In Memory of Nakita I

Nakita I: ???? - July 4, 2003.
It has been seven years since you left us. I still miss you very much. You left us so quickly without warning. I guess that was better than making some painful decision at the end.
We don't know your birthday because you were a stray from an animal shelter. Someone took you as a puppy and enjoyed your puppyhood. Then when you became older they tired of you and abandoned you where you could find no food or water. It must have been a terrifying experience for you. You were picked up by the animal shelter and nobady came to claim you.
I remember that day, January 10, 1994, when our family came to the shelter to adopt a dog. You were so excited when the cage door opened. When we put you in the car you curled up in the back seat like you always belonged there. My children were small then and you all grew up together. We shared many camping trips together.
The years went by quickly. I still remember you like it was yesterday.
I hope someday our existance and the universe makes some sense and we will be reunited with all those creatures we loved so much.
