Remembering Keiki

Keiki left this world early in the morning on March 30th, it was around the same time she came into it. She just celebrated her 14th birthday on the 25th of February. She left us far too early, but we know she is in a better place.

That was one of the hardest days I’ve ever had, and there were a few bad ones in 2019. Keiki was my fur-baby, and was she ever furry.

February 25, 2006 – March 30, 2020

I have tried to write the perfect caption for this sweet baby girl.

The truth is there are few words to describe the impact this ray of sunshine had on the world. ⭐️

There was not a person Keiki met she did not love & most loved her back.

She had ridiculous habits; like going up the stairs backwards & squeaking uncontrollably when she was excited.

She never learned to swim nor did she fight back when other dogs picked on her. 😦

She usually just sank when left unattended in a body of water & rolled over in excitement when chased.

She was without a doubt a sweet & special soul.

I often joked I would never love her as much as I love Anela; but, by the void in my life right now I could not have been more wrong.

I can only hope she felt as loved as she was. That she is forever stealing blankets, begging for fries, & sneaking wine when no one is looking.

She will be missed, more than simple words can express.💔😭

I struggled to get the words out of my head, but what kept repeating was the void, the void, the void. Everything I do throughout the house reminds me of her. It doesn’t help that we’re on this COVID-19 lockdown.

For those Instagram lovers, we (Jeana, myself, and our chihuahua‘s account) have used the hashtag #keiki_chihuahua if you want to browse those photos.

When I feel I can deal, I will continue to add more. I know I’ve got a lot of stories to tell and share with the world.

For now, I love you Keiki, and I miss you.
