|About Mac... After doing Boxer rescue for a little while, I decided
that I needed to take a little break and not bring any more new dogs into
our home...it was really taking a toll on Manny and Gina, as well as my
new husband, our marriage and life together in a new town...Well, I got
a call and said ok..just one more time. The owner was desparate...leaving
town that night and the other rescue person he contacted wouldn't take
a white. Mac stepped out of the car and he was home for good. We had him
out on a look see that first day, and he came back to us..too big, too
old, to many physical problems for these folks...Manny and Gina adjusted...then
another family came to see him but they decided it was too soon after losing
their 14 year old rottie...and that was it for me. He wasn't going anywhere
again. He was going to stay with us forever. We adored him from the moment
we met him and hated to see him even go out for the "look sees", but we
thought three big dogs was just too much in our little house. When there
is so much love around, somehow you all fit and he certainly did. He took
over our hearts and our lives. Mac was a neglected dog, tied up alone outside
for years..no shots, no vet visits...he had 4 kinds of cancer and severe
ear infections when we got him. But he responded to the attention and love.
Even though he had some harsh times, the last years of his life were filled
with affection and love. He went everywhere with me, 24-7. As my husband
said, "He was riding shotgun" and loving it. Everyone loved Mac. He was
the favorite with the neighborhood kids..They come by to walk the dogs
and they all wanted to walk Big Mac.
missed by many. He was a special dog.
