Chimo and KC were two of the strongest dogs I have ever owned, always there for me when I needed them. Keyzah has taken on their nurturing spirit as she tries to make me laugh each day and she is there to dry my tears. Jethro is taking it hard and has been doing a LOT of leaning and just wanting to be next to me.

Lakota and Rayne seem to have known it was coming- they are both being much stronger than I would have expected as they were very close with Chimo. Lakota is now having to tolerate Keyzah kisses which before I had to remind her that they were kisses from KC (who always ALWAYS had to greet Lakota with a thorough face wash every time she entered Lakota's room - any room where Lakota was at). Keyzah was doing this with Chimo but now she takes a quick glance and Chimo isn't there so she musters her resolve and gives Kota her Chimo kisses. Kota prepares to grump a bit at the baby and Keyzah steps back, lowers her head and slow wags her tail as if she is saying, "these are for Chimo" and Lakota stops her grumping and accepts all the kisses from Keyzah. She is such a wise and compassionate soul- Chimo influenced her a great deal in their short time together.

Tika is almost torn between the added burden she seems to have taken upon herself, her own grief and her wanting to try to comfort me and make me smile. I am trying to let her know in any way that I can I do not expect her to carry on in Chimo's role as Paq leader.

Whoever says dogs do not understand and grieve is nuts. They too feel sorrow and loss and I am thinking of all of you.

In addition, Ruq's Paq is so compassionate. I guess hard times bring out the best in some creatures.

Crying again here! Started with the KC/Chimo pic, then the Valentine's Day tribute, then Ruq, your tales of how the Paq is coping. They do grieve, deeply. And the pack dynamic has to change and settle. All the while Ruq, you have to get up, face your loss and be there for your pups, your job.....in some ways it's good, they make us get up and function.

Chimo has given me a gift I'd like to share with you. Your life has some parallels to mine...I lost my souldog, Lucy, you lost KC. Chimo was your gentle patriarch, I have my dear sweet old Aik. Keyzah and Zuzu??? Peas in a pod.

Aik is so undemanding that I sometimes give Zuzu more attention, and he got short shrift when Lucy was sick too. Chimo has reminded me how precious and dear Aik is, how much quiet strength he brings, how I rely on him to help raise Zuzu, to be my rock of calm and nurturing. He has been smothered with love and kisses in the last few days, and my appreciation of him has been renewed.

Thank you Chimo, for reinforcing how very special, important and dear you senior gentlemen can be. You HAVE touched those who didn't meet you, through the shining light of love in your eyes in the photos that Ruq has shared.

Bless you sweet Chimo for all you have done and please watch over your mommy and family always.

There really are no words, there are some lovely tributes to Chimo here - as well as the rest of the Paq.
Just know I'm thinking of you hugging
