The Life of Kylie

Yesterday, sadly Kylie had to move on from her life with us to greater adventures. But we willmisskylie3 never forget how she made our lives better every single day.

Kylie was truly exceptional, and one of a kind, and for those of you who haven’t spent a lot of time on her website here are some things you may not know:

Kylie was more well-traveled than lots of people. She was born in hawaii which truly makes it paradise, we adopted her from the Humane Society there when she was eight months old. Then we moved to new jersey when she was 4 and that became her launching pad. She’s literally been from coast to coast (and Canada) including:

New York City (including Times Square, Central Park, and Rockerfeller Center at Christmas)
Amish Country
New England
Washington DC
Las Vegas (one of her favorite destinations)
Plus many less “exciting” destinations like Kansas, Texas, Nebraska, South Dakota, etc.

Kylie loved road trips! She visited multiple world’s wonders – Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, The Grand Canyon, and Old Faithful. She’s seen Hoover Dam, The Space Needle, Pike’s Peak, Royal Gorge bridge, the Statue of Liberty, the White House, even the Hockey Hall of Fame (can you believe they wouldn’t let her in)! And of course the ever-popular roadside oddities like Carhenge, that big thermometer in Baker, CA, and the entire town of Roswell, NM.

misskylie2We moved to colorado about seven years ago and Kylie loved it here too. The weather is nice in Denver almost all the time so she got to go on many hikes, and loved climbing up rocks and walking through streams, and chasing bunnies, and she really loves the snow and going sledding and going to the mountains!

Kylie is quite famous! She was on the radio when we had a friend in honolulu that was a dj who let her hang out in the booth with him. Then she moved on to television when her Psychic Puppy Network got media attention. It was featured on the So Graham Norton show in the UK, then she was interviewed for a television show called “The Internet Tonight” on the former TechTV channel (now G4). PPN (the psychic puppy network) was also featured in a newspaper in florida, on USA today’s website, on Seventeen magazine’s website, and for awhile it was a link on Penn & Teller’s website.

Kylie was even a model! Wag n Wash used her as a spokesmodel on their website and in their brochure and print ads. She was very photogenic even though she really didn’t like the camera. Kylie is possibly one of the most photographed dogs in the world, just visit her flickr page (or click all the blue links in this post) and you’ll see what I mean.

Kylie was such a comedian, she made us laugh almost every day. She was our child, our best friend, and she was a Rock Star! She was loved by everyone who knew her, and thanks to this website even by some who never met her. We were so privileged that she shared her life with us.


Of course and our memories of this sweet funny girl will live on. It was all a work of love, for the most special soul we have ever known. We will miss her dearly everyday.

**We have decided that this will not be the end of the story, please read more about it here**

    Something drew me to your web page tonight and I was blown away to see that Kylie was gone. You have my heartfelt sympathy. Kylie was truly a wonderful child and it is heartbreaking to have lost her. I know you are devestated.

    You did so much to help me when I lost Foxy Lady. I could barely stand it when she was taken away from me, but it helped so much when you sent me the beautiful portrait you did of her. It hangs in a place of honor near the entry way to the home she and I shared so she can greet everyone who comes here just as she did when she was living with me.

    I recall how similar Kylie and Foxy Lady were to one another and how much you loved Kylie. I am so pleased that these web sites continue on in rememberance of her. She truly was a star and we will see her again in Heaven.

    You have my sincerest sympathy at having to wait that long to be with Kylie again. Jerry

    I love Kylie’s smile. You could tell she was a special doggie and that she was loved. That’s great that she got to see many different places. Thanks for adding her photo to our Kitty & Doggie News photo group.

    As we’ve said on the site as well as the diary, Kylie’s site isn’t going anywhere, it will remain as a remembrance of the life we shared with her. We also continue to write about our life with our wonderful little girl on the Two girls and a dog website.
