Our Madison

Clark and Maddie getting the playroom ready for Bella Ruth just a couple days before she was born. ( Clark had a horrible haircut for the occasion. Too funny!)
Clark was ALWAYS loving on Maddie.

Our sweet dog Maddie, or "Maa Maa" as Will Henry says, went to dog heaven after a short illness on Tuesday, October 28. She was a 14 year old chocolate lab that I had since my first days of teaching in Oklahoma. This has been an extremely big loss to our entire family. Chris, Clark and Bella Ruth are making a beautiful wood box for her, and I am making a quilt for the inside. Her final resting place will be on our lot under a Magnolia tree. It is very fitting because she spent the first 6 years of her life under a Magnolia tree in my backyard in OKC. We love you and miss you Maddie!

Oh, Chesnye...I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Maddie. I will whisper a prayer for you.

I am so sorry. She was such a great dog. You guys are in my prayers.
Love, Tracey

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It's hard to lose a pet (family member) that is such a part of your family. We lost our bulldog Max in the spring. Our home was just too quiet so we added Bozley to our family.
