Loyal Mac

by Claire Minnis
(County Down)

You left me yesterday. I miss you with all my heart. I know you have had a lot of suffering in your life and the relief to go to sleep peacefully was wonderful.

I hope you are with Judy and Sunny, and you are all happy. I miss you all terribly and the house feels so empty.

Mac, you just loved life. You could look into my soul. You loved to swim and cause me many a fright. Like the time you disappeared in Clare glen and put me into a mad panic. Any excuse you could find you were into the water even if there were swans unhappy with your presence.

In your later years you haven't been able to do so much but the will was there. You always loved to hobble after a ball.

You loved your food and that was the case until your last minutes.

You have been with me through thick and thin. I remember when things were bad for me, you licked the tears from my face.

You have left a massive hole in my life. I know that I will never get another dog like you. I'm sure you're now running free with no pain and enjoying cuddling up to Judy. I hope you're happy.

Love you always.
