Today was an impossibly sad day in the Martin house. We had to say goodbye to the 4 legged member of the Martin men after a long battle with cancer.
We adopted Kai as a puppy from a shelter when Sean and I were newly engaged. He spent every day of his puppy years at the dog park. Our only "child" at the time and we spoiled him.
He welcomed his three little brothers and took on the role of protector and life guard. Kai was not an alpha dog by nature so at times he seemed stressed by his new role but he dutifully took it on anyway. "Kai" would go on to become all three boys' first word.
He will be missed. RIP Kai.
