9 years ago I "rescued" this sweet boy. Turns out, he ended up rescuing me - we endured 3 evacuations, life on the road after Katrina, and all kinds of ups and downs together. He was my constant companion and just about perfect in every way. He brought love wherever he went.

One of his favorite past-times was sleeping - in his little bed and his big bed (aka my bed).
We moved into our new house in April 2013.

But, he warmed up to him and hopefully some of Mackie's perfection rubbed off on Harry. Time will tell.

Sadly, my sweet boy got sick in July and I lost him on August 19, 2013. He loved me with his whole being, and taught me so much about kindness, love, and joy.
As his final resting place, I put his ashes in his treat tin - I can't think of a place he would rather spend all eternity. Rest in peace, my sweet Mackie.
