Mya, We will never forget you

It is with heart wrenching regret to say that Mya { Mrs. Kisses } passed away peacefully in her home today, April 21, 2017 at 5:45 pm.

She will be deeply missed by all who had the joy of meeting her. With her bubbly loving disposition and fearless will to move forward, I’m sure she will give our loved ones a run for their money on the other side of the bridge. She spent the day sunning in one of her favourite spots in the front yard and we had pizza and ice cream for lunch, two of her favourites. Macleod stayed near her all day and only left her alone when our vet came in the house, like he was handing off watch detail to the Doctor, now she was in good hands.

We want to sincerely thank Dr. Judith Seigert, Port Moody Animal Hospital, who has been amazing with all of our pets for over a decade. As well as all the Doctors and staff at Canada West Veterinary Services that treated Mya with her surgery and oncology over the passed several months. And to all the people here that lent an ear or a link to some info. Being able to come here and speak openly with people that are right here, in it with us, has been unforgettable.

Mya put up a tremendous fight since July 2016, When she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right front leg. In late March she lost mobility in her rear left leg { opposite to the front amputation } and by the beginning of April she could no longer carry her weight. We would carry her out on a blanket and set her up in one of her favourite spots, usually the one under the tent { non stop rain lately }. She did a lot of crying lately { as did we } sadly we just got it all down to a science, her talking / crying that is. A few weeks ago we thought that was it, she cried seemingly all the time, we noticed she would quiet down when we had to move her in or out but shortly after would get restless and chatty. I would stare at her sleeping sometimes for hours and started to notice some patterns. She would squawk at dinner time sometimes loudly but a different tone. Every few hours she would get restless and cry but we weren’t sure why. The week before the Easter long weekend we saw her struggling to roll over, her bad rear leg was getting stiff and it stopped her from switching sides. ” We got this big girl” we scooted her on to the blanket {magic carpet} picked her up off the ground and rolled her over in the air by rolling the blanket. She even added a visual to our little list of signs, looking; at the water dish, the kitchen at dinner time, the drop spot in the yard for toiletries, and now she would roll on her back, as much as she could,  and turn her head to look at me upside down. Every time we did ” the roll over” she would go to sleep again for a good few hours. lost a lot of sleep last two weeks and we started to miss some pain med dosing but it seemed to be the bed soreness thing that was giving her the most grief, after we stabilised the constipation that is.

Macleod is looking pretty sad right now. Don’t think he cares to be the Alpha dog any more. We will keep the appointment with Healthy Paws on Saturday to see if the ES-4 we heard about last week can give us a little more time with Big guy. We are still in this fight.

Its already a little lonelier here and its only been two hours.

Allison wrote a poem for our dear Mya:

Close your eyes sweet angel

As we lay you down to rest

The place that you are going

Is of course the very best


High above the fluffy clouds

Where the grass is long and green

The meadows go forever

And the water is serene


Your free of pain so run girl run

Don’t ever turn around

You can’t believe how good this feels

As your paws don’t touch the ground


Your eyes as big as saucers

That smiles back on your face

The only thing that’s missing

Is for ‘here’ to be that place


Yet we know your always with us

And that we are there with you

Our love for you is endless

As our hearts have gone with you


Our love, best friend our baby girl

Thank you for all your love

We called you our “Earth Angel”

As you were sent from up above


To shower us in kisses

On each and everyday

The joy you gave to Dad and I

Was just your own sweet way


So thank you dearest Mya

For the hard battle that you fought

You lost your leg to cancer

But gave it everything you got


Our beautiful little Tripawd

Who hopped around the yard

She’d look at Macleod our other dog

And say “Hey this ain’t so hard”


But eventually that damn cancer

Just has to have it’s way

You did everything you could

To make it to today


Sweet dreams our precious “Mya”

Dad and I will see you soon

Meet us at the Rainbow Bridge

Under the brightness moon


Love you forever xxxooo

Mya blowing you all a kiss…

  3. A truly touching poem, I have tears in my eyes reading it. Thankfully Mya is peaceful and pain free, but the pain in your hearts will take a while to go. We are just starting on this journey with our Freddie, he had his amputation 4 days ago, so it is early days for us. Love and hugs xx

  9. The poem is one of the most heartfelt and beautiful tribute I think I’ve ever seen.

    And these pictures of your beautiful girl are such a sacred treasure. Blowing kisses…….perfect!

    I cann tell you how touched we all are by the incredible care and devotion you have given to Mya, and Macleod too.

    Your bond is so deep with Mya thst yiu were able to interpret her every sound, her every motion. She KNEW she could count on you for everything! And she KNEW you loved her so much she could count on you for the gift of release when she needed it most.

    My Happy Hannah is an April’s Angels and now your lovely Mya has joined her at the Bridge, along with all the other Angels. And let me tell you, the greeting pawty is quite wild!!! Mya is now healthy and running free as she heads to the weloming committe! They have buckets full of ice cream and steak and bacon and more ice cream!!

    She is bragging about what a great life in her earth ckothes she had with you! She tells them she got to know what love and happiness felt like and she could not have been more loved!!

    Mya will send you a sign, and to Macleod too, that she is okay and watching over you.

    I know your grief is suffocating right now. I know the void, the break in routine hurts sooo badly. It will take a while, but the happy times will start ronpush the sadness further in the background. It will take awhike, but it will happen.

    Just k ow that the bond you and Mya have can never be broken! Ever! So when you see the full moon shining brightly, know that is Mya shining her light of eternal love on you.

    Beautiful Mya will never be forgotten here. We would love to here more about her and see more lovely picfures when you can.

    And give Macleod some extra treats for us today.

    Seending love and hugs and surrounding you with kisses from Mya!

  10. Ohhhhh Mya. My heart broke when I read this news. I’m so sorry, you really fought so hard.

    It’s not easy to say goodbye and part ways on this earth. I know you will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. The beautiful poem your humans wrote shows that you had an unbreakable bond which can never be broken. That bond will tie you together for all time, until you meet again.

    With many hugs & condolences,
    Rene, Jim, Wyatt Ray, Spirit Jerry and the Tripawds Nation
