1: In Loving Memory of Kiya Jane Ehrhardt Joined Katie's Family in February 2000 Joined Callie, Messiah, and Bailey in Dog Heaven on February 13, 2011 | A story often told, never written. Sissy saw Katie and knew immediately she'd found the Perfect One. Sissy wasn't attractive to anyone, and no one gave her a second look, probably not even a first. When she saw Katie she spruced up, put on her best grin, pranced and made herself known. Katie thought not. Return trip. This time Katie paid some attention to this sorry pooch. Not cute. Sissy? I think not. Wait. "Mom, I have a new dog! Go look at your email. Right now. I sent you pictures. She is sooooooooooooo cute!" Pause Email opened. I say "Ohmygodshe'snotagoodlooker! WhattheheckdoIsay?" "Oh, Katie! She is so cute." I lied. Later. Sissy, now and forever Kiya, in the Wisconsin snow. I say, "Katie, she's so cute!" I am not lying. -Veronica Zuege

4: Some spectacular memories of Kiya... I remember how nervous Kiya was in the car when Katie first picked her up. We were driving to Katie's cool apartment on hwy 360, Kiya timidly crawled from lap to lap seeking comfort in her new family. It was a great scene of Kiya, Natty and Karma all running around in about 5 inches of snow in the Beloit Little League park. I also enjoyed playing disc golf with Katie and Kiya. Kiya really seemed to fit in that landscape with her coyote look. We often thought that Kiya looked like a combination of coyote, bat, hyena, wolf. -Travis Ehrhardt

5: I once knew a dog named Kiya To whom I did admiya Her master was Kato Who I love no brivato They were a good team And will always be a good dream -Lee Zuege

6: William's Creek Depot Tarpley, TX | A wonderful weekend in Tarpley. The girls got to listen to Susan Gibson at the William's Creek Depot. At first Kiya was afraid to walk on the street signs that cover the floor. Both Natty and Kiya felt like one of the girls! It wore Kiya out! -Angela Niemiec

7: The best story about Kiya is when Katie went to the shelter. She told us she had gone, and that they had a connection, but Katie left empty handed. While she was walking out, next to the fencing where Kiya was, she began running around and then all of a sudden climbed the fence! Katie was somewhat reluctant, but went back and took her home with her. Kiya continued to sneak out by climbing the fence a few times at the Vineland house. but, she always came back to be with Katie. Kiya had the best smile, and she could make you smile back at her as soon as you saw her. Te amo Kiya!!!! -Natalie Zsigo

8: I was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with Kiya. Even though she was missing a few of her teeth you could almost see her smile when she was happy. She was very sweet and had a gentle soul, and Katie was lucky to have such a great animal companion. I enjoyed chasing Kiya around the table and all around the house. We played that game often. -Gabriel T. Jeantete

9: Many years ago, Kiya joined us on a trip to Taos, NM. We all went up to my family's land up on Bobcat Pass. Kiya sat patiently in the back of the vehicle while we drove up the mountain. I'm sure her nose told her we were going someplace new and some place far away from city smells. When we opened the door, she jumped out and took off running. She looked so excited and ran and explored all over the place. It was almost as if she couldn't contain herself and she had reconnected with something very important to her. She kept running so fast, and looked so free and happy. When we all loaded back into the vehicle to return, she quickly fell asleep and looked so peaceful. That was a special day for her and it made me happy to see her so content. -Gabriel T. Jeantete

10: TROUBLE | Kiya and my dog Zeke used to take me and Katie hiking in the green belt on weekend mornings. They were the best hangover cure team ever. Sometimes when we were done, Kiya would jump into my car, like, "Hey guys, where ya going? I can come too, right?" She could as far as I was concerned. Katie and Kiya are like the Brangelina of the dog/human world. Everyone loves them both, but never as much as they loved each other. -Beth Rosch

12: Kiya & Natty

13: Baker and Kiya had a special relationship. They enjoyed each other's company, and definitely loved playing together. As captured above, even Natty joined in on the shenanigans. When Baker was smaller, Kiya would pick up and carry him around, just as she did years prior with Bitty (aka Lowie). Kiya never quit, it was always Baker that would surrender! -Angela Niemiec

14: One of my first memories of my friendship with Katie is a trip we took to Red Bud Isle with Kiya and Bonzo. It was here that she told me about how she came to adopt Kiya- or rather, how Kiya came to adopt her. It was as if Kiya knew that she could not let Katie get away - she knew they had to be together and would scale walls and fences to prove it. And while some people would have fled and ignored the signs, Katie understood - and to understand that says so much about Katie, so much of why I love her. To this day, it's one of the best love stories I know. To know the story, and then to know the journey their lives would take together is truly a gift. I am heartbroken for the loss of Kiya, but so thankful that she became a part of Katie's heart - and of the hearts of everyone who met her - including me. -Allie Hewlett

16: I know this isn't the best photo of Kiya and Natty, but this is the moment I knew that I loved them - preparing for St. Patty's day :) I was never much of "dog person" but it didn't take long for me to fall head over heals for these two amazing creatures. Kiya taught me to smile - life's not so bad. She reminded me that it's important to love to the fullest. She has forever instilled in me that no matter how old you are, you must always remember to play! She crept into my heart, and made a place in there for pups! I am forever grateful to have met, lived with, and loved her! -Angela Niemiec

17: Two memories stand out for me when it comes to the inseparable team of Katie and Kiya. One is from when we were out in Tarpley and the water was raging and we were all tubing. Kiya wouldn't get in and swim cuz she was cool like that, and Katie really had no idea where Kiya was as we were racing down the rapids. I remember thinking I would have been freaked, not knowing where my dog was, but Katie knew that Kiya was fine. She knew she wouldn't go anywhere, or do anything stupid. I think that honestly helped me learn to trust my own dogs a little more, in terms of being out at the ranch and realizing that they want to their people as much as we want them. My other Kiya memory has to do with the night of Katie's surprise party. We had managed to pull off the surprise of epic proportions, and Kiya got sick. It was sad, sad times, but I was hell bent and determined to help Katie take care of Kiya AND make it to the party. I know we took her to the emergency vet, and I can't remember if it was the time she was diagnosed with lymphoma or if it was the pepperoni incident, but what i do remember from each of those times is that Kiya totally surprised us all by seeming to be really really sick and then being totally fine. She was a miracle dog and I loved how Katie reveled in the glory of Kiya's coyote-ness. Her under-bite, her one of a kind funky Kiya-ness. She was a cool, cool dog. I wish our awesome dogs lived as long as us. alas. Besos to Katie. -Shannon Evans

18: Rainbow Bridge There is a place, just this side of heaven, called Rainbow Bridge. This is where our pets go when they die. At Rainbow Bridge there are meadows and hills where all of our special friends can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water, shade, and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All of the animals who had been ill or old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong, just as we remember them in out dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her eyes bright and intent; her eager body begins to quiver. She begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your friend finally meet you cling together in joyous reunion. Never to be parted again, you caress the beloved head and look once more into the trusting eyes of your friend, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together. -Austin Vet Hospital
