McDuff

trisha57_nyOctober 25, 2009

I posted here when we first got him -- 7 years ago in January. He was six weeks old. I left my hometown and came to a place which was a huge, huge adjustment for me. I thought "a puppy".

I was blessed to get McDuff. He introduced me to new people, he laid beside me when I felt lonely, he was like my "little" savior. He grew to a big, beautiful 180lbs. and he was another person in our lives. He brought us laughter, humility, and absolutely showed us what life is all about. All this from a dog -- who knew.

He left us yesterday. I will never, ever, forget McDuff. He was my shining, shining beautiful light. I still can't believe he's gone, but I know he wouldn't want me to be so sad.

Before you go to bed tonight, please say a prayer for him..

All dogs go to heaven :-) I lost my baby over a year ago october 20, and I still cry over her. I feel your pain.

It is sad to hear he is gone, Trisha. Thanks for sharing him with us. I got to hug a big puppy of a St. Bernard at Pet Smart recently, and it was such a wonderful experience. I know you will miss the big guy, I am thinking of him and your family tonight.

When I saw the title of this post I knew what it meant. I'm so sorry he's gone.
What a partnership you had with each other, but it's not over; he will continue to live in your heart forever.

How wonderful that McDuff had someone who loved him as much as you did. He knew you loved him and he loved you back.

The tears will flow, but in time the memories you have of your wonderful life together will ease the pain.
