A Tribute to Katie

I recently finished my tribute to Katie who passed away last October to bone cancer. I am really pleased with how it turned out. I did not want a sad song because it is not a sad story. I think "Beautiful Goodbye" by Jennifer Hanson is perfect for Katie and I.

The tribute video put a huge smile on my face. You two were amazing together. Katie was one in a million. She is probably having a blast at the bridge...

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful! One of the best tributes I've ever seen...great balance between photos and video! I only started reading towards the end of her days, but Katie seemed a fantastic dog up until the end :).

You did an AMAZING job on that tribute. It sounds like Katie was a wonderful dog and you two had a wonderful bond. Another beautiful life lost to that damn disease. I hope I live to see the day that they find a cure.

Amazing tribute, it shows a piece of your love to Katie, but I suspect that this love is much bigger and nothing can show it at all.
I admire that what you do with your dogs.

What a beautiful video. It made me simultaneously cry, smile, and laugh. Don't worry... they were happy tears, not sad tears. What a wonderful tribute to a wonderful dog.

You did an amazing tribute for Katie, and I love how you celebrated the memorable things about her! She was so beautiful, and I love that you can see the mischief in her eyes. That last picture of her in the flowers is just stunning!

Laughed, cried and smiled all the way through. I loved one photo in particular where you are doing a heel inside and Katie is looking up at you and you are looking down at her and the love and pride you have for her was so obvious in your expression. That's what it's all about:)

Kathy said...

I really enjoyed that. The song was just perfect too. Loved all the photos of her holding things, what a great sport she was.

Just found your blog today! (Thank you Bunny!) So I don't know you or Katie, but this tribute still had me crying. Mainly because it was such a beautiful tribute, and the song really was perfect ... but I got to thinking about how so many dogs don't get even a single day of the kind of wonderful life that Katie obviously had with you.

She was something special, and so is her mama for giving her such a good "retired" life. Beautiful tribute.
