We Miss You Mai-Li

.


One year ago today, we lost our beloved Mai-Li Louise.  She went peacefully in her sleep and had eaten well earlier that evening and was even watching TV and playing just an hour before she passed. 

Mai-Li was such as special doggie, she loved to watch TV and never missed a dog on screen.  She also adored "Maxwell" the Geico piggy - she would get up on the arm of the chair or the little table she would be lying on and almost dance with excitement and had a special bark for Maxwell.  =)

Mai-Li loved to go for walks with Bill and I but because of her breathing problems, didn't always last the full walk.  So she liked to snuggle close to my heart either in my arms, in a carrier, or even in the pouch of my overalls.



We miss you Mai-Li so much, there are so many things every day that remind me of you.  You were such a special little lady and I'm so glad that you were in our lives, if only for a short time.  Thank you for giving us so many memories and so much love; and thank you for letting us care for your babies, Mumbo and Wiggles.  We are taking really good care of them, and love them, too.


Here are a few photos of our beloved Mai-Li just to show you how adorable she was and how much she meant to us....










Rest in peace, Mai-Li, I hope you are enjoying your time as you play over the Rainbow Bridge.

It's hard to believe it's been a year already. I remember when you posted of her passing. :( I know you miss her terribly. She'll always be with you in your heart - I know that's not the same but it helps.

But look at all those beautiful babies you have to help soothe your sorrow! Memories are good, but sometimes they should only be taken out when you can handle them. HUGS

Aw, what a sweet tribute to a beautiful and most definitely loved little girl! I know how much you love and adore all your little fur babies and I, too, can't believe it's already been a year.

She was adorable and I am sure she's having fun over the rainbow bridge - along with some of my fur babes too!

I am so sorry for your loss. We had the anniversary of our beloved bulldog's passing on 1/2. It's so hard. Even with another dog and two children, it's still hard and I think of her everyday. Hopefully it is getting somewhat easier for you and is comforting you're able to are for her puppies.

Aww, I am so sorry for your loss. We lost one of our cats last year and it is always difficult. :(

AWWW! I know that feeling! We lost our Lab suddenly a few years ago! We always called her mischief! She was always getting into stuff but was SUCH a sweet heart. ((HUGS))
