Kaibab's Blue Moon October 20, 2002 - February 18, 2010

Last week Luna left this earth to go be with her human dad, Alan, her dog parents, Abra and Zaltana, and her littermate, Zephyr. For nearly a year Luna has been having bouts of aspirate pneumonia, and last week the pneumonia was too much and Luna had to leave us.

Luna is survived by her human mom, Sharon, and her nephew, Jemie (from the E Litter). She lived a charmed life with Sharon and Alan in St. Louis, and was joined by Jemie after Alan died. Luna had a city house and country house, and a life filled with love -- we should all be so blessed.

Sharon did everything and more to try and understand why Luna was aspirating and getting pneumonia; we hope a necropsy will shed some light on this because in life, there were no answers. We are so grateful to Sharon for giving Luna the very best care possible, and for being willing to help us try to understand Luna's death with a necropsy.

Thanks to Sharon for her friendship over the past seven years, and for loving Luna so much. Sharon shares these pictures of sweet Luna with us:


  1. My deepest sympathy to Sharon. Luna looked just beautiful. It sounds like she had a wonderful life. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. My sympathy to Sharon and Jemie. Give Jemie a big hug for me as you both miss your dear, beautiful Luna.
