Kambei. The K-man. The leaper. The explorer. The go-getter. The swimmer. The Tri-athlete. You’ve left a hole in all of our hearts. A hole that won’t be filled. But there is a reason for that. It’s because you were loved, a lot, especially by your human and doggeh mamas. As the U2 song goes, “only love can leave such a mark, only love can leave such a scar.” We watched you grow up from the day you were born. Oh how we all worried about you because of your heart condition. We didn’t need to. You gave that heart condition the finger from the day you were born. Your energy knew no bounds. I called you the K-man, because you were indeed the man of the house. You made sure to show your brother and sisters how everything was done. You made us smile, laugh and at the end, cry. M and VG were very lucky to have got to meet you in person. The rest of us didn’t have that chance. Not here anyway. Any reunions we have on earth will be missing something. A very important something. You. But I am confident we will have a reunion with you across the Rainbow Bridge, and that you will be the first one there to meet us and show us all the new tricks you’ve learned. So with a few more words from Bono I will leave you buddy, confident that “I will see you again when the stars fall from the sky”…because “I know that this is not good-bye”.
