Our Best Friend

Many people I know have furry children.  We bring them into our home and make them a part of our family.  Some don't understand it, but they don't have too.  Our furry baby is Kona.  I bought her for Mr. Korpsgryndr in our first year together, for his birthday.  She was 5 weeks old.  She is an American Pit Bull Terrier, and a fine example of what a pit, or a dog, should be.  We are complete pit bull advocates, and have worked hard to try to help break the horrible stereotypes and discrimination these poor dogs endure.  Kona is our first baby, and has raised many children.
This is her and my nephew, Jayden, whom she's known since conception.  As far as she is concerned, Jayden is HER baby.  Kona has brought so much joy and happiness to those around her, and been the best friend and dog ANYONE  could ask for.  She is now 10, and was diagnosed with cancer a few months back.  It ain't really fixable.  There is no time limit, however the vet did explain that this cancer could spread.  It has. She has had bad knees for a few years.  Needless to say, Kona is now heading towards her final days.  We don't know when they will be, but we have noticed that she just isn't herself lately.  I can't put into words how much this dog means to me, or how much I feel I owe her.  She has given me so much, it would take me a lifetime to repay her loyalty and love.  She lives a wonderful, spoiled life, but that wasn't enough for me. 

I got her face, and her beautiful smile, forever on my leg.  Now, no matter what, she will always be with me.

  1. I will go out on a limb and say that is Tim's best work ever! I guess I'm a little biased though. Kona is the prettiest lady and the sweetest Pit Bunny I have ever met. Fabulous tatt. Wonderful dog.
