We adopted KD Ann from the Humane Society after seeing her on TV on Pets on Parade. We were looking for a friend for another new dog and kept watching the show saying "let's go get that one" every time we watched the show. A woman I used to work with knew that and one Monday after KD Ann was on the show she said "You have to go get her. This is her last chance since she is 5 years old". After much discussion and believing she wouldn't be there - aren't all those animals adopted that are on TV? - I called to see and she was still there. I called Dean, my late husband, and we knew it was not a question of going down to see her. We knew the minute we decided to go down, we were coming home with her. So down we went. We brought Dellaney, the other dog, down with us and introduced them. All was fine so I took Dellaney home and Dean stayed behind to pay and drove KD home. KD was always Dean's dog - wherever Dean was,so was KD. He said it was because he gave her orange pop on the way home from the Humane Society.|
When we got her home, she was the saddest dog I had ever seen. She walked around the house, wouldn't lift her head or her tail, wouldn't look at us and wouldn't meet us at the door when coming home. That was the first week. The second week she started lifting her head and her tail but still no barking or meeting at the door. The third week she realized this was her new home and met us at the door, smiling, wagging her tail, and at the end of the third week finally barked for the first time - at me walking through the wash behind our house walking the other dog!
I love KD so much and I will miss her forever. I picture her at Rainbow Bridge with Dean and Tatum - who she took care of when she got old and let me know when she was lost under the table or in a corner of the house.
KD - I love you and miss you so much. But I know you are in a better place, happy and at peace. I can't wait to see you again. I have many memories.
KD's best friend, Dellaney, is with her now. Her link is below:
