Today has been an extremely hard day. Our beloved dog, Mac, passed away this morning. It really caught us off guard… it was completely out of the blue, which makes it that much harder. He had a belly ache last night, but he often got sick after eating dinner. Mac wasn’t exactly a healthy dog… we rescued him from a puppy mill 4 years ago. He was a breeder dog (hence the name Mac, as in Mac Daddy). When he came to live with us, he was in very bad shape. His mate passed away the day they were rescued and Mac had heartworms so bad the vet didn’t think he would make it either. His teeth were rotted something horrible- we had to have all but three of them removed. But that little solider fought. He was truthfully the sweetest dog that ever lived. I brought him to school with me often and my students loved him dearly. He could be a stinker- which only added to his charm, and usually didn’t listen to a word Ian said. But we love that little bugger- and always will- more than words can say. Pets become such an important part of families… it’s just not going to be the same without him. 😦
Please send happy thoughts his way.
I miss you already Mac and I will see you again someday. Rest in peace, buddy.
We LOVE you.
My adorable mom texted me this poem this afternoon…thanks, Mom… You are the best.
Brown and white and pure delight
His future went from bleak to bright
When a fairy princess rescued him
How his tail wagged when she took him in!
She loved him, fed him, made him well
Was this a dream? He could not tell
This happy he had never been
And he never wanted for anything …again.
