Good-Bye my Friend, the love of any animal is so pure, without judgement and complete.
I am guessing in my heart I new I would not see Mana again, when I left for our trip back home to Kauai. But when Deb (our angel doggie sitter) called to let us know he had deteriorated very fast, and the time had come for an act of kindness (that we readily offer our animal friends and withhold from our human friends and family) my heart broke into 1000 pieces.
Being someone who is always ready to take responsibility for my actions, the thought of not being able to full fill the care of our beautiful puppy was heart breaking. Then the true meaning of friendship stepped up, I contacted my closest friends, and they were there without question.
Together with Deb, Maria, Gaby and Douglas did something above and beyond, they were with Mana for his final journey. What you have done for Jim & I and more importantly Mana is in our hearts forever.
Here is our tribute to the most loving, gentle, kind, quirky puppy ever. Always in our hearts.
Love you Mana Roslyn & Jim
