Yesterday was a very bad day. We had to have our dog of 12 years put to sleep. As all of you dog lovers out there, you know they are more than just dogs… they are family. Kita was such a good dog, right from the start. She was a rescue dog we got as a puppy and was never anything but a loyal, well behaved dog that loved everyone she met. It didn’t matter who showed up at our house, in Kita’s mind, they were there to visit her!
It is going to be very difficult not having her in our lives everyday but as Kim told me last night… Kita had a very good life, especially considering her beginnings, and we have a lot of memories of her to comfort us once the initial grief starts to subside. Hopefully Kita is now somewhere with no pain and she can go to the L-A-K-E every single day and play with the ducks!!!

I could write a huge post singing her virtues, although not without a lot of Kleenex, but I still wanted to share this soup recipe I made last night in my INSTAPOT. None of us felt like eating, but knew we should. Potato soup is my go to comfort food and that is exactly what we needed last night. It is the favourite thing my grandmother makes for me when we visit and whenever I make it I can feel her right alongside of me cooking!
