Happy 9th Birthday Kita girl

I can't believe 9 years have passed for my super star of a girl Kita.
Of all the dogs I have had and do have Kita has always been the superstar out of them. The one dog I could throw anything at and she would take it in stride, the one dog who could be among any amount of distractions and still always have her eye on me. The one dog with the rock solid temperament who can be in a group of children and adults alike and show each and every one of them same respect.

The best dog in a million years in my eyes.

She truely is that once in a lifetime dog for us here, and has paved the way for many others who have come to live her by sharing her wisdom and confidence with them in "difficult" times for the new pups/dogs who may have found themselves unsure of a situation, Kita has always been there by their side with her easy going and confident attitude.

Kita is the warden around here, when the others get a little carried away she is quick to set the rules for them with a low grumble or just a look. She keeps the peace in this house thats for sure.

In less than an hour it is Kita's 9th birthday While it is sad to see age take its toll on her coloring, I assure you all that is the only thing age has affected for Miss Kita (thankfully)

Kita had her "ol lady" check up late this spring, her blood work came back in normal range, her hips and elbows are still strong and although she has a very slight favoritism to her one front leg the vets were not ready to consider medicating her just yet. It was just recommended that some of her suppliments be increased and to keep an eye on it.

With out further adieu, here are some pictures of the rockstar herself. She did have a little battle with weight earlier this year but rest assured that we have that under control now and she is back to her lean mean muscle machiene self and running like the wind blows once again.

"Stop telling people how old I really am... I am gonna be 5 forever"


"Look I'm not technically 9 for another hour, can I go back to bed?"


"Ok, Ok... here's the grey, show the world why don't ya"


"Can I have my birthday treat now"

Playing with the group of dogs at the house at that particular time


this picture makes me laugh, Bailey had the worst gas ever and frequently Kita would use him as a pillow...


"HEY EVERYONE"


" I fell"


Kita and her sister a few years back ( RIP Kilo girl)




WHEEEEEEE
