An ode to Katie: the best dog I ever knew
By Kurt Krueger

WHEN IT comes to losing one of man’s best friends, even old age and knowing what’s inevitable doesn’t ease the pain. Katie, the best dog our family has ever known, is gone. She left us last week at the age of 14.

I keep telling myself that these should be happy times, the celebration of a long and great life, yet saying goodbye to this little black Lab was one of the most difficult things I’ve faced.
It may take me a few tissues to tell the story of this special companion, but she’s worth every tear. Dogs, you know, like most pets, give far more than they ever take. There is nowhere else in the world that you can find such unconditional loyalty.
