After four days of being sad, suffering loss, and just feeling empty - I decided that this is not the way that Maddie would want things to be. Maddie worked hard to protect me - always guarding the house - always protecting me. She liked when I was happy - it made her happy. We shared our happiness together - good food in the kitchen, a nice walk in the neighborhood, a big warm hug after a tough day. I have fond memories of Maddie - the game of tag in the front yard - how she worked so hard to stay when told to do so, even though she could not stand to have me out of her sight. She knew how much I loved for her to give me a high-five -- her big beautiful paw slapping my hand. When our puppy could not figure out how to play fetch - Maddie would get up, walk out to the ball and bring it back to us. Everyone that met Maddie could only smile. She had love for everyone she met. Now her love is in heaven. My memories of Maddie will always be with me - I will always have her love with me. Thank you Maddie - thank you for all of the wonder times we shared - thank you for your love.
