Goodbye Sweet Kuma

 Updated for those confused... Kuma passed away Monday night. Her family is still in Germany and though they are very sad they are happy she enjoyed life at Hidden Haven.

For the past few years we have been blessed to be foster parents to Kuma while her human family are in  Germany. Kuma wrapped herself around my heart. Always had a smile (except bathtime) and kisses for me. She wasn't a inside dog but whenever she wanted to come inside she knew I never said no.

 She liked snuggling on the sofa with me watching TV or just napping.

 She actually seemed to really enjoy TV. Kuma was nuts over rawhide pigs ear and she loved sharing with Tramp and Lady.

Kuma also loved to party, especially if it was her birthday!

The absolutely favorite thing she enjoyed was riding in the truck. It was next to impossible to get her out after the ride was over. We finally just left the doors open and when she got tired of sitting in the truck would come to the back door wanting in.

Kuma had a heart of gold. Was the most sensitive,caring,patient,sometimes stubborn dog I ever knew. She always knew when you were having a bad day, feeling blue, or just needed a little doggy love and kiss. The only time she made me feel bad was bath time. She never resisted the bath but the big sad puppy dog eyes she gave me everytime I bathed her really got to me.

I feel like I have lost a child. Kuma became a part of our family.

 She made us happy. She made us smile. She made us laugh. She made us feel special. And she made us feel very loved.

Kuma you are a permanent part of my heart. I will never forget your sweet smile. Goodbye sweet Kuma.... gone but never ever forgotten.

It is always hard to say goodbye to those beloved animals!

Wait a minute...did Kuma just go home to her family, or did she "go home"?
Either way, I'm sorry you're missing her. It sounds like she had a wonderful home with you, except maybe at bath time. :)

That is really hard. Do they live anywhere near you that you will be able to see her once in awhile?

Sorry for the loss of Kuma. Maybe my Buster will show her around.

It can be really hard, to lose a pet, that has your heart. She will never be forgotten. And will always be a part of you.

I'm so sorry. She is a pretty girl. And those eyes.

Oh, so sorry about your Kuma. I am certain, after visiting your blog several times, that she had the best life with you and your family. What a wonderful, loving person you are.
Love your blog, by the way.
