Memories of Maddie
Feb. 17, 2022 To let you go hurt so much, but it was the right thing to do. I never want to see you be in pain or suffer. Your kidney stopped working and there was nothing more we could do. I am hurting so much right now, missing your beautiful eyes and your feisty manner in which you carried yourself. You were the smallest of the Huskies but you were tough as can be. You fought through valley fever and liver and kidney disease. You did things on your terms and that was a great thing. I knew I had to bring you home from the Humane Society when I first saw you. We had 13 great years together out of your 14 years on earth. I miss your energy and the character that you were. You're now with those in the pack you first met when I brought you home, Satch, Sasha and Flame. You completed my family. You are always my "Mad-dog" and I'd do anything to have you back. I can only hope the pain I am feeling right now will subside and I look forward to meeting you again at the Rainbow Bridge. I love you.

Feb. 25, 2022 I brought you home today, Maddie. You are with all the pups who went to the Bridge before you. I put your dish, your leash and collar and an imprint of your paw with your ashes. It still hurts so much to know you are no longer here with me. When I feed the others I always put your empty bowl where I always put it in getting the food ready for you. The void is huge and I can't change that. I think that's what hurts most right now. I miss your nightly walks and how you took your time checking out all the smells you detected. You were one-of-a-kind and I wish you were still here with me now.

Mar. 19, 2022 I just decided to write to you again to tell you how much I miss you. You were my little girl and I can't believe you're gone. There are so many things I see that remind me of you that the idea of "time cures all" just isn't working. I feel so bad every time I think of you not being here anymore. I hope, somehow, you knew how much I loved you and how special you were to me. Rest now, Maddie, keep watch and wait for me.

Feb. 16, 2023 I knew this day would come. The past year has gone by quickly and I struggle to understand why you are gone. You had a long life, but I wanted you longer. The pain is still huge as I see reminders of you here. I think of you EVERY day. You were one of the 4 original Huskies in our pack and now you are with Satch, Sasha and Flame. You kept me on my toes every day and I loved it. I still leave a spot on the counter where I put your dish every day when I was getting the bowls ready for your dinner. I miss you talking to me, wanting me to go faster so you could eat. I miss our walks and I always will remember the time the owl swooped down on us and you were ready do battle. Please watch over Cooper as he learns the ropes. If he can be as great a dog as you were, it would be wonderful. To say "I miss you" is an understatement. Wait for me, little girl.

Feb. 16, 2024 It's been two years now since I last held you and it seems like forever. There are things I do everyday in our routine that remind me of you and it makes it hard to accept you are gone. I know I can't change that but I am still feeling the pain of not having you here with me. You were my little girl and I hope you knew that. Cooper reminds me of you with his goofy antics, his size and demeanor, but he's not you, and that's ok. Please know I do think of you every, every day, my little "Maddog". I will never forget how tough you were, but still a sweetheart. Please keep waiting for me. We will be together again, with all your brothers and sisters. I love you.

Please also visit Sasha.
