A Broken Heart on Christmas



Madison
August 20, 1998 - December 24, 2010

We lost our girl this morning.  She's the blondie in the front.
She's had several strokes over the last 13 days.
She had one this morning and I knew this one was bad.
She looked me in the eye and I knew she wasn't going to make it.
I loved her up and told it was ok to close her eyes and go to heaven.
I told her I loved her and she soon passed.
She will be missed.

I am so sorry Sue for the loss of your beloved Madison. I know she's been having a hard time and probably didnt want to leave you. That was very strong of you to let her go to heaven. I hope she finds my Tally and my Midnight and they can play together.
Big hug for you my friend. I know how hard this must be on you and your family my prayers go out to you as the tears run down my cheeks. Hugs Bonnie

Hi Sue, I've never visited your blog, but stumbled across it today, which is xmas day in Australia. I can't imagine a day without one of my two labrador girl's, and I can only send my love and prayer's your way to you and your family.
You had 12 precious years with Madison, and she will never leave your hearts. xoxo
