I’ve lost dogs before. And it’s always really hard. But this time it was different. This time it was a friend we nursed back to health for the past 6 years after his first stroke, and he fought so hard every step of the way. After everything he had been through he was diagnosed with diabetes six months ago. The vet knew we didn’t have much time left but we knew he was a fighter. And he fought so hard. And the bond we formed with him through his care was so fierce. He showed us how much he appreciated us every day. He managed to get out a daily howl. He bossed us around.

We are truly sorry for your loss. Koda was very dear to our hearts also. He definitely showed how strong he was in the past six months. Our ABQ PetCare family is fortunate to know we were able to help your family during this difficult time. Your family is in our thoughts. Our sincere condolences ❤️

And the bond we formed with him through his care was so fierce. He showed us how much he appreciated us every day. He managed to get out a daily howl. He bossed us around. And every now and then he would get an extra skip in his limp and run through the front yard the best way he knew how to show us how happy he still was. That was just three weeks ago the last time he did that. He was chasing the smallest dog in the family trying his hardest to play. He made me smile every day. And every time I looked in his eyes I saw beauty and love. He passed just as gracefully as he lived. These last few days have been some of the worst our family has ever experienced. And it brought us closer together somehow. Yes, we know he was a dog, but he was so much more to us than that. I wanted to take a minute to say a special thanks to a few people. First and foremost Dr. Ortiz at ABQ Pet Care we could not have made it through the last six months as happily as we did without your help. You and your staff are stellar at what you do and you will always have a special place in our hearts. I am so happy that you got to help him earn his wings yesterday. Also, Monte Vista Pet Lodge, you always did such a great job caring for him while we were away. Secondly, my special group on Facebook The Husky House and Friends, you guys, although perfect strangers, helped me through the last three days with your hundreds of messages of comfort and support. Nobody knows the love of a husky better than all of you. I consider you all friends and people I will never forget. Third, Ken Bagnull, you’re such a sweet friend bringing over lunch for the kids and I today and sitting with the kids all day as we cried and mourned, and even attempted to nap knowing you wouldn’t judge us for it, you will always be one of my best friends for reasons like these. Susie, my best friend, cousin, sister, thank you for sitting with Brandon yesterday when we had to take Koda in. I will be forever grateful for our relationship. And finally, to my family, my amazing husband Ronald D Wright Jr, you have been a rock and the things you had to go through with me these past few days is nothing short of agonizing, and you have been so loving through all of it. Thank you for making his final arrangements this morning so we could let him go in peace. Brandon Wright, you were so strong buddy and you did such a great job taking care of him and making sure he got his dinner and water every day and always extra cuddles, Marci M Wright you have been my hero these past few months making sure he got his breakfast and his shot every morning, and cleaning up his messes not matter how big they were, and you were such a comfort through it all always giving me a shoulder to cry on. Nichole Amber, I will always remember you laying with him on the floor so he wouldn’t be alone and sitting with him at 5 am when he wanted attention. I will always be grateful for what you did for us this morning making sure Dad wasn’t alone while making his final arrangements and making sure he was taken care of respectfully at the funeral home and on his final car ride over there. I know that wasn’t easy and I am so grateful for that. Spencer Adams you took such great care of Taylah Rose while none of us could even though she was so confused because Mommy and Nanny were crying so much. Thank you for staying up with her countless nights in a row because her schedule was so messed up she had her days and nights confused. All of this is hard for a two year old to understand and you took such great care of her and her mommy through all of this. Darian Chavez, thank you so much for your love and support for Koda throughout the years and your support especially over the last few days. Koda has always loved you. Christopher Wright, you were the best doggie dad that Koda could have ever asked for. He was so lucky to be your boy. The love in his eyes and in his famous“Roo Roo” every time you entered the room showed everyone how much your bug loved you. I know how hard this has been on you and I want you to know he loved you beyond words or howls and you will always be his dad and he will always be your boy. You have been my rock these past few days checking on me every hour and checking on him constantly when you were at work. Your words today were so comforting. I love you all so much. We will get through this. Together. Forever.
