      Run free, Kimber

      Oh, Kimber. You took a piece of our hearts when you left us.

      Kimber was sweet, and gentle, and patient, and focused, and happy. She was a terribly BUSY puppy, always on the go, always wanting to play, let's go go go! She flunked advanced obedience (what do you mean "hold this sit?" we should play!), got a little too competitive in flyball, and absolutely adored agility. She had such drive, intelligence, and curiosity, she would've made an excellent working dog.

      Every person she met was a new friend, and other people loved her. We joked she was a Walmart greeter dog- when we were out and about, she liked to stop to say hello to people, but had little patience for standing around to chat. Let's keep moving! My friend and I said she was our personal trainer/pace dog- no lollygagging when Kimber's around.

      She grew up in the country and never lost her taste for exploring (another nickname: LabraDora the Explorer), and right until the end, found joy in sniffing trees and grass and plants. In her later years, she enjoyed many hours sitting in the front yard, watching the world go by.

      Rarely was she goofy, but she made me laugh every day. Every vet we saw mentioned how happy she was, and how she seemed younger than her years. She had a great smile.

      I have to believe that you are waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I expect a *very* quick kiss, a big smile, and then for you to say, "C'mon Mom! Get a frisbee for me and let's go play!"
