RIP Mackie

Our 13 year old golden cross, Mackie, had to be put down Christmas Eve after suffering several seizures over night. We suspect it was a brain tumour that eventually put her down. She was an adoption from the Humane Society and a great friend for 5 years. She played a big role over the last year training our new dog who needed some help after spending her first year in a hoarder's home with up to 85 other dogs. I guess Mackie felt her job was done and it was time to move on. A job well done and never forgotten.

There is never a good time to say goodbye to a dear friend this time of year seems to make it even worse.
