Pillars of Strength - A Special Day for K

Happy Valentine's Day to ALL!  Valentine's Day is such a very special day, symbolized by the heart and characterized by the expression of love.  We cannot think of a more appropriate day on which to honor a very special friend of ours - K, the gorgeous chocolate lab from Romping and Rolling in the Rockies.  Some of you first came to know K and her wonderful human KB from our post back in October of 2010 - you can read it HERE.  We know that many of you then became ardent followers of their fantastic blog, where you can read about their sightings of bears, mountain lions, bobcats, coyote, elk, and beautiful birds and flowers.  You will witness some of the most amazing mountain views and nature at its best.  If you don't know K, you really do need to pay this blog a visit - we guarantee you that you will be hooked.

Now the reason for this special tribute to K is that she is now facing some very challenging health issues due to the evil "C".  She is currently undergoing chemotherapy which she faces with incredible courage.  She is one determined pup who has a zest for life that we all so admire.  We think she has acquired her determination and zeal from her human.
Below is a photo of one of K's paws.  KB often refers to the "pillar of strength" in her posts.  

And so today, we are joining forces with many in the blogging community as pillars of strength for K. We all know the Power of the Paw.  And so now let us stand tall and solid in support of K as her pillars.

We love you, K.  Be strong.

We have 16 strong pillars at the ready for our wonderful pal.  Be strong, K - we are all here for you.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, Lightning, and Mom

KB said...

You are such good friends to us... all 18 pillars of you (including the momster's legs). Thanks for your heartfelt words of support. Your post is an incredible gift, and I am so grateful. I am also thankful for your friendship over the past few years - it's one of the best parts of having started a blog.

Thank you.

Sagira said...
