In Loving Memory Of:
Lady Luna Cubit
Dame Grand Cross Of The Order Of The Canine Knights Foundation
Luna was brought home as a puppy in the summer of 2009 and was welcomed by four cats and her best friend Shoes, a black Labrador retriever. Although we could never forget all of the damaged furniture and “accidents” Luna had, we now look back on those days and wish we could relive it all over again. She began to acquire certain characteristics that cats have, like trying to lay on the back of the couch. Luna has a certain charisma to her and light in her eyes that brought a smile to everyone’s face.
Her most favorite thing to do was give everyone kisses, and they were far from normal, and well, very wet. When you received a kiss from Luna, your whole day was better; your bad day was turned into something truly wonderful. Even after growing up, she always cuddled with everyone. At night she had to always sleep between us, and periodically kicked someone off of the bed. She was a professional at playing ‘possum’.
Luna was always at the veterinarian office for things like urinary tract infections and ear problems, and everyone there came to know and love her as their own. All of the staff would melt at the sight of her as she would lay on her side and command a much enjoyed belly rub. At the young age of three years old, Luna was diagnosed with canine mast cell cancer. The news was devastating, and we were very worried. Together though, we all made it through and beat her terrible disease. Throughout her bout with cancer, she never became discouraged or afraid.
At seven years old, things went terribly wrong when Luna was diagnosed with immune mediated hemolytic anemia. She endured a blood transfusion, several days in intensive care, and more than periodic office visits. There came a point where Luna’s body just couldn’t fight her disease any longer and we unfortunately had to send her to the Rainbow Bridge. Before Luna passed away, she was awarded her Knighthood along with her very own special medal for love, called “The Luna Cross”.
Luna was by our side for seven short years, and in that time she helped inspire the Canine Knights Foundation and offered us an unforgettable, pure form of love. We will always miss our little girl and she’ll always have a special place in our hearts. May she rest in peace, and may her legacy live on.
We’ll never forget how you seemed to always smile and brightened everyone’s lives.
Coming home as a puppy, you were the cutest thing in the whole entire world.
We’ll never forget all of the wonderful moments like this. This was the day we had photos taken of you when we learned you had cancer. Who would have known that you’d beat it. We’re so proud of you.
You were always so pretty. The way the sun hit your coat, especially in the fall was nothing short of magical.
Please accept the gift of this foundation as our thanks for your loyalty and companionship throughout our 7 short years. May your legacy live on, and may others affected by canine cancer be aided in your name. You will forever be in our hearts.
We love you Luna.
Love, Mom and Dad
