My Tribute to Maddie

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

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.

    What a beautiful "tribute" to Maddie. How wonderful to share the fond memories you're able to hold on to. May every new day come with fewer tears of pain/loss & more smiles of those fond memories.

    Again, you're in my thoughts & prayers.

    One of the downsides of pets is that we outlive them, yet I wouldn't trade one minute of time I have had with all the cats I have loved and lost. I have three more cats now and I will go through their loss at some point, but I cannot imagine life without my pets. The grief is deep when they go, but we always get the next one, who is loved just as much.

    Maddie sounds like my Shepherd. We adore her for all the same reasons you wrote. I'm glad you were able to share a lot of wonderful times with her.

    Maddie was very special. She will always have a special place in your heart. It is so very difficult to lose our best friend. I am truly sorry for your loss. I lost my best friend in June. My heart goes out to you. emoticon
