It has been over a month since I had to say good bye to Korkie. About a week after we moved we noticed her breathing was shallow and rapid. We took her into the vet and xrays confirmed the cancer had spread to her lungs. It was fast moving and aggressive. A few days after that – she was gone.

There is no way I could ever explain to someone who doesn’t understand that special bond you have with an animal and for those that do understand I don’t need to say anything.

She will forever be part of my life and I will miss her until my last breath.


Lehnanne has shared with the internet her love of research, animals, and writing since 1996. She created and ran several independent online directories and communities. The desire to travel nurtured by every new duty station of her military family moves has stuck with her. When she is not busy being a cat servant and dog-mom, she enjoys exploring new places and dark chocolate.
