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..
