It’s been a year

In a few minutes, it will be exactly a year since Kyla went to a better place. She’s with Stuart now and other friends, both old and new. We think about her many times during every day. She was the heart and soul of the house. There are times when she lets us know that she’d watching over us.


Life is so short, we’ll see you soon, Kyla. Until then, we have your pictures and memories like this one from the first week you were here (December 2002) and had the worst ever Scottie cut by the rescue group-we loved you anyway.



The world owes you big time for donning your tinfoil hat and fending off the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012.


About Kismet

I'm a 16 year old Indian Ringneck parrot curmudgeon in New River, Arizona in the wild west country. If you're a sunflower seed, you're dinner.

  1. I’m sure she is still there… a girl like Kyla never leaves completely. I often think “WWKD” and sometimes she sends me a sign… or an Arrroooo….

  2. Wow seems like yesterday we were having the highland games,she was so much fun at my Castle Gathering I held at the games,xx Speedy

  3. We also think about your beloved Kyla as well. Kyla and Stuart were the first friends we made in the ‘world of blog’. You have both enriched our lives. I’m sure she is a curmudgeonly across the ‘Bridge as she always was. Miss them all, desperately. Big hugs to you and your family Kismet – hope you are able to remember her with more smiles than tears now. xxx

  4. What a great wee girl. Say hi to Angus Fala for us, Ruffles too ❤️❤️❤️

  5. Funny how we both saw our lost loves in the sky after they passed. Thinking of you all today ❤ *ear licks* Noodle

  6. It will be two months for us soon and the pain is so great. I’m in tears most of the time. We miss our girl so. I know how you feel.

    Have a woof woof day remembering your baby. 🙂

  7. At least we have the memories. We see Kyla all the time on our Scottiemobile plate, and of course, we see our Daisy, too. Gone but never forgotten.

  8. Our Sadie is there with you.

  9. Will always miss and love our dear Kyla, we had such fun xxoxxx

  10. There was and will be, ONLY ONE KYLA…!!! She was an Individual!!! OH, the Wonderful Memories she left for us… We thank her OFTEN for Those.

  11. she was a one and only, for sure! we feel better knowing she was there to welcome all our other scottie furiends to the Bridge.

  12. While we didn’t know Kyla, we feel your pain. Photos and memories that you have shared tell us that she was quite a wonderful package. Many of our dear (and mutual friends) have transitioned this year, and it has been very challenging emotionally. Your selection of photos today have made us both smile Kismet….thank you for that!

  13. Kyla was one of a kind…..that photo of the Kyla-cloud is proof she’s watching over you all……………

    Hugs, Sammy

  14. Kyla TY4BAF. My stats show eleven people have come over and played Going Home from my post last year since noon.

  15. Never judge by a haircut, we’ve all got a butcher job before! Cheers to a great life, well lived and well remembered.

  16. God these photos made me smile so much. Thank you for that. Tinfoil…..gotta make sure I’ve got some with me at all times. Too bad Mr. Stu didn’t like things on his head. But now, he and his Kyla girl are romping. Playing. Eating. Eating. And eating. He’s treating her like a lady and she’s playing coy. And both of them are wearing hats. Who knew?

    What lives these two had. Now they’re together. Perfect harmony.

    Thank you, our dear friends across the miles.

  17. Kyla is with us all of the time. He have our wonderful license plate and many of the great pictures that are so memorable. I never saw the tin foil hat. It is a gem! Boy friend and girl friend are together again.

  18. They will be waiting to greet us when we cross too. So many loves wait that death holds no threat for us. God Bless you all in Blogville, and prayers for all in emotional pain.

  19. We lost a lot of dear friends in 2015. Kyla is among good company.

    Aroo to you,

  20. I know how these milestones are, and I know how much you miss your beloved girl. I have a feeling that Kyla is not that far away, she truly continues to live on in your heart.

  21. I think I purposely forget death anniversaries. Too painful. I always remember the birthdays and gotcha days though! My first schnauzer died on a new moon in 2002 and I still get teary when I see a new moon. I can’t even imagine the dread and heartache of the days running up to the day one passes over.

  22. We started following you around the time sweet Kyla crossed the Rainbow Bridge; all the photos of her show she was a special girl. Hoping tender memories of your sweet girl have buoyed your spirits. ❤
