If we told her there was fun to be had, Kylie was always willing to take a leap of faith..

She knew we would always be there to catch her!

Time goes by so fast.. and it never comes back. Of the 7,000 plus pictures we have of Kylie this is perhaps my favorite sequence. It captured a moment of pure joy, exuberance, and Kylie-ness..  (click on the thumbnails for a larger image)

And then the moment was gone..

We haven’t had a moment of pure joy, exuberance, and Kylie-ness in three years now. We can only look back and try to remember those moments as time keeps rushing by.

Thank you, Kylie, for giving us so many happy moments, hours, days to remember!

We miss you so much.

I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap its arms around me
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
And feel, feel what its like to be new

Cause in my head there’s a greyhound station
Where I send my thoughts to far off destinations
So they may have a chance of finding a place
where they’re far more suited than here

And I cannot guess what we’ll discover
When we turn the dirt with our palms cupped like shovels
But I know our filthy hands can wash one another’s
And not one speck will remain

And I do believe it’s true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

Where soul meets body
Where soul meets body

And I do believe it’s true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you’re the only song I want to hear
A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

From the first time we heard it, this song was always all about Kylie for us. She isn’t just a our soul mate, she was our combined souls, embodied.

We did however, sometimes change the lyrics to be even more Kylie-appropriate.. “A melody LOUDLY ROARING through my atmosphere.”

Sometimes, especially when it was particularly warm you would catch Kylie with one or both of her ears flipped back..

Whoever spotted it would say “Kylie’s got her top down!” or sometimes, “Kylie’s got her lid off!”

We never knew how she did it, never caught her in the act. Which I’m sure is no accident because as you can see, she would get pretty annoyed when we took her picture like that – Like we were catching her without her makeup on or something!

My what a big mouth you have, Kylie..

Yes, usually this was a yawn in progress, but its still funny (and a little scary)!

Kylie’s first (of many) professional photo shoot was in black & white.

Such a beautiful girl! She looks very glamorous, and is still featured on Doghouse Studios website..

Thanks, Xan!

Okay, so she wasn’t always an angel…

And that’s why we really miss her!

We had only been in our house, where Kylie finally had her own big back yard, about a week and half or so when us girls went out for the evening to a concert downtown. It was the first time Kylie had been left alone in the house at all, let alone for several hours. Actually Kylie was hardly ever, very rarely ever left home alone at all, we took her absolutely everywhere we thought we could get away with it and even some places we knew we shouldn’t. It was so rare in fact I think it bothered us more than her when it did happen, she was probably happy on occasion to get some “me time” without us gettin’ in her business. On this particular evening however that was apparently not the case!

One of the first things we did when we moved in, like literally day one, was to go and get a doggie door that fit properly to give her immediate access to her yard 24/7. So its not like she was trapped indoors, so I’m not sure why she was so unhappy that we left, but she proceeded to spend the evening letting one of us know exactly what she thought…

Somehow Kylie managed to fill one girl’s bed with sand!!

What was impressive about it was that the bed was in the back of the house, as far away from the doggie door as it possibly could have been, and there wasn’t a trail of sand leading to it, there was just a bucket-full in the bed itself! Much time was devoted to speculating as to how she did it, and many theories were concocted.. Did she dig it up, clench up her little paws while she walked down the hall to hold it between her paws, waiting to release it until she got up the ramp and onto the bed?  Did she roll around outside then come back in, down the hall, up the ramp, and aggressively shake as a dog will do? We asked her… but she wasn’t talkin’! She just looked around for somebody else to blame, which lead to another theory… did she hire some raccoons?

To make matters worse, or better if you’re on Kylie’s side.. it rained most of the time we were gone. So it wasn’t just sand, it was wet-dog-scented sand!
