Dear Kalli,

I didn't tell you enough how much I love you. I didn't tell you enough how sitting with you calmed me. I didn't tell you how you were my first baby and I loved you like you were my very own. I'm sorry I didn't tell you these things but I hope you knew them.

Petting your head and back. Sloppy kisses. Those deep, dark brown eyes. Cuddling on the couch. Laying in bed. I'll miss you. We'll all miss you.

You lived a full life in your 10 years with us. You went on vacations, had doggy sleep-overs, woodsy walks and snacks galore. You were loved by many and missed by more.

We will always cherish our time with you, Buddha. We'll never forget!

Okay... the tears are flowing:( So sorry to hear Kalli passed away!

We enjoyed meeting her at the Outer Banks back in 2005.

Wishing all of you lots of warm thoughts and great memories of your beautiful Kalli... <3

Kalli will always be in our hearts and memories, and will be truly missed. We are lucky to have had her in our lives - she was a wonderful and loving part of our family - so devoted and loyal to all of us. I'll never forget the day she was brought home; how Jennifer just had to rescue her from the trunk of that car full of puppies being given away. We're so glad that she picked you. Kalli was truly one of man's best friends. Our hearts are broken once again - We love and miss you, dear, sweet Kalli.

As I sit here BALLING my eyes out, I could say so much about Kalli.
I loved her like she was my own dog. She was such a big part of our family for so long and my heart will forever hold the void that she filled. Kalli truly was the BEST dog! Her heart was so big and the love she gave was amazing. No matter how upset or sad you were, Kalli would always know how you were feeling. I will truly miss our 'doggy weekends' together. Whenever Jennifer and Kevin were out of town, I was always the first to volunteer, "I'll watch Kalli"! Whenever she was at my house, she was my shadow. I couldn't go to the bathroom without her right at my feet. I'd get out of the shower and there she was, laying right up against the bathtub. Always in the bed with me, Zoe, & Chris and always snuggled right up with her Aunt Julie.
When Kalli got sick, I think I was just as heartbroken as Jennifer. I didn't want her to leave us and feared the day she did.
Kalli, I will always love you and you will always be in my heart. You were truly apart of our family and we will never forget you. You will always remain in our hearts and alive in our memories! Uncle Chris and I love you Bubby!

We will miss our first little "grand-dog" Kalli! She was part of Kevin and Jennifer's plan for their "little family" as they planned to get married. It just doesn't seem that long ago and now We can't believe she is gone. We will miss Kalli coming over and running all over our yard with Shady and Molly. She loved the freedom of running here and she was always with you no matter you were in the house. We are so sorry Kevin and Jennifer. Litle Isabella too.
We love you Kalli and will miss YOU!

Wow...Kalli will be missed by all of us so much...the girls and I were talking about how when they were little and they were "afraid" of Kalli because she was so big so Aunt Mary would give them plastic grocery bags to carry around because Kalli was so afraid of them! I will never forget her big wet kisses!
Kalli was truly one of a kind..

We all miss you Kalli!!!

Oh, Jen. I am so sorry for your loss. I never got the chance to meet Kalli. But, I know she was such an important part of your family. Your love for her was obviously deep. As a huge dog lover, I just bawled watching the video. Big ((hugs)) to you as you grieve the loss of your beloved pup.

I'm so sorry to hear about Kalli. I will always remember standing in your Mom's living room and Kalli ran over to say hi and knocked me down! Even though she was bigger than me, she was a very sweet dog and I'm very sorry for your loss.
