To Keiko, The love of my life.
Keiko's last pic
I lost my baby girl, Keiko, 4 days ago suddenly and my heart is broken in a million pieces.
Keiko came into my life 9 years ago at 5 weeks of age. On the way home, she started whining to get out of her crate. I took her out and she sat on my lap and fell asleep, she has not left my side until Wednesday.
Keiko was such a sweet, gentle and loving girl. She loved nothing more than rolling in the grass and chewing on sticks.
She was afraid of thunder and fireworks and she would try to hide under my shirt.
We took Keiko on every vacation, wherever we went, there she was. We even bought our house because she had plenty of room to run around and she seemed so happy here.
Keiko was about 20 lbs overweight and her Vet advised that we work on getting her weight down. We started taking short walks every other day and she was doing great.
On Wednesday we went to the lake for a walk and she collapsed, I had to pick her up and put her in the van. I sat in the back with her while my wife tried to get to the nearest vet.
5 minutes later Keiko passed away in my lap. I feel so horrible, I can't eat or sleep. I spent the last 9 years taking care of her and now I feel like I contributed to her death.
Did I push her too hard? Did I miss something? Did she have enough water? Was it too hot? or too dry? Was she in pain? Did she know that I was there? God, please forgive me. Keiko my baby girl, I am so sorry.
The vet thinks that her heart just gave out, but I don't know. I miss you baby girl and I hope you know how much I love you.
