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.
