Sad news


Our boy Kona passed away this week. We rescued him knowing he had a heart murmur but hoping we could fix it. We did not get a good report from the cardiologist and decided to give him the best life we could.
Kona loved playing with Jade and Harley and was a love bug.
In the last month he wasn't able to play and had to be carried everywhere, he wasn't eating much and it was a real struggle to breath.

John and I were with him, holding him and he went peacefully. Now he can run and play over the rainbow bridge with our other Havanese, Violet, Spencer and Frederick.

We all miss him and love him!

I am so sorry, having lost two furbabies within a year of each other I know how you feel.

He was a beautiful boy and lucky that you rescued him and gave him a good life.

Have fun at the bridge Kona, you were loved.

Oh no... I'm so sad to hear of Kona's passing. Sooo heartbreaking...Kona was blessed to have a family that cared and loved him so very much during his short life. He's now free to play over the rainbow bridge.

I'm crying as I type. I didn't think you'd lose him so soon. The first picture below of your three dogs was my favorite photo in the forum. (I really liked the second photo below too, though. Glad you've got one as your avatar and one in your sig.) I'm sad that you don't have Kona anymore and that I won't get to see any more photos of your three Havs together, but I am trying to console myself by picturing Kona running zoomies around all the other Havs over the Rainbow Bridge. He's loving it!

April - I'm so sorry to hear about Kona's passing. You did such a wonderful thing rescuing him and then providing him an amazing last few months.

Prayers & Hugs,

Thank you so much. It was hard to loose him. Our previous Hav's we had for a long time and lost them close together. I know that Kona is happy and not struggling now. Hopefully Jade and Harley will be with us for a LONG time. Love to you all.

Hugs, Jade, Harley, April and John. In our hearts, Kona

I'm so very sorry ~~ Your heart, of course, is breaking...You were so wonderful to Kona...He was a lucky boy to have you and you were so lucky to have him in your lives, no matter how quick the time went with him.
