cross that bridge to hold your wiggly little butt and never let you go again.
