Kubuna's Dry Run Sitka
April 7th, 2005-November 29th, 2015
If you are reading this obituary I've run across the rainbow bridge into the arms of my Heavenly Father. While I'm sad to leave my humans I'm excited to receive my new body free of pain and worldly concerns. God gave me a wonderful life on earth. I was privileged to have many experiences other animals never get. I traveled as far north as Vermont and as far south as Florida during my 10 1/2 years. I walked the halls of hospitals, nursing homes, and other places encouraging those who were hurting and encouraging them to seek healing emotionally, physically, and spiritually as a therapy dog.
During my time as a therapy dog, I served along side other furry friends as a member of Therapy Dogs and Associates, as well as being the first dog ever certified to go into Central State Psychiatric Hospital, Petersburg, Virginia from the outside world. I was invited to festivals, into stores, and restaurants. I published articles in a small newspaper in Virginia and enjoyed many years blogging. My furry body has been published in several Brown and Trout Alaskan Malamute Calendars including the new issue for 2016. I am May!
My most important job while on earth was being a member of the Perdue Zoo where I tried my best to keep my mom sane and safe. That was a mighty big job. I know she is going to have a tough time for a while. She promised me she would be okay. I gave her a look of doubt with my big brown eyes. She then told me she would "try" to be okay. I know God will see her through; He is faithful. However, I would ask that you extend both my mom and dad lots of grace as they grieve.
Woofs and Wags,
