In memoriam to our beloved pet

Kato 1996-2009

This month has not been so great for our family...while dealing with two sick kiddos, we had to make one of the most difficult decisions of putting our oldest dog to sleep. On March 16, our beloved friend, Kato, passed away from old age. We originally adopted him from a no-kill shelter 8 yrs ago and he was only 5 yrs old at the time. For me, he was my very first house pet. I've had pets before while growing up in the Philippines but merely used for protection and kept outside on a leash. I am glad that he was my first pet. Because of Kato, I was able to experience a feeling like no other. He was the sweetest dog you could ever meet and was always had a calming effect. He taught our other dog, Kody, well. We had adopted Kody from a breeder when he was still a wee pup so you can just imagine his distraught when he finally figured out that Kato wasn't coming back. They were best pals.

Kato will always be our guardian and now in doggy heaven. We love you ver will be sorely missed. Till we meet again my friend!
