My dog Kailey is like my kid. I don’t have kids (and don’t plan to) and I really feel like Kailey is my kid. She has been with me through several moves, various towns, jobs, friends… and she’s always been here and been happy to see me. Though, if I’m honest, she does like my dad better than me, she is a great friend and I can’t imagine how beside myself I will be when she passes. She’s been my rock that I come home to every night. My confidant. She is just my absolute baby. If I could somehow make her live forever, I would, but as that’s not possible, I had her tissue preserved so that I can clone her one day. I’ll be sad when she’s gone, but I know I’ll have part of her with me one day again.
