    I am saddened to hear of your loss. Knowing that Kiska will not be there to see us off daily, or be there to share in the joy of our catch on our return, is a loss to all who have had that experience. She will be misses by all of her friends.

    So sorry about Kiska. I know all of you at the Lodge miss Kiska greatly. Will never forget when Kiska and I walked up the hill to the cabins. She had to stop a couple of times to rest. I told her we are getting old together and know how she feels. Will miss her at the banquet too.

    Jackie, Rich and the Shelter Lodge ohana

    My heartfelt condolence to all of you. I just learned of Kiska’s passing and am saddened by your loss. She was such a sweet dog and considered official greeter of the lodge. We loss our “Mikey” of 17 years in 2009 and know the heartbreak of losing a pet. Until we meet each other again at the “Rainbow Bridge”, take care.

    With much aloha,
    Jimmy Ito

    “Good dog, Kiska!”
