Macy Jane

Tonight we lost an important member of our family, Macy -- also known as Macy Jane or May May. For 16 1/2 years Macy was a companion, playmate, and devoted pet to each of us.

Since I found out about the news this evening, I have thought about all Macy has been through with our family. She has moved to 3 states, watched as my sister and I grew up and moved away, and became a beloved friend to our children. Macy was a constant friend to us when we were missing our "old" friends after we moved. Despite my sister and I moving away from our parents' home, Macy always greeted us with the same love and affection each time we returned as she always had. And when Hoss lists everyone at Gigi and Grandpa's house, he doesn't stop with the humans, but continues through Macy and Rusty.

You will be greatly missed May May. You will always be remembered as an important part of our family and lives. Love ya Girl!

So sorry for your loss.
I know how hard it is to lose a fur-baby.
We are thinking about you and your family.

I am so sorry. When we lost of family dog, who was 16 at the time and had lived a wonderful full life, it was so hard on our family. He had been there with us through so much. I will be thinking of you and your family.

So sorry for your loss - although more than 16 years is a long life for a dog - doesn't feel like it to us when they pass away does it? We love our 4 legged friends - and truly empathize with the very real pain of that loss.
