I wasn’t going to write anything, because it feels odd sharing something like this, but on the flip side I need to honor her memory and share just how much she meant to us.
As my sister so eloquently wrote, “Lost a family member today…Mackenna, you were so much more than a pet, you were a sister. Rest in peace…3/99 – 6/13”
Mack was a rescue pup from North Shore Animal League. I still remember driving there and almost dying because my mom tried to drive onto the off ramp for the parkway. Diana picked her out immediately, she knew this dog was special.
I am missing some of my older files so the earliest I have are from 2006, (also some of these are with old point and shoot cameras).
Mack (Chennapup, Angel Baby Cookie Face, Macka, Macaroni, Mama, Mackenna) loved toys. Especially those with a squeaker. She liked specifically to kill the squeaker. Rip open the toy, find the source of the noise and DESTROY IT.
She was one of the smartest dogs I know. She just decided one day to start bringing in the newspaper. She also was patient when we tortured her with crazy outfits.
Odie came into the picture in about 2007, Mack and he got along. Mostly because he allowed her to remain queen of the castle.
Then Jack was rescued (we’re a big rescue family) and Mack didn’t take too kindly to the yougin’ trying to nose his way in.
She was terrified of thunder and lightning, one time on a walk a crack of thunder caused her to escape the leash and make a run for the house with me trailing behind. She loved treats, and to nose my mom in the butt until she got one. She loved her kong, and to run around the backyard “hunting” for cats. She loved to chew on bones until her teeth fell out. Most of all she loved us and we loved her.
Baby girl we will miss you so much.
