A Tearful Tribute

Eleven years ago we brought home the most adorable puppy with a yellow ribbon around his neck. We had picked a lab because we wanted "a real dog", a dog that would fetch. Well Kona never quite got the hang of fetching but he taught us all about unconditional love every single day.

I'm terribly saddened to inform that his kidneys appear to have given up on him. I'm not one to believe in an afterlife, but I like to think that he is now forever young, rolling in the grass after getting the newspaper and knocking wine glasses off the table with his tree trunk of a tail. Good boy, Kona.
