Kip Died 10 Years Ago Today


Yeah… it still hurts. I put off this post all day because… well, I wasn’t sure why, but now I know. My heart still hurts when I think of Kip being gone.

I read in a book once someone said “Death lasts so much longer than life” and I really didn’t understand that until I loved a dog who only lived 14 very short years. Kip was with me when I was young, in my 20s, so time went by slower then. But still, I wish he could have lived much longer. Kip was my best friend in the world through some hard times.

Kip was a Shepherd Mix… and you can read more about him here.  I love Kip with all my heart, I miss him still. He died on his own in the back yard on a Saturday morning. I didn’t know how to handle it… I think I’d be better now. Kip, I hope you are free somewhere experiencing wondering things I cannot even imagine. Thank you for spending 14 years with me.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. It is the one year anniversary of Rocco and Nala’s passing and at the end of May it will be 4 years since I lost my Mana girl. It is so hard to love a pet so much and then lose them. And I agree with you, the pain of loss never really goes away. Kip was lucky to have you and you him 🙂

  2. I’m so sorry Cynthia. There really are no words that comfort, even ten years later. I know I think of little man every day and the hurt is there. But I have to say to me it is beautiful that we have these relationships with our pups, especially one that holds such a place in your heart so many years later. Take comfort in the beauty, even if it is the beauty of what was. Sorry again!

  4. Thanks everyone. It’s hard to lose them… ugh. It’s the worst thing about having dogs. They don’t live long enough.
