Maddie..... 1997 to 2010

This is probably the hardest post that I have had to write so far... as this was one of those decisions that nobody ever wants to make. Today, we had to put Maddie our 13 year old Portugese Water Dog down. She has been not 100% for a while, and it was waiting for the right time, and unfortunately, her time was now. She was an intricate part of our family and we will miss her dearly - Cheers to Maddie

Dave will miss you!!!

(Do you think Colin may become instantly rich and famous when he writes a number 1 hit country song about his current life?)


  1. Hi Kelly,
    So sorry to hear what you are going through. My thoughts are with you.

  2. So sorry to hear about Maddie Kell, it's so hard - they become such a big part of the family.

  3. Thinking of you. I remember getting our lab Bailey around the same time that you got Maddie and he died this past March. Very difficult and timing is rarely sorry to hear about Maddie.

  4. R.I.P. Maddie dog

  5. Sorry to hear about all the sadness, it must be very hard right know, keep your strong spirit up and I will continue to send some your way.

    Take care

  6. As we tell the boys, it's the circle of life. not always that comforting though. As for Colin, he's already richer for having you and famous by association. :P

  7. Hi Kelly
    So sorry to hear about Maddie. I do how difficult that decision is. Good to hear you are coming home. Give me a call if you need anything.
    Thinking of you.

  10. Kelly: what an crazy journey you are on. Know that we are thinking about you and praying that you and your doctor's will figure this all out fast and get you back your life. What a brave and great idea it is to do your blog. Love from all the McKee's in Ajax.
