It’s been nearly four weeks now since I had to let my sweet Koda girl go, and I’m just now able to write about it. When I first started this blog, Dakota was already sick but I had no idea she’d have to go so quickly. For a Labrador, she’s always been a bit slim, but I noticed she was losing weight pretty drastically even though her interest in my cooking experiments hadn’t waned in the slightest.
It’s been so quiet around the house and the bed feels a whole lot bigger without her in it. My one consolation has been cooking – it’s actually been quite a refuge this past month.
They’ll never be another taste-tester like her and I’ll miss sharing my fork with her. Sleep tight pretty girl!
