A Tribute to Meddlin’ Kate

“Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.” – Jon Katz

Animals have a way of knowing when things aren’t right in our world and they will do their best to bring a little sunshine into the moment. They love us faithfully and ask for nothing in return. The above picture is my Kate. I was a farrier and she was my ride dog. She took her job of riding shotgun very seriously. She was always there to brighten up my day when I needed. When I needed to vent she was always there to listen. I was devastated when I lost her to cancer. We were together 24/7 and when she crossed the bridge I lost a huge part of my life. Now I hold on to the memories we made together. RIP my Meddlin’ Kate.

  1. Aww Sweetie, I feel your lingering pain. Having lost my Doogie 2 years ago, still feels, sometimes, too new… with as many memories you and Kate created and shared, that feeling will undoubtedly be with you for ever, too. It’s ok. It means we loved. 🥰

    The best news: the love and bond you had, was shared; it was Kate receiving your love, and giving you hers in return. Dogs, in particular, truly are God’s gift of unconditional love for us. How wonderful to know you’ve had That in your life too. I’m sure Kate’s presence will still be felt and shared in future writings about peace, love, contentment, a simpler life, honesty, and so much more. “Family” will always include our fur babies. That depression on the bed or seat, next to you, I’m sure, is Kate, coming by, saying “ok, Dad, where to next? I got you 🐾❤”. Hugs. And prayers for Kate inspired writings 🥰❤🐾
