One of the saddest things we have to do when we love animals is be brave enough to know when it is time to let them go.
Although it is extremely hard to make the decision when they are ill, old, or not thriving, the greatest gift we can give them is to be with them until the end.
Today was the day I had to say goodbye to Maeve aka Mae Mae. It was guesstimated she was 15 years old by her teeth (or lack thereof) and her body composition. She had a full bag of treats and a special dinner last night. Then her lunch today was fishy and smelly and she LOVED it.
She has always been frail and her fur has always been unkept but she lived her life with grace and spunk! When she was eating and someone else tried to steal her food, she told them who was boss and no one messed with Mae Mae!
Her favorite thing was sitting on laps and just being loved. She was a little princess. Brittany saved her from the shelter in 2013 where she was scheduled to be euthanized. I don't remember the circumstances but Brittany can tell you. All I know is she is in a better place taking care of all of those we have lost. I told her to find my mom and dad so she would have two laps to lay on forever.
Rest In Peace little lady. Gone but never forgotten❤
