Kendra went to sleep peacefully at her vet’s office 23 days before her 11th birthday. She had not been feeling well for some time, but never complained. The vet had become a very familiar persona in her life. The final diagnosis was devastating cancer in the right kidney had spread to her spleen, liver and heart.
This precious little girl was turned over to the San Antonio Area Scottie and Westie Rescue in April 2009. The owner stated that her son had moved in with her, and he and Kendra did not get along. After spending two months in foster care, Kendra was adopted into her forever home where she quickly became a favorite in the neighborhood. She was a sweet, shy little girl who loved going for walks, and diligently supported her Westie companion, Toby, chasing after squirrels in the back yard. She never learned to play with toys, preferring instead to spend a lot of time in her “safe” places, crates and dog beds, watching family activities. She loved other dogs, but had an uncanny ability to set boundaries. The respect this tiny, 15-pound Scottie girl commanded around younger, bigger, rambunctious dogs was truly amazing.
Little Kendra brought immeasurable joy to her adoptive family. Her sweet disposition and unique personality deeply touched all who knew her. She was like a canine soul-mate to her owner, if that’s possible between humans and dogs.
