In Memory of Miss Louise

Tanya Kim honors her beloved best friend in this year’s Friends for Life! Walk

By Get Leashed & Tanya Kim


As dog lovers, we’re conditioned to love extra hard. We let a furry companion into our hearts, share countless adventures, confide in them, cuddle them, let them celebrate our victories and comfort our losses knowing that in all likelihood, one day we’re going to have to say goodbye to them as they depart our world forever. It’s a hard kind of love but it’s the kind a dog lover can’t ignore.

A fan and friend of Get Leashed lost her long-time faithful dog, Miss Louise, earlier this year. She was as warm-hearted as a dog can be but what’s more, she gave back by supporting other animals in the “Friends For Life! Walk.”

Below is a synopsis of the event and how you can donate to support Miss Louise in her legacy online, as well as touching words from Tanya about her beloved dog. The walk takes place on September 19th and 20th in Newmarket, ON.


“She was a loyal companion. She brought joy to everyone she met. She was a supporter of the Ontario SPCA. She was a big bundle of unconditional love and my furry best friend. She was and will always be my sweet Miss Louise.

For many years, Miss Louise (aka Weezie) loved participating in the Ontario SPCA’s “Friends For Life! Walk” to help other animals, animals that may have been abandoned, abused, or surrendered because their owners were unable or unwilling to care for them any longer. This year, please join me as we honour the memory of my never to be forgotten best friend, my beloved Miss Louise.

Every little bit helps and you can donate online – it’s safe, secure and super easy. Making this simple gift would mean the world to me and Weezie because together we can give more animals a second chance at a life they all deserve.”
