Kane (12/6/2002 - 7/18/2009)

I've been delayed in posting in this forum, partly because it was too painful to do so at the time, and partly because I didn't know how I could possibly come up with words that would do Kane justice. I finally realized that I can't; there's just no way I can convey how special he was and how much he meant to us.


We set Kane free from his pain 1 month after his osteo diagnosis. We could no longer keep him comfortable with pain medications, and we didn't want him to suffer a moment longer than necessary.


Kane was our goofy, loveable, and, at times, grumpy old man (at the ripe 'ole age of 6!). He was a lover of all things edible--we'd always say he'd eat anything and ask questions later--and had a penchant for fuzzy objects, pens and pencils, and bichons (but *not* in an 'I want to eat you' kind of way). He loved to do zoomies in our living room and watch The Cooking Show, as we called it, lying patiently outside our kitchen, desperately hoping for some tastey morsels of whatever we were preparing for dinner that night. Car rides really got him revved up, but it wasn't the destination that was important so much as the actual ride. He was most comfortable at home with us, and he thrived on a predictable routine.


I could go on and on, but instead I hope this video can better display his incredible personality and the love we had and will always have for our boy. Be sure to crank up your sound for the full effect! The video guest-stars several of the fosters Kane helped us break in, plus his cousin Libby the Lab.


Run free, our sweet Kane. We miss you every day.

I am so sorry. I have always had a secret crush on Kane - that beautiful face with the eyes that speak to you. Your tribute was as beautiful as he is.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Take comfort in knowing that your sweet boy is at peace, pain free and running once again with the wind.

I am so sorry for your loss of Kane. I've always thought he was one of the most beautiful hounds on GT.

Although his time on this earth was short, he couldn't have been more loved by you and your husband.

I had to go back and look at those wonderful photos you had done in your recent photoshoot...he was so gorgeous and sweet!

I am keeping Kane and all who loved him in my prayers.

Godspeed, handsome boy.

What a beautiful Video.

Your boy sounds like Laddie is the image of him. We've called him a curmudgeon from the age of 4 or "mature" for his age (he's 5), in addition to all the other details. I am so very sorry for your loss. No more pain, just freedom.

:( Far too young. I'm so sorry. He certainly was beautiful and obviously a great character.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's just not right that Kane should have left you so soon. Your tribute was so full of life & love - a wonderful portrait of a very special boy. Godspeed Kane! f_yellow

I'm so sorry for your loss. Your boy was taken far too young, but you have honored him with a beautiful tribute.

I just noticed-he had the same birthdate as my girl. Godspeed, Kane. Run like the wind.
