One very much loved member of our family is our precious little Yorkie, Koda, who you see here in my post in a few places 😊
Koda is one and a half and a daily joy in our lives. He is a very lovable little guy and full of so much energy!! Keeps us on our toes as he loves to have all of our attention whenever he can! He is a very smart little one as most Yorkies are.. as most pets of any kind are if you put the time in with them and give them lots of love!!
Our First Loss
Two years ago we lost our first special little furry member of our family, our beloved Tia, after 13 years. Tia was a Yorkie/Shitzu cross but full of Yorkie spirit !!
It broke our hearts when we lost Tia very unexpectedly after a few days of her being ill. We should have known the day may have been coming closer because she was 13 years old and had had a heart problem since born, but nevertheless it is never easy to lose anyone special to your heart.
The morning we lost her, Tia still had one last burst of energy as she bounded up the stairs and then just lay on our bed surrounded by her blankets and toys. We took her to the Vet expecting that she had a flu or cold as she was so despondent , but in my arms, while we waited, our little Tia had a seizure and then within moments she took her last few breaths. I was in total disbelief and just stood there crying for over twenty minutes as they tried to explain to me what we had to do to put her to rest.. what all of our options were. I couldn’t even think clearly at all!! I think I was in shock and utter disbelief and that lasted for days. I had a total feeling of emptiness and loss and it was so so quiet around the house without little Tia following me around and being there to greet me if I returned from being out. We had enjoyed her company for 13 years and have so many memories we cherish.
We had been very lucky with our Tia as since she was born, she had never been seriously ill with any ailment, nor had she ever had any accidents! We had purchased a Pet Policy for Tia shortly after we had brought her home at eight weeks of age. We personally had decided to buy just an accident insurance policy as she was so small and our first concern of course was her hurting herself somehow as she ran and jumped everywhere so quickly… Also, she was very fast to be right behind you when you least expected it and I was always terrified of someone tripping over her and her getting hurt… never mind the person who also might get tripped up! In all of our years with our precious Tia she never got injured but the premiums on her policy were kept up to date right until the very sad time that we lost her. We just wanted to be sure that she was protected just like we are with our own life insurance and protection policies in case of emergencies.
Pet Insurance for our Furry Friends
There are so many different companies and so many different kinds of coverages that you can enroll your beloved pets in to be sure you cover any kind of emergency .. or even regular check ups and care.
We searched carefully when we bought coverage originally for our Tia and we did the same searches for our little Koda. Again, although illness can come along unexpectedly, we are always worried about accidents as well, as they are unpredictable!
I have researched many different companies in looking at coverages and options and after extensive research about their coverages, and after reading all the reviews and stories and seeing the excellent ratings, if you live in the U.S.A., We recommend pet health insurance from
