A Farewell to Mako 2000-2013

A Farewell to Mako 2000-2013

I am very sad to report that our beloved Mako passed away on Friday afternoon. Mako was 13 years old at her passing. She was dealing and living with congestive heart failure. Four different pills made up the cocktail of medicines that kept her alive for the last fourteen months of her life. A blockage  in her urinary tract, that was thought to be cancer, lead us to the tough decision that had to be made. Her medications made her thirsty, which made her drink lots of water. The last week of her life she could not pee and her bladder was to set to burst.  Due to her heart condition, surgery was not an option and probably would not have helped anyways. A great thank you to the wonderful staff at Lakeside Animal Hospital and to Dr Fernandez and Dr Bahr. They took very good care of her, especially during her senior years.

She was the runt of a litter of eight when I found her. Her mother appeared to be part pit bull and part beagle. She was indeed a mutt, and a special find. Throughout her years Mako & I went on many adventures, and she occupied a large period of my life. During my days as a bachelor she was the rock that kept me grounded, for she needed me and I needed her.  Mako also accompanied me through the beginning of my relationship and eventual marriage to Kristin. We were then blessed to have our daughter Lexie. All that time I was growing as a person, my dog Mako was there at my side.

Kristin and I miss her very much. Lexie probably won’t remember her, but we have lots of pictures of her and Mako that she will look at as she grows older. Trouble Mac D is now our only dog and seems to be in a funk. She senses how upset we are and walks around the house looking for Mako. We are all grieving and only time will heal the hole in our hearts.

Our favorite memories are of her running and playing at the Elephant Beach house. Chasing crabs, tearing apart coconuts, swimming in the ocean, and hanging out at Nippers & Grabbers will be some of our most treasured memories.  Mako will make one final trip to Guana Cay in the Bahamas. We plan on spreading her ashes on the beach over looking the Atlantic ocean.

Mako was a good dog………We love her!

 

 

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
