Heavy Heart

One minute I'm fine, and the next I'm in pieces.  We had to say goodbye to our sweet Maddie on Friday.  I alternate between dwelling on the good times and bemoaning the difficult end.  I can only be grateful she had 13.5 years on this earth to make everyone around her so happy.

Her energy and vivacity were infectious, sometimes inspiring, and often exhausting.  I will be forever her Maddie's debt for teaching me to love dogs.  The joy she - and all dogs I will love for the rest of my life - bring me is unmatchable.  I know we gave Maddie a great life and she always knew how much we loved her.

Goodbye, sweet girl.  We will never forget you.


  1. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm certain she knew she was loved.

  2. What sad news. While she made you happy, at least you also know you were the happiest moments of her life!

  3. Oh Kathy, I'm so sorry to hear this. What a beautiful tribute to her. The three of you were all lucky to have found one another and had so many good times together.

  4. Kathy, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. As a fellow dog owner, I can't imagine what you are going through. My thoughts are with you.


  5. So very sorry, Kath. You know I super loved Maddie. She was a great dog and so well cared for and loved by you and John.
