I wore a red dress and a red perfume—Comme des GarçonsSeries 2: Red, Carnation.
[The color Red] carries a largely positive connotation, being associated with courage, loyalty, honor, success, fortune, fertility, happiness, passion, and summer.
On the more negative side, obituaries are traditionally written in red ink, and to write someone’s name in red signals… that they have died.
In Japan, red is a traditional color for a heroic figure.
Kashiko lives on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
I’d like to thank all of you who have offered your loving support over these last, difficult days.

I am so sorry, Dee.
Kashiko looks like he was a lovely, friendly dog, Dee. I’m very sorry for your loss. Giving you a big virtual hug x
Dee, I am so sorry for your loss. It’s a big tragedy which only people who had, loved and lost pets can come close to understand.
Do you have more pictures of Kashiko which you could share with us?
Thank you all so much for your kind words! You are each wonderful ladies, and your empathy means a lot to me 🙂
If you’re interested, there’s a slideshow of Cheeks on our personal blog, Keeping up with the Howe’s.
(for Undina and anyone else 🙂 )
What a lovely dog. All the best, dee.
I am so sorry to hear this and of your loss.
Lots of love and hugs!
Sending hugs. It’s hard to lose a dear pet, but I hope you can take some comfort in happy memories.
Thank you all!
This is a bit late but since I am sure Kashiko is still romping around your heart I would also like to offer my sincere condolences. Losing an animal friend is always way-hard. I still mourn the passing of my beloved George – and October 2011 will mark 2 years! But it’s not painful anymore, just….I dunno exactly what it is..but it’s not awful.
Some lines for you and beautiful Kashiko from Bonnie Raitt’s “Wherever You May Be’
As simple as breathing
I picture your face
All tangled in daydreams
And shielded with Grace
I feel you beside me again.
Wherever you may be
Lift up your head for me
There’s somewhere in my heart
Only for you
Thank you Musette! In a way, it’s easier now that he’s passed, since he’s no longer suffering, but I sure miss him bumping into me first thing when I get home in the evening!
Your thoughtfulness means a lot—thank you again!
