Goodbye, Dear Skyla

If love alone could have kept you here, you would have lived forever.

Dear Skyla,

My heart will never be whole again. You took a piece of it with you, and I think you left a piece of yours too. You taught me so much about life and love. There will never be a soul more loyal than yours. The memories we shared are too many to count, but I’ll always, ALWAYS remember the feeling when I would tell you I loved you, and ask if you loved me, and you’d look into my soul and kiss me back.

Thank you, my beloved girl.

You may not be here, but you’ll never be forgotten.

    Tears are flowing as I read this beautifulheartfelt tribute to our precious Sklya. That picture really says so much about being one and being connected forever. It’s just stunning in so many levels.

    To be able to love Skyla enough to give her the gift of relief when she told you she was ready to run free is the ultimate act of love. While we give a gift that is soooo kind for them takes us humans to the depths of despair that crushes us.

    Skyla took this journey AND handled it like a Champ! She taught us all so much about grace and about how to live every moment to the fullest! She embraced everyday with you with so much joy. It wasn’t about how long she woukd be here on earth, it was about bulding happy loving memories and install them in yiur heart eternally. Yes, sje took a piece of your heart filled with those memories with her….And she left a piece of her heart with you filled with the same loving memories. Such a smart girl!!

    No dog could jave been more loved. And she knew it!!! She’s bragging about it at the Bridge too!!!

    She’ll make her e ergy presence known to you, but you knkw that. When you jave that ki d of Soul connection, the connections continue, just in a different way.

    We have all been touched by our sweet Skyla and the @ove you two share. We thank you so much for the honor of traveling this jour ey with you.
    As yiu can, plesse share more stories about you sweet gal, znd with pictures of course! Her avatar picture is one of my all time favorites!

    Surrounding you with Skyla’s and happy smile

    I am so sorry to hear about Skyla crossing the bridge. No one can tell you when the hurt is going to stop. This part of the journey is an individual one. Yes, she did probably take a piece of your heart with her.

    My thoughts are with you in this sad time.

    So sorry for the loss of your beloved Skyla. My heart has also been recently broken with the loss of my Dobe Nitro so I know how you feel. Wishing you peace in the days ahead as you begin to heal.

    Rae, I am so sorry that Skyla had to move on. Your love for her and hers for you shines so bright through all your posts and photos. I hope you can find some solace in knowing that you did everything you could for Skyla to the end. She went surrounded by your love. And she will always be in your heart, now and forever.

    Peace and love to you,

    All our heart and soul goes out to you Rae and Andre, we are so sad she is an angel now. Skyla had the best life EVER on 3 and 4 legs, and that girl really touched all of us.

    Always at home in nature, Skyla’s spirit will be part of the beauty of the trees, the sky, the rivers and the seasons. Her strength, a part of our hearts forever.

    We miss her, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing a tiny slice of her life with us.
