maddie r.i.p.

Our family is smaller today. We had to say goodbye to Maddie, who spent twelve-plus of her fifteen years as a loyal, exuberant and joyful member of our pack. She was a good sister to four different brothers, including Button, the newest and smallest with her below.
My heart aches from the loss, but is full with memories and gratitude for my golden girl's companionship, love, and unending faith that something good could happen at any time. Maddie, I love you, I miss you, and I'll never forget you. You're a good girl.


  1. Oh Jeff, I am so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful dog she was! She's probably running around with all of mine from the past now. Goldens are a very, very special breed.

  2. So sorry, Jeff. Saying goodbye to our pets is hard to do.

  3. Jeff, I'm sad for you. I recently lost a really special's tough. Thank goodness Maddie had you for 12 years. She's very lucky!
