Date of Birth: Unknown (approx 1995-1996) - December 19, 2010
Owners: Stella and Kevin Cooper
Kassie is our first dog and has been busy teaching us over the years how to be good dog parents. Kassie is named by the neighborhood kids that took her in. We believe she was dropped off at Stella's parents house. She was 20lbs underweight and infested with fleas. She cowered down a the least bit of movement and had no idea how to play. Kassie is a very important part of our lives and always seems to know when to give comfort or do something silly to keep us going. She has been there for Stella while Kevin was active duty in the 82nd Airborne. She gave plenty of comfort when needed while Kevin's fellow soldiers were in harms way or passed away in training accidents. She has helped raise every dog that has come into the house. Her favorite pasttime other then playing the Alpha female of the house is playing ball. She is very ball obsessive and is a fantastic retriever. We are very lucky to have her!
Kassie passed away in the arms of her dad on December 19, 2010 with the assistance of the oncall Veterinarian staff at the Carolina Emergency Clinic. we are all heartbroken over the loss of our girl. She had a malignant tumor that ruptured and caused internal bleeding. Run Free little girl.
