A Memorial to "Mikhailya"

Mikhailya passed away on Wednesday night, June 12, 2013. It was a combination of old age afflictions and neurological events.....  She was ten years old, having reached that milestone in March.  Her biography is on her home page on the Blysskennels.us website.  Her complete obituary is located at Blyss Blog for that date.
After living with her at home for ten years, it is difficult to say good-bye to Mikhailya.  However, she leaves a legacy through her puppies, especially those of the International Champion Majenkir of Blyss Magnus of Japan.  His impending visit back to the US in 2014 is looked forward to with enormous anticipation.

Mikhailya (CH Majenkir Myt Ksar Mikhailovna) “Mikhailya” will always live in our memories where she dazzled us with her sweet personality and  exquisite beauty.

Mikhailya and Lorene on the beach

Tho' you are gone
Your Hounds will always love you.
Your image is burned into their hearts
They wait every day for you to return and love them
Again and take them running in the forest
Just beyond our house at dawn. 
Instead, their wait is futile for you will never return
Again, and  they are left with only me. 

The white Hound understands this by now.
Still, she searches for you among the hidden paths among the trails
That cris-cross  the mountains, encircling them,winding up and down
The ravines and precipices throughout the woods,
Her world.  Into water she runs gaily with her puppy
In search of traces of you left behind on happy days
Her rest is haunted. You are still together in her dreams.
